So these would be absolutely amazing if they were a little bit bigger and to scale. They’re really hard to see the intricate details. I am however off to a 16-7 start in my Los Angeles Dodgers franchise and Yasiel Puig is starting to figure it out.
He has just one home run thus far (in San Diego of all places), but he’s seen his average climb from just under .200 at one point to around .260 at the present time. Adrian Gonzalez has seven home runs. Hanley Ramirez has four. They’re a lot of fun to play with. I also traded for Junior Lake and Luis Valbuena, they fit right in with what I’m doing. Screenshots of them coming next time.
The Angels shots are from my lesser-played Angels Franchise where I am struggling a little bit other than with Mike Trout of course. He’s like the only guy above .240 and he’s hitting about .320 for the year.
Today over on MLB.com, MLB ’13 the Show launched it’s cover vote with seven of the finest candidates imaginable taking center stage.
Andrew McCutchen has jumped out to an early surprising lead, but our favorite candidate is trying to pull out all the stops.
Voting has gone the way of the All-Star game, and if you have a twitter account it’s fairly simple. You just have to release a tweet into the cyberworld stating “#MLB13HARPER” to cast a vote for Harper.
It’s already the greatest video game on the planet, let alone baseball game ever made. Producers of The Show have again pulled out all the stops in not only aligning themselves with MLB.com but ensuring that whoever ends up on the cover will assuredly be one of the game’s most rising stars.
And although we wouldn’t mind seeing Cutch, Miggy, Posey, or even Braun on the cover; no one makes more sense from a marketability standpoint than that of Harper.
Even Hardball Talk had a post up about it today, props on the gif of the old school Atari. Baseball really is abuzz about The Show 13.
This is hot off the press–the MLB the Show ’12 cover boy will be Adrian Gonzalez. This would only be known by those who follow the Official MLB the Show Facebook Fan Page like I do. And lets be honest, I probably beat you to it for reasons I’m not entirely proud of.
Adrian replaces the cover boy for two years running Joe Mauer. It was probably time. I thought SCEA missed the boat not having Joey Votto on the cover after his 2010 MVP season, but I’m only one man.
I cannot wait until that March 6th release date when I can roll into work all red eyed because I’ve played 54 innings of Playstation 3 baseball. It’s almost like Opening Day before Opening Day, for us video game wizard folks.
We’ve never been shy about expressing our love for MLB The Show’s video games. Now there is an all new reason to love this game.
