I just picked up my 300th win

Man what a grind 300 was my number this year and thanks to social distancing I was able to achieve it way earlier than I thought! RS record 300-307 highest rating 768 ( Currently 678 - I will make CS before this season is over. What are your goals heading into the online play? And by the way keep pitching Sheffield inside, I have figured it out and have been blasting balls - as always I hope you all have a great day

There’s other game modes... and other games... and other things that you could be doing instead...

Completely unnecessary throwaway comment. This is the community board for the game he's talking about.

YOU could be doing other things instead too.

My goals every year are to knock out collections without spending real money, make WS and go 12-0 in BR. This year I added that I wanted to prestige Mickey Mantle. I completed all this a little while ago and now I'm just not motivated to play.
I've actually been doing a replay of Red Dead Redemption 2 which I am enjoying almost as much as when I completed it the first time when it came out.

Congrats that’s awesome! I’m looking to Prestige Mantle. I’m getting closer for sure.

What are you looking for inside with Sheffield? Want to start him so bad, but have gotten torn apart on inside fastballs with him.

Start him ! 90% of pitches are either fastball / sinker up and in or low and away off speed. Sit up and in and react to the off speed.

Congratulations on hitting your goal. It’s always nice seeing someone achieve a big goal like that. Good luck in making CS!

My goal is to hit WS. Just ONCE would be enough. I’ve hit 875 every month but can never get over the hump. Same thing every month last year. I’ll keep trying but I honestly just feel 875 is the ceiling of my skill.

My goal is World Series each month. I made it for the first time last month, and I'm at 790 right now with a 102-62 record.

A secondary goal is to go 12-0 in BR. I've had a 12-1 run once this year, but have yet to get 12-0. I do currently have a lineup I think I can do it with right now though. Joc, Edwin, Sheffield, FOTF Moncada, Garver, Santana, Yaz, Edman. I have Vida and Lee Smith in the bullpen, along with Ken Giles, Petit, and a couple bronzes that I have a 0 ERA with. I'm 3-0 right now and have 8+ runs in two of those wins, so I think I have a shot.

Another goal is to get all the Team Affinities done. I have all the Stage 1s done, and I have 15 Stage 2s done. Playing stage 2 showdown is actually relaxing for me, so when I just want to kill some time or I'm not feeling competitive, I just grind a few of them out as I slowly progress. I've been doing two showdowns per team, then one exchange. That finishes stage 2. I've gotten a few good pulls out of TA packs (only after I finished collections NMS, because that's my luck) that have helped me try out new cards without having to break my stub bank to do it.

And my last goal is to win the two custom leagues I'm in right now. They're more relaxed, and honestly, I don't mind playing some of the games while enjoying a few adult beverages, but when playoff time comes that won't be the case.

Inside fastball it’s like clock work

Tonight I decided to take a break - typically play 5-6 RS games a day, I got on and just said I need a break lol - I played 27 holes of golf ( walked ) and I’m exhausted - i also just downloaded the Star Wars game and think I’m going to beat the campaign which supposedly takes 35 hours
