Mlb the Sinker 20

SDS

Wonder how you guys feel about it.
Instead of actually fixing pitching, seems like they decided to fix it by just giving every pitcher a sinker

SDS

That’s the move for this year

SDS

Was like that in 2019 too. Just funny that they gave everyone a sinker like you mentioned instead of fixing it.

SDS

Fastballs are meat. As usual, instead of fixing the problem with the game they resolved the issue by giving everyone a sinker to substitute for the fastball.

SDS

Hey that’s not fair! They gave everyone a slurve too!

SDS

Haha my favorite is Chapman having a sinker. Don’t know when he developed that since I watch every Yankee game.

Bad sign when instead of trying to fix a problem, they just give you cheese to "balance" the problem.

Reading the thread, I felt like this was an old Oprah episode. Here, you get a sinker, you get a sinker, and you get a sinker. Everybody gets a sinker.

Not sure every pitcher has a sinker in the game. You are correct about it being a little op.

SDS

Pitchers which sinkers IRL are usually called “sinkerballers”. Since they’re not very common. In this game if you have a sinker you’re called “not useless”.

SDS

If you said MiLB the Sinker you would have hit it dead on.

As a Yankee fan who has watched a LOT of Yankee baseball o can confidently say that Chapman does not throw a sinker, certainly doesn't throw a mid-90s sinker, and DEFINITELY doesn't throw a mid-90s sinker AND 2-seamer

SDS

Personally, I think SDS doesn't know anything about baseball. They got the jobs through connects and are clueless about baseball in general. Not just chapman but with other live series players too. The stats just don't match up and/nor make any sense.

I am not trying to be a [censored], your post piqued my interest so I looked it up. Chapman threw 98 sinkers in 2019.

True, but he does not throw a 2seam, but they refuse to give him a Changeup which he does throw more often
