  1. First of all he's not Canadian. He's from Cuba. Second, i know it's a small sample size but he was pretty impressive in his brief MLB experience in 2018.
    Last year he was able to play in 65 games and slashed a solid .281/.309/.446, adding 11 home runs, eight doubles, and 35 RBI in 249 at bats. He also broke the MLB record for consecutive multi-hit games, and took a serious run at the all-time record.
    His potential is off the charts, and with a rocket of an arm he could be a plus shortstop as long as he can harness his many tools.

    I didn't know about the multi hit games run. That is pretty impressive. All I know about him is from the scouting reports I have read. I just remember he didn't even start the year on MLB.com top 100 and all reports were indicating his brother was the better player.
    I'm sorry, does anyone really care about this game? They are a horrible 0-for-2 and I see nothing that indicates that they will even put wood on the ball for this this version of the game. If I feel the need to play R.B.I., I simply load up my emulator and play the nes version.
    I bought it last year because of "Franchise Mode". There were a lot of bugs but at first, they were really responsive about fixing them. It was fun it short bursts but wish I had waited til it dropped to 4.99. There were some annoyances with the camera view, roster bugs and especially long loading times. If they can cut loading times to the original RBI baseball and fix the camera view with an improved frame rate, then I might purchase again.
    From what I've seen from the 2 pictures they have put up they  really have put some time in the graphics department and the players accessories just look at the bat and the cleats and the fielding glove this years game might the one that Xbox owners might really like..

    Guy only played 65 games last year. I guess there just giving covers to anyone these days

    slim pickings is what it is. They should do like Show 17 with Griffey Junior, throwback cover. Like do a Canadian cover with Larry Walker or Dave Stieb.
