Holy $&@!

Normally I’m not a hard critic of the game early on in the cycle before they work out the kinks, but the last RS I played holy $&@! was it infuriating. I had the 99 Kluber pitching and he was dominating as per usual, but come around the six the inning my opponent who had struck out eight times already turned into a foul ball and check swing machine. I couldn’t strike him out and he got four brutal hits that inning including one that was very early on a cutter in the left hand batters box that I don’t know how he physically made contact with. Then as soon as Kluber starts to lose confidence my pitches start floating. Slurve to Gallo down in with perfect input ends being an absolute floater that gets destroyed for a three run bomb. I wasn’t happy but I knew I got Degrom out of the game and I was only down one, so it could be overcome. Then a weak grounder up the middle that was very early on a cutter away and then the cutter in the other batters box that he pulls to left for a single and here comes Giambi. I decided to leave Kluber in (not my best decision) because he was coming up the next inning. My opponent precedes to foul off four pitches after getting him to two strikes and then a perfect input high and away sinker ends up over the middle and in the stands, at which point I decided I’d had enough of the show for one day.

Sorry for the rant, but I needed to vent after that disgrace. And yes I do know the foul balls aren’t as bad as last year and that many other things in this game need fixing (pitching), but this wasn’t right.

That's what you get for throwing high sinkers lol

I feel for you, but after six innings, you’re on borrowed time with your SP.

If you’re throwing high sinkers then I have no sympathy for you lol.

Did you read the rest of the post? What’s your excuse for all the bs he went through?

Sorry man, you fell victim to the little Billy curse. Nothing you can do when the game wants the other guy to win.

Awesome job SDS...chalk up another W for Billy!!!!!!

I know that and I usually have a quick hook but Kluber was at about 60 pitches at that point because my opponent wasn’t at all patient.

You may not like them, but they sure are effective. I try not to spam them, but if you mix them in here and there it almost always catches an opponent off guard.

I remember this time last year no one could touch Kershaw because of the sinker. It made him the best pitcher in the game all year.

Yep pitching is not what it should be in this game, It should be user input not random down the middle. If pitchers have confidence the hitters should to., Vision is a lost cause on this game. Pitching to the black ends up in walks. My last game I was up 2-0 in the 8th, A weak single. a walk, opponent pitch hits brings in Soto I throw high out of the zone and the pitch goes in the zone he crushes a 3 run HR to take the lead. I had just changed pitchers. The random pitches in zone is garbage. I dash boarded the game. . If the pitch not going where i put no user input, my opponent does not deserve the HR. That's my take on it.

This is how I know you don’t know what you’re talking about. A high and away sinker on the black is one of the most effective pitches in the game. This isn’t real life baseball.

It is not about the effectiveness it is about only getting about 10 percent or lower called strikes on the black. How many times do I have to pitch to a location where the ball suppose to go with a pitcher that is fresh out of the pen and the balls ends up down the middle how is that user input. It controlled by the randomness of this game not user input like hitting is.
