Thanks web. I'm strongly considering picking this one up, especially once the season starts.

I take it we'd have to fight over the Yanks, huh?

I was really enjoying my second game of MLB 2006 until I finally had one the famous "freezes" the game is known for. It's the first time I've ever gotten one .

If Wachovia wasn't holding my money hostage and my wife's birthday wasn't next week, I'd be very tempted to buy MLB 06: The Show.

BTW, I downloaded the lastest updates for MLB 2006 and they are from the end of last season as Johnny Damon was not on the Yankees. Also, there were two other guys online playing against each other for a grant total of three people (including me) online tonight .

Web,

I hope you hold onto this game for a little while because I definitely plan on picking it up next month (or sooner if my tax check comes). We'll have to hook up for some online games.

Yep, I'm usually a 'keeper.'  I tend to go back and play old games quite a bit, so no worries there.  I'd really like to give it a shot online.

I played online last night with a buddy.  The game had some lag, to which you could adjust (Swing and release the pitch meter a bit earlier) and hardly any chop or stuttering through the nine innings.  It played well.

One thing that is a little strange, though I think this may have been in last year's game as well, is that when your opponent guesses your location there is no pitch meter...Bam, you go right to the pitch and the pitch will hit the guessed location.

I guess they had to do it that way, since poor performance on the meter could very well make the pitch go to a different location than was guessed, but it feels a bit odd in execution.

I had a blast, though.  Anyone who has it and wants to play online, let me know!

Web,

Can you disable the 'Guess Pitch' option online? I'm glad to hear that it plays well online because I've convinced myself to buy this game.
