    Just a few days ago Sony San Diego reiterated a policy that has always been effect for account suspensions and bans relating to MLB The Show 16. This of course is all completely reasonable. Basically every online video game has a similar TOS in place and it's just a matter of how violations are ultimately acted upon. Yesterday though a mass banning apparently took place as users took to social media and forums to express frustration and seek answers. They're finding plenty of the former...

    The latest roster update for MLB The Show 16 looks to be a course correction for a number of players who have disappointed this season or are far exceeding expectations. There are also some new cards for Diamond Dynasty that will be among the most desired in the mode. Giancarlo Stanton has plummeted going down 6 points to 87 Overall. What had been an excessively overdue need for a change to his ratings, which hadn't been touched at all this season, was pointed out last week. It's a crushi...

    It's starting to become a little more difficult to determine exactly what's going on with the roster updates to MLB The Show 16. There are players who have clearly needed to drop for a long time who haven't, and others who long ago earned upgrades but continue to be ignored. One example of the former is Giancarlo Stanton. He has remained at 93 Overall all season despite batting .193 and he's getting worse by the month. He hit .173 in May and .116 through the first half of June. Someon...
