Why Only Righty Pitchers Dropping SDS?

SDS

So we now have:

  1. Dustin May (97)
  2. Saberhagen (97)
  3. Greinke (97)
  4. Sixto Sanchez (97)

Not to mention:

  1. Felix from Inning Boss (96, Righty)

Not to mention:

  1. Dibble (95 Righty, CP)
  2. Rodney (92, Righty, CP)

Why is Jake McGee the only 95+ lefty reliever, and why is Cole Hamels the highest Lefty starter at 96 when we have 8 righties at 96+ (Howard, Patino, and Cy Young) and 4 at 97!?

tl;dr - Why do we now have 4 righty SP's at 97 overall but no lefties, along with an abundance of righties via inning bosses and relievers.

Follow up question, can anyone definitively rank these 4 in terms of value for their price?:

  1. Dustin May (97) 86K
  2. Saberhagen (97) 36K
  3. Greinke (97) 65K
  4. Sixto Sanchez (97) 68K

I have 300K stubs and want to add another arm. Think I might sell Felix, too hard to control....

No one is ever satisfied with anything. Just be glad content continues to drop. Mb shortly you’ll have an abundance of lefties. Smh, males becoming “Karen’s”

Just want something to complain about

SDS

Overalls don't mean a thing.

Lodolo, Chapman, Franco, and Wagner are legit. Hal is free and legit.

Also there's the obvious: more people are right handed, therefore more baseball players are right handed, therefore more pitchers are right handed.

My rotation and bullpen are pretty much split between RHP and LHP. There are enough good cards for each right now.

SDS

For your follow up question, Greinke May Sanchez Saberhagen. None of them are particularly good though:

Greinke’s windup is less deceptive, May doesn’t have enough speed differential on his crucial pitches. Obviously the 97 Sanchez might be better, but I never pitched well with his 86 and I rocked him whenever he came in - not enough variety in his pitches. Saberhagen might be the most interesting of all, but he doesn’t have a secondary fastball. He could be a fun addition to your team if you want to try him out, but the lack of a sinker or cutter (or even a 2 seamer) drags him down.

Sorry I'd prefer something better than an 8:1 ratio for handedness on 96+ rated pitchers. You seem to like to complain about others complaining.

Hypocrite?

Your not satisfied with content. That is kind of petty. They can’t please everyone at the same time but at least content continues. (Effort) If someone’s not satisfied with gameplay mechanics I can relate but when you put a thread like this above about content (margin of lefties and righties) when the content team has been delivering, you just sound like you want your dinner on a silver platter also. I’m not complaining at all I’m actually asking you to please not complain about content. Complain about gameplay mechanics and you’ll have my support. Good day Sir

You can keep it real by disagreeing with me without using the term ma’am but the point is if your not satisfied with the content so far then I don’t know what to tell ya. Some things are worth complaining about but something like content is just extreme. Their doing there jobs. Let’s keep the focus on gameplay mechanics bc that issue is a fact, content is an opinion

The game is a hot mess and gameplay mechanics are here to stay. They throw out these flashy cards and packs for people like you that googoo and Gaga all over them. The fact is that gameplay is not changing so why should we be so happy about the content? You can have the best cards in the world but will you still square up a pitch and it says good okay and it's a line out to the center fielder, how is that fun or rewarding?

How dare you! I’ll have you know that Karen purchased all of those cards for me.

SDS

I'm pretty sure we already have more diamond lefty relievers than last year

SDS

Do you want Kershaw back? Yeah, no thanks.

I will never understand the illogical massive disproportionate rh vs LH pitchers defenders on this board. OP you are a logical human being among a bunch of dumb twats

That's a little harsh.

LHP have always been outnumbered by RHP. It's actually illogical to complain about there being too many RHP.

You know why lefty’s gets paid so much - they are RARE - trade deadlines you hear we need to add another lefty bullpen pitcher - you never hear we need a right handed pitcher - what else do you want? We have SO much content compared to other years it’s been great, not everyone has the same lineups

What else do I want? You literally quoted a post of mine where I bolded: something better than an 8:1 ratio....

Top 10 Career WAR Pitchers: only 2 lefties. (that's an 8:2 ratio for those a little fuzzy on the math.)
Top 50 Career WAR pitchers: only 8 lefties (6.25:1)

It appears your argument is not with SDS, but with reality.

SDS

Yep, it is entirely the amount of LHP in real life, there are teams that do not even have 1 LHP in their rotation. I remember a stretch where the Reds didn't have a regular LH starter for several years in a row.

There just aren't many but a SS Kershaw will be out before long and then we'll have a whole new thing to bbiittcchh about.
