The only reason I don't use quick counts is it take the art of pitching out of the game. Setting up hitters by changing speeds and locations goes away with quick counts. I can see for the casual gamer or the person that want to have quicker results, but the nuances of baseball separate it from other sports.

I don't like the unrealistic aspect of subbing a picture after he has already thrown 2 pitches but other than that love it. Thank you SCEA!

If time is an issue I'd rather Sim the odd half inning. Having a mode where every Batter will have always seen 2 Pitches doesn't work for me. Now if we had an option where a generated count could be anything, even 0-0 that would be more viable for me.

Quick Counts is by far one of the greatest features ever invented for a sports game and I think it works great. So happy that I can complete a game now (with realistic stats) in roughly 20 minutes. I will never play a full length game again!

I love quick counts and it finally makes playing games in franchise mode viable and still get past one season or two. I think most of the problems people find with it would be alleviated if you could, say, hold a button to start the next at bat with a 0-0 count. Think of it like doing a hurry up in madden. Slap single with your leadoff hitter? Hold the touchpad button as the next batter comes to bat so you can hit and run on an empty count.

There are some negatives to quick counts...probably too many deeper counts (you're not getting a CG in under 120 pitches) and a limitation on what strategies you employ in regards to bunting H&R and stealing but its actually a decent forfeit to get a game over in 30-40 minutes.

What it can help too is people that have difficulty with reading pitches out of the pitcher's hand (guilty) being knowing situationally what a pitcher is going to throw and being able to react.

I like it and won't go back but I don't agree that stats are not affected. I'm 40 games into my Pirates franchise and I have scored and given up the least runs in either league. Maybe it's just the way I play, but when you step in there with an 0-2 count you can't waste a big swing . I still like it I may actually finish a season, which I have never done.

I absolutely love quick counts. The only issue I have with it is bunting. I think Sony should add a box that asks you if you want to bunt in certain situations. If you say yes to bunting. You can go up there with less than two strikes and try to move the runners over.
