    Current as of:
    Hey guys -- I'm a huge fan of this game and put together the
     moves needed to get the rosters up to date, since I imagine
     we'll be playing this quite a bit. I'll try to keep this updated as 
    offseason moves happen.
    Note that a "-" denotes a pitching change, and a * denotes a 
    hitting change.
    To make these moves, you must have unlocked . From that 
    point, go to "arrange team creation," and hit create on each 
    square, and then choose the corresponding team. You should 
    end up with all 30 teams on the grid. You can go into each team's 
    page then, and change players. PLEASE NOTE! If you replace a 
    player, it will ONLY do it for that team. So if you replace Josh 
    Phelps with Jose Molina as the Yankees, Molina WILL be on the 
    Yankees but will still be on the Angels. I've included moves for all 
    teams so that players are placed on one team and then removed 
    from another. 
    Also there is no way (that I can find) to place players from teams 
    ON the free agent list. So for players who were cut, I left them on 
    the AAA roster of the last team they belonged to (ie. Chan Ho 
    Park, John Mabry, etc.). Also please edit team lineups and rotations 
    while you do these, to my knowledge the computer will not auto-adjust 
    to the best ideas usually. Also if you place any of the players in FA 
    (VandenHurk, Owings, etc.) there will be duplicates when you start 
    the year, so I left them off the list.
    After you've finished moves, you can go to "Season" -- 
    "From Beginning" -- "Normal" -- "Major League Team Mode" -- 
    "Enter Arrange Team" -- and then setup the edited teams overlapping 
    their counterparts.
