Inside the Numbers of Major League Baseball 2K8

T.J. Cutini has posted an Inside the Numbers look at Major League Baseball 2K8.
"With less than a month before the release of MLB2K8, 2K Sports sent over a 5MB spreadsheet detailing every single rating for every single player included in this yearís game.

At first glance, the numbers seem to go right along with their real-life counterparts, but dig deeper and youíll find a few discrepancies that the baseball fanatics will be scrambling to fix once the game is released. So letís go around the horn (apologies to Tony Reali) and take a look at the overall ratings of some of baseballís best (and worst)."
Platform: Xbox 360 / PS2 / PS3 / Wii / PSP

Re: Inside the Numbers of Major League Baseball 2K8

I agree with a lot of your intial observations. As a White Sox fan I almost choked when I saw they had Kendal rated higher than A.J. at catcher. I don't know how anyone can justify that mixup. As long as we can adjust the ratings it'll be fine.

Oh, and having Jeter as the second best shortstop....wayyyyy overrated.

I think they are just fine.

Actually, I think everyone's ratings should be lower.

Re: Inside the Numbers of Major League Baseball 2K8

Wow...someone apparently took a baseball bat to Justin Verlander...how is he not top 20, ahead of Liriano?

Anyone have info on the serious, career threatening injury Verlander must have suffered?

On the same grounds, my favorite player Michael Young should be rated lower as well. While a threat to hit .310/15/90 with 10 SBs in any given season, he lacks range defensively.
