Tied even before the bonus time. This is pretty great, to have this nail biting moment in every round instead of every half hour

They should have a lefty and righty bat at the same time and compete for the ball. That's some all star poo poo.

what is the point of making them wait for the ball to land before pitching again, just to make it easier on the tv broadcast?

It's also legal to punch the other guy if he hits the ball first.

I still want to see MVP 2005 style where they compete to be the first to hit a set distance, and homeruns get you an extra 100 points.

Only fair. If you manage to not shatter your wrists you're free to do as you please.

Likewise they should mic up all players on the sides and display their names on the screen when they talk or scream video game chat style. No more announcers.

All the announcers they had were as bad or worse than Buck. Half the time they couldn't keep track of the players, where they hit from, what score they had etc. The only good thing I could say was the actual presentation of the golf was good, they had pro tracer everywhere and mics on the players/caddies a lot of the time. When the announcers shut up it was great.
