MLB 15 The Show News Post


The Houston Astros are using data directly derived from MLB 15 The Show as part of their scouting reports this year -- and they say the data is quite realistic.

Quote:
"Here's what Astros Coordinator of Advance Information Tom Koch-Weser had to say per a statement provided to Bleacher Report from Sony Entertainment, "the Sony images offer realistic representations of players. We're excited to incorporate these images in our scouting reports."

Also quoted in the article is Chris Gill, who works on MLB 15 The Show and has played in the MLB:

Quote:
[/i]""Just like everything else, we try and make the game as realistic as possible," he said. "It’s a true simulation so we need to make sure the game behaves as close to real life as we can make it. We use real-life stats to determine the hitters’ strengths and weaknesses for hot and cold zones, and batters fly ball/ground ball, pull/oppo tendencies to come up with our spray charts in game."[/i]

If Houston keeps their run up through the year, don't be surprised if we hear of more teams using Sony's data in future years.

that's pretty cool. Being a GM in real life is like my dream job almost. I guess The Show is the closest I'm gonna get to it. And watching Moneyball

Wait, what are they actually using?

Weser says "the Sony images offer realistic representations of players. We're excited to incorporate these images in our scouting reports."

That to me sounds like they take screenshots or something and put them in scouting reports. The writer uses the word data which implies statistical data (i.e. sim stats or player ratings). Although technically anything can be data including images. In my work we refer to aerial and satellite photography as data. Am I missing a quote from Weser or something where he refers to what data they use?

when the astros finish 10 games under .500 is it going to be partially the show's fault?

No, that's the old timing window without directional hitting.

Here's what I know about The Show....If you are in a 2-0 or 3-0 count the CPU will throw a change-up. No such thing as a fast ball count vs the CPU.

According to baseball reference there were two Chris Gill's that played proffesional baseball, neither of them ever made it to the MLB.

I'd actually suggest that Out Of The Park Baseball is a little closer but I guess that is a matter of preference.

Logged in just to upvote this comment. In my case, it's sliders and curveballs that come on your typical fastball counts.
