Has anyone had problems in online leagues still? My league sliders don't work and if they do save, everyone gets network errors when they start games.

Is there any way to get around the situation where you enter a pitcher at the very beginning of the inning and then can't do a mound visit? This has hurt me several times with closers. I thought the patch was supposed to fix substitution issues?

Also, has anyone had problems with cards since the patch? I can no longer access them from the pause menu in-game.

Dammmm I still hate the graphic glitch when they go to dug out and the players look like they are on a exulator at the mall bugs the heck out of me and there are still some bad glitches while base running i think .

Oh, life can be so cruel.

My outfield play was fine before the patch, now it's a mess. I now hit "A" as soon as a flyball is hit, and let the computer field it for me. Five games played today, and about five or six misplays.

I'm also re-learning how to pitch. CPU hitters can really crush curveballs now.

not crushing curveballs in my game. i pitched with Kevin millwood and had a shutout into the eighth cpu did have 7 hits up to this point but could not get big hit. seemed like everytime I needed big out I threw curve. Millwood was like oswalt when his curves on. The cpu finally got a hit o the curve in the 8th when I as at 92 pitches and stamina was in red. To me what I have seen so far curve is still to good.

Well I have to say that the patch fixed somethings but made some other worse in my opinion. Basically all I can see the pitch having fixed is the aggressiveness issue. But I saw the outfielder bug twice in the same game. Frustrated I decided to return it for the Show on PS2. I'll have to settle for last-gen graphics for good gameplay. I wish 2K would put some more effort into the only baseball game on Xbox.

I have found that some of my pitchers have around 2 pitches in which they can control well since the patch.

For instance, Brandon McCarthy was pitching, I couldn't locate a fastball to save my life...a few were crushed when they were located incorrectly. The same with the slider....brutal...kept hanging it over the plate.

So I threw my change and CB for strikes, and threw the FB up up up and mostly away just to show the pitch....and it mostly worked...pitching is must better and much more strategic post patch IMO.
