GameSpot has posted their hands-on preview of Major League Baseball 2K8.
"Pitching in MLB 2K8 will be a three-step process, and each of the 18 pitch types featured in the game will require you to trace a different analog-stick pattern to accurately pull off that pitch. To pitch the ball, you begin by pulling back in the direction required by the pitch you're going to throw, which will bring up a circle meter that surrounds the spot at which you aimed your toss. An expanding circle will move outward from the ball toward a white ring on the outside edge of the circle."
