I sometimes think it's a bit cheap to change the difficulty settings in video games but I justified it in this case because I think it's cheap the computer makes you spend most of the game diving back to first if you want your guy to be a base thief. :-b My pickoff slider is almost a zero and he still picks off a lot. It's just not completely ridiculous anymore.

I'm still playing the '08 version but I'm into my 12th season of Road to the Show. The only thing I regret is making my guy an outfielder. Mostly I just want to bat so I get little annoyed if my fielder gets too much action in left. If I could change it I would take a first baseman since I assume there are less defensive plays to make.

My best season was with Cincy I batted just over .400 with 65 homers and 183 RBI. I've since signed with the Yankees in an attempt to break Hack Wilson's RBI record but three years into my contract I still can't get back over 180. If I still haven't beat it by the end of my five year term I'm gonna try to move to Coors or Texas to try to beat Bonds' home run record. I don't want that dirty record in my video game. :-b

Quite the contrary regarding less action for a 1B. You are actually involved in every ground ball out during the game. I enjoy it, but I would probably have played almost twice as many games if I picked a different position.

I made a bet in 2003 that the Devil Rays would win the 2008 World Series. Oh so close.

It's not done as a slider I dont think it's under the area where umpire consistency is,

Well I don't feel like looking back on this thread, so i'll just ask.... is this game worth $60?

If you don't already have The Show 08 then yes, it is definitely worth $60. If you already have 08 then I don't think the few changes they made are worth the $60. Unless you want to pay that much just for the updated rosters.

Great game! I have it for the PS3, and the graphics in HD are incredible. Dynasty AND Road to the Show are both awesome modes to play, and very addicting. I normally play these types of game online a lot, but I have been so busy with my created guy, I haven't played more than 5 online games (5-0 btw! ;-D )
I am going to buy Tiger Woods 10 tomorrow, but will be torn as to which I will play more, until NCAA Football 10 comes out, of course.
Too much to do, not enough time!

I do enjoy the updated roster they put out, McClouth(SP?) has been traded to the Braves and Glavine is now a FA but Hanson wasn't added this week, so I'm a bit dissapointed in that. But overall been rather happy.
