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. 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.
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.
