It was always just challenging enough to make me feel like I was doing something interesting and, ideally, exciting. Unlike other sports games, I didn't have to monkey around with rosters or worry about draft days, or how much I'd charge for the average seat in the upper deck. It was pure. It was baseball sans the bullshit. Unlike other sports games, I could load up the game and instantly get a tangible payoff."
