In fact, the most recent baseball game collecting dust on my closet floor is MVP Baseball 2004. It proudly displays Albert Pujols on its cover.
However, after watching the marketing campaign presented by MLB '09: The Show, maybe we all should give it a shot.
In their two recent commercials, they feature players such as Dustin Pedroia, Tim Lincecum (in human form as well as CGI), and a beautiful cameo by newly acquired S.F. Giant Randy Johnson.
While the Lincecum commercial is clever and entertaining, the Pedroia piece is clearly the pick of the litter.
Even as a die-hard Yankee supporter, i grow more fond of the reigning AL MVP on a daily basis.
Check them out for yourself if you haven't already. Presented to you for your viewing pleasure:
