I cannot lay off high fastballs.  Korey-itus when it comes to that on this game.  But, I think it might be because of the pitch speed setting I'm using...I have it cranked up pretty high.

How do you make the pitcher or catcher throw quickly to first on tappers in front of the mound?  My pitcher shuffles a few times and then throws and gives up cheap singles far too often.

Are you preloading your throws?

Yeah, he still lollygags.  If I preload the meter full, he throws it into RF.

Damn...don't know what to tell you except that play it just as I would any other infielder play.  Preload to yellow and he usually takes care of it pretty normally.  Are you up to date on your patches?

Yeah, I'll have to try to time it right so it goes into yellow and not red.  All patches up to date.

DPD.  This game is bizarre.  How does a 26-year-old, three-time Cy Young winner not get a contract offer after hitting free agency?

Why does it seem like I can't get any good command from my pitchers?  I want to nibble the corners, miss the little pitch meter mark by a tick and it's outside by four inches.

Against my better instincts, I picked up Major League Baseball 2K11 for $10.  Holy fuck, The Show makes that game look even more awful than it actually is.  The only TINY advantage 2K11 has over MLB '11 was that the presentation and commentary is surprisingly good.  But I heard that's the biggest thing they're overhauling for MLB '12.  Meaning even at $10, 2K12 won't be worth it.

DPD.  So, I switch back to The Show, and during some downtime, the P.A. announcer at Wrigley tells me to be sure to get my subscription to Vineline.  The 2K series has absolutely no chance of ever catching up to this game.

2K's license is up after 2012's game I believe.  I read a while back that both parties are not interested in reupping the deal.  Don't know what this means for MLB on XBOX, but maybe a return of EA to baseball.

Either way, if you have a PS3 there's no reason to ever buy a 2K baseball game.
