Don’t touch hitting. Tweak Pitching.

SDS

I see a lot of posts about how there are too many home runs and I’ve seen some crazy scores posted on twitter and what not. I don’t want them to touch hitting bc then we end up with a game like last year all over again.

I think right now the real issue lies in pitching and not just the pitch speeds although maybe they could use a slight boost but I’m not on HOF yet so I want to see how the game plays in RS up there. I think the real problem is control. It seems like every time I miss a spot the ball goes right down the middle. I understand you aren’t going to hit your spot all the time but leaving pitches down the middle every time I miss is what I think is leading to these insane scores. I think they need start with a tweak to control and see what happens from there. There’s also not a ton of dominate pitchers in the game yet.

Let’s not start yelling about everything so they patch the game to [censored]. Right now hitting feels good and rewarding let’s not ruin that.

Pitching with Luis Castillo will illustrate exactly why control needs to be tweaked.

I used Syndergaard last night....ho boy. Perfect releases and still misses by the width of the strike zone. It was awful.

Pitch speeds are fine. Control needs work.

I’ve only played a few games online. The real issue is the lack of pitchers with high per nines. I have Gallo who is already 100+ power going against 65 hr/9.

In two months we’ll be complying about perfect perfect lineouts.

Agree 100%. Few more thoughts :

IMO, the hitting is fine aside from too many foul tips that should result in more swings and misses. However, that's been the case for the last 3 years so I don't expect a fix.

What needs to be fixed is the pitching control and the defense. Trying to locate with relievers in BR is almost impossible with the stamina being so low. That results in frequent 15+ runs BR games.

Regarding defense.... the outfielders have no urgency and lolligag to balls all the time. Infield seems fine but the OF are out for a Sunday stroll and do not seem to care there is a guy on 2nd who is gonna try and score

Yea I’ve had this issues with balls dropping in front of my outfielders they slow jog to balls when I theres a play at the plate. They don’t have any situational awareness. It’s cost me a couple runs but I think that’s something that will be fixed soon.

Yea exactly that’s why I don’t want them touching hitting right now. Once they bring out those 99 pitchers I think hitting will be in a balanced place.

The relievers in BR need more stamina I can bring out a fresh reliever and he’s gassed after one batter and can’t find the strike zone. Idk why they even reduce stamina on relievers it doesn’t make much since.
