Joe Mauer - Character Pitch

8 replies 398 views Edited Nov 13, 2012

MLB The Show is one of Sony's best selling franchises and Joe Mauer was one of their best cover atheletes and brand representatives over the years. He should be in PSASBR. Here's my pitch:

 

His move set would have a variety of bat and ball attacks and his block could be like a catcher blocking the plate. As for supers:

 
Level 1:  "Sliding Into Home" - Home plate appears a short distance away from Mauer (a la Fat Princess's cake) as he luges forward into a slide that kicks up dirt and kills anyone between him and the plate.
Level 2:  "Bring the Heat"  -  Mauer gets into a catcher's stance as an unnamed pitcher appears at the far left or right of the screen (relative to where Mauer's looking) and throws a fastball into Mauer's glove, killing anyone it hits along the way. This could work similarly to Radec's level 2, wiping out everything at ground level between him and a wall.
Level 3:  "Batting Practice"  -  This one would be more like Radec or Sly's level 3 where you see Mauer in the batter's box in the foreground and aim his batting practice swings at the players on the field, killing anyone who gets hit by a ball.
 
Well there you have it, let's get the community around this one, guys!

"Gr8 idea, he will fit in with the rest of the roster phenominally."

 

    The roster doesn't even blend with itself...that's the point. I think it would be a funny addition that could easily work.

 

"Please tell me you're joking."

 

    I was somewhat kidding, but it could definitely work. I'd pay for a DLC pack including him.

 

"...it'd be like having Superman or Goku"

 

    Wait, what?

 

"Ignore the haters, those are all great ideas."

 

    Thank you!

Know what, you're right. As much as this is a silly idea and will definitely never happen, the supers you gave him are great imo and if they really wanted to for some reason, they could work him into this game. Would feel odd to play as a real life person though.
