Use the following trick to get a lot of money in Franchise mode. Go to your calendar before a home game. Make the normal choices needed to play a game (controller, pitcher selection, etc.). Then at the line up screen, exit all the way back to your calendar. You will receive the revenue for that game. Repeat this as many times as desired. It is a good idea to only do this on home games as you will receive the advertising, ticket, and concession revenue. For example, with a team like Kansas City or Tampa Bay, you will only get a small amount of money, but it will increase your attendance. Also, do not do this during spring training or opening day as you will not receive any money.
Use the following trick to easily steal bases in Career mode. When you are on second base with two outs, the man covering the base is far behind. Tap R1 to step out. Keep tapping R1 until the runner goes for third base. The pitcher will throw to second base, then to third. You will have time to reach the base safely. Sometimes the pitcher will step out and will not throw the ball. If that happens, press L1 to return to second base.
Put your closer in the game at the start of the seventh inning and use him for the rest of the game.
Set up a game in your franchise as usual. However, instead of choosing your franchise team, choose the team you are facing. When you start the game, let your franchise's starting pitcher strike out as many players on the other team as possible. When it is your turn to pitch, use only fastballs down the middle. This will result in the player hitting a home run or a regular hit to the position players. If the batter hits a pop up, ground ball, or line drive, let the ball drop. If possible, let the ball roll away from you. Do not pick up the ball; just stand near it enough so the base runners keep running around the bases. This will give your players many inside the park home runs. If you need to stop the base runner where he is, throw the ball in as he approaches the base.
In the offseason when you are resigning free agents, there is a very effective way of saving a lot of money for free agency without changing stats. Instead of lowering and raising stats, just go to "View Roster" and convert all of your starters and closers into relievers. Resign all of them to small deals worth at most about $3 million a year. Once you sign them, change them back into their original position. It may not sound like much, but if you have a $19 million pitcher like Johan Santana, it can be a lot of free money. This will also work with turning slow players into the 2B or SS position and resigning them, or turning small players into the C or 1B position and resigning them.
There is a rookie pitcher on the Boston Red Sox with the name "Tate Baik". He is actually Daisuke Matsuzaka.
When you start Career mode, play as a switch hitting catcher. Improve your Contact (Left and Right), Power (Left and Right), and Speed, but nothing else until you are out of the minors or spring training. You are not called on a lot to throw out runners because most of the time the hitters will hit pop-ups or lay down bunts.
