You may be following the saga of Alex Rodriguez, who was suspended today by Major League Baseball for more than 200 games but kinda not really, because Rodriguez may continue to play as he appeals the penalty. He's expected to join the Yankees tonight in Chicago. Know where A-Rod isn't playing, though? MLB 13 The Show.
Paul Goldschmidt fishes for the 1-1 slider way outside of the strike zone. He kicks dirt over the batter's box chalk, walks in a counterclockwise semicircle, fidgets with the brim of his helmet, and digs back in. Jon Garland rolls his shoulders and sweeps his foot twice over the pitching rubber. Now I may press X.
Ten years ago I was demoted in my job at the now-dead Rocky Mountain News. The subject is not something I talk about much, but it happened, and I worked with plenty of people who knew the score. The situation wasn't handled well, by either me or my bosses. Ultimately, it ended my newspaper career.
After he carded a seven, then got the dreaded snowman on a par 5, then a six and a double-bogey on a par 3, I half expected to see Rory McIlroy slink off the green, feigning tooth pain. He'd come into this final round atop the leaderboard at 10-under par, and now saw all of that vaporized in the first four holes of a…
The oldest memory I have is of catching a baseball. Coming from a sports fan, this may sound like treacly, lump-in-your-throat stuff, but it's true. I was three years old. My father was mowing one side of our front lawn, I was standing in the other, and I underhanded a pop fly into the air. It hung up there forever…
For the second time in as many seasons the Atlanta Braves have tried to use the "Screaming Brave" patch on an official uniform piece and pulled it back under public outcry, leaving MLB The Show holding the bag.
Do sports video games deserve a spoiler alert? If I don't put one here, I'm sure someone will complain about it. Over the weekend I heard various reports of MLB 13 The Show being sold before it's supposed to hit shelves next week. Someone got their hands on a copy and have been feeding Operation Sports all kinds of…
When I finish with my professional obligations in writing about MLB The Show and sit down to play it for my own enjoyment, I'm nearly 100 percent a Road to the Show player. That's the game's career mode, where you bring a guy out of the minor leagues into the majors and, one hopes, stardom. But like the other PS3…
Andrew McCutchen, Pittsburgh's center fielder, is your cover star for MLB 13 The Show, following an extremely brief period in which fans voted on the honor. McCutchen prevailed by nearly 20,000 votes over New York's C.C. Sabathia, and by more than 30,000 votes over Miguel Cabrera of Detroit, the first batter to win…
Sony released this trailer today for MLB 13 The Show, and producer Ramone Russell vowed that "about 10 Easter Eggs are included in it."
Odds are strong that the cover of MLB 13 The Show will be graced by a National League hitter, as six of seven candidates in this fan-voted contest are batters, and five of them are from the senior circuit.
So, it's not exactly a tutorial. I got that impression about the new "Beginner Mode" of MLB 13 The Show in a talk with one of the game's producers last week. But having gone four innings with it myself already, I can see that label no longer applies.
He was the first teenager to make an All-Star Team in nearly 30 years and the first ever to do it as a position player. His team made the postseason, and he was the National League's rookie of the year.
The first week after Thanksgiving is typically when MLB The Show's publicity machine rolls out the first screenshots and begins teasing upcoming details for the game, and right on schedule we got them this past week.
The only baseball you're getting a console, anyway. These are the first screenshots released for MLB 13 The Show, which had competition in name only for about the past five years, as MLB 2K ran a distant second with an expensive license that was exclusive in name only.
