During each appearance, there's a "challenge" system.  Depending on the circumstances, you might be given a goal to complete, and successfully completing goals helps to boost your training points.  I like the idea, but the implementation is sometimes wonky.  For example, we're up by 3 in the bottom of the ninth, and I've already gotten 2 outs.  A goal will pop up telling me to strike out the third batter.  Why a strike out?  I could see needing a strike out with the bases loaded and one down, or something, but when closing the deal, I'm just looking for any out, not a strike out.
 
I guess my point is I don't like how sometimes the goals don't coincide with what you need to accomplish in the game.  That said, I think it's a fun idea.

Sure, Web...  I have to find my ethernet cord first, though!  Smile
 
I may not be much of a challenge.  I've been doing a whole lot more pitching than hitting.  Maybe this weekend?  What's your schedule like?
 
Also, is there anything special I need to know to set up an account for "The Show?"

I actually haven't gone online with 07 yet, but I can't imagine that you have to do anything special over 06.  I've actually been playing a lot more of 2k7 lately too, as I'm still embroiled in a constant tweakfest with that game, so it may take an inning or two to get re-familiarized with the controls for me as well.  I still don't have a ps2 headset, though, so we'll have to play in silence.
 
How about...Saturday night?  Some time between 10pm edt and 12pm edt?

I had to call it a night with the 'tweakfest' that 2K7 turned out to be.  I need simpler sliders, like "hit less home runs" and then the game would do what it needed to do behind the scenes to bring that to fruition.  There are just so many moving parts with the 2K7 hitting sliders... it really was work more than play, and had a poisonous way of demanding my attention as if THIS WOULD BE THE TIME everything finally fell into place (which it never would), and then there'd be a game that I always enjoy like Oblivion sitting on my shelf, unplayed, wondering why I spent all my time with that sexy floozy who was only going to string me along and hurt me.

Just curious, were you using the swing stick or classic batting? I found a way to trim down the home runs using classic batting and just making one of those house rules that I do not press up. I treat it as if I was zone batting using the left and right to push and pull the ball and down for the low pitches. Of course playing with a team like the Pirates helps.

Hey Web,

I'm signed up and connected for MLB 07 online...  My name is "KMosley."  I'll probably be in the Central01 room around 10.

Hey Web,
 
I waited and searched until 10:15.  Couldn't find you...  Signing off now.
 
Thanks,
 
Kevin
