Why do I even bother?

I SERIOUSLY can't make this $h1t up!

I think it's time to take a break.

I struggled a lot to complete it, this is what I did as adviced by somebody in here. You can find it on my post 9th inning showdown

Drafted power guys, not pitching until my starting lineup was complete.

Perks-wise:

Blue: oppo taco for boost on pitches outside.

Gold: Exit velocity boost on normal swings in 0-0, 1-1, 2-2 counts

Gold: exit velocity boost on normal swings when a pitcher is below 50% energy.

Worked the countw using Directional hitting with X with the stick up.
Avoided swinging at pitches low in the zone unless I was protecting the plate.

BTW, I used this sequence:

High and in fastball twice
Slider down and away, a lil bit outside the zone to get them to chase. If the CPU was close to my pitch then I would throw one pitch way out of the strike zone (not pitchout)

My biggest problem with this Showdown is I can't seem to get my timing down against Vida Blue. Also, in the draft after each moment, they aren't giving me any good options against left-handed pitchers. If I don't get a couple hits in the first few batters, the rest of my lineup is trash and I can't get anything going against him.
