"I Just Lost To 'The Biggest' Scrub" Story

SDS

I lost 2-1 in the top of the 9th. (He had lead going into top of the 9th and was the home team)

Short Game Summary:

Pitching perfect game through 6 innings with prestige Palmer. The game allowed me to yield only 1 run off 7 hits, along with 3 of 4 perfect/perfect going for outs up to that point. Everything solid that I hit, went right to him for outs. In the meantime, he was god awful. He ended up striking out 23 times out of possible 24 outs. "Pitch it anywhere....he'll swing at anything...," yeah, he was one of those. Having only 1 run lead must have kept him from bailing out and quitting. Bottom of 7th and 8th, opponent gets HR's off of "forced pitch over the middle of the plate." What a joke. He struck out 23 times out of possible 24 outs but still managed to win because he connected on two birthday swings.

Wow, ....yeah,......that one stung a little.

Can you imagine how happy and ecstatic he must have been?

To feel like he had no chance at winning, probably on the brink of quitting, and then gets to experience an actual miracle in the making. And for that, I don't mind being on the losing end I suppose.

SDS

I lost to a guy who was rated 54 with a 1-1 record last week. He got 115 points. I don’t care these days, I just play to play.

SDS

Normally sob stories don't interest me, but this one was pretty good. Who did he pitch and what RS level was it?

He pitched with Kluber 6 IP, Foulke 2 IP, and Rivera 1 IP.

RS level: I went from 628 to 603. He went from 682 to 707, which I'm completely confused and shocked, and not even going to attempt to understand how he is rated that high. Not that it's a high rating, but for someone who strikes out 23 x's? Swings at everything, just praying and hoping he connects, lol. I'm literally throwing offspeed in the dirt 9 out of 10 pitches. He knows it's gonna be a pitch in the dirt, and he's still swinging and missing! lmao. The 2 forced pitches gets jacked. It doesn't make any sense 🙂 lol.

I've peaked at 836, usually around 700's minimum by end of the season. I have a less than stellar .230-.240 BA, and can get by with pitching, but dude, this guy was at .180-.190 BA.

Why do people when they write these retellings always feel the need to embellish it?

Case in point "The game allowed me to yield only 1 run off 7 hits, along with 3 of 4 perfect/perfect going for outs up to that point"

There was only one perfect/perfect in the game and it was by Stan Musial who got a hit.

The rest of the story seems totally plausible and you weren't lying about your opponent striking out that much, so why embellish that one little detail?

Because there were 4 at bats that gave the "crack" sound 3 of them going for outs. Not trying to embellish anything.

That's not perfect/perfect though, so while you probably weren't "trying" to embellish it, you weren't telling the whole truth either on that one little part.

It's clearly a game you should not have a lost, I have no doubts about that, but you are misrepresenting it by calling it perfect where the feedback says it wasn't, even if the bat crack sounded good.

Sorry, it's just mind boggling to me, this is a great, a great example of an overall issue with MLB 20, how fluke home runs happen because of things like dumb good release pitches being hit for home runs, so saying that you hit 3-4 perfect/perfects, when it's a verifiable fact that you didn't seems out of place.

Otherwise I absolutely feel your frustration, I honestly don't play much ranked anymore.

Huh? That's a post from February, and that was true at the time because MLB 20 wasn't out yet, it was absolutely true in MLB 19

But nice deflection.
