About Judy

As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

The regular baseball season is 162 games long and as baseball managers deal with the obstacles of maintaining a winning record through this lengthy period, they must make critical, team-impacting decisions. A key part of ensuring a successful season is to always keep a close eye out for emerging talent in the minor league system. In Major League Baseball 2K5, a brand new minor league system empowers players to maximize the potential of budding young stars as well as weeding out mediocre talent.

Gamers will be able to pick a minor league staff consisting of a manager, batting coach, pitching coach, and fielding/speed coach, each specializing in specific skills. Players must decide what type of skills will help mold their young talent, into their desired style of player. Keeping track of hot prospects around the minor leagues is also vital if gamers want to be a big player in the trade game. Most of all, a complete farm report is available to the player, detailing all the facts a general manager will need to continue building a strong stable of future major league players.
