Re: MLB 2k9 Questions Thread ...

Just got an interesting trade proposal from the Rays ...

Crawford
Kazmir
Shields

for

Castillo
Reyes
Wright

Apparently they think Jim Duquette is still in charge.

Anyway, simmmed through season one to take a look at the offseason. Mets vs. Yankees in the World Series.

2. Can you give us a list of what you can edit, I know you stated accessories but something like, cleats, batting gloves, really worried about the gray cleats on the rays. I hope all the teams are not set to a team color and there fore we can't change them. Thanks for the insight.
1) Yes.

2) Full control to edit equipment as if the player was brand new. So if you wanted to go into the roster while in a franchise and edit every players shoes you could.

Anyway, regarding cursor hitting. Will we somehow influence where we want to place the ball on the field? I.E., (right handed hitter) to pull, swing early, or to go with the pitch, swing late. Flyballs or groundballs?
Yes, this is what the left stick is for. If you are a righty ...

L - Pull
L and D - Groundball pull
L and U - Flyball pull
U - Flyball
D - Groundball
R - Opposite field
R and D - Groundball opposite way
R and U - Flyball opposite way

Really helps with situational hitting. i.e. Reyes gets on, steals second, then have Castillo try and hit a grounder to the right side of the infield to advance Reyes to third.

3. I saw that 2K got Pepsi as a sponsor, do they have the Pepsi bottle at PNC Park?

I think I might be the only Bucco fan in this post...haha
1 - Haven't noticed this. Just scanned the Yankees and all their uniform numbers make sense a year into the franchise.

(Although they have Dice-K and Hideki Okajimi on the roster, which is a head scratcher - and neither were free agents).

2 - Got a link some where that shows what they are supposed to look like?

3 - Yup there's a Pepsi bottle above the right field bleachers.

Haven't noticed anything weird about the first baseman.

Question

I have over heard that there is no exhibition mode

just a Play Now mode

I have heard that when your playing in Play Now mode you will always play against there ace.

Now my question is

Isn't there a roster section, not in franchise mode but a roster section where you can adjust Lineups and Rotations?

So if this is true how hard is it to change the pitcher to who you do want to face and save it then go to Play Now. Thats if you can do this?

Answer please... this will tell me if I buy this game
