Who Will Win The All-Star Game? MLB 09 The Show Knows

Alex Armour's Avatar Posted by on Jul 10, 2009 // Senior Manager, Public Relations

The streak is over. Well, virtually.

Now that the 33rd and final players have been selected (congratulations Inge and Victorino), MLB 09 The Show has simulated the 2009 MLB All-Star Game. The prediction: The National League All-Stars will win for the first time this century, 5-2.

Lincecum All-Star

The most authentic baseball simulation available, MLB 09 The Show’s ultra-realistic AI doesn’t predict a slugfest. Rather, MVP Tim Lincecum sets the tone by throwing two scoreless innings to start the game, striking out four batters. The game is predicted to include a number of spectacular plays, including a towering solo home run from the YankeesMark Teixeira in the 4th inning, and a key play in the 7th where the Blue JaysAaron Hill is thrown out at the plate on a perfect throw from Ryan Braun. A combined bullpen effort of four strikeouts from the PadresHeath Bell and the MetsFrancisco Rodriguez helps seal the win for the National League, who hadn’t won an All-Star game in its last 12 attempts.

Ramirez All-Star Teixeira All-Star

MLB 09 The Show is the top-rated baseball game available. Is it accurate? You’ll find out this Tuesday!

Best baseball game anywhere

Sorry The Show, the N.L. is especially horrible this year. Ain’t gonna happen.

I’m buying this game tomorrow, can’t wait :) .


+ jipmg on July 10th, 2009 at 4:09 pm said:

I know its stupid but this game should be out in europe too

stranger things have happened rockies in the series red socks win two years in a row why not national league win the all star game?


+ nymph3ta on July 10th, 2009 at 4:20 pm said:

If the NL does win, I see them winning by one run.


+ nandosupes on July 10th, 2009 at 4:27 pm said:

the AL will win the All-Star game.


+ Thrasher20 on July 10th, 2009 at 4:29 pm said:

Sweet game :)


+ cLOLe on July 10th, 2009 at 4:33 pm said:

How about releasing dat dar All-Star Rosters in an update for onilne play in the game?

Perty plz wit a churry on top?!?!?!


+ coolasj19 on July 10th, 2009 at 5:16 pm said:

if the score is this i will cancel one of my reservations and buy this.


+ HatmanTc on July 10th, 2009 at 6:15 pm said:

i wish they would release the memorial and 4th of july caps. and do more dlc for uni’s

great game either way.

once they make the online a bit easier to use. and not as laggy(which it has gotten better since launch) and few minor clitches this will be the best sports game on the market.

Phenomenal game.

I used to be a huge MVP(PC modded)/ASB fan. This game has finally surpassed both. It is spectacular.

The graphics, gameplay, “little things”. It has it all. I cant wait for next year when they make it even better.

Lets just hope they iron out all the Franchise bugs, which I have full confidence in them.

The game OWNS!

Ha, the NL winning? I doubt it, the AL owns at nearly every position. The only one outright to the NL is 1B with Pujols.

And when did the Red Sox win two years in a row? Maybe in the early 1900s, but not recently. Must have missed that one…


+ Zhi13 on July 10th, 2009 at 7:53 pm said:

No wayyyy
AL ownz the NL League :D

If it wasn’t for the horrible series of injuries with the Mets, you guys would be accurate with your Boston vs Mets World Series prediction as well (except the Mets would have won). Sadly, now, it looks like the Dodgers are going to represent the NL now.



+ Lambrick on July 10th, 2009 at 10:30 pm said:

this is very awesome, but also a little scary too. i’ll definitely be watching the all-star game to see if the NL finally does win it!


+ AsteroidBlues on July 10th, 2009 at 10:35 pm said:

Sweet! Go NL


+ Timidin on July 10th, 2009 at 11:32 pm said:

If this happens, I will buy the game.


+ Sereal_Killer on July 11th, 2009 at 4:24 am said:

please release this in europe.

i prefer this over all the other mlb games here.

but if push comes to shove ill have to buy the bigs 2.


+ TheTwelve on July 11th, 2009 at 6:12 am said:

For all folks in Europe: PS3 games are region free! Import. There’s no way Sony is going to spend all of that money localizing a game for all of your various languages when the demand and fan support for baseball over in Europe is very small.



+ lyfestory on July 11th, 2009 at 7:25 am said:

honestly, i love baseball and all that, but the AllStar game is just boring.. the fan voting isn’t always very good and the fact that the game decides the World Series home stadium advantage, its really meaningless.. and the Home Run derby ruins some of it’s participants for the 2nd half of the season… it just doesn’t have the same intrigue… just give the players a 3 day break and move on…


+ Sereal_Killer on July 11th, 2009 at 8:28 am said:

i know i can import them but its stil sad to see that the other mlb games come out here but this one doesnt


+ GooDer_gAMe on July 11th, 2009 at 8:54 am said:

aaron hill thrown out at the plate? I dont see that too often, lol, I guess we’ll see how close it actually is.


+ DCNats11 on July 11th, 2009 at 9:19 am said:

Why can’t I edit the All-Star game rosters in MLB 09: The Show? Will the new 2009 teams be provided in this week’s roster updates? It’s kind of lame to simulate this without offering people who bought the game a chance to play it too.


+ Boots555 on July 11th, 2009 at 9:21 am said:

NO WAY! I just played this match myself against my cousin.


+ puto09 on July 11th, 2009 at 10:57 am said:

No way!! Go AL!!!!!!!!


+ Griffins22 on July 12th, 2009 at 5:03 pm said:

Go NL!!!!!


+ Dante989 on July 12th, 2009 at 8:09 pm said:

Darkmaze88 the Red Sox didn’t win 2 years in a row.
They won in 2004 and then again in 2007.
but back to topic…

It would be interesting to see the difference between this simulation and the real score.
By the way.
Do you guys watch the game? or do you actually play it? or do both?
I’m just curious


+ dejenmeentra16 on July 12th, 2009 at 9:47 pm said:

I don think thats gonna happen the AL has a much better line up then the NL


+ IrishPete333 on July 13th, 2009 at 5:27 am said:

AL will most definitely take it again this year!


+ TheTwelve on July 14th, 2009 at 8:53 pm said:

ARGH…MLB 09, I was counting on you to get this right…



+ AZdude1 on July 15th, 2009 at 2:09 pm said:

Next year, players should wear their real jerseys in the all star game.

BTW, i was hoping this was right. i hate the AL. hope NL wins soon.
