Game caters to the bad players

SDS

. The game caters to the bad players. I just played someone that I was clearly better than. I had 5 perfect perfects only 1 was a hit and zero were home runs. I had 7 good goods. Zero we’re hits. I had a bunch of good okays despite the fact that each one was in the middle of the pci not even close the edge. I dominated pitching aside from 1 inning I gave up 2 runs and ended up losing. It’s so dumb. If I dominate a game having consistent good goods and perfect perfect and pitch great. I should win easily

Not to be that guy, but

that’s baseball

While it’s inconsistent, it doesn’t cater to bad players. If it did, then there’d be different top players every RS. I see the same old people at the top of the leaderboard. We’ve all had games like that, but I’ve had 50x the amount of games where it plays fine.

No, I’m not being an SDS apologist (there’s still flaws), but this is a reach.

SDS

There were 5 Perfect/perfects in your last game, and 4 of them were hits. Only one was an out. And you did homer on one of them with Tatis.

And your opponent had two of them, so he was getting perfects to.

I get what you’re saying. In essence sure. But not a good good (ie a barrel hit) should never have an exit velocity less than the pitch speed. It breaks physics. So you can say that’s just real baseball. And yeah what I described may have been. But what SDs does but needing exit velocity on clearly well hit balls is not just baseball. It’s SDS trying to level the playing field for bad players so they keep spending money on the game

See I feel differently on this topic than most. SDS bit the bullet and said hey look this happens and we are making it happen for a reason. League wide BABIP is around .300 and even on barrels the batting average is .800. So 70% of the time you hit the ball it’s still an out and 20% of the time you cream the ball and it’s still an out. It sucks but actually one of the things I don’t mind about the game.

Can I get some of that I suck and I lose alot more then I win

Is that really true? That BABIP average is .300. Cuz I really didn’t think so. I thought it was closer to .450

Okay yeah you’re right. But still weird to me that BABIP would be .300. Seems like it would be higher

SDS

13 teams last year had a BABIP over .300, 17 did not. League high was Chisox with .321 and low was Toronto at .280.
