Other than the intentional walk I got with Morneau, didn't see one - but swung at pitches out of the zone often..

Walks, while part of the real sport, are not really something I look for in a video game.

For me, I play with all presentations, since I haven't made any adjustments to that yet . I have been "hurrying up" the in-between pitch sequences to get the batter back in the box..

Normally - took about 30-45 minutes for me

Then why the need for such a ghastly bat cursor?

More of a rhetorical question, actually.

I hope someone posts sliders using the cursor. I prefer cursor-based hitting, especially since this year the directional hitting seems kinda easy.

I just finished my first game, Atlanta-Pittsburgh, won the game 4-3. Chipper and Mccann both got homers. Pittsburgh started to rally, but I brought in Mike Gonzalez to close and he only allowed one hit in the 9th. Great game.

Re: ***Official MLB 2K9 Retail Version Impressions***

I've started my franchise and have played 2 games on Allstar as the Mets. I lost the opener but won my second game.

Mets 3 11 1
Reds 5 13 0

Mets 17 21 2
Reds 3 8 0

The second game was rofl worthy with the amount of hr's I hit. So I saw that Guru had a slider up, downloaded that and gave it a shot. I've noticed less hr's and alot more small ball type scoring. Going to give Legend a try next.

Re: ***Official MLB 2K9 Retail Version Impressions***

Has anyone tried the draft in franchise yet?

Perhaps Simballer could answer this question, but was just curious if the majority of players drafted are still under 6'foot, and have unusually high jersey numbers when signed (i.e. 99 and 100)? Was a big gripe of mine throughout 2K8.
