Do you have a personal goal in RTTS?

SDS

For example I want to see if I can join the 40/40 club on Legend.

I'm confident about the 40 homers. Think I'll need 80+ SB attempts to hit 40 stolen bases.

Using all the Diamond Cards I can to get an edge.

SDS

That's a good one - I did hit it in Legend. What are your Speed/Base Stealing ratings?

SDS

It's low I'm in my first year of minors.

Speed 72 (+15)
Stealing 39 (+12)

I'm 8 for 13 on SB attempts.

SDS

That's not bad - you'll pick up both of those attributes as you go along. I steal bases like crazy (well, I attempt a lot). With my Small-Ball guy, I'm successful about 85% of the time. With my more balanced guys, I attempt less but can still manage 75%. It's all about timing. Watch for when the pitcher takes a huge windup. That usually happens at least once an AB. Good luck!

SDS

I'm trying to hit .400, lead the league in runs scored, and steal a lot of bases

SDS

[censored] .400!!!! I thought my goal was going to be rough.

a barrier constructed to hold back water and raise its level, forming a reservoir used to generate electricity or as a water supply.
That was censored. Geez.

LOL! Potty mouth.

I’m just trying to break records and win hardware.

Well, I've never finished a career, so I've had that goal for a while. I don't like continuing from previous years, because I like the grind of making to the MLB each year. Tough for my though since I don't want to simulate appearances.

SDS

Update. Rookie I made the 30-30 club. 30 homers (homered the last game) and 32 stolen bases. I got to remember to hit watch when I get on base. That will give me more opportunities to steal. Coach gave me the "Green light". It's like I'm back in high school again.

Nice! 3 years in I made the 40-40 club and the announcers do a nice call-out on that.

It is tough. In the 2018 version, I played a single player through a full career. I didn't simulate any ABs (after a while I did simulate fielding). It took months. But... it felt like an accomplishment. I played with many teams, including the Red Sox, Yankees, Marlins, Nationals and A's. Won 2 World Series, back to back, with the Nationals. Ended with 802 HRs, played from age 18 to 39.

Also - I did break the all-time record for GIDP. They didn't call it out 😞

SDS

They are constantly showing a graphic about how many I've hit into this season. 12 at the All-Star break =\

I had to look up the record. Currently, it's Albert Pujols with 395. I hit into 420 during my career.

Just completer my second season. [censored] I can't believe I did that in 4 days. Crazy!!!

Made the 30-30 Club again. 30 homers and 45 SBs. I'm thinking 40 homers. is going to be tough; unless higher contact helps. Right now I'm at 76.

SDS

Man I'm getting closer. 37 homers and 35 SBs. Man working from home is dangerous. I'm finishing a season as a fielder every 4 days.

SDS

Trying to get to 99 overall so I can get a bat.

I agree - I'm doing the same... burning through seasons at a record pace.

What perks do you have activated? Also, what equipment do you have? Finally... what archetype?
