How do you get the Harper card for MLB 18? I preordered the deluxe version from the PS Store and I don’t have it yet?

Can they please add back in season mode or at least the ability to change season length in franchise mode. i won’t buy a show game again until they reimplement this feature.

I hope they have an option to call your agent, so u can request a trade if ur not happy, renegotiate ur contract etc…would be so much easier than waiting to be traded…also have the ability to challenge certain plays as well.

Man I’ve bought MLB The Show like 5-6 years in a row.. I love the game.. But come on quit it with the $99 editions with the hats.
No one wants a hat… Package it with a baseball themed DS4 controller or something good. Not a useless hat.

One of the PS3 MLB The Show games (forget the exact year) came with a custom baseball themed controller and that was awesome!

Why Harper? He sucked last year. How about Betts and the kid who gave him the necklace he wore all year long.

We need the ability to charge the mound. We need the ability to argue balls and strikes. We need a pitching stance creator or pitching motion creator. We need all an organization’s minor league teams including a ball, a ball short season, and rookie. We need to have every single real minor league baseball players’ name in Show in an organizations’ affiliates. We can add owner mode back like in the previous Shows by charging concessions, having different banks, etc. We need the ability to request trades in Road to the Show. We should have the ability to challenge a play on every play regardless if it’s close or not because sometimes we can’t challenge when it seems so close of a play to call. We need to have the ability to create our own baseball field with awesome features!!! like we can draw how big and the pattern and design of the stadium!!!

    I completely agree. The whole point of these games is to make it feel as real as possible. We don’t want the PG-MLB, we want the MLB. More homerun flash away videos, more trade settings incorporating relationships like harper and Bryant or how certain players will play for certain cities for less money. I understand they don’t want go promote the players ill actions but we want realistic.

Thank goodness it wasn’t a red sox player –for the third time– that I feared in light of the world series championship. I would take anyone except a sox player –again– or MLB The Show 19 would be the first edition I would skip since ’99. Harper is awesome!

MLB18 Disappoint me because they remove Online Franchise, I was 1 of the 40 millions that not BOUGHT the game. Bring Online Franchise and you will have better sales number this year.

what i want mlb19 to come with is more designs for jersey like camo hats and jerseys. i want them to put in custom stadiums where you can make it so u have a retracable roof and turf and cool desings around the ball park. i want them to come with diffrent classic stadiums and diffrent minor league stadiums in diamond dynasty. I WANT THE PACK ODDS TO CHANGE im tired of buying or opening 100 packs and the best i get is a diamond bobble head which i want out of the gae that made the game so dumb this the souviners and i hated the imortals and stuff like that. also can you plz turn down the requierd point when u trade in for a program or tuen the things up so it dosnt take 15 million hats to get a mission done. lastly i would lie if mlb would put more brands in for equipment its the same stuff every year and after you play a game you get stubs and also get some tickets i dont want to have to grind a mission i dont want to get tickets to get a player i want and make player of the month packs not so much stubs and limit the packs from five to 3 to make it cost less i love mlb i buy the $99 edition the past 3 years and im a huge baseball fan i hope some of this or all come to mlb the show 19.

Bring more of the realism back to franchise mode. Ejections for arguing strikes, press conferences, players persuade to go to a city for less money or for a relationship with a coach or player. The whole point of these games is to provide the most realistic experience, then give us the MLB not the PG-MLB.

They need custom stadiums, more equipment brands, no immortals, guaranteed finest cards in EVERY PACK, season mode, charging the mound, challenging for every play, and more ejections. I turn on ejections and I never got ejected in Franchise mode.
