if you go to game modes exhibition you have total control over all of that; starting pitcher, batting order, uniform, maybe even the weather i don't know

yes it is an issue..but all you have to do is lower the throw meter influence slider..

You cannot adjust the CPU Line-up including Starting Pitcher in Play Now Mode...

in play now mode:

you can change your line ups and pitchers and defensive positions and weather and time of day and stadium

but you cant edit anything for the cpu

so you will always play vs the other teams ace

unless you do what somebody suggested which is create 4 diff roster files for play now and in each just change the pitching rotations around and use the roster named starter #2 or 3 or 4

sucks but that is what we have to deal with

Re: MLB 2k9 Questions Thread ...



- Is there a franchise news/headline tracker like 2K's MLB.COM where I can read things about my franchise and also the MLB on a day to day basis with pictures as well?

- I've seen pics of a Tony Gwyn statue outside of Petco Park in San Diego, is there something like this shown for each team outside the stadium prior to a franchise game.?

- How does the CPU handle the trading of star players?

- How does the CPU handle free agent signings?

- Is there a GM aspect of the franchise mode where I can change ticket prices, transportation, overall budget, and is there any owner goals that I have to meet?

- Do players have personality traits that will effect either team chemistry or free agent signings?

Free Agnets don't sign and top players get released as "CAP CASUALTIES" but a patch is in place for this on tuesday.

I hadn't heard this, but had a feeling it was tied to the throw meter. Thanks, Guru!
