I haven't taken a chance on a baseball game since the SuperNES. I am pretty blown away. There is a difficulty setting for everybody and the computer AI is very good. The teams are programmed very well and act just like their real-life counterparts do. The developers definitely did their homework and paid great attention to detail.
Note: It seems like at all levels (AA to MLB) the base runners are unrealistically fast. They are almost always able to tag up even on outfield throws that are not particularly deep. I have played 7 seasons as a pitcher in Road to the Show mode and literally not one person has ever been thrown out at home or at third base. the cutoff man is also stupidly slow turning around and throwing which they are not in the Bigs.

The Show is always the best baseball game to buy. I rented this and played for about 5 days and went and bought it, and I am still playing it. If you are a MLB fan then choose this. Much better than the 2k series.
