Perfect... 98 out of the pitchers hand... 93 off the bat...

Wow this game is so broken

Now that’s irritating. From a physics standpoint, that makes zero sense. That needs to be reported/shown to SDS

I get that’s Colin Moran but no MLB pro will perfectly square up a ball and have it go slower than it came in

I had 1 with ketel marte during an event game and another with duke snider in the same game lol

That’s showdown for ya lol

People are definitely gonna bash me for this but I mean it kinda makes scenes from the way the game plays though. You hit a perfect flyball with a low power bad fly ball hitter. I’m sure if you hit a perfect liner or perfect grounder the velo would’ve been a lot higher

The game is nowhere near "broken". There are definitely some aspects of it that need work though. Just like any other game. But I think we are over using that word. If this game is "broken" then most games out there are straight trash.

the 51 power against RHP if I read it right may have something to do with it. swinging a wet noodle

That is something that 100% should be fixed. Regardless of the power stat, perfect perfect should always have equal or greater exit velo.

I had this happen to me in RS. Not as bad but 100mph in, Perfect-Perfect, 98MPH out. And this bottom 9th 2 outs in a tie game. Ball died in CF and I lost in extra innings.

exactly! doesn't mean we are asking for perfect/perfect flies to always be HR for everyone, just that the physics some what follow real life realistic physics.

[censored] that sucks. I had 2 perfect flyballs yesterday, one with Yelich on Taylor rodgers(83 power vs L) and Eloy Jimenez on Jose Berrios (88 power vs R) both barely made it to the track. March to October in the ALCS(HOF) and the ladder in a showdown run, 1st boss(probably rookie/vet? Lol)

So even a perfect perfect bunt should have higher exit velo? The power or strength of a hitter of course should matter. If a 4 year old accidentally hit a ball with perfect timing and contact then the exit velo should be over 100 mph? You and others here obviously know zero about physics. Think of a wall being the batter. A pitcher throws the ball at the wall and the wall (with no power of its own) puts and equal and opposite force on the ball so the ball will rebound, but it isn't going anywhere and certainly not at a rate higher than the pitch was. The wall will absorb most of the balls energy and it will just bounce off. Perfect timing and perfect contact have nothing to do with how much power is put into a swing. It still takes a power from the batter to drive the ball at a speed higher than the pitch comes in. What you are suggesting is that no swing is even needed as long as there is perfect contact and perfect timing.

All this made you sound dumb as hell. These are professional MLB players. They don’t swing the bat like a 4yr old. No MLB player will ever perfectly square up a ball and have negative velocity

There isn't a baseball player alive that hasn't had more exit velo than the pitch when barrelling up a ball, even Dee Gordon. Physics would tell you it always goes out faster. ijs. Not complaining at all, just stating a fact. I hit a good/squared up with Gallo to right center in the event and it hit the top of the wall. IRL that goes about 475. I just smiled.

L.M.A.O.

I can’t believe this is your justification for why the hitting engine is the way it is. Comparing big league hitters to toddlers and brick walls is completely irrational and irrelevant.

So are you dumb or just stupid?

How about an explanation instead of just hurling insults? That’s what this fellow has gone to the effort of doing. Science is about asking questions of the non-rhetoric kind.

Remember all of those flat-earthers who shut down the questions about the world possibly being round? We all laugh at them, not the ones who theorised.

Did you read what he posted at all?

It is a shame I am refraining from complaining.
