    The Show is made by Sony.

    Pitchers:
    Gallardo
    David Price
    Homer Bailey
    Volquez
    Buccholz
    IMO, that team's not better than this year's team. Gonzalezz is the heart of your offense, depending on how Bruce and Maybin develop. The pitchers are good and young. How have they developed so far?
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    Bruce, Cueto, and Roenicke are in the show? I thought that they didn't put the youngsters in the game. Last year Bailey wasn't on it.

    If you don't mind, can you give me some of the ratings of the youngsters? Thanks.

    The MLB signed an exclusive deal with 2KSports to be the only 3rd party distributer for MLB sports. So the only folks who can produce a baseball video game is 1st party manufactuers IE Sony or 2kSports.

    It was 2k's answer to EA Sports Madden Deal.

    I went to my local Best Buy yesterday to buy a PS3 and this game. They had about 100 PS3 in stock but no game. Lots of games for my Wii though... It will be interesting to see if PS3 system sales pickup with the Blue-Ray format win. That sealed the deal for me.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    It seems kind of illogical though only because you can buy Madden for any platform whereas the Show you can only buy for Sony. Ugh.

    Sorry, I should have clarified that I created Bruce, Cueto, and Roenicke.

    The Ump is squeezing me, and my 3b can't catch a ball without a butterfly net! But I've added a 4th pitch- a cutter- and it's developing nicely.

    I love RTTS! I think I'll start a second one as a catcher...

    True, but the Madden deal eliminated NFL gaming competition from 2K sports for all platforms, and the 2k deal eliminated EA Sports MVP baseball. Thankfully unlike the NFL deal this deal allowed 1st parties to keep making theirs, so Sony stayed in the game.

    Stupid companies.

    I get why Sony won't manufacture the Show for Xbox, but they could make a lot of money by making it available to the other platforms. I'm not convinced that "The Show" is an elite enough game that someone would buy a PS3 just so they could play it. I could be wrong and I'm sure it doesn't hurt someone that is on the fence.

    Adrian Gonzalez hit 50 homers in '09 and Atkins had 140rbi. Bruce and Maybin are both 83 overall at age 22.

    All of the pitchers are developing well and I signed Harden 94 overall over the offseason which moves Volquez to the bullpen. Gallardo is 90 overall already and Price/Bucholz and Bailey are ~82.

    Thanks. That's what I usually do. I just thought it might be different this year.

    The Show rates Bailey as a B prospect. Are the makers RedZone members?
    Witty signature.
