Have a feeling that it will be Matt Kemp.

I'm shocked they're coming out with another game! Wow! I'll say it's Prince Fielder, wait he's in a contract year, ok, I'll go with Justin Verlander, he's in the commercials every year, so yeah, I'll go with Verlander.

Josh Hamilton

looks like their trying to get their info out a little earlier
# 6 Pizzle012 @ 10/31/11 06:25 PM
well if they keep the trend of pitchers going i'd say it has to be Verlander if not a pitcher than id say Miguel Cabrera, Pujols or Matt Kemp
# 7 Pizzle012 @ 10/31/11 06:26 PM
or maybe josh hamilton or ryan braun
# 8 bigfnjoe96 @ 10/31/11 06:26 PM
I'm calling Justin Verlander....
# 9 Detroitfan4life1993 @ 10/31/11 06:47 PM
I would like to see justin verlander on the cover or miguel cabrera.

Geez, the way david freese was bangin against us I would put him on the cover...sends the perfect message of what they need to do this year...against other games this game needs the comeback magic this guy has

Just a hunch. If they go with another pitcher though it will probably be Verlander.
Except for when they had Derick Jeter for all those years and Giambi...... Anyway I don't think it was terrible game, it was an actual step in the right direction.... lets hope they make improvements.

Most likely Pujols, maybe Carpenter. Wild card is it will be some living legend like Hank Aaron and they will go with the classic teams format in hopes of a boost. They better take there best shot because I think this is last year of the third party exclusive. Actually as I think about it I think it is going to be a living legend like Hank Aaron.

That was my first guess too, but it seems like they've alternated between pitcher/hitter every other year since VC took over in '09.....so I'm thinking it'll be a hitter this time....but I really don't know who...
# 14 SkillzKillz719 @ 11/01/11 02:45 AM
Probably Pujols!
# 15 easondew @ 11/01/11 02:23 PM
Joey Votto
# 16 AmongTheFearless @ 11/01/11 04:03 PM
Albert Pujols.

Dount it to the fullest...it was a mediocre year and if you wannt to measure playoff heroics it boils down to four and only four players...Freese, napoli, and nellie cruz. Freese sends a better message and is way more marketable...berkman would be nice as he had a great season and incredible world series resurrecting his carreer in the proccess which is a segway for what 2k needs to do...Napoli was amazing since the all satr break and did absolutley EVERYTHING in the world series as did cruz which he was on a 2K commercial BTW so he could very well get considerations. My vote is for Napoli or Freese. Pujols...although a legendary player had less than good season by his standards and if not for ONE playoff game where he flexed his chest he really didnt do a whole lot during the whole playoffs.

I would love to see Bautista on the cover. Part of me wants to believe that Verlander gets it though just because he won 432 games this season.

Well if he won that many games then yes he deserves it....
