For the first time in a while though, and this is assuming the final build comes together like the demo seems to show it will, you can talk about both The Show and the 2K baseball game in the same sentence without sounding silly. I very much enjoyed the demo and look forward to the 8th
Couldn't agree more. There is a lot to be said for the fun factor.

I might be wrong here, but I've seen some weird subs in the demo as well and I can only attribute it being a 3 inning game and the A.I. takes this as the 7th, 8th and 9th innings of a game.

Rocket arms are definitely a thing of the past. Cody Ross just two-hopped a rainbow from the wall to 2nd

There does seem to be a fair amount of infield assist right after the ball is put in play, but nowhere near as bad as last year.

Is it possible to hit homeruns with contact swing?
with the sliders last year, you could set it up either way. For me personally, I prefer contact unless I get ahead in the count. On default settings, playing that way would probably result in too few HR's, but some slider tweaks and you can get it right (turn up power, turn down contact).

So really, there is no "right" way, it just comes down to personal preference, and then setting the game up accordingly

Yes, the AI is managing as if the entire game is ending after 3. It does the same thing in 2K10 if you set your franchise to 3 innings (I've done this before as a test).

Totally agree Jeffy, I wrote this too. Feels great that rocket arms are no more
