The sliders in showdown are really just inexcusable. At the hands of the cpu, breakout Robb Nen just pitched 5.2 innings in relief despite allowing two game tying home runs, a double off the top of the wall, and three other knocks.
Numerous pitches squared up in the middle of the pci went for good/ok or good/good outs.
Meanwhile, every time I homer to tie it, the next inning the cpu hits a no doubt bomb on a green release pitch from my reliever.
This is just bad.
Has anyone actually completed every mission on the way to a final boss? I am convinced now that the mode is designed to intervene if you complete too many.
