I was just wondering if anyone else is extremely frustrated with this game. It seems to have a tremendous amount of little stupid quirks. Ex- having an outfielder set up under the ball and then another outfielder comes out of nowhere and collides with teammate to miss the ball. Also, the large number of homeruns hit, especially solo homeruns.

Any suggestions on how to make this game more enjoyable and not so frustrating would be great. Also any suggestions on how to draft a team and pitch.

Anyone know how to make money? lol......I did a fantasy draft, currently have a 30-12 record and I'm on pace to lose nearly 13 million. I set the tickets at 20$.

Up the ticket prices lol...But seriously, it's going to be tough to make money because the team you drafted exceeded the team's budget.

I think the games fun, but I had to switch the pitching settings back to the regular settings because the new pitching system is just way too tough. I tried to master it for like 3 days, and I still sucked at it.

**** this game! I can't stand it when the outfielders go into slow motion before they enter the circle to catch the ball and then miss it. Anyone know how to prevent this?

The 3rd post has to do with Calling for the Ball so you avoid a collision.

I think the game is pretty fun, I don't have it but my buddy does and we play when I'm at his house so I don't have a ton of experience.

I really don't like 2k8 or the show, I'm hoping 09 produces better games for baseball

I've had it for like 2 weeks, but haven't opened it yet. Can't decide if I want to keep it or return it.

Is it really that much better?

I bought 2k8 right away because 2k7 was better than the show 07 but it seems like this year. The Show won. But I don't wanna get another baseball game.

2K8 is pretty fun, multi player fantasy drafts are really fun and once you get it out of your head that they are going to rob your homerun every time they can, it's ok

Really cleaned it up in the second game, but still lost 2-4. I'm really enjoying this game. It might even be the best baseball game I have ever played. They've made the pitching fun, something that no other ones have done.

MVP 2005 is still the best baseball game ever. I'm not going to buy another baseball game until EA gets the MLB license back. The other baseball franchises are clearly inferior to it. I will take gameplay over a roster update any day of the week.

QFT!!!

There hasn't been a game close yet. I still love to play it over the new ones even though the rosters are awful now.

Good dificulty, not to hard to pitch, not to hard to hit, expansion mode, create stadiums and teams along with the mascot and draft players like expansion [had fantasy option as well but that was alot different]. Best baseball game ever.
