Bullpen Advice

SDS

Aight, so I've blown so many games in the last week because of my bullpen. Anyone else having problems with their pen? Or does anyone have any suggestions for good, reasonably priced cards? Cards that I have recently used in my bullpen include:
92 Rodney
93 Ekersley
92 Rob Nenn
89 Doolitle
86 Morton
96 fingers
85 Chapman
85 Wood
87 Pleasac
Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

SDS

Bueller?

There's a lot of tinkering to be done, based on how you pitch. I like to have a variety of different types of pitchers in the bullpen, personally. The only specific suggestion I can make that's going to help you immensely is to get rid of Morton.

For generalities, here's my current pen (to my best recollection, I'm not at the console):

Awards Rollie
SS Franco
Prime Rodney
Billy Wagner
SS Rivera
Gagne
Prime Dibble

SDS

You should definitely give Dibble and Rivera a try.

SDS

keep Rodney, Eck, Morton, Fingers, & Chapman
add Franco off market for cheap or Britton & Mo from inning program

LS 81 Taylor Rogers is one of the biggest steals on the market

SDS

Hader and Rodney are both killing it for me.
The rest of my pen consists of
Morton
Alvarado (butchered the spelling)
LS Chapman
Doolittle or Gossage
Fingers

Not mentioned yet, but it's also important to know what difficulty level you typically play your games. There are some pitchers I wouldn't dream of using in an AS game, but are great HOF+, for example

SDS

I've yet to give up a run with 85 adam ottavino...and eckersley is solid too.

Hes always been one of my favorite lower tiered releivers. His stuff is nasty once you get past his control.

I don't love the fact that he has only 3 pitches but your right his stuff is nasty so will see.

Didn’t give up my first earned run with Fingers until this last RS game. But... who wasn’t giving up runs that game?

Guys like Ottavino are weird I've done very well using him but at the same time I hit him very well. The same goes for other good fastball/slider primary pitchers that don't have great velocity like eckersley and fingers.

Yeah that new Betances looks like he might be pretty solid

SDS

@LankyRyan he looks good, just worried about his control and lack of a changeup/splitter. His 4seam doesn’t have outlier so his 2 seam isn’t a great speed difference so makes using the 2 seam tougher. The only thing thing that could save him is if the 2 seam has a lot of movement and can be used almost like a reverse cutter
