I picked up Newhouser yesterday. Used him in ranked season. Walked the first better, got a double play and was perfect after that. The difference between his pitch speed is very good. So I'd recommend him

Kluber wins

How is his wind-up? Is it annoyingly long or is it fine? His attributes look insanely good but I worry that I'll hate how long it takes the ball to get out of his hand.

Nice team man. I dunno. That Willie McCovey card sure would look nice for you at 1B. But I think i'd take Kluber over Fingers if that's the choice.

SDS

Kluber no doubt between those two. Rollie isn't that hard to hit imo and once you get to CS/WS Kluber is significantly harder to hit on HoF.

SDS

Do you play a lot of RS? What level are you?

I think Kluber is the pick, he dominates, great stamina, good pitches, and does well in the upper levels. I find it hard to use Chapman.. Rollie is great, but I think Kluber is the way to go.

It's definitely on the slower side, but I don't find it annoying. It's not Walter Johnson level luckily 🙂

I don't play a lot of Ranked Seasons, at all.
