    So...

    How is MLB The Show 19?

    I cannot afford the newest version

    it's alright. if you're only interested in RTTS (which is all I am in interested), you'll barely notice the difference

    20's updates to RTTS are mostly meta.... the biggest one is the personality traits seem to actually do stuff now instead of just be another menu to work through

    i can't speak to the other game modes

    I have never played a game in this series, I have no idea what rrts is

    The last baseball game I played was something on a friend's super Nintendo about 25 years ago

    I remember there was a change up that changed the ball into a feather

    Create your own player, start out in AA and work your way up. 19 is totally fine, I honestly can't tell the difference between 19 and 20.

    RTTS is sort of like the main game mode... at least for people of a certain age. It's equivalent to Franchise mode in Madden

    they do other stuff with like deckbuilding teams now and stuff, but none of that holds much meaning for me

    a LOT of the updates from year to year now are focused on non-RTTS things

    I have not played Madden either

    MLB the Show looks interesting, but maybe I'll wait a couple weeks for this



    That looks fun and I don't really have any attachments to any MLB teams any more

    maybe everyone knows this and I was just too close to the situation, but the rays rebroadcast the Game 162 comeback vs the yankees and it strikes me as utterly and painfully obvious that the Yankees intentionally threw that game to stick it to the Red Sox

    like

    literally just throwing center cut changeups one after another. i dont even know if they threw a non-strike after the 7th inning

    It's a good player Sim career mode it just puts you in your at bats and defensive stoppages or you can watch the whole game, or do a franchise mode and play as the whole team.

    Usually goes free on psplus during the world series or maybe on sale if opening day ever happens

    I have 19 from the ws but only played 17 I think was was great but it was my first one and jasc said I think 19 was the best jump in quality so I'd recommend it

    I dunno about arcadey games tho I've only played MFL instead of Madden cause MFL rules and literal murder is part of the game go go team all orc line backers

    Too soon

    Edit: this World Series matchup should have been a sign that we flipped into the bad timeline

    The fact that they chose a random game where Mike Trout went 5-5 over 2002 WS Game 6 or even the Skaggs Tribute No-Hitter from last year says a lot.

    The Skaggs Tribute game is amazing but might really be too soon, not meme too soon

    Good.

    Super sucks for Dodgers fans especially as their World Series win was clearly stolen, but it’s the right thing to do.

    I seriously doubt there will be a 2020 season for any league.

  • JasconiusJasconius sword criminal mad onlineRegistered User regular
    yes.. i would also be willing to bet that the 2020 season never takes place

    if for no other reason than that by the time any of these requirements become true, there will be so little calendar time left that it is meaningless to even try

    only thing that can change that is if they decide to do empty stadium games...

    I don't see the season taking place, unless it's very, very short

    I could see them running an exhibition league for whatever is left of the season. Maybe with some for-funsies playoffs.

    MLB is working on maybe opening the season in May, with everyone playing in Arizona with, presumably, some sort of testing method to keep it all clean. There are...a lot of reasons to think this might not work, plus this quote from a Mets player:

    Is tv money really that important?

    I guess answered my own question, but still...

    I get having everyone in the same place to maintain quarantine but

    There’s ~750 active slots of people to keep from their friends and family
    Add another ~450 for coaches and staff
    Plus rotate in another ~300 for injury call ups*

    1. Does Arizona have enough air conditioned domes to do this?
    2. You’re looking at ~1,200 people that need to be completely isolated (as a group) for months
    3. You need some way to keep your possible call ups “clean” to add them to that other group as needed...

    I do give them kudos for trying, but I think this one needs some more workshopping...

    *could be way low...isn’t that how many just the Yankees needed last season?

    Don't forget hotel staffs. And Umps. And all those people need to eat.

    And no, they're going to rotate through the Diamondbacks and play other games at spring training fields. Possibly 7 inning doubleheaders.

    They’re going to play...outside...in the Phoenix area...in the summer months?

    Bold strategy, Cotton.

    I could see it working if they greatly expanded the rosters to give players rest, but playing day after day in that heat will take its toll on any player. But then that is more people to isolate from everyone else.

    Maybe if every game was played at 4am they have a shot at playing at reasonable temps.
