161w ago - SCEA PR Manager Eric Levine has shared the third installment today of MLB 10 The Show PS3 predictions, this time covering NL Central.
To quote: Here are our MLB 10 The Show predictions for the National League Central. This division has some good teams and some questions marks which will make for an interesting year in 2010.
The Cardinals have the best player in baseball, probably one of the best ever, in Albert Pujols, and with Matt Holliday protecting him in the lineup and Chris Carpenter on the mound, it's tough not to slot them in as the favorite for first place, and a contender to win it all in October.
161w ago - SCEA PR Manager Eric Levine is back with round two of their MLB 10 The Show PS3 predictions series this week, as follows:
Next up on our divisional predictions series is the American League Central. This division hasn't had a repeat champion since the Twins in 1994 and there looks to be a lot of parity again this year, so first place could be up for grabs.
With a new ballpark in Target Field and a reigning MVP (and MLB 10 The Show cover athlete) in Joe Mauer, the Twins look poised to break this trend and repeat as division champs.

To quote: This week begins our divisional prediction series utilizing MLB 10 The Show to simulate the 2010 season. First up is the American League West... with the Angels, Rangers, Mariners, and A's all vying for the top spot, the race for the AL West crown seems to be wide open.
Ichiro has Seattle ready to claim their first division title since 2001 and if Griffey can bring back some magic from his past Mariner days, they just might have a shot.
The Rangers are coming off their first winning season since 2004 and now adding Vlad Guerrero to an already stacked lineup (2nd most HRs in MLB in '09), they will be a tough hurdle to overcome. Then there's...
163w ago - SCEA PR Manager Eric Levine has posted up a MLB The Show Opening Day PS3 trailer video today shawcasing the season's first pitch, as follows:
Opening Day is finally here! The 2010 MLB season debuted last night with Yanks and Sox taking center stage at Fenway, with Boston ultimately edging out New York, 9-7.
For those of you who caught the game, the telecast featured multiple airings of our Joe Mauer/Kevin Butler commercial , as well as other in-game mentions -- just another way to showcase MLB 10: The Show during big moments in baseball.
I'm also happy to report that The Show is still enjoying some great feedback from the media. Just recently SportsIllustrated.com and the Associated Press posted reviews that are worth checking out, and ESPN.com included the game in their Opening Day Gear Guide.
