Let's not beat around any bushes here: MLB 2K9 has taken a backseat in terms of quality to Sony's MLB The Show series, but the fact of the matter is that MLB 2K is still a fine baseball series and it is still the only one to be found on more than one console. 2K9 has released 7 new screenshots of game featuring stars such as Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia (damn you New York!) and Mariners left fielder Ichiro. The screens are nice, sure, and all of the previews and videos we've seen so far follow suit. Hit the jump for the pictures in question and if you're a baseball fan who just happens to not own a Playstation 3, look forward to this title in stores at the beginning of March 2009.
