lol @ Jerry selling that team.  Even with his death we will still have him to deal with via his equally inept kid

I agree norm and to the system comment I think it has a lot to do with your staff that's helping this college player transition into the NFL.  Poor coaching staff…well, whaddya expect?
If you go through all the successful QB's, obviously you'll find a ton that are not first round QB's which to me, disproves the argument right out of the box.

I hope this never makes it to the NFL because it will just continue to chew up the game.
What I want instead is for the refs to be consistent.  We all know and accept, or should accept the fact that they will err altogether or make tick tack calls which is fine as long as they call them all that way.  And I don't mean just one game, I mean all the refs in all games.  If they want to waiver and tighten or loosen the calls week to week, fine.
But don't let a hand brushing a helmet on Ponder go without a penalty then eject a guy for the same thing when it happens to be Brady or Manning.
Im being dramatic but you get the point...

so norm, to pick up where we left off….
After you pointed it out, I tried the dynamic setting and it worked pretty well, for a while, then, disaster struck as I entered the legend level.
At one point I struck out 10 out of 16 AB's.
I was injured for two months entering the IR with a 350 BA (it was still relatively early in the season) and by seasons end it was 285. 
Keep in mind, I played out of the box which is Veteran and was just destroyed at this level, which I guess is the point.
What my problem is, even on veteran level, is the stride. it just seems odd when you pull the stick back t begin your stride, then having to hold it for a split second or two before swinging. One fluid motion feels much more intuitive to me and you can get away with that on Veteran level, but at Legend level? Nope.  The stride matters…a lot. As it should I guess.
Pitch type is almost impossible to pick up and even determining if the pitch is in the zone or not is abundantly more difficult.
The good thing is, it is much more representative of real baseball.  You have half a second to determine if you are going to swing or not and timing is everything.
For the first time ever, I'm playing an entire Spring Training to try to get a handle on this Legend level but I don't see it happening.
This will be my third full season in the bigs and hopefully I can adapt.
FYI, I think I said Id post my slider tweaks so here ya go.  It's minimal.
CPU pitcher consistency (it might be pitcher control - its the one that says might allow more wild pitches) set to zero
CPU pitcher strike frequency - set to zero
And thats all I do and basically it's to help draw walks because in my experience, even working the count, without tweaking these settings, you'll almost never daw a walk, even if your a two strike hitter adept at 7 or 8 pitch at bats.

In the meantime, I need to get back to my pitcher too….
