In what capacity? Pitching or fielding?

Re: MLB The Show 18 First Impressions

The article is right about the commentary being ''at times badly disjointed''. I know they mentioned that Vasgersian Plesac & DeRosa would record their lines together in the same studio, but IMO that wasnt even the real problem previously. I know they want that 3rd man booth, but the commentary would be fine with just 2 guys, & frankly, would also be better .

I completely agree about the 2 man booth. I have no idea why they want 3 so badly

I can't imagine Derosa recorded as many lines as Reynolds. He is much more quiet and I've heard a ton of repeats already. They would have been better off kust keeping all of Reynolds lines and just have plesac and Matty v record the new stuff

Re: MLB The Show 18 First Impressions

Agree you with Bob in terms of how great this year's title is. There are things that still bug me, such as the "ole" that you mentioned. I also think that the corner infielders miss too many plays, but overall the game feels extremely solid and fluid from the first pitch to the last.

The commentary truly is bad and I all ready think I want to turn it off and just use stadium crowd. So disappointing year after year.

Not only does Matty V still sound boring and stale and like a robot instead of a real human being but there are times where both the color commentary guys go silent for too long.

It's been like this for 10+ years so at this point I think we all need to just get used to it and understand that it is not going to get better any time soon.

MLB The Show 18 commentary can put you to sleep at times!

Having said that SDS did a fantastic job on the presentation visuals in 18
