Kluber

SDS

Been a real blast going against kluber like 7 of my last 8 games. Also love the solo home run fest. Really awesome seeing guys with 35 home runs and 59 rbis and stuff like that. Great job this year.

SDS

I just don’t understand why we have Casey Mize, Brenden McKay, Dustin May, Sixto Sanchez, Spencer Howard, Luis Patino, etc etc as high rated diamonds.

YET Bumgarner and Kershaw are still sitting with 80s LS cards. Huh?!?

SDS

Are we talking events or RS?

It would make sense in events there would be a bunch of solos with it being on All-Star difficulty.

Interesting side note, I won one of my last games on a suicide squeeze

They got their cards early last year and easy. They will probably be WS or BR rewards in a few months

Suicide squeeze huh? That’s something to be proud of.

Well, when you’re throwing a perfect game and the dude is flailing at everything, and the perfect/perfects are atom balls, on top of 0 out base running mistake at 3rd base... you gotta do what you can to avoid an upset.
Definitely out of my character and philosophy, but OP’s inferring solo home runs are the only way to score.... had to break the cycle, my dude.

Edit: Also... it was against Kluber

I haven’t bunted first a hit since 2015. I will never bunt for a hit regardless of any game situation. But yeah I hear you loud and clear.....my dude.

Jake Taylor hasn’t bunted since 1989.

SDS

I love seeing Kluber. He's easy to hit

SDS

Yeah, sometimes he’s easy sometimes not. It’s just more the fact that it’s boring seeing the same guys over and over. It’s awesome there’s so much card variety but let’s be honest all 99’s don’t play equal. The swing and pitchers delivery have a larger impact than they should.

SDS

Forgot my point there. So people figure out which cards have exploits and you just see those over and over. Chipper/Bellinger/Didi, etc. You never see a Bagwell, Smoltz, Mike Schmidt. There should be some way they can boost those cards or whatever to compensate for undesirable animations.

Dude there is nothing extra-honorable about never bunting in a baseball video game. If it's a tie game in the 9th or extras and you've got a suicide squeeze situation it's perfectly reasonable to go for it and players should setup for it.

SDS

Good lord, are there any teams besides mine that don’t have bellinger and didi?

I only use Belli, Didi doesn't have the arm and 2nd base is locked up. I suppose Belli will lose his job in left once I pick up the new Trout.

SDS

Didi is a cheat code for real

I would like to see Bagwell more. And I agree some cards just don’t perform. For me, that card is Miggy. That card should absolutely mash and it just hasn’t worked out.

Everyone’s entitled to their opinion. I think that’s ridiculous. You have a DD team full of super jacked mashers, and you’re relying on the one thing that requires zero skill to win the game?? Just spent an hour showing if you’re skills, now we’re gonna seal the win showing no skills?? F that go play with the girls!

Man, there has been nothing more disappointing than my performance with mantle. Like how can you do bad with Mantle? Like 90 ab’s in and he’s hitting .200 he does hit a homer ever 9 ab’s or so that’s good but I’m just so disappointed how I’ve done with him. Meanwhile my 90 overall Stargell destroys everything.
