God Squad Rant, Etc.

SDS

I am rated 500 something, and I am facing god squad after god squad. Now, after this patch, Sheffield, Biggio, and Mantle, they can just foul everything off, and if it isn't a bomb, it'll be some bleeder that is the result of late/jammed/early/rolled timing.

I have never seen the fielding this bad. I never imagined that SDS could mess up the fielding. This, coupled with the ability of the aforementioned hitters to get bleeders just makes it very difficult. I have Mookie Betts in right field making terrible plays. I have Gleyber Torres at second base, not able to field routine grounders.

Did they nerf changeups? Almost every time I throw a changeup, it gives me red and the thing is an absolute hanger (post-patch, and analog).

This year feels more pay to play than the last few.

SDS

You've "never" seen fielding this bad? Try a couple weeks ago when balls would bounce off heads at least once a game, hard to believe you've never seen anything worse than now.

Also, hanging pitches have nothing to do with post-patch, pitching has been awful all year

SDS

They are making fielding worse (and pitching). I think SDS has proven they generally make the problems worse with patches, not better. The games are what they are. It's just sad because hitting feels okay this year.

Once again, how is fielding worse with this patch? How is pitching worse? Provide me examples.
because

  1. Before this patch, pitching was still terrible, stuff hangs all the time, that hasn't changed.
  2. Fielding, while not good, is in a much better place then it was a couple weeks ago, anything near the wall is still sketch, but at least balls don't bounce off heads in normal positions.

So once again, please provide context on how this patch made those issues 'worse'

SDS

Ball bounces out of Chipper's glove, and back in (totally unrealistic). Mookie doesn't lock onto fly balls (Mookie is a 99 fielder).

How about this for you, fielding is no better post-patch--SDS should just stop messing with it because they're just going to make it worse.
