That helped a little bit but it's still worse.

Base running seems to have been made worse too,even more gafs after the patch,it's nearing intolerable. Same with the umps but at least there's more in my favor now.

On the bright side (literally and figurativly ) they seem to have fixed the day/night cycle though that might also be the shorter games caused by the AI hitting getting worse.

Manny still hasn't healed after 2 post patch games and is still showed up as a new injury after both games. I'd like to be able to turn injuries back on.

you have to block the plate with the RB. Go to practice mode and read through the tips.

I'm content at least with the changes, things aren't perfect but no game is. It plays a fairly decent game of hardball with the right sliders. Graphically its alright, and it has some great presentation going for it. Its fun to play, at the same time. thats good enough for me

I agree. It is better, but the AI is still too aggressive most of the time. There are times when it seems realistic, but then there are times when almost every batter comes up and hacks at the first pitch, even when you throw perfect pitches with the Gesture slider turned all the way down.....so the AI agression is better than before the patch, but still not what it should be, and still not as good as it was in previous 2K games. Hopefully they can make it even better in roster updates.

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.
I am not having problems striking out the cpu at all.
Last night pitching with John Maine of the Mets I k'd 10 Nats!
