Completed it in an hour and a half. My only advice is to draft accordingly to who you will be facing next. Everyone worries about Pearson at the end, but they forget sometimes that you might face good lefties. My second to last was Sale and I cracked him pretty quickly with righties. Moments will be hell though I know it for sure.
I failed on Paxton for my 3rd challenge. Got so fed up I just did the first 2 and drafted LH batters and skipped to Pearson. Beat him with 12 outs left. It’s not that hard if you sit on a FB in your location (up). Otherwise just take the pitch he will walk a ton of your batters.
Agreed, the ones I had the most trouble with were all lefties (Paxton, Chapman and Sale). The Pearson card really isn't hard to hit in my opinion, I did it with mostly righties that just had good splits on both sides. So like OP said, def don't worry about Pearson too much.
