Is it me or are these new graphics a downgrade from those of root. The graphics are small even for a 32 year guy like myself to see and they don't show player stats like AVG, HR, RBI from the second at bat on...

Yes. They are too small.

I agree, the graphics are worse. And a few other things too, like some of the sounds that make me mute my TV.

Root was excellent. This is a slight downgrade but tolerable.

What happened to Root? I watch on mlb pkg from NC, and just noticed the name change. I figured they were bought/merged like time warner cable is now spectrum.

It took me a while to get used to the lower right corner as opposed to the upper left, which every single network in every sport uses since Fox NFL introduced it about twenty five years ago.

I like the new format. I find the stats easier to read.

My one big complaint is when they show the score book graphic of a guy's previous ABs in the game.

It used to be like this

1 2 3 4 5 6
K HR F9

and now it looks like this:

1 3 5
K HR F9'

took me a while to get used to that

I have no complaints so far about the switch. However, whoever does the sound mixing is freaking terrible at their job. At least a couple dozen times a game and especially after commercial breaks, the mics are WAY WAY too loud and then the rest of the game they're kind of quiet.

The Pirates are on fire ever since the name change.
