Finest Bauer

SDS

I don’t know if there is a thread about his card or not. Anyway, have any of you used him already? I noticed he doesn’t have a changeup.

If you used him, how did he do for you?

SDS

Seems a bit underwhelming so far but I only have a few innings pitched with him so far. Wish they wouldve dropped the knuckle curve since he has a slider already and kept the change.

I do find myself pretty reliant on change ups as an out pitch so TA4 isn't great for me.

SDS

Got destroyed using him. I sold the card immediately!

SDS

I tried him. Didn't like him. Sold him and bought finest Darvish. Alot cheaper, and better overall card IMO. I've had success with that Darvish card.

I faced Darvish and found it easier to hit than his prime card. I’m unsure, maybe I’ll try him

SDS

I wonder what difficulties you guys playing on, haven’t tried Bauer yet but I want to know is he not usable in HOF.

I played All Star. That might be the reason I got lit up.

SDS

Faced him on legend, cutter/curve tons of break, otherwise sinker seemed flat, wasn't difficult at all to hit, no changeup made that even more possible. Overall takeaway: Not impressed

SDS

Thanks for the heads up. I was going to exchange my way to his card. I'll take him on the Mets, though in real life.

SDS

I didn’t like Darvish but really liked Bauer as his slider is nasty. ( I don’t like the 12-6 as the only real off speed)

SDS

I used Baur on HOF and he’s legit my top 3 pitcher right now.. I liked him... buuuut I faced him a crushed him so I think it depends on how you use him... darvish to me is trash I got rage quits both time I played him lol

SDS

I faced him once last night. Obviously first time seeing him I struck out 10 times but scored 4 runs two via HR

SDS

Liking him so far. Sinker and Cutter compliment each other quite well.

I mentioned something about Bauer's cutter in the Road To The Show section a few months back. Someone was asking a question about a pitch to add on their RTTS player.

I noted that I had just used Bauer (live series) with the Reds in a random Play Now game online, and there was something interesting about Bauer's cutter that I noticed. The velocity on Bauer's cutter was bottoming out at 83 mph. That's really slow for a cutter. I began thinking that Bauer's cutter could be used as an "inverted change up", of sorts, a change up with glove side movement, basically.

Not many pitchers have a cutter that slow, and I think Bauer's Finest card lists his cutter velocity in the low to mid 80s.

SDS

His finest sucked in 19 or 18 i forget ... Id assume he's easy to pick up still

SDS

Slider/cutter tunnel gets a lot of roll over ground balls. You need to use him around the cutter for sure.

SDS

Bauer is better then darvish. It sucks as a cubs fan I was happy to see the darvish card. But again on allstar almost any card gets hit hard

Those /9s will always play on HOF
