I just played another game before and got rolled 13-1 as the A's against the Mariners. The AI was swinging and making contact with absolutely everything, pitches on the corners, outside the zone, well outside the zone. They were hyper aggressive all game. Their pitching was brutal as well, they barely threw any balls and were 95% strike on the first pitch, it was impossible to work the count.

The three games I have played post patch have all had a pitch count of below 70 for me, which shows the lack of patience at the plate from the CPU. I was using Inside Edge and pitching to their cold zones but they were still swinging away and making good contact almost everytime. Is it just me or are there hardly any foul balls in this game?
Are you sure you have the patch? These things were supposedly all issues at the top of their list. Just seems weird to me we are hearing such mixed things.

I am playing right now, against the Padres and through 5 innings i have thrown 61 pitches and them 55. Score is 1-0. Playing on All Star settings.

I take pitches though. I dont swing at the first pitch much. Once in a while, but i am patient.

I'm sure I have it. The first post patch game I played was great but after that its been horrible.

any word on being able to substitute a pitcher when you're up to bat. i know its little, but it takes away from the game, when you're in the NL and you pinch hit, and the pinch hitter is warming up the next inning on the mound. just looks weird..

This thread is lacking in impressions- 90% of the posts are about people complaining about something or other. For people looking for impressions, it'd be greatly appreciated if those comments went elsewhere.

I'm guessing not that many people are playing the game on ps3, We'll probly have more once the 360 patch drops.

First, thank you to the few people on this board actually posting impressions about the stuff they were supposed to fix.

OF Glitch
- I'm hearing that people are saying this is better now, but other people are saying they're still seeing clear drops/whiffs in situations where the ball should be caught. This is a concern. Honestly, the OF "slowdown" thing is poor game design, but it's not the major glitch people make it out to be because I've found that it generally happens only when your outfielder is locked into catching a ball. I think of it as an "auto assist"--as long as he catches the ball, I'm okay with it for this year. It's when you have full control of your fielder and he doesn't lock in to the flyball that the misses seem to occur, and THAT's the major problem. If some people say "it's better" and others say they still see it, that makes me think that it isn't fixed at all, because in the pre-patch version, you can go several innings without seeing it happen anyway.

1B Tag Glitch - I'm hearing less people mention this as an issue, so I hope it has been well-addressed in the patch. Even though the OF glitch bothers me more (b/c the 1B glitch only costs you one runner/base, whereas the OF glitch causes game-changing catastrophes), the 1B glitch should be more frequently seen. However, it sounds like the developers were screwing with the throwing meter, possibly as a work-around for this problem, which they might not be able to correct on its own.

Can you even do that via a patch??
