Which Pitchers are Kryptonite to You?

SDS

I tend to struggle with some pitchers more than I do others, and I'm curious to know which pitchers drive you crazy.

My top 3 (not in any particular order, just the 3 most annoying):

  • LS Joey Lucchesi
  • Chris Sale (his movement is so distracting!)
  • Clayton Kershaw

As for why I said Lucchesi, he just gets on my nerves when I face him in conquest. The guy has nasty breaking stuff (which is ridiculously slow), he's stingy with base hits, good with strikeouts, and he has a good pickoff move. A triple threat for a player like me.

That [censored] changeup kills me and as soon as I time that up I lose the fastball.

FotF Marichal
Same thing. His breaking pitches are nasty.

If Pham could pitch, it’d be him.

SDS

Michael Kopech for me. Facing him made me want to get him. 🙂

SDS

Hershiser and Rob Dibble are my mortal enemies.

SDS

Anyone with a fastball right now 😞

SDS

Kershaw. I couldn't even finish the 8th Inning Showdown entering the last game only down by 5. He embarrassed me off the field.

SDS

Orel, Leiter, and for some reason that Awards Scherzer.

I clearly struggle with the meta.

SDS

I can’t hit Kerry Wood for [censored] lmao

SDS

Any pitcher that throws gas

Only faced Juan a few times but that slider just falls off the table, and he has a 72mph change. No thanks.

That's interesting, it seems like people can't touch him or he gets rocked. I've experienced both, but I'm on all star at the moment so.

I've Got sale and Feller, I got them when they were way cheaper. I think there is some value now to adding another lefty as lots of guys are running Trout and Tatis a long with some other lefty's like Ruth... A good right handed cutter and sinker and/or a good slider in a lefty seems like a must at this point

SDS

Lucas Giolito - Kerry wood - Tom Seaver

SDS

Hal Newhouser. I hate him so.

SDS

Blake Snell earlier in the game cycle

Glad people no longer use him

SDS

Dibble can kiss my a$$.

SDS

Most starters I can start to hit at least by the second time through the order, most relievers I start to pick up after by the third at bat, but Billy Wagner destroys me consistently, all the way back throughout '19.

SDS
  1. Newhouse (owns me)
  2. Sale (hate him)
  3. Chapman (love using him hate facing him)

All lefties

SDS

Someone could put that silver Jesse Biddle out there against me & throw a perfect game.

Agreed. I can't hit over 98 unless I am lucky. 🙂
I start swinging early and then start hitting them, but then the pitcher realizes this, and starts throwing off-speed. lol
