My 11 year old son and I took our time built all-time teams (only players with cards from the specific team) and grinned each of the team conquest maps and we are finally done. The offline grind may not be for everyone but my son and I enjoyed it and I was able to teach him more about the history of the game. A 100% win for me!

I bought Madden this year for the first time in 5 years. I'm enjoying it. Is it perfect, nope, but its enjoyable. I also play The Show. Its possible to do both and enjoy both. I'll probably also buy NBA 2K in a few weeks (waiting to hear/see about gameplay improvements). Its 100% possible to play multiple games and enjoy them all without being contentious.
I have very limited use of my left hand due to medical issues. I used to use PCI but it became almost impossible for me, I still love the game and want to play, so I primarily use directional. It's definitely tougher. I wouldn't say the game caters to directional hitters at all. When I match up against a good pitcher using PinPoint its almost impossible, but its baseball, so I slog through. I love this game.

I'm not that good, my son and I haven't played many games online. Its a completely different experience. We're 0-6 in the event but 9-2 in ranked. We desperately want Belli, but this is definitely a struggle for us.
If you ask me, you’re winning. You’re playing with your son and that’s the biggest victory.
You are so right. He was relatively indifferent to baseball. We started playing the game in August to stave off the boredom of the pandemic. We are now obsessed with the game and it has unlocked a passion for baseball within him. We are New Yorkers, but my wife is from Illinois and a huge Cubs fan, so her family got a kick out of my son talking about all the classic Cubs he's been playing and studying up. It really has been the highlight of 2020 for me.
With MLB now recognizing the stats and pioneers of the Negro Leagues wouldn't it be awesome if they put out a series recognizing some of these trailblazers... I've put together a series I think would be great:
I stopped playing Madden 3 years ago. Complete lack of Franchise updates and MUT always felt clunky and stale... Diamond Dynasty is far more rewarding to the players of all calibers. More than 2K as well... in terms of a rewarding card collecting mode it is the most rewarding game on the market.
I'm a child of the 80's. Brett was my favorite non-Yankee. I loved the way he played the game.
I love this thread. I'll be 45 in 6 weeks. I've been working from home since March of 2020 and won't be returning to the office until January 22. Been a gamer my whole life. My older brothers had colecovision, than Atari. My mom got me a Nintendo and then a Super Nintendo. Sega Genesis followed in the early 90's until I went Playstation in the the mid-to-late 90s and haven't looked back. My oldest son is 12 and loves playing the Show with me. We work up and play every morning before he has to get ready for school.

Thats great to hear! I was in the exact scenario a few years ago and the form was invaluable to me. You learn to take the good with the bad, but just about any question you can think of, you can find a reasonable answer here.
I know this is a bit off topic but I’ll tie it back in to the game by the end.
I just had to say goodbye to my best buddy — a little pug named Nestor. I don’t know for sure how old he was, but I adopted him from DFW Pug Rescue back in June 2013. The rescue organization said they had his vet records showing he was 9 years old at that time. Who knows if that’s accurate, but I guess he was anywhere from about 16 to as old as 18.
Nestor has been my copilot through a lot over the last decade. He was the definition of a “velcro pug,” meaning he was never more than a few feet away from me when I was home. I decided to make this post because I needed a distraction and thought about firing up the PS4. But I don’t know if I can. Nestor has been there with me for probably 99% of my MLB:TS gaming over the years. He was there to listen to me complain about the line outs in 19, the defense in 20, the pitching in 21, and the game in 22. Playing this game and hanging out with my dude have gone hand-in-hand for years. The Show without my buddy is going to be a very lonely game.
I would like to encourage everyone to give a little extra hug to the unsung heroes who hang with us through our gaming. Whether it’s a dog or a cat or a lizard that poops all over you all the time, our animal allies are always there to support us. If you have a few bucks burning a hole in your pocket, please consider donating to a local shelter or rescue organization.
This is a great post. I'm a big supporter of shelters and rescue as well. Our current dog is a rescue we've had for almost 6 years now. I always encourage my family to donate to the local dog shelter in my name in lieu of gifts. Sorry for your loss.
I started playing DD in 20 during the pandemic. I've pulled Trout twice...both times in Jan of 22 when 21 was just about dead and his price was minuscule
it must be the humidors at all the ballparks now
Jose Ramirez is my guy right now. Crazy bat, could get better with a roster update and his defence is way to good for his stats. Donaldson isn’t a bad choice either but JRam plus a few thousand more in stubs gets you Thome as well.
Carpenter is always great too. A lot of options at third. Short is where I’m struggling
i wish there were more players at short, i can’t hit with seager online, franco looks underwhelming, tatis is pretty expensive. the gold michael young card did good, he’s just a bit too slow for my liking and has very little pop. i hope we get a new shortstop in this program that is pretty good
I've really enjoyed Volpe at SS. Solid at all aspects of the game.
