I like the graphics but human controlled pitchers lose control of their pitches way too much and CPU controlled outfielders don't take a good route into getting to Ball too often or they don't run fast enough to get to a pop-up in the outfield that they could get to and because of that it results in too many hits for the CPU plus wrong calls are being made like when I got a bit that landed in the outfield no one was even close to the Ball it was called an error but when it was hit by the CPU to my shortstop and he muffed the catch and threw the ball over the first baseman's head it was called a hit and not an error like it should have been and other people I know have had the same issue as me.

Please update Citizens Bank Park!!!

I already noticed in this trailer that the center field backdrop is still not updated.

You need to fill in more of the ivy on that wall as it has grown over the last few seasons.

SDS

I’ve watched the trailer a few times can someone please tell me where they see Ortiz or Rivera? Hype they are gonna be in the game just didn’t notice them

SDS

I have everyone of the mlb the show games and I love them. I mostly play road to the show and I think that needs upgraded and what I mean is that I think you should be able to interact more with your agent during a season not just a couple of times during the season so that if you don't like that your not getting enough playing time then you can interact with him or your manager and ask for more and also ask to be traded before the trade deadline plus give more input on where you get traded cause I'm always getting traded to a team who already has a really high rated player for my position so I get less playing time but when I look at the rosters of other teams there are other teams that have player's that are starters rated way lower to my player and I can't even get traded there so we should be given the choice of either pick a team we want to go to or given 3 choices to choose from and those choices should not have a relatively high rated player at your position plus you should be given the opportunity to be a starter depending on your stats and not your overall rating plus you should have single a teams in the game to start your road to the show mode.

Is the XP Reward Path returning?

If it is they better not put the best pitcher in the game in there again

Kershaw?

Calling it now. Rivera will be the reward for collecting all the LS players.

So, MTO will now be linked to team affinities?? Did I see and interpret that correctly?

If so, I may actually play that mode this year.

MTO already is linked to team affinity

I know, but it seems like that link kicks in before you actually finish the season... or I could be wrong.

SDS

MTO was a way to earn Team Affinity stars. If I'm reading the trailer correctly, MTO (or whatever was in the trailer) is no longer "World Series win or Bust", but is now geared towards W/L record improvement.

16: Jackie
17: Ted
18: Vlad
19: Mays
20: ...

Not so sure it'd be Rivera. They've never had a pitcher as the 'Collect All' reward, much less a reliever.

Ortiz would be the more likely 'Collect All' of the Legends displayed today. Though were money on the line, I'd go someone more well-rounded like Mantle, Clemente, or Aaron.

Yes, it does look that way. It looks like you start earning that team affinity during the process, rather than at the end, which I poorly articulated in my last post. 😊

If I'm not mistaken, Ortiz was already in the game. Rivera a a new player, a legend, and probably the most sought after player not name Bonds or Jeter.

They're not just going to make him easy to obtain

Ortiz is not in the current game.
The most sought after player not named Bond or Jeter? Look, I'm not saying Mo is a nobody here, he's great. But that's a bit overdramatic.

The trailer blew me away, great job SDS! I am hyped beyond all belief for MLB 20, bring it on!!!!!!!!!! (and bring me Scott Rolen)

SDS

IMO, Ortiz and Rivera are not near the level of collection rewards as Vlad and Mays. Ortiz can't field and Rivera only throws 2 pitches (fastball and cutter). Yea they are fan favorites but they aren't as good as if they make the LS collection reward Honus next year.
