Both. I like to play The Show and have the Cards game on my laptop. If I had to pick I would go with watching a game.

Definitely rather watch the Reds on TV, other teams it would be a toss up.

Re: Better than the real thing?

I'm kind of split. As I live in Ohio, I get stuck with the Indians who I have little desire to watch unless they play Toronto. Also, since I got The Show, I imagine I will be playing it much more than watching any local games. I went with the game this year instead of MLB.TV as well, so it all kind of depends. For now, I'd say play the game, though I have watched quite a bit of spring training on MLB Network, but just not feeling it as much this year. If I end up in Arlington, that might change a bit. I'd watch Texas 9 times out of 10 over Cleveland

Re: Better than the real thing?

Watching a ball game is a real treat. I've lived overseas my entire working life, so seeing games are few and far between. The Show is an excellent substitute, and hopefully I've have enough cash this summer (but probably next summer) to order the MLB TV package. I usually end up listening to the game while I'm playing. A little disconcerting though if I'm listening to the Mets playing someone else though!

Re: Better than the real thing?

I like real baseball until my O's begin to tank. Usually May/June.
Then I like The Show because it's like a do-over for the franchise

Re: Better than the real thing?

OP, are you asking if I'd rather WATCH a game of The Show vs WATCH a real game?

If that's the question, then obviously I'd rather watch a real game. However, if it comes down to watching a real game on TV or PLAYING a game of The Show, then I'd rather play The Show.

Of course, GOING to a game trumps them all.

Re: Better than the real thing?

Being a control freak... gotta say playing the show. Many times while watching the Nats play on tv, I wish that I had a controller in my hand!! Now if you had PLAYING baseball that would be different.

It's hard watching a full game anymore. The strike zone has become ridiculous in size. I would like to see the Show's version of the strike zone transferred to actual MLB games. Games can last 4 hours now.
