Yes, rare round

SDS

They changed Rodney's 2S to a sinker also. just as they did with the potm Wood

SDS

They were like, "everyone is complaining about sinkers and high sinkers more specifically. Let's troll everyone and turn every 2-seam FB into a sinker".

SDS

"We can't fix sinker cheese, let's just give every pitcher a sinker!"

SDS

Rodney has outlier too

He's the best base round by a mile, he'll be very serviceable on all levels with those pitches.

SDS

Lol yeah they gave Greinke, Rodney, and El Duque a sinker. Guess sinkers aren't getting a nerf anytime soon.

SDS

Wonder what the thought process at SDS is :

Customer service team : People are complaining about high sinkers being OP and glitchy.

Dev Team : Let's give sinkers to every pitcher we release and not fix it.

SDS

Got a rare and a standard went with Grienke and Rodney looking forward to using both.

Then I bought Kingman because why not.

SDS

I got a fever! And the only cure is more Sinkers!

SDS

He has a sinker and they changed his mechanics

I just noticed this, they changed his windup and his stretch lmao.

SDS

We need that gag 50mph eephus pitch he pulls out once in a blue moon.

SDS

Made it to world series last night, did it on a grand slam off a low Kluber sinker- so they can be hit... with that said, the every pitcher getting a sinker theme is a little silly.

SDS

He actually throws 8 different pitches. So giving him a sinker isn't that unbelievable..

SDS

Probably because 2 seamers don't work in this game

Fernando Rodney has thrown a sinker his entire career and greinke has thrown some sort of sinker/2-seamer the entire latter half of his career (largely due to his dip in velocity, his 2-seamer likely has some dip in it that previously was non-existent)

SDS

They should have done the opposite... turned all sinkers into 2-seamers and tweaked hitting from there. It's dumb when I don't want to use a pitcher without a sinker because that pitch is such an outlier.
