MLB Top Plays of the Day (09/22/15)
Here are your Top 5 Plays of the Day! 5. Andres Blanco (Philadelphia Phillies) The ball was grounded towards second, but Andres Blanco dives and smothers it. He throws to first on his knees and gets the batter out to end the inning. The way he spun on the ground was so smooth and elegant, he made it look easy. The Phillies also beat the Marlins 6-2. 4. Billy Burns (Oakland A’s) Shin Soo Choo lines the ball hard to center field. But Burns already took off as soon as the ball made contact and he is there to make the diving catch. Choo is robbed a hit as Burns makes a break and gets there before the ball hits the ground. Despite Burns's amazing play, the A's fall to the Rangers 8-6. 3. Nick Ahmed (Arizona Diamondbacks) Where are all these amazing shortstops coming from? Nick Ahmed dives for the ball and manages to stop it before it gets to the outfield. He doesn't even get up fully and manages to throw perfectly to the second baseman sideways! This is truly an amazing play and with the combination of a great defense and a hot offense, the Diamondbacks crush the Dodgers 8-0. 2. Francisco Lindor (Cleveland Indians) Francisco Lindor makes the list once again. He seems to pull something crazy every time he plays. This time, even the commentators thought for sure it was going to be a hit. But no, Lindor makes the diving backhand catch, gets up, and throws a laser beam to first to get the batter out. Cleveland however falls to Minnesota 3-1. 1. Jose Bautista (Toronto Blue Jays) Today's number one play goes to Jose Bautista. It was a fly ball to right and Chris Young was ready to tag home. But you have to understand good old Joey Bats is not simply a monster on offense. He may have a sore shoulder but this guy still has one of the best arms in the league. He makes the throw in time to get Young out. And do you know what's even more impressive? That was his second assist of the night. I know @jeff4122 is going to like this very much. Now that was your Top 5 Plays of the Day from last night's games!

I'm Ashamed of My Hometown
San Diego, get your shit together. Each year at the Padres stadium, Petco Park, the LGBT society in SD holds an event called "Out at the Park" that is meant to bring the community together for an evening of baseball. This year, Petco Park really, really screwed up. The San Diego Men's Gay Chorus was meant to sing the national anthem before the game to represent the LGBT community for this event. Their voices were never heard. The stadium let them take the field, and then as they were about to sing, a recorded female voice instead sang the anthem (which, if you've been to a Padres game, isn't something that happens - we always have live singing) The men had to walk off the field hearing people shouting profane, homophobic things at them. The Padres said it was a mistake, a technical error, a third party contractor, and that they were sorry. But that doesn't explain the other examples of mistreatment. Days prior to the game, the Padres organization told the performers that the chorus would have to pay for their tickets in order to sing. This is not something that happens, ever. If you perform the national anthem, you get to enter the park for free, DUH. Why did the Padres suddenly want this now? That would have cost the small organization thousands of dollars, and after dispute they were finally allowed in as performers. You can listen to their great voices here when they performed in 2015. It's a pity their voices weren't heard this year. Get it together Padres, you're a disappointment in baseball but don't be a disappointment to your entire community.
이게 차세대 신작이라고...? 'MLB 더쇼 21'에 쏟아진 불만
"차세대 콘솔에 맞는 경험인지 의문" "이게 신작이라니..."  소니(SIE) 산하 샌디에이고 스튜디오가 개발한 콘솔 야구 게임, <MLB 더쇼 21>이 혹평에 시달리고 있다. 오늘(21일) 기준 <MLB 더쇼 21>은 총 11개 매체로부터 평균 76점의 메타크리틱 스코어를 기록하고 있다.  메타크리틱에 따르면 특정 게임의 평균 점수가 75점에서 89점에 해당할 경우, '전반적으로 호평받은' 타이틀로 분류한다. 따라서 <MLB 더쇼 21> 역시 숫자만 놓고 보면 나쁘지 않아 보인다. 다만, <MLB 더쇼 21>이 사실상 최후의 콘솔 MLB 게임이며 차세대 콘솔로 출시된 첫 번째 <MLB 더쇼> 였다는 걸 감안하면 '76점'이라는 점수는 분명 혹평에 가깝다. 숫자만 놓고 보면 나쁘지 않아 보인다. 다만... (출처: 메타크리틱) 그렇다면 해외 매체들은 새로운 <MLB 더쇼>에 대해 어떤 코멘트를 남겼을까. 먼저 90점으로 최고점을 부여한 '하드코어 게이머'는 "샌디에이고 스튜디오가 핵심을 잘 살렸다. 새롭게 추가된 경기장 건설도 매우 흥미롭다"라며 긍정적인 평가를 내렸다.  반면, 80점대부터는 조금씩 톤이 달라진다. 플레이스테이션 유니버스는 "차세대에 걸맞은 점프는 아니지만, 플레이는 여전히 건재하고 재미있다. 다만, 다음에는 조금 더 확실한 뭔가가 필요해 보인다"라며 아쉬움 담긴 코멘트를 남겼다. 70점으로 최하점을 매긴 포브스 역시 "게임 자체는 재미있고 개선된 부분도 있다. 다만, 차세대 콘솔에 맞는 경험인지는 의문"이라고 강하게 비판했다. 유저 평가 역시 부정적인 쪽에 가깝다. 앞서 말했듯 <MLB 더쇼 21>은 플레이스테이션 5와 Xbox 시리즈 X 등 차세대 기기로 출시된 타이틀이지만, 그래픽에서는 큰 변화가 없었다. 게다가 시리즈 내내 지적받아온 '힘없는 투구 모션' 역시 거의 그대로 출시됐다. 아날로그 스틱을 활용하는 '핀포인트 피칭'이 추가되긴 했지만, 이 역시 큰 호응을 얻지 못하고 있다.  부정적인 평가를 내린 매체들은 '뭔가 더 필요하다'라고 지적했다 (출처: 메타크리틱) <MLB 더쇼 21>은 여러모로 중요한 의미를 가진 타이틀이었다. 변화를 갈망하는 유저들의 목소리는 점점 높아지고 있으며, 그간 <MLB 더쇼> 시리즈를 지켜줬던 '플레이스테이션 독점'이라는 간판도 사라졌다. 변화 없는 게임을 제값 주고 구매하기 아깝다는 비판도 늘어나는 추세다. 따라서 샌디에이고 스튜디오는 이번 타이틀을 통해 확신을 심어줬어야 했다.  외적인 변화만큼, 게임 내부에도 변화가 있길 바라본다 (출처: 마이크로소프트)
