Some of the same bugs that have plagued 2K sports' baseball games since MLB 2K5 are still intact. If you pinch hit for a pitcher, the batter cannot stay in the game (unless he is to be a meatball pitcher). The pitching interface is awesome, but the batting leaves much to be desired with many false swings and the check swing doesn't always work. Also, don't bother trying to determine if the pitch will be a ball or a strike, because if you wait until the ball is visible to swing at it, you'll be late. No customization of the players' appearance, even for created players. You get a random guy and can't even change the skin color (but you can change the height, weight, and body type). Overall, this game is OK, but there are too many glaring issues for me to like it. I would rather play the graphically challenged MLB Power Pros than this game.
