Does Anybody Sit Primarily Offspeed?

SDS

I always sit fastball and sinker. And while I enjoy smashing fastballs and sinkers for foul ball tanks, I can barely make contact with anything not fast. Do any of you primarily sit off speed and just spit on the hard stuff until you get two strikes?

SDS

Every time I sit soft I end up chasing down.

SDS

Depending on the pitcher, yeah. After the first pitch, I'll sit Hoffman circle change or Maddux curve sometimes.

SDS

I don’t sit on anything cuz I look like an idiot at the plate when I do

SDS

Might be a competition between you and me who has more foul ball homers bcuz the game really efs with you on timing lol

When I keep my pci in the center and just react, I hit the off speed much better, but I don’t have a chance against the hard stuff. I almost wonder if it would still be better just to do it that way, and then only gear up for fastball when that’s what I’m guessing will be thrown.

When i am in RS and the connection is poor and 102 looks like 120, i have no choice but to look offspeed, because i can't hit FB.

Events and good regular connection games you have to look FB and adjust, unless your opponent is someone scared to throw heat, then it is sit back and feast.

I sit location only

Depends on the situation, the pitcher, the batter, the ballpark, and what each player had for a pre-game meal.

Lmao, this killed me. Same.

SDS

No, I just need a cup of coffee.

SDS

Mostly depends on the pitcher and the opponent's tendency. Sometimes it depends on the day though. Some days I can't hit off speed, others I can't hit the fastball.

SDS

Apparently I sit on nothing. I always find myself late on fastballs and early on off speed. It’s a curse.
