MLB 11 'Yankee Killer' trailer has revisionist history


7:30 PM on 02.07.2011



Sony has just released a new trailer for MLB 11 The Show, and this one features Minnesota Twins catcher Joe Mauer, who is on the cover of the game for the second year in a row. I wasn't aware that Mauer's performance against my favorite baseball team had earned him the name "Yankee Killer," but apparently, that's what SCE San Diego has dubbed him. In the two-minute clip, Mauer drills an 0-2 C.C. Sabathia pitch down the left-field line at Yankee Stadium for a two-run double, putting the Twins ahead by one.

Of course, the trailer obviously doesn't take the 2010 American League Division Series into account. In a three-game sweep by the Yankees, Mauer went 3-for-12 with a walk, no runs scored, no extra-base hits, and three strikeouts. It wasn't Mauer who "killed" the Yankees in the playoffs last year, but the pitching staff of the Texas Rangers.

Oh, right -- videogames! Sony's MLB 11 The Show will be out on March 8th, just four weeks from tomorrow, for PS3, PSP, and PS2. I'll be posting a hands-on preview of the game very soon.

Ah, so that's where those silly Madden GIFs are coming from

I don't care at all about Madden, but GIFs? Damn you, Electronic Arts. You've won. The company has created a GIF maker for Madden NFL 15, "designed to help fans celebrate their favorite team's biggest plays and challenge thei...more

Madden 15 glitches: 1 foot tall players, rocketing linemen, & more

Madden 15 is out. I will write more on the game this week (preview: the PS3 and 360 versions are a shady cash grab and missing new features).  Until then, let's have some fun. more
