Seriously Whats the strategy

SDS

Gonna do my best to not make this a complaint post. But seriously I need help in trying to figure what im doing wrong and if there's anything i can do.

Is this bad? https://imgur.com/gallery/rAfSyDK

This is how most of my games look as far as putting balls in play. Not elite but as you can tell my timing is mostly always on point and so is my contact. I put the ball in play alot. This game I only struck out twice and didnt walk had 7 hits.

Question is am I putting the ball in play too much? Is the game penalizing for too much contact? I mean should I strike out more, walk more(which is sometimes hard to do when your opponent throw strikes like this game) and these are my best hitters who can't get a thing to drop.

Trout 4balls PIP 2N13 1 N12
BELLINGER 3Balls JE14 N14 N12
Mantle N14 N13 JL14
Sandberg PPFO JE15

This was a game where a got a ton of solid contact, yet i noticed my opponent had way less BPIP but a higher percentage( with way worse contact results other than a few PPs) Was able to come back and take the lead but got hit with a very late ok double that scored two runs and he took the lead, After that just got worse.

But how are you guys able to push through into CS and WS.

Do you guys feel like you get bettwr results the less Balls You put in play? Is my contact just not good enough. I just need answers lol.

Im not a great player by any means, i get in the mid 700's normally but i usually have really good timing and placement. The game just doesn't reflect it most of the time. Good okay all game and the ball is dead center of the pci. Meanwhile my opponent is getting very late jammed and very early ok hits/homeruns. Hitting is pretty frustrating for me this year anyways. I wish i had good advice but believe me your not the only one struggling to figure things out

Yeah Idk. That's why I was trying to get some answers, See if people feel they get better results with a certain approach. Question for you though. Do you have times when you're on a nice roll. Maybe on a 3 or 4 streak and hitting well, then all of sudden the next 3 or 4 games any and evrything goes wrong. This just happened starting with this game , the next 2or3 games its like Im playing a totallt different game. Late on everything, inept fielders, etc etc.

Definitely. Today being one of those days. Squaring up pitches, getting weak pop ups. Opponent according to feedback is closing their eyes and swinging and kicking my [censored]. Cant locate my pitches etc. I was actually doing well up until yesterday. I dont know man. Something definitely changed in my book
