Post your preferences. Any under the radar gems out there? Sneaky AS starters that play well? Maddux on HOF worthy?

SDS

I think Paxton is very good on HOF

SDS

Never been in the HOF levels of ranked. Are control pitchers the meta?

SDS

Singer on All-Star for 5 innings at a time has been good to me

SDS

Maddux. If you hit your spots he plays on any difficulty, he has so much movement and obviously the control.

I sold Wood, flipped some cards and bought Maddux. First game complete game 1 ER on bloop single in 9th and 8ks on allstar. His delivery is so smooth, and his control is unbelievable. Everyone says I got lucky and played someone terrible, but his control and pitch selection make him a keeper imo.

I swear I faced Maddux on all star difficulty the other day and he was giving me fits. I scored 3 runs in five innings off of Maddux tho. But when he was spotting the cutter, curveball, then throwing the circle-change just below the zone it was literally impossible to hit! It was a helpless feeling when he was dotting everything for awhile. My 3 runs were all on home runs. George Brett hit a solo homer on a hanging curveball, Thames hit a solo shot on a fastball up and away, and Larry Walker hit a hanging Circle change-up. After the new conquest map comes out today Maddux price should fall some more, and I’ll definitely be getting him

SDS

Wood on allstar? You’re a brave man

SDS

Hamels is good on any difficulty

SDS

Marichal is 11-0 with a 1.5 era in this event for me! I know it’s only a handful of at bats a game, but his control and pitch differential play on AS.
