I purchased it today plan on playing around more later. I see you can buy older seasons also but I don't see the price of them?

You can purchase more historical seasons through in-app purchases. (Historical seasons are $0.99 each, 10 for $4.99, or all seasons dating back to 1901 for $19.99.) Real players show up according to history as you play forward, assuming you own those seasons.

Can I import my franchise from last year? I'm like 6 years in and don't want to start over.

Is this the best MLB game on the app store?

Anyone played this yet? Is it worth the $7 to have a fun mobile game, or is it better to just buy 2015 for my Mac and focus on that?

I think the mobile game is great and it's not as overwhelming because there aren't as many options, but if I was choosing between mobile or PC version, PC version for sure.

PC version is $40, mobile is only $5 though.

Thanks. I ended up buying the mobile version, purely because I'll have more time to play it than I would on a computer (plus, my time will be taken up by The Show soon enough!)

A dozen or so games into my season and I really like how it plays. Lots of fun, lots of detail and well worth the purchase.

A week later and I'm hardly enthusiastic about investing too much time in this game...

My ERA/WHIP after 20 games:

Ryu 5.10/1.53
Greinke 6.00/1.40
Beckett 11.00/2.33
Jansen 5.79/1.93
Perez 7.71/2.14
Rodriguez 9.95/1.58
Wright 7.94/2.12

Ranked 4th last in MLB for strike-outs
Ranked last in NL for ERA (2 more than any other team)
Ranked 3rd last in NL for walks

And pitching strategy is not exactly rocket science.

"Pitch" or "Pitch Around" - yet even throwing straight at home plate with one of baseball's best arms results in walk after walk.
