Adam Dunn striking out, nothing new to see here

Thanks Steve, looking great, theres a smoothness to the pitching motions this year that really add something, and the TBP is like the icing on the cake as far as thats concerned.

Oh yeah, those "little things": At 11:26 John Danks is grimacing after throwing a ball. Same happens again a couple of seconds later after throwing another one. How awesome is that?

All the videos are featuring a TON of foul balls....

Looks great! BUT....

1.) Something tells me that the banner at Target Field shouldn't be moving as I'm sure realistically it would distract the hitters...

2.) Is it just me or does there seem to be a lot of cut scenes that show the pitcher after almost every pitch?

Whatever though, looks great as hell and can't wait to play it..

Just like an earlier video of the Twins vs. Blue Jays...they have Pavano serving up taters. It's painfully realistic

Yeah, the banner has been this way since they added Target Field to The Show. I wish they would change it, but after a game or two I quit noticing it for some reason...

Alexei Ramirez wipes out part of the front of the batter's box, and for the rest of the video, that part remains wiped out. Now that's detail. Has that been in past games?

That banner in real life has game stats on it during the game.

And I heard in the future so will MLB The Show

Just like they did last year by adding real life jumbotrons someday they will be adding real life LED Ribben boards to all the statiums aswell.

Not after almost every pitch, but like you see it on tv. I'd say that they show the pitcher more often than the batter on tv (especially after balls), so I think that's pretty realistic.

Carlness looks awesome in this game. His motion is done perfectly and he has that cool, calm, and lackadaisical look to him when he's throwing. Target Field also looks extremely well done. It's awesome how a couple of us really pinpointed areas of the stadium that needed fixing, and of course they fixed them. It's just really cool to see how the developers listen and care. I can't wait to play a night game and finally see that Minny and Paul sign glow up during the whole game. I've been waiting 2 years for that. I tell ya what though it's going to be a challenge playing with the Twins in franchise. I kind of like that.

Yeah, that sort of team has it's ups and downs. You struggle quite a bit at first, but you also leave your fingerprints and make it "your" team much faster.

Yeah, it will be tough. I'm contemplating trying another team since the Twins are going to be rated so low. Since the game is so hard for me, I don't think I will have a lot of fun using a really bad team....

But I will probably cave, suck it up and use them anyway...

Haha I don't think you understand what we're saying... I wasn't talking about stats man... I was saying how the ribbon is moving in the game while the batters are up, and how in real life it could be a distraction and how it should should just be showing stats or just not moving at all while the hitters are up. Really doesn't matter though, as I don't hit or pitch from that view lol

Yes I know exactly what you were saying.

And if and when they add the real life LED Ribben Boards it will fix your issue.

See for me I could never use a different team. I wouldn't be loyal to my beloved Twins and my favorite franchise in all of sports. The only time I ever start another franchise is if it's the Cubs or a fantasy draft. Just like you though I struggle at times. I really should say that I'm a bad hitter, but I consider myself to be a really good pitcher on difficult settings. Hitting is a bit different though. I have a tough time being patient.

I love how on the Konerko HR how the camera switches between him rounding the bases, both dugouts and Pavano. When it switched to Povano I was like, Oh yeah, that looked cool.

The camera cuts in general are very well done, it really adds to the TBP.

Assuming it's on default settings. Proper sliders will tone them down.

Rogers Centre had banners moving on the outfield walls when they were first added on to The Show, too.

In real life, it's the out-of-town scoreboard. In The Show since... either 10 or 11... they've converted it to show pitcher and batter stats.
