I play it, and I shook hands with Eddie Van Halen once, so does that count?

Unlike a game like MLB: The Show, there's very little of that "hey, I get to be THIS guy" aspect of things that a player might appreciate; it is, in the end, a management sim, after all. To a player, I imagine, guys don't simply go 0 for 3 in a game; they have a 8 pitch at-bat that ends in a liner right at the shortstop, have a second at-bat against the same pitcher where the guy gets a couple quick strikes on him and then he pops the ball up while protecting the plate, and in the third at-bat he strikes out on four pitches because the new pitcher has a tricky delivery and a devastating change of pace. Put another way, baseball players as a group may be too close to the game to appreciate the more distant view that a game like OOTP brings.

As for GMs, there *are* people who play the game who are currently or formerly in baseball front offices. The way it reduces people to numbers is going to be something that appeals more to stathead types than scouting oriented guys, but it's there. I have to think it's tough for a lot of those guys to separate the day-to-day aspect with the long term, although this is exactly the sort of toy that could help with that sort of thing.
I was thinking a bit different, like xbox or ps games doesn't matter how good or bad the player is your taking control of it's all down to hitting that button at the right time. I was more thinking of an MLB player looking at his ratings within OOTP and tweaking them to how he thought they should be and seeing how he would do, bit off topic but as anybody ever spoken to or contacted a MLB player, manager or such and asked them about ratings within OOTP ?

If "Charlie Hough" actually is Charlie Hough, that'd be awesome. I saw him pitch opening day at the Marlins first game in 1993. I was 11 years old, and it was one of the most enduring memories of my childhood.

Considering he's wearing a pink shirt, with pink sunglasses, with a pink Braves hat....yes (on a side note, can a 12 year old really qualify as a 'Hot Babe'?)

I think Poweshow is not Justin Bieber but Chris Hanson (or is it Hansen) looking for people who answer yes to the "hot babe question".

Nice try Chris.

If this doesn't deserve an infraction, I don't know what does.
