    The developer stream for MLB The Show 20 centered on Road to the Show and Franchise Mode was held yesterday putting on display the new additions and improvements.

Unfortunately it's shaping up to be another disappointing year for Franchise Mode. Limited rebranding rather than the "relocation" being adver...
