I know I'm not great, but it took me 27 to beat the Yankees on All Star 2-0. Never have I hit so many warning track flyouts before. Molitor finally got the game winning RBI.
At least I finally got Belli out of it!
FYI, I visited the University of Pittsburgh last week with my son. One of their class buildings was built on the site of Forbes Field. They kept home plate in its original location and it's displayed under glass, pretty cool.
Saw Trammell in the '84 World Series Game 4 at the old Tiger Stadium. The most fun I've ever had at a baseball game. Only paid $10 face for a bleacher seat, miss the good old days...
As long as they aren't "Future Hall of Famers" and be 99+ versions of guys who are still in the MiLB...
Turn off messages. Makes the game much more tolerable...
I'm mediocre and played a WS guy who quit after he went out 1-2-3 in the top of the first. Not sure if he was playing for Prestige but I was happy for the free Event win.
Outside that I have noticed few newbies seem to be playing Events. Every game is against a 98 OVR God squad .
Was really hoping for a 99 lefty CP to replace 97 Hendriks in the pen. Guess we'll never be able to have an all 99 pen..
SS Banks, over 100 in all the main batting categories..
This will be better than anything on ESPN 2 tonight..
Have to say Gagne is definitely worth the Stubs. Best reliever in my pen, better than all the 99's..
For those who have both, which do you prefer in CF?
I still need to obtain six of the seven "gatekeeper" LS cards. I am trying to figure out whether it's better to go after those six cards, or put the stubs towards all the Trout collection cards ..
The team OVR cap makes player selection a bit tricky. I'm going with a bench full of silvers and four 67 rated pitchers to stay under...
Remember the old days of MLB 16 when everyone played Extra Innings vs the Yetis ( a team made up of Common players playing out of position)? It was tedious, but you could quickly build up stats offline. They had to ban Extra Innings games from counting towards missions ..
I'm ok with this event. Lost the first game 2-1, won the next two by a run. Seems like good practice for RS. Good change of pace from 10-8 slugfestsat Shippett..
I guess I may play a bronze or silver (whatever is eligible) at Short and always pinch hit for him in the eight-hole..I just hope they're still three inning games.. (Can't afford Zobrist)
If the next event is Signature and Prime players, who will be eligible to play Shortstop (at least as a secondary position)?
Did you have to spend any real money $ to obtain all the stubs needed for these packs, or were you able to earn them within the game?
Yup, on a 3rd strike passed ball. Torre just stood there with the ball in his hand for a second, long enough for Bellinto be safe at first.
