Any updates to player ratings or major changes to the FAQ will be listed in the Updates section. Check it whenever a new version comes out. *********************************************************************** II. Legal Information This FAQ was made 100% by me, John "Rashidi" Markisch.

How YOU can help with this FAQ If you want to assist me with anything in this FAQ or have any comments on existing information, please do not hesitate to e-mail me. Since Major League Baseball is so vast, it is hard to keep track of so many things going on at once. One of the main things I will be focusing on is obviously the ratings of players. Hitters are easier to rate than pitchers, because there really aren't any websites that breakdown the effectiveness of their pitches. You basically have to see the pitcher in action. Thus, I am always taking suggestions and information based on the pitches that a pitcher throws. How good their control is, how high/low the velocity is, how much movement, etc. Not all of the pitchers in MVP have their correct pitch types. Last year Braden Looper had a curveball, and now he does not (he has a Fastball, Splitter, and Cutter, which I believe are the three main pitches of his repertoire). It is probably more common for younger pitchers to have faulty pitch sets because they are still learning and incorporating pitches into their game plan. The Mets tried to force Jae Weong Seo to start using a 2-Seam Fastball, but it didn't go over very well. I'm not sure if Seo dropped the pitch, but if he still uses it I'll add it. I'm looking for stuff like that when it comes to pitchers, and there's only so much ground I can cover at once. Another thing I am looking for information on is batting stances, jersey numbers, what kind of glove a player uses, etc. I personally am not at all interested in stuff like that, but many other people are. I don't really look for things like that, so any changes that I make in those areas would be of the obvious kind. So most of the changes in those departments will be from other people submitting them to me. I will be properly crediting people who do contribute to this guide, so don't worry, I'm not going to steal information you send me and claim it as my own. At present time I do not fully understand the nature of Batter Tendencies. If someone could investigate and explain them to me, that would be great. One of the difficulties with editing them is that there isn't really any good source of information on what players are good/bad against certain pitch types. The obvious cases (players that cant hit breaking pitches to save their life) are easy to identify. For the moment, it's best to assume (hope) that EA got the majority of these ratings right, or at least as close to accurate as one can hope. This won't stop me from editing them if I find good cause, but I don't anticipate a cause in the immediate future. *********************************************************************** IV.

Version 1.3 (6/22/05) I have to apologize; I haven't had nearly the time I anticipated having when I started this guide. I've also worked extensively on my NBA2K FAQ of late, making the final changes to most players. I've barely been able to watch baseball this season, I pretty much have only been updating like once every 2 weeks, when I actually get a chance to sit down and watch a baseball game. One of the things you might notice is that I'm in the process of reformatting my guide, to make it more visually appealing and have each player take up less space (so it doesn't take three years to scroll from one team to the next). Since most of you are looking at this guide for player ratings (especially since I have barely changed anything else due to lac
