I'm not so picky about that, as I am when the minor league players tell me they "don't like their spot in the lineup" in the Team Pulse.

also, it seems prospects never pan out. i have a gm mode where im about four and a half years into the season and most prospects are still around a 60 overall rating.

Anyone tried MLB 06 or the other games?

I have EA MVP NCAA 06 and it's a decent game, but it's tough to get invested without the major leaugers.

I've read some reviews though and I would agree that the game play is improved over 05 and the new changes are a big upgrade.

Its a pretty fun game. Takes some getting used to, but still fun. Agree with some of the complaints on fielding and throwing people out.

Updated rosters on Live are a big plus. Anyone play online? I started playing a few days ago, its very fun.

Everyone talks about this, but I've never managfed to experience it myself. The outfielders seem quite normal when I play.

I've experienced this quite a bit. You hit a ball in the gap, and it rolls to the wall and sometimes can't even get a double out of it. A bunch of things like that happen to me all the time. Even with rapidly pressing the button for turbo. Also, I threw out Aaron Rowand at first base on the force with a line drive to LF.

SuperSlugger360 wrote:3) Fielding in a way. It will cost you a few games.

This is the main thing. The fielders are a bit slow to respond initially, and any change in your running direction takes too long to make. Plus, the middle-infielders seem to take their time throwing to first.

This is also wicked annoying. Today I was in the top of the 9th of a 1-1 game and there was 1 on 1 out. Endy Chavez hits a ground ball to 2B. Double play ball. Aaron Miles flips the ball to Eckstein at 2nd, and Eckstein just stands there and the ball goes by him. He didn't even attempt ot catch it.

What level do you guys play on? I'm at All-Star now. Sometimes I'll win 16-1 and other times it's a really close game.

Agreed with those above problems mentioned, they are a pain. A few others:

1) Slow reaction time (ties into the 2nd one teddy ballgame referred to)
2) Automatically rounding 1st base. Its a pain online, so thats why you have to join leagues that don't allow it.

I play on All-Star as well. I have a lot of problems winning with the Rockies (not a surprise probably since the team isn't very good on that). I drafted a fantasy team which I call the Young Guns. All players are under 24 years old. I'm doing well with them.

What don't the leagues allow? Throwing those guys out? You can press the R trigger as they're running to first and they won't round the base.
