I am guessing that since:

A) You didn't drop the ball

and

B) There is no human scorer to judge if a ball was grossly misplayed

It is probably hard for them to score it as an error.

Yeah I think so too but with the Announcers getting it right in their dialogue most of the time it seems like they would use the same logic for scoring. So the logic is in there somewhere it just isn't used the same in both places.

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

My feelings on the patch have been rather mixed.
I have noticed that they are watching more first pitches go by. That is a plus, but my strikeouts are pretty low. Prepatch, I was averaging around 6 strikeouts a game. I think have only had six strikeouts in five games.

Since the computer remains aggressive in stealing, I have been throwing to second a lot. A couple of times, I overthrew. I have not seen that before the patch. Which is cool.

A couple of pop flies have dropped right next to my player. Sometimes the fielders start moving towards the ball. Other times, they are just standing there. I don't know if that is a glitch or part of the fielder's range and response times.

Batting is about the same, but the amount of homeruns have gone down... which is good.

The game is definitely better, but not enough to keep me from saving up for a ps3. I never thought I would buy that system because I think it is overpriced. Now I need to buy it to play a decent game. I will continue to play the game until I get enough money. After that, I will trade this in for The Show. Don't worry about me. When that happens, I won't troll on the 2k9 boards.

You cant keep saying "Oh, but it should work this way, i shouldn't have to do it like that" over and over again, complaining about it. Either stop playing or make the simple switch of preloading a throw when you make those catches.
great point, I always pre load my throws and haven't seen any dropped balls at all. It is a easy fix to a perceived problem.

Despite the vibe we get here at OS, baseball gamers make up a pretty small piece of the video game industry. I doubt MS is too worried about it. If they are, they could always revive Inside Pitch.

Re: strikeouts. I just struck out 4 Astros in 6.2 innings with Pineiro (only 1 of those was the pitcher) and walked 2 while throwing 76 pitches, which was nice. I felt like I really 'earned' the Ks, too. It's so much more rewarding now post-patch. I struck out 6 with Carpenter in 8 IP in a game last night. You just gotta throw some purpose pitches out of the zone outside AND inside once in awhile.
