I have no idea what to do.

I play MLB for franchise mode. I don't play it for online or exhibition. So the one thing I like doing in the game I can't even do cuz the 2k developers are so damn stupid that they can't even make a patch correctly. I had no freezing issues with the game before this patch.

Has anyone else had this problem?

Edit:
I just found out I can't play an exhibition game because it freezes in the same exact spot that it does in franchise. Wow this is flat out awesome. Now I can't even play the game! I absolutely cannot believe this.

I had the same problem 2 weeks ago...I couldn't even save it to the hard drive.

I took the disc to my local Game Crazy...they cleaned it...and thank god I could save it to my hard drive....no problems since as I only play it off the HD. Try saving it to the HD...and if it keeps freezing at the same spot...then go get it cleaned. Somehow my disc had a small scratch/blemish in it.

Funny you mention it Brendan....I am having the same experience fielding...more OF mistakes for me now then before patch...which wasn't many....although my offense just woke up on all-star default after a 3 game slump. It helps when I can get to the long/middle relievers.

Just got my first win of my franchise with a 8 inning 2 run, 4 k game out of pelfrey vs the brewers (default all star).

I was spinning a shutout, had a 2-0 lead, and should have yanked him as soon as I gave up a 2 out single, but noooooo. the next batter gets slams a 2 run homer.

I get the lead back and close it with K-Rod.

All of my previous gripes have been addressed from what I can see, but I am having a REALLY hard time stealing bases. I have 1 steal in 4 attempts with Reyes, and the caught stealings have been by a mile.

What am I doing wrong?

I am having the same problem stealing with Ellsbury. I am 1 out of 10 now with him. I have been in 3 run games in 11 of 14 games I have played post patch and it is not even worth it to try and steal now if it is just going to be an out.

It's much harder than it should be, even with speedsters such as Reyes. You pretty much have to get lucky and get a breaking ball because if it's a fastball, you'll almost always get gunned down. But even if you do run on a breaking ball, it's still way too hard to steal a base.

Wish there was a way to tweak it. Maybe they can fix it in a roster update.

Jeffy, it doesn't help when runners are clearly safe and called out.

Indeed. I don't even try to steal any more, which is sad

I've had zero fielding problems since the patch.

I know someone posted about the throws being so good to first now, almost too good.

WELL,,,,Although I've had zero outfield problems, I just saw the funniest thing I've seen in a baseball game yet. Maybe just a random a glitch but,,,,ground ball to Barmes at 2nd, gets down and backhands the hot shot ground ball, plenty of time to first, plants his feet,,,and fires the ball over Helton's head and into the stands,hahahaha, it wasn't even close it was way way over his head. Don;t know if I've ever seen that in a video game before, but I've seen it happen in baseball from time to time.
