I recommend setting your XBOX down on a level and hard surface (don't put it upright on a stand). I have seen many disks with radially arching scratches (the worst possible type of scratch for a CD/DVD) that seem to be caused by some of the optical drives (DVD drive) of the at least three different ones that the XBOX 360's come with), and I believe that keeping the drive tray horizontal, level, and being very careful with the Disks may prevent the scratches that may be causing your freezing.
I have also seen freezing in XBOX 360 games for no apparent reason at all, I thought it may be overheating at one point and made sure the console had plenty of space around it to breath and that seemed to help. Since you've had yours for a year and a half (mines only been out of the box for 3 months, so the main board is pretty clean yet), it may need internal cleaning (can be done with static free canned compressed air, or better yet by an electronics bench Tech.). If in a smoking environment, the tar and dust combining is more than likely the culprit.
Let us know if you've already tried the above, and Good luck.

My XBox 360 freezes


Here are things to try.

1. Try another game and check if it only happens on this game ( MLB 2k9 )

2. Select memory -> Select Y button for device options then press the following sequence on your controller

X,X Left Bumper, Right Bumper, X,X

You will see a message that goes like this " This will perform maintenance on your xbox 360 storage device, would you like to continue? Select Yes

3. Delete your save game. or try to start a new game..

Because this is an indication that the certain point that you are trying to load is already corrupted and its your saved game.
