Man, struggle bus population me right now.

SDS

I'm late on fastballs, early on offspeed. Vision isn't an issue, I'm still taking my walks. Case in point, the last game I walked 7 times, and yet scored 0 runs because I can't square up a pitch.

Might take a bit of a break, try and come back fresh, gotta try something to break this sorry excuse for hitting lol.

SDS

I feel personally attacked. This is me right now.

Also, I drive a bus for a living, hop on. It'll be a party

SDS

Yup add me to the list of stuggling as well, even CPU pitching seems faster latley, i'm either way to early on offspeed stuff or off by a mile on fastballs.

SDS

I'll add money to the bus fare, because I'm in the same boat as all of you.

SDS

This game can be cruel. Just when you think you have figured hitting out and are feeling good about yourself, this happens and you can’t dig out if that hole die the life of you.

Currently struggling big time, which sucks as I am pushing that RS 800 make again and likely won’t make it (hit 797-798 last 4 seasons and can never cross the line )

SDS

I couldn't hit water if I fell out of a boat most of the time.

SDS

Yeah, me too I am struggling. S
It's been about a week. I mean I play usually at veteran or all star and this past week I can't hit on rookie at all. Same thing, late on 94 mph fastballs and early on change ups. Even my perfect hits are doing line outs or hit directly to the player on the ground for easy outs. I was doing ruth allstar and was up 2 -0 and had two out and the cpu hits a flyball to the outfield and for the first time ever my outfield literally dropped the catch...causing 2 runs to score. I was like what the f. Then next batter up, Tebow hits a hr...mr. no chance he plays in mlb for more than 50 games tebow....I literally got my two stars for the 8th inning and shut her down last night. I attempted showdown and couldn't even get the first 2 done....solid contact on everything going straight to outs...I was like nope....not dealing with this tonight...

SDS

I have had some issues with timing lately too. I think mine is connection related though. I seem to to be playing people with really bad connections.
I faced a guy using kluber last night. I have always done well against kulber. I just sit on his slurve. The only person I could seem to hit with was cobb.

SDS

I find myself being late on fastballs, too. Especially against pitchers with a high velocity rating. It feels as though if I do get a hit on a fastball, it's out of pure, dumb luck.

If my timing does happen to be good/perfect or just early/just late, I'll get lineouts and flyouts seemingly at random. And this has even been happening with Babe Ruth! On Rookie! At Coors! Vs CPU! I don't understand this.

SDS

I'm so frustrated, I have scored 3 runs in my last 3 ranked games, I literally cannot square up a ball, my pci is -censored- and I don't know how to fix it.

Most of my players still have great averages from when I could play well, but the newer ones show how bad I am

Tatis has struck out in 11 of 26 at-bats for a 42% strikeout rate.

SDS

Well, like I said I am sitting right behind you.

Played two RS games today as I again try to finally hit the 800 Championship series level. 2-1 win in game 1 ( all runs scored in first inning for both teams), 3-1 loss in the 2nd ( outhit hit and had 14K’s, but he hit two homers to my zero).

So frustrating.

SDS

Is this some weird internet lingo the kids are using? Is “struggle bus” being used as a verb?

F

Seriously though, slumps happen. Take a few days off. It helps me.

SDS

It sounds easier than it is but just don’t think and instead, react. See ball hit ball. Sure, you pay attention to tendencies and anticipate sometimes but just move stick, hit ball.

SDS

@janoosh said in Man, struggle bus population me right now.:

So simple but so hard to really apply, but 100% the answer - unless struggles are latency induced and you have one of those glitch games, then just pray cause your funkt

SDS

Directional hitting should clear this up
