I haven't gone into RTTS. It may count BP though. That's the only other mode I've done other than my season.

Re: Too many HR's?

I tried turning off Wind and it was definitely more promising. I put up a 7 spot in first inning (I'm convinced All-star is easier this year) and the homerun I hit was a wall scraper. Haven't seen on of those since getting this game.

I also then switched to HoF and had a hard time getting hits. Everything else default sliders.

I'm going to try sticking with this for a while longer. I wonder if the difficulties act up and randomly switch to Easy. The CPU throws a lot of meat, even though I get good walks and balls amount.

Re: Too many HR's?

I can't confirm from my small sample size from way back in MLB '09: The Show, but I believe that Pitcher Control affects a pitcher's ability to paint strikes on the black, and Pitcher Consistency affects a pitcher's ability to paint strikes off the black.

So if you bump up Pitcher Control to 10 and lower Pitcher Consistency to 0, your strikes will be borderline and the balls will be way off. In a way, no meatballs.

Strike Frequency affects exactly that... the frequency at which the pitcher will throw strikes. That being said, I already have that at 1. 1 or 2 is the right number for this game, IMO. Always has been.

Doesn't strike frequency only affect when its an early count?

People said that back in '09. Didn't know if it has changed since then, so I made no assumption one way or the other.

FWIW, the description text for the slider hasn't changed since then.
