Sig Series Greg Maddux

SDS

Boy am I glad I locked in this card.

0-10 with a 19.74 era in 10 Event games.

Well worth the 90K.

SDS

He's pretty bad on AS, but he's better on HOF+

SDS

I do well with Maddux, just a matter of mixing up his stuff, painting the corners, and being unpredictable. That's pretty much any pitcher without a 96+ mph fastball though.

SDS

If you’re trying to spam high sinkers you’re going to get killed. You have to tunnel his pitches otherwise he’ll get smoked. Btw his cutter is the best in the game outside of the obvious (Rivera if it’s not obvious).

False again like pretty much every other statement you make. I didn't put too much time into it, but I already found a pitcher with a better cutter than Maddux after 20 seconds of searching. Madbum's cutter has 99 break and 97 control opposed to Maddux' 94 break and 98 control.

Is there anything you say that is actually correct? I honestly wonder.

SDS

I used Maddux for one inning when he came out and it was the worst inning I’ve ever pitched. Only game I quit out if In Ranked all year. And I did so down 10 runs in the first inning.

SDS

In HOF, I struggle against him. A lot of movement and his sinker looks a lot faster.

SDS

He's unusable on AS. But he's alright on HOF+.

SDS

He can be very hittable by mediocre players (ie. me) once you've seen his pitches for a couple innings.

Yep, you just gotta know how to pitch with him. I can't tell you how many people have flailed when throwing his curve ball in the dirt and then a high sinker. 39 games, 3.18 ERA, 76 K's, 27 wins

User error going on here. Sure he is no Orel, but he isnt trash. Like someone said, his sinker isnt the spam high type, pitch like he did, use horizontal movement to paint corners, change speeds, get your opponent so focuses on offspeed low you sneak 4 seam high right by.

I agree, I don't get lit up, even on all star using Maddux. You have to paint corners and mix it up. If you can light me up by hitting my cutters on the hands, fastballs on the edges and changeups breaking off the table followed by a 67 mph curveballs that float like turds in the swimming pool then good for you.

SDS

I bought him today and pitched his first game on HOF. Ended up with a CG, 4ER. Guy I played hit the first pitch he saw for a HR then didn’t score again until late in the game. Once I figured out his delivery timing, I was cruising. As others have said, he’s not like most of the other good SPs, you can’t overpower people, you have to mix pitches and paint the corners. I’ve played against guys who use him well and he can be a pain in the [censored] to face. Hopefully his next start is a repeat of today!

SDS

I've been using Maddux on the event to work on prestiging him. Its allowed me to figure out his pitches as well.

You have to start offspeed. Cutters to the outside corner and going away are hard for people to square up or make good contact.

Curveball that just touch the bottom of the zone to make sure opponents know you can hit it for a strike as well as obviously at their ankles. It moves alot and is hard to time up. Sprinkle it in with the circle change low as its about 8-10 mph faster.

Then use the occasional fastball. Even at 93-95 it feels way faster after alot offspeed and I've blown it past people more than a few times.

SDS

His sinker on hof looks faster than dibbles fastball I can’t figure out why

SDS

2nite special G.Mad v me AS inside cut and FB game over can confirm usable in AS TY Ggs.

No he’s better than Orel, and if you think Orel is better go ahead spam those high sinkers to me and see what happens with them. Smh at the most stupid garbage you read in these forums

I'm sensing some bubbling hostility here...lol.

SDS

I agree with OP can’t even throw strikes with him. And the circle change always floats to the middle of the plate for HR..
