I bought this last weekend and started a dynasty. It's pretty sweet. I haven't had a baseball game for a couple years now, but I really enjoy this one.

I love the game but there are a few things about the game I don't like.

1. Very few errors when you are playing. I've played 2 months worth of a season with the White Sox and I might get an error every week or two.

2. I was playing on the all star level and was just on fire. Had most of my batters batting over .300, lots of Hr's(lots of solo shots), very few RBI's. I have moved up to Hall of Fame level now, so it's harder but my pitchers have been getting rocked.

3. If you tag a SP for even a couple of runs early, they will pull the SP. Not realistic at all. If CC Sabathia gives up 2 runs in the first 2 innings, he shouldn't be pulled. You have no chance to put up 6,7,8 runs on a pitcher.

There is a cool feature where you can guess the pitch and its location and if you get it right the game basically lets the hitter lock in. I thought that was cool. Just pray David Ortiz doesn't do that cause the ball is leaving quickly if he does.

Last year's ESPN game had that as well... :-b And they have a ton of new features on both sides of the ball this time around.

The Show is only for PS2 and PSP. I was thinking about getting it for my PSP, but I'll just wait for 2K6 on the 360! ;-D

They have great commercials. I love the one about Madison and his wild but short-lived pitching career. ;-D
