Does SDS know contact hitters aren’t good?

SDS

Even if you square it up it’s just an easy out wherever. I might just buy Soria and Mathewson and call it an event.

SDS

Yeah they are just not effective, apparently you can’t get the ball to jump off the bat with under 65 power, thanks a lot sds. Weak grounders and pop flys galore. So fun and the rewards are to die for, I just don’t understand how it can be this bad, and for a month..... honus has to come at the end of this

SDS

Obviously you need to use 0 with contact hitters..

SDS

I like this event. Takes the pressure off of trying make a perfect pitch every time and puts the focus more on managing rather than trying to out slug the other guy. Gotta shift your defense for certain guys. Know when to pitch out. Slide step. Throw a fastball. Bunt. Steal. Hit and run. Oh it’s so much better than just trying to hit nukes. Don’t get me wrong hitting bombs is great and all but hasn’t everyone hit twice as many as Bonds did in his career by now?

SDS

Just using it to Prestige Kershaw and Johnson. Idk if either actually makes my rotation but its the best oppurtunity to do it.

SDS

Lol, its a product of the event more than anything. You wanna talk contact hitters being useless load up MLB the Show 18.

SDS

LOL man I had to say something on this... Contact hitters are not useless. Lou Brock hits mid .400s for me in over 400 AB.

He’s got power over 70 against both handed pitching though. Give me a useful contact hitter with less then 60 power. There’s practically none if you don’t bunt cheese.

SDS

Vidal Brujan does have 65 I believe against righties, but 55 against lefties. I've hit leadoff HR with him each side of the plate in my last two games and a HR in 3 of my last 4 games with him.

SDS

I don’t want to hop on the show to bunt and hit infield singles. Gimme the long ball baby

SDS

So I guess a lot of people prefer slow-pitch softball? If you can hit bombs, you should be able to slap some singles, hit and run, and square up for some doubles in this event.

SDS

Did you play 18 ??? Contact hitters are very good since last year.

SDS

Stop trying to hit home runs with them. I'm hitting almost 400 with Kieth Hernandez and I'm a terrible hitter.

SDS

When I first started playing DD earlier this year, I used the 95 Madrigal as my 2B and lead off hitter. He actually hit a good amount of HRs for a guy with little power.

Man I use Ozzie as my main SS and he’s a single and doubles machine. Also had an inside the pasta homer

SDS

Inside the pasta , is that the new cooking show on vh1

SDS

Funny because I love this event. I’ve hit 4 homeruns since it started yesterday. Yes there are a lot of fly outs but hey I’m enjoying the hell out of it. I’m using it to prestige pitchers

Exactly. Chicks DO NOT dig the bunt or the bloop single or the strikeout. We all know they dig the longball.
