What about Finest Buehler? And I bought Finest DeGrom; should I resell him?

Havent sold Young yet.

Trying to finalize my rotation.

So far it is. Finest Cole, Finest DeGrom, SS Mathewson, Finest Morton, and SS Burnett.

I'm buying SS Verlander soon.

I'd sell all 4 and wouldn't buy verlander

I wonder if op has Greinke yet

I wouldn't buy Grienke either

Then who would you buy

Kluber, Seaver, Gibson, Oswalt

I wouldn't buy Seaver, Gibson, or Oswalt

All are better than Grienke and everyone in his rotation

I hard disagree but I can't pitch so what can I say

That's fine to disagree, I don't know much about this game

Maybe if Sportsking is still on here he can teach you more about this game

Maybe, who knows

You wanna look for guys who have great pitch repertoires and are hard to pick up the delivery. Great repertoire doesn't mean guys who just throw gas and a slower offspeed pitch. Everybody can hit 100mph fastballs nowadays.

You want guys who have pitches that move, like sinkers, cutters, circle changes, big wonky curveballs, that kinda stuff. Especially the way sinkers move in this game, they are probably the toughest to hit with all the movement and break even if you throw it high.

So don't just look for flamethrowers with good H/9 and K/9. Look for pitchers that have a lot of moving pitches. You wanna get outs by generating weak contact, not by strikeouts. Striking out is a rarity nowadays anyway.

SS Feller? SS Byleven? SS Oswalt then?

SS Feller? SS Byleven? SS Oswalt then?

I don't like Feller personally, he always gets lit up and I always hit him hard too. Blyleven was good early on but everybody has seen him by now. Oswalt is solid and matched the profile I described earlier, his sinker is good and his curveball is too. His release is hard to pick up on as well.

Other good options are guys like Kluber, King Flelix, Waino, pretty much every Hershiser card. Some of those cards are dirt cheap or even 100% free. They're not the sexiest cards in the game but they're highly effective if you use them correctly.

SDS

POTM James Paxton is awesome too. Great pitches, kind of a deceptive delivery and he's a lefty. No idea how much the collection would cost by now, but I don't see it being that expensive.

SDS

DeGrom would unhittable if his off speed stuff was 3-4 mph slower. Young needs a second velo pitch, but is more usable on all star because of his movement

I got him for around 12k buying and quick selling

Best 12K you'll ever spend

Young is a fun card just to mess around with, because his repertoire is so unique. It’s easy for a decent-to-good player to sit on fastball or any offspeed though, so he’s not the best for H2H.

My go-to rotation is Finest Cole, SS Greinke, SS Oswalt, SS Kershaw, SS Kluber.

I’ve always found I have the most success with guys that throw mid-to-upper 90’s with a low 70’s curveball, like Kershaw, Greinke, and Oswalt. I liked Seaver when I had him too, but I sold him a while back to improve other areas.

Waino is from the partners moments I think. Marichal too, I had success with Marichal as well but he doesn't really have a good fastball so you can just sit back for his offspeed pitches. If you're playing a good player, that's gonna be a problem. Bartolo Colon is not worth it imo, fun to use because it's the legend Bartolo, but not worth it lol.

Neither, both aren't good options

I second this

3rd..My 5 are Verlander, Feller, Finest Sherzer, Finest Cole and Gibson..Tried many I've had before and new ones like Lefty Degrom is super hittable and I can pitch.Cy Young I had for 3 starts and realized good players pick up.on him easy.I feast on him as well.

I disagree the guy I played against last night had 13 strikeouts...yes....I am that bad at hitting! LOL - I somehow still won. Yes....he was that bad at hitting too. Truth be told I agree 100% with you. Typically I might strike out 2-3 times a game but for some reason I just couldnt do anything right that game. Luckily, my pitching was on point. I had 11 strikeouts to his 13...it was just one really ugly game.

Yes, a straight fastball is rarely effective in this game unless you're playing a bad hitter

I would say a very effective Slider is a must as well. I get more off balance swings with that pitch than any other.

I disagree, people sit slider against same handed pitchers, cutters are much more effective
