The game is a HUGE step forward from 10, but Matty V is still in the booth. Steve Lyons is in the booth too, but he just reads the same lines soup used to.
The rankings for players are set up on a 3 year trend, with the last year weighing the most towards the overall. In Francours case, his decent year in 2011 and arm strength ratings are probably inflating his overall.
Honestly if you like baseball even a little, you will love this game.
You are not your job, you're not how much money you have in the bank. You are not the car you drive. You're not the contents of your wallet. You are not your ****ing khakis.
