I wish I could include video evidence! Was robbed of a homer!! The swing is [censored]. That moment took me 30 minutes, that is how long all of the others combined took me!

SDS

I was a catcher back in my playing days so I always like to see backstops get a Topps Now or be a boss or headliner or whatever. And I’m still going to take him as one of my 3 picks due to some sort of very misguided loyalty. But he’s got the 2nd worst swing for a diamond Mets catcher, and that’s saying a lot.

I picked him as well!! Because he was going for the most out of the 4 left to choose from lol...

Probably because everyone hates his swing, so very few people are taking him which will lead to a relative scarcity of that card.

His no doubt flip is something special...problem is that he will rarely hit one lol

Great. Look so forward to doing that one 🙄 once my Madden 21 trial downloads. I have the last 3 weeks to grind through plus the Lester 7th inning program.

SDS

Use directional and power swing. Took me 3 tries but every game he hit at least 1 HR and the last game he was 2-2 with 2 no doubters.

SDS

It’s like, maybe you need a lighter bat there, bro.

The rest of the moments were super easy (even the Bo 7/7/7 was a breeze), but the deck is definitely stacked against you on this one. He’s super slow, and the Nats have two fast outfielders with very good arms (sorry Soto), so getting a non-HR XBH is a pain. Also, he hits 7th in the lineup, and the Mets are the home team, so I had a couple tries when I only got 3 ABs. And his swing just doesn’t seem to generate any power. Hopefully you knock it out quick and easy, dude!

Yep, all were really easy but that one. Took a little less than an hour in total. Bo took me 3 games

SDS

Took me 1 try and I cannot hit... Being a Mets fan helped but he hit 2 homers in 3 at bats for me

I thought I would struggle on this one

SDS

Agreed with OP. I breezed through the other moments and I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve had to do this one and I still can’t beat it. The combination of nationals pitchers being completely unwilling to throw a strike, his snail like speed, and his odd lack of power for a guy with 94 power is making this one of my most hated moments ever.

SDS

I hit a ground rule double that was scored E-8. That would have finished the moment for me. Took me 10 more tries after that. I'm hoping for a POTM Lightning Tatis, so this will be worth it.

I have to second the dude who said to use directional + power swing. Once I switched to that, I finished it on my second try — and it was with 2 monster HRs on my first 2 ABs. I could barely reach the warning track before, but the ball flies off his bat with power/directional.

He can't be any slower then the catching speedster himself Yasmani Grandal and his 7 speed. His POTM moments were brutal. I can't remember how many times I had to try his but it was a bunch.

I will third that dude. Directional + power swing is key.

Well I guess there's a first time for everything. I have only used zone hitting this year. I understand the idea, you hold the left analog stick up and hit x or ⬛ to hit (preferably ⬛ power). Does the direction up left or right make a difference in this other than the direction your aiming?
