Stop getting mad at people who watch their homeruns

SDS

I see alot of bashing on here directed towards people that watch their homeruns & I don’t know why people take it as being disrespectful. Have you ever seen Degrom, Cole or Sale at a post game press conference call out ESPN for replaying a homer they gave up during their start?....When you watch a game on tv and a player hits a mammoth homer don’t you look forward to seeing it in a slow mo replay?.....Look, If I hit an absolute moonshot or if my player does a sweet bat flip I replay it and save it to share with my friends on twitter. I’m not trying to disrespect you AT ALL. I’m just enjoying my accomplishment & sharing it with my friends. Don’t be so sensitive, I’m not dissing you or disrespecting you. Relax boys, Don’t take everything so personal.

Pitchers do tend to get upset if you watch your homerun from the batter's box. I think that's a better analogy than the one you used. But more on topic, I don't get upset at all when people want to watch their homerun. But better believe it motivates me and I will replay each and every one from that moment forward.

That’s a fair argument. Never thought of it that way.

Regardless of your intentions, it appears as though you’re just trying to show up your opponent whenever you watch a replay.

It’s rubbing salt in an open wound. The guy is probably already pissed that he gave up a homerun and just wants to move on to the next batter, but you’re basically just pausing the game to force them to watch it again.

It’s The Show’s equivalent to batflipping or watching a homerun from the batter’s box.

And no, it doesn’t bother me. Just showing how/why it would bother a lot of people.

I guess I just never thought of it this way. It just has never occurred to me when my opponent does this, Just always assume they’re doing the same as me is all.

I envy your innocence.

My big issue is when you replay a home run on a pitch down the middle when I very much didnt put it there like if you have perfect perfect on a pitch at or near the black then yeah go ahead I applaud you but replaying down the middle you just look stupid

I agree with this. I actually spotted a backdoor slider on the down and in corner to my opponent yesterday and it was pinpoint perfect, I was sure it would be a K. Instead, he blasted it for a moonshot and I took the honors and I replayed it for him, that was a great hit.

No, stupid would be getting a pitch down the middle and jamming your PCI down and not hitting a HR.

Slaughtering a pitch down the middle 465' then having you want Reggie Jackson pimp that HR with his boss bat flip? Yup every time. You can watch your mistake go 465' 2 more times

Yup. Exactly why you should do it.

If your opponent is that mentally weak... That fragile... Then yeah, hit L2 every time. The guy will end up beating himself.

not always my mistake since I use meter and magically perfect releases with a fat meter go down the middle but sure go right ahead and look like a tool

Meter?? What's next? Complaining your perfect timing on directional didn't get a hit? 😂😂😂😂

How do you save the clip? Would like to start saving them to watch back! Thank you

SDS

I look at it the same way I look at hitters IRL. there is a time or place. You are down by 3 runs and hit a solo? You are up by 3 runs already, don't pimp it, just run. You are down by 1 and hit a go-ahead homer. or up by 1 and hit a moon shot to take a lead pimp the [censored] out of that bad boy. It's a game. and I you don't care enough about that to be pumped, that's on you. I would take Bautista's nasty bat flip against Texas (big moment in the play offs) vs any time JD Drew hit a homer. That man could strike out with the bases loaded to lose the worldseries, or hit that walk off homer and have the same reaction. It's a game have fun with it!

and no one ever seems to have a problem with a pitcher screaming his lungs out and pumping his fists when he get s big strike out...same boat.

Or you could act like you have hit a HR before in an online video game. It is a complete waste of time. Does motivate me to try to bury you and hit a dozen hr's and watch them all.

SDS

Getting mad about anything in a video game is just silly. That being said, if you are still watching your replays I just assume you don't hit many. The novelty of it has worn off for most of us by now....

SDS

My only time I get upset is when it's a fence scraping home run. No reason to watch or replay this. You hit a no doubt grand slam with a player that has a sick bat flip then be my guess I want to see that as well

This right here. Lol nothing better than a guy watching 2 solo HRs in the first few innings and then being able to watch your own when you take the lead from a 3 run Dinger in the 8th

SDS

I only do it on occasion for the really long ones just to see how far they were hit. I don't even let it play out. Then I'll also do it if the other guy is being a douche (taking too long between pitches, constantly going to the quick menu/pause menu, or throwing at me because he's losing).

SDS

I'm far more annoyed by the player that keeps pausing the game checking the pitch history. If you don't have enough brain cells to remember the pitches that you or I threw don't subject me to you researching your senior thesis before every at bat.
