This is the year wrote:I'm playing every game of this year with the Red Sox in Dynasty mode, I just got up to date in the real season last night. Thus far I've traded for Durham (great in the game) to be my starter at second, and last night I pulled off a trade of Millar and minor leaguers for Aubrey Huff. Tonight I'm going to get rid of the Fat Man and see if I can get Halladay
Man, that game is fun. What settings do people play on? I've found that I can rarely hit for power on All Star (what I play the season on), but I'm a pretty good gap/contact hitter. Pitching is way too easy though - I must have 10 CGSO, and Arroyo's looking like the early season AL cy young (2.05 ERA, 1 perfect game, 8 wins). Anybody have any hitting tips? I usually play with pitch cursor off, vibration off, hitter's eye on, strike zone and hot and cold zones off, throw meter off.
Edit: fair trades and budgets ON!
Work the count in your favour and sit on the fastball. I find hitting in MVP mode needs more patience than anything else.
The thing I can't handle in MVP mode is the MVP fielding. There's no help from the computer. It's tough.
