I lost to Riley Reid and the Pornhub squad last night. Reggie took me deep 3 times, Riley didn't do much.

The big 3. I'll get 2 of them from the choice packs, probably will just buy the 3rd off the market. My hitting improved in 19, but was still awful, pitching is what keeps me in games.
Plus, how can I turn down a rotation of Maddux, Glavine and Smoltz? I grew up loving these guys.
I wish the mode had checkpoints or something. Like the 1st Inning is 70 stars, maybe after you beat the first boss you get 10 stars. Not repeatable, but at least you get something. Then you can keep trying. Beat the second boss and 20 stars. Again just a one time reward but you are getting the stars. Then if you win the final showdown, you get the last 40 stars.
Maybe a dumb idea, I don't know, and the number of stars might need to be tweaked. But the all or nothing is a bit frustrating.
I'm spending everything on Joe Pesci's Kickstarter: Joe Pesci Sings Abbey Road.
I really like Chipper, it is from his MVP season in 1999. Absolutely no bias saying that. Roberts and Victorino both look kinda good to me. Much better than the 2nd Inning, I could see all three guys starting for me. That probably speaks volumes about where my team is at.
The cards aren't beauties, but eh they're alright.

I paid 35k for Jimmy Rollins last night, not gonna pay 35k for Altuve tonight. Did manage to flip some cards and get Kemp back, so I got that going for me.
I'm debating this, I sold Kemp back when he was around 150k, with these packs tonight I wonder could we see him drop to around 90k? Anyone think that is possible?
It’s very possible. I wouldn’t be surprised if he hits around 80k
I think I'll watch the market, I have around 100k in stubs, thought about buying a pack but if I see Kemp drop to that price I think I'll just pick him back up. Thanks!
I have all 3, Ellsbury has been great so far online, very small sample size but 2 HR in 3 games I think, plus some other clutch hits. Just used Felix and Torre last night. First inning Felix gives up a bomb, I'm thinking "oh no", but that was it, 7 IP with 9 Ks 1 ER.
I was facing Kluber as usual, wasn't getting much going, just some singles and some hard outs. Top 9 my opponent brings in FOTF Snell. Hanley ripped a single, Victorino worked a 2 out walk and Torre launched one 420 feet to right-center field.
So small sample size but I like all 3. Sorry for the game history, but it felt good to comeback and win, This was on AS. My opponent was in the 700s and I'm at 694 now, so factor that in I guess.
I actually beat the 4th Inning Showdown last night myself! Went into Felix with the score 15-11, managed to take some pitches, get a few key hits, Yelich hit a 2 run bomb and IV Cano drove in the winning run. The infield was in, the runner from 3B went, Cano hit one up the middle but the 2B got it and threw home, but my guy was safe.
Was stunned, to say the least. I only had like 5 outs left, which is pathetic for only needing 5 runs.
Yeah, @halfbutt I was in the same spot, those pitches were coming in hot. I played it more as a test, I should have worked the count more, played smarter. But the individual missions don't seem so bad, I'm hoping tonight I can get to Felix with 10-12 runs, be patient and scrape together a victory.
Ellsbury and Mitch Haniger are beasts in this mode. I'm glad they have added some pitching missions, worth taking a gold SP/CP now.
I’m back for my second try with 10 runs. First two at bats, Jacoby and Chipper both work count to 2-2 and 3-2 then good/good right to a fielder. Here we go again. The pci seems bigger this time...
Good luck, hope you can smack him around and get the W!
