Now I've only been playing for the last 3-4 years or so with this year and last being my deepest dive into the game. As a former collegiate and semi-pro player, I thought that MLB had the best representation of the game of baseball. Mix that with the DD mode, in which I love the ability to mix older and current players together, and the premise is truly something to look forward to. But whatever you guys (and gals) have done ( or not done) to MLB20, you must get it right. There are folks who've played this game many years more than me. It's too early for us to be experiencing gameplay issues that make a mockery out of the game of baseball. We have the right to have expectations that the game will play up to a certain level: Defensive players should be locking on to the ball much better than what they're doing; base running shouldn't be like they're on ice skates. Showdown and MTO shouldn't be scripted: When I'm winning in the 9th, and their lead-off batter hits a routine fly-ball that my outfielder locks on and then "locks off" allowing a double followed by a routine groundball to first where my first baseman does not run to the base but rather flips to the pitcher who isn't covering, you just know you're going to lose. Routine ground ball to the third baseman who tried to bare hand it and totally missed it, again allowing a double. It's hard to stomach this kind of gameplay. Yeah, of course we can go play other games, but this IS Baseball season. And just because there aren't real games on TV, doesn't mean we can have the closest thing to it in a video game.

I’ve been able to bunt with some amount of success. Of course the batter should have decent to good bunt ratings. But what I’ve found, just like bunting in real life, is when you square around to bunt, or drag bunt, you have to let go of the triangle button at the last moment. If you hold on to it at the time of contact, it will result in a pop up or hard bunt which usually ends up an out. In real life, you have to “give” with the ball as it makes contact with the bat, thereby “deadening” the ball. It did this all throughout Jackie Robinson’s missions.
Ok, 2 things... and maybe I’m missing something but here it goes. I enjoy playing strictly offline and really don’t care about anyone “smh”. I’m in it for MY enjoyment, not anyone else’s. I like blue, someone else likes green. So you’re going to “smh” at MY choice. That in itself is absurd. In any case, ever since I was a kid I was a collector: baseball, basketball, hockey and even racing car cards. That’s what I like about DD: collections and mixing older players with new. That’s why I asked the question. I was concerned that if I locked in a “no sell” card, and SDS came out with another collection, could I re-use that card for m that collection? Tbh, I kind of know the answer to that, but I wanted to be sure as it would be an easy 27k to drop them in the collection even if I didn’t play an online game.

I did the same when he first dropped and wished I’d been doing this all along
I said the same thing! I played about 3 -5 games a day. Now that I think about l, it took me a lil more than a week… maybe 10 days.
Such innocence. Stay that way, sweet child.
Loll…That’s exactly how I feel. No matter how many posts I’ve read about online play, going thru the experience and full range of emotions form “”YEAH boyyyy… Marte just hit bomb! Woo hoooo!” to
“Holy #%$&?….wait, what just happened? What’s going on?? WTFKkkkkkkk, what do I doooo, fml” is quite taxing.
But I’ll be playing again tonight!! Lol
Playing my first BR game, figured I’d try to win some of those pricier cards for the Mantle collection. Top 3rd I’m up 1-0, I have men on 1st & 3rd, 2 outs. I hit a line drive to his SS (for the 2nd out)… his man player catches the ball and runs straight past the dugout and into the wall near the on deck circle…. And it’s repeating this, he’s just running into this wall, I start pushing buttons and nothing happens. After 3-4 minutes, it switches to a view of the fans in the stands, and nothing is happening… finally after 4 long minutes it shows “connection lost”… so I got the win (yay), but what’s that all about? Is that an online issue where it freezes? I think this happened to me once before but I don’t remember the replies. I’m trying to learn how to play online but this is weird. I’m strictly offline so all this is still new to me. Thanks in advance.
What about Mays?
You don't think the Takahashi card is the final Mays?
I just took a quick glance at the Takahashi series cards and most have another card with better ratings. As good a player as Mays ways, I’d hate to think SDS would do his legacy the disservice of making his final card in ANY year of The Show, one that does not replicate his best season, era or career.
