Gamer 2.0 has posted their MLB '08: The Show impressions.
"Fielding has seen a nice big upgrade in its fundamentals in MLB 08. The game now has branching animations for fielders so you’re not stuck in an animation that leads you to a missed ground ball that could easily have lead to a double play. Outfielders have gotten a bit of retooling so that they can better determine how to position themselves for sacrifice fly balls or simple pop-ups at the beginning of an inning. To add to the enhanced control, you will notice that the circle around your fielder fills up the longer you hold the throw button, adding more or less force to that throw when you need it."
