Dear Ernie

Dear Ernie,

Let me start by saying its not you its me. I’m sincere when I say that, I really am. I just feel like we are going different places.

Im not a good hitter, Im just not. Its nothing against you, Im a 240 hitter but with you I hit .200. I have tried it all with you, facing lefties and righties but just couldn’t get you down. But a measly 5 homers in nearly 200 ab’s is just not where I saw us going.

You have to know I am always there to defend you as one of the all time greats and to me you will always be my favorite Cub..

Mr.Cub...bye for now, I may come back to you later on but right now, I just need to experiment with something different.

Love you always Mr.Sunshine we will “play two” In the future, I know it.

SDS

That's some funny sh*&

SDS

Im glad my pain can bring you happiness 🙂

Same experience with Banks. Bought and sold him 3 times trying to make it work, but sometimes you have to let go. 200 ABs is plenty buddy, you gave him an honest shot!

Great post possum. I want my favorite player to do well but just cant execute. Will go back to rollins I guess haha

SDS

banks was on my list of cards to still get since i could never draw him out of the packs...always lower tier. but maybe i wont worry about him

SDS

That’s the way I feel about Tatis.

I’m a decent player in ranked. Bat .281 in 150 ranked games and usually clean up in events. All my hitters are over .300 or even .400.

With that being said, I’m batting .132 with Tatis Jr.. 😂

Banks is like .385 with 40 HRs for me.

Tatis is like 6 hits out of 40 at bats or something. That’s a small sample, but so dreadful I don’t think I can use him anymore.

SDS

Youre a dog at this game so you arent getting much sympathy from me 😉

Dont think i could get 40 homers with banks if you gave me a team full of ernie banks for the rest of this year.

SDS

...

Sincerely,
Bert

I’ve been struggling with Tatis a bit too, but I am only a few runs from getting him prestiged so I hope with the fresh start with the new card I’ll be better. Don’t want to part with that defense and speed especially since I know his offensive potential is huge if I can figure him out.

SDS

Rollins is still the best.

SDS

My problem is I am an offline player that likes to run theme teams. My Legends team is pretty much guys that played before 1980ish and that leaves me little to no options at SS. I suck with Ernie so I'm currently running that lower diamond Mike Schmidt that has a SS Secondary. Here's hoping that Honus arrives today!

That’s exactly how I feel. Hoping if I do tough it out with him, I somehow start hitting with his prestige better.

Cheers then .. 😂. Every at bat with him it’s like “now he’s going to start hitting”.. then I hit a foul ball that’s an inch from being fair and after that, end up hitting a weak grounder or lazy fly ball.

I’m pressing with him so bad for some reason.

A lot of people throw Banks sliders for some reason. Hold your pci down a little before the pitch and sit on a slider. Wait till you get one. If you don’t, keep trying. Be out in front a little and just underneath it.

My only advice with Banks. I’ve hit a lot of HRs with him off of the same slider.

My very first hit with him in RS was a HR. I thought, "Yes, I've found my new SS". Been a struggle ever since...

Basically the same here. At least we’re not alone.

Well I picked up horsby in ernies absence and he has two homers in two games. Almost half to ernies hr numbers with 180+ fewer abs
