New Diamond Dynasty Cards Revealed At PSX

New-DD-Legends

During the PlayStation Experience, Sony showed off an announcement trailer for MLB The Show 16. While the trailer was full of “Pre-Beta Footage”, a three second clip at the end of trailer featuring cards that will presumably be in Diamond Dynasty is what really caught my eye.

ThatSportsGamer’s Sports Game of the Year

screenshot.22

In 2015, the best got better. Last year on the Press Row Podcast I chose MLB 14: The Show as the Sports Game of the Year and, I believe, this year’s strides raised it to a new level. Functional online play and a revamped Diamond Dynasty are two of the leading factors in selecting MLB 15: The Show as my Sports Game of the Year.

Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings Review [Xbox One]

Super Mega Baseball

Everyone knows a good sports gamer loves a good sports simulation game, but every now and then, you need to unwind with an arcade game. RBI Baseball tried to fill that void last year, bringing with it, official licensed teams and players in what was supposed to be a sized-down, yet fun setting.

2015 MLB Hall of Fame Ballot

National Baseball Hall of Fame

In alphabetical order:

Jeff Bagwell – I think the Red Sox might think about how helpful Larry Anderson was for them when they traded Jeff Bagwell away for him. With the Astros, Bagwell was a constant power threat in the middle of the lineup. The biggest problem for Bagwell to overcome is his lack of a big stat. 2,314 hits, 488 doubles, 449 home runs, 1529 RBI and .297 batting average, none of these on their own will get him in, but the consistency that brought together all those numbers should get him close in 2015.

Craig Biggio – Along with Bagwell, Biggio combined to be a deadly combination in the Astros lineup. 3060 hits, 668 doubles, 291 homers, and a .281 average are pretty great stats. The best thing about Biggio is that he would play anywhere on the field. After coming up and playing four seasons at catcher,  and fifteen years as a second basemen, he went to play another five in the outfield, mainly in center. He is one of the greatest examples of what a baseball player should be.
