Based off 86 what will 99 Rivera look like

SDS

Or his highest card. Mostly playing this game just for that card tbh. Figured I’d play now so I can start saving up.
I believe he should have 99 control. Would be helpful with his pitch repertoire.
Super high H/9 and pretty good k/9 maybe like 98.
What else?

SDS

A sinker

SDS

a knuckleball

SDS

Probably gonna be 125/125 and they already buffed the cutter in general to make him effective.

SDS

He did throw a curveball in his last All Star game appearance. Just sayin haha

SDS

Also heard he threw a knuckler in a bullpen session....so probably one of those

SDS

He should have some kind of outlier for movement on his cutter. Plus 99 control of it. You'll be able to dot the cutter anywhere you want

SDS

If I had to guess itll be a cut and paste from the kenley last year

SDS

Honestly I can’t see him being in my bullpen no matter how high a rating he is. Unless he has an OP sinker or something. That’s hurts too, cause he’s one of my favorite Yankees ever.

SDS

An eephus

SDS

His stamina should be in the 40's since he has pitched 3 innings in relief on multiple occasions.

SDS

I am guessing Mariano will get a Sig Series for his best card. So they can kinda take liberties with it and juice whatever pitches/attributes they need to

SDS

Unfortunately I don't think there is a way to capture his dominance in this game but I have to imagine his /9s, cutter control, and clutch will be at the maximum or close to it

You’re saying there will be at least 7 relievers that are clearly better than a 99 Rivera?

It’s not about being better, it’s about the pitches. That’s all that matters in this silly goose game. I’m sorry but fastball and cutter will get smashed against good players all day.

SDS

Hope his cutter is nastier. Everytime I throw it, no matter how well I hit my spot, ends up over the fence.

SDS

Cutter sucks in this game. If you miss its a home run if its perfect perfect.....50 50 chance its a home run.

SDS

A 2-seamer to run the opposite direction of his famous cutter.

SDS

Cutter is actually a good pitch in this game. Obviously, if you miss, it’s going like every other pitch you hang, but the whole point is to not throw it down the middle.
