People who sit off speed.....

SDS

I take my hat off to you all! I’m completely amazed at how many people can’t hit a fastball. Maybe I’m that way cuz the fastball is just about the only pitch I can hit?! Once my opponent figures out that I crush fastballs, which usually only takes about two innings, that’s it the game is over.

SDS

It varies on what pitch on sit on vs certain pitchers and if I can hit it or not. It also varies on what my opponent is throwing. If he seems to be keeping the ball down ill adjust what I'm looking for.

I always look Slurve/Cutter vs Kluber and lay off the rest unless its center cut.

You fastball guys kill me. Typically you flail at every offspeed and somehow foul it off. You’ll get a few early HR swings and then are on the fastball if I miss my spot.

Being early is such a huge advantage

Its alot more about patterns, if I know a guy loves to throw a Curveball in 90% of 0-1 counts I'll wait and sit on it cause I almost certainly know it's coming

Bro I have to sit off speed. I cant hit fastballs to save my life. Just cant pick it up fast enough. Its so disheartening. Im constantly late. Well on HOF difficultly anyway. Im usually ok on Allstar but still some issues

Early timing is far too rewarding in this game. Sometimes i feel like it’s rewarded more than good

This past week I’ve been way too early on everything. Every fastball middle/up in the zone I just hit 120mph at the family sitting behind the third base dugout

I played someone yesterday and I quickly figured out if I threw anything not a 4-seam fastball - change-up, slider, curve, even sinker to an extent - they hit a no-doubt HR. But high fastballs - even 3 feet above the zone fastballs - were his kryptonite.
