I've seen zero evidence of MLB caring about long term revenues over the decade I've been making baseball games. They view gaming as a short-term cash grab, nothing more. You're aware, I'm sure, that MLB tried to shut down fantasy baseball a couple years ago. You might not be aware that they tried the same thing with online gaming while I was still at EA. Or that they were on the phone with EA within 5 minutes of the Madden deal, asking "Where's ours?" Plus some things that I can't share on these forums.

Also, how did the steroids fallout hurt MLB? Certainly not in the pocketbook, as fans have clearly indicated that they don't care about scandals. Not enough to stop going to games or buy team merchandise, at any rate.

You are definitely right about the MLB's and other sports leagues viewpoints on games. They see it as a short term cash grab and not a way to make fans long-term. To me, I look at games as the best possible free advertising your league could get...but like I ended the article with, the leagues haven't yet caught onto that movement/viewpoint just yet

Re: Why The MLB Should Care That The Show Changed My Life

I've got a couple questions about the game:

1.) Would you only use power swing (square) when using power hitters like David Ortiz or Ryan Howard?

2.) What's the easiest way to hit home runs? Do you aim where you want to hit the ball and hit X?

Sorry, I just got the game so I'm kinda noobish.
