Come on man!! Sinkers galore!

SDS

AGAIN!? another pitcher with a sinker??? Does SDS even LOOK at a pitchers repertoire before they put these cards out??? I dont care if the sinker is the META, I want REAL pitches that these players ACTUALLY threw!!

SDS

Who ya talkin about?

SDS

Umm Bob Feller threw a sinker though. It went with his curveball.

SDS

Oh him, don't think he had a sinker in previous years games did he?

He did, same card as last year with outlier added on

SDS

Just be happy he doesn't have his knuckleball.

Oh God that would be insane (and accurate.)

From: https://sabr.org/bioproj/person/bob-feller/
"His fastball revived to the extent that, if not back to 1940s standards, it was above average. He had developed a sinker to go with his curveball and slider, and sometimes even broke out a knuckleball."

SDS

If they still gave us cards like Niekro and Tiant (who absolutely deserve to be in a baseball game) nobody would be complaining about sinkers.

SDS

Fun fact Bob Feller is tied with Nolan Ryan for the most 1 hitters in a career with 12 and 3 no hitters.

SDS

I’ve come to learn that if the sinker shows up in the 4-5 spot, it isn’t really effective

Only pitcher to throw a no hitter on opening day.

Correct.

The issue isn’t giving sinkers to guys that threw them, the issue is SDS had no solution to one pitch being incredibly unbalance and just gave that pitch too everybody. The integrity is kinda gone when Rivera gets to attack how Feller did, using a pitch he never threw and Emmanuel Close gets to throw a better cutter than Rivera.

I mean how dumb would it look if Madden just gave Tom Brady 99 sprint speed because Patrick Mahomes is faster than him, or 2k gave Lebron got a 99 three point rating because Curry had it. It wasn’t a very good solution.

You are ABSOLUTELY right!!

Speaking of sinkers can we get an 86 BO Johnny Venters as a henchman
