Just beat showdown extreme!

SDS

Found it fairly easily. 5/6 bosses are righties. Second to last is Chris Sale on HOF (he’s always been my nemesis, funky release). Pearson spams 102 fb so practice vs chapman on legend in bp before final boss to help with timing! Can’t wait to try yelich

SDS

There are a host of different bosses.
For instance, I have Feller instead of Sale.
I’m kind of paralyzed already to continue, My happy place at the moment is just knowing I have the chance to get through this with little agitation and frustration lol

Feller gave it to me. I only managed 1 hit and he struck me out 12 times out of the 14 outs lol

Picked up Juan Pierre and Buxton specifically for these hall of fame ones to try to lay down bunts and steal a couple bases but apparently bunts arent allowed I just kept fouling them off.

SDS

Do you have to pay stubs to attempt it?

It cost 1000 stubs but I believe you make it back after first boss which is on veteran and you only score 2 runs

Oh I did it know that. I totally would of rather faced bob than sale. It didn’t help that I also had 8 lefties in my lineup preparing for Pearson. It came down to my second to let out and I hit a 3 run bomb with castellanos to win 4-2. I’m glad I did because I got use prestige tatis for Pearson. I figured it would take me a day or two hours o pass

SDS

I just wish they would give useful perks. Don’t need any pitching perks... that irked me

SDS

Anybody got a guide for these. Maybe the pitchers, situations?

I started with Leiter and then it went McKay and now I’m up against Paxton.

First two for me were on veteran. The first one is score three before 10 outs. The second one was score 7 before 20 outs. You start with your leadoff guy on second and your No. 2 guy at the plate.

Starting the third and it’s All-Star and you need to score 3 before 12 outs.

My strategy from day 1, but they nerfed bunting it seems.

Just like any other Showdown. The best strategy is to cross your fingers and hope the RNG doesn't take away too many hits

Not sure if anyone leaves baserunning to the CPU I just tried out for the first time it's a MASSIVE NO-NO almost lost the final because any time I got on they were stealing and got caught. I only needed 1 and had 6 outs left I think next 3 who hit singles ran thankfully hit HR with Robert.

I've had assisted baserunning off all year ever since I got killed in earlier Showdowns. Player-team baserunners are way to aggressive in Showdown.

SDS

I’m on my 4th boss and three lefties.... ugh

Luzardo, Paxton and Chapman

SDS

I finished it first time. I actually couldn't believe it. The only one that gave me trouble was Feller, who was my opponent in the step before Pearson. Feller had me down to my final out before Trey Mancini LS hit a two-run jack to win it. I was pumped. I beat Pearson pretty easy. He's wild and will walk guys if you can hold off the heat and be patient.

The pitchers I ended up facing were Leiter, McKay, Paxton, Smoltz (closer edition, so you can work his pitch count), Feller and Pearson. I am guessing that no matter the pitcher you face, the situation stays the same for each step regarding difficulty, runs behind, etc.

I did have a couple where I had a runner on to start (and I think they tell you in the description before you enter the game). It was always the leadoff guy on second and then the No. 2 hitter was up. In those case (I didn't do this, but you can). Put your pitcher as your leadoff batter and then start your lineup from there. You can then pinch-run for the pitcher who is on second and pinch-hit, if wanted, when that spot comes to the plate. And, as always with showdowns, positions don't matter. You don't play defense. Put your best hitters out there regardless of position.

SDS

Good Luck! Took that MFer Pearson to 190 pitches on the final! No energy with 12 outs remaing and only down 3 runs... and he finished it off with all the confidence in the world and never lost 1 mph speed.

Yeah I just faced Hoffman, 100 pitches and he was dotting with zero energy and no confidence. Honestly I know it’s extreme but [censored] if they have zero confidence then they shouldn’t be able to throw a strike

Hoffman was batting practice for me. Had my 9 runs with still 18 outs to go

SDS

I want the original lineup where I had Jay Buhner and Ryan Klesko...I skipped to the final showdown by mistake and had to start over. The rounds are easy AF until you get to the last two showdown where it must be on HOF or Legend. I can't touch Bob Feller! Only went through 2 controllers, but now I have the third. And you know what they say...third time is fkn charm lmao.
