I'm with you Joe...It's a little more complicated than Guru has put it, IMO.

Something that I'm noticing that I don't like is where my pitches are landing. I don't want to pinpoint pitches by any means, but I've noticed through just an inning and 2/3 that when I try and place a FB on the outside (or inside) of a batter it gets that fat part of the plate more often than not; Dunn just jacked a solo shot on me because of it.

Making everything for USER pitching at 50 and going from there.

But to add to what you were saying. Have you noticed that when you pasue the game, go into pitcher subs, and look at the top rh corner at the player info - there's a control rating.

Now look at your player card (RS), and there is not one. Since I have Joe Blanton on the mound right now I can't see what is actual control rating is, but I CAN see it for my other P's who are not in the game.

I've already found a problem. I just did a fantasy draft which finally didn't freeze so that got fixed. However I went to the trade screen and you cant switch to any of your minor league teams to trade players. The trade I did was Edmonds, Thames, and Okajima for Soriano and Weathers. Instead of Edmonds or Thames I wanted to see if they would take a young prospect from AAA. Well I couldn't find out because you can't switch to the minor leagues. Looks like there won't be any combining of MLB players with minor league players in a trade.

I believe to switch to the minor leagues you push in the LS. It said it in the help screen at least. If I'm doing something wrong please tell me.

HUGE ... WTF by the CPU...

Ok. B3rd, 1-1 gm. Jason Bergman pitching for Nats (CPU), and has thrown 36 pitches and struck out 3 thru 3. He just got pulled for PH Josh Willingham because the #8 batter for the Nats got on base w/ a single.

I've seen the CPU pull pitchers early pre-patch, but that was because the score had been much higher or I had a 2/3 run lead and the pitcher had thrown around 50 or so pitches.

This is just ridiculous.

Re: Major League Baseball 2K9 Official Patch 2 Available, Impressions Here (360 Only)

I am reposting this in the 360 thread since the majority of games with 2k are with the 360.
================================================== =

For those still having trouble with the OF glitch. To aleviate this let your AI do the work for you. Do not touch the controls. On high fly balls the AI will either completely settle under it and make the catch, or sometimes they run close to the landing spot and stop short of it, in this instance you have to finish the rest and move the OFer under the fly ballto finish the play. It takes practice but this has worked very well for me. I have not had balls go over my head or hit me in the head or anything silly like that.

On balls you have to come in to charge, again, let the AI go after it for you.

The problem is still on line drives where you have to go to your left or right, in these cases youj ust have to hope for the best and hope your OFer either makes the catch or if he doesnt let, hope the ball does not get behind him.

Letting the AI do the work for me has helped this problem a great deal, unfortunately there are still going to be instances where a ball that should be caught will drop in and it will potentially wreck your game. i guess that is something you have to decide if you want to put up with. Maybe with some more complaining 2K will release another patch for this

Post Patch im really starting to like this game. I found a good set of sliders to tone down the AI hitting. Im getting called 3 strike outs and what I like most is i am getting TONS of foul balls by both myself and the AI. I had a pretty cool pitching duel with Bengie Molina, with 2 strikes he fouled off 5 pitches.

mY OTHER minor gripe with the game is the pitchers hit the ball a little too much. But I guess i have tos tart paying more attention when they are up

This game is SO CLOSE to being awesome you can smell it. Hopefully next year.

Will you please post the sliders you are using?
