So is MVP Baseball better than the Triple Play series? I always disliked that series because of its arcade style.

MVP Baseball 2003 was despicable (at least the PC version). 2004 could change, but I'd take High Heat over either any day.

I think the consensus is...yes. :-) I hope this dynasty mode is good. 2003's franchise mode was...sub-par to say the least.

What didn't you like? Because I have been partial to High Heat since its second year, but I've become very disappointed in that series.

You want a list?

1)The gameplay. Errors almost never happened, hits were too easy, striking people out was too easy. Not realistic enough.
2)The minor leagues. The box said "in depth minor league system". Nothing close to it. 15 players that fill a 40-man roster. Not even close to HH2004's actual minor league system.
3)Too easy. In 80 games I was 79-1. The only game I lost, eight of my pitchers were injured.
4)Stolen bases. If you dived in headfirst, you were safe.
5)Umpires. They were wrong a lot. I'd tag the guy well before he hit the base, and they were safe.
6)Rookie Draft. Not even close to realistic.
7)Simulation. Guys were hitting .400 with 100 HR's and 200 RBI, and their ratings were something like 40 for hitting (not good) and 80 for power (marginal).

I could give you more, but I think this is good enough for now.

I got All-Star Baseball 2004 for X-mas. How does it rank up against the games that you speak of?

I am looking for a game where I can limit the amount of teams and basically replicate the rosters of my 14 team keeper league. This did not exactly go over too well with All-Star Baseball 2004, but I could do it if I wanted to kill 20 hours.

Any thoughts?

That's exactly what I was looking for. I wasn't disputing you. I just hadn't played the game. Thanks. ;-D
