Anyone Else Struggle To Hit With Larry Walker?

SDS

I cannot get the timing of his swing down and he's riding the bench in favor of Eric Davis, Lou Brock and 99 Jo Adell

I hit good with him against righties but his swing is a little long for me when trying to hit lefty on lefty. Hard sinkers inside are hard for me to time up with him. Lou brock on the other hand I rake with and destroy the ball.

SDS

I had the same issue. Ended up selling him.

SDS

Quite the opposite for me, i hit a ton with Walker, over .300, but hitting sub .240 with Davis.

As soon as i Prestige Davis, i will never use him in online play again, as a huge Reds fan and a big fan of Davis, it pains me to say. Walker like Mantle will likely never leave my lineup.

SDS

One of the things I like about the game is how individual people's experience is. Walker is the best hitter I've used this year and is definitely end game for me.

Yeah, it is why i don't understand player recommendations or reviews, cards hit differently for everyone.

SDS

He started off like .220 for me and all the sudden I went 5/5 then like 3/5 back to back games and since then he’s been solid. Took awhile to figure out his swing. Some left on left crime, but I agree he’s pretty tough going L o L

SDS

Yeah, same issue! Better like .170 after 50 abs. By far the lowest average. I think all gets hit are HR though

SDS

Think he hit under .100 for me. Sold him after one night and haven’t used him since

SDS

I was hitting like .460 with him for the first two weeks I had him with bombs left and right, but I’m kinda in a slump and he down around .350 now. I wish I could hit with Davis. That being said, he is still my 2nd best hitter next to Mantle

man i am batting 150 with Eric Davis after like 80 games i cant hit with him but thankfully walker is solid af for me

SDS

Walker is a freak. I laugh when I see people online who have a mid to low .200 avg with him.. Poor bastards

SDS

Nope. He hits nothing but [censored] shots.

SDS

I struggled at first with Walker but now he hit the C R A P out of the ball! He’s staying in right the rest of the year for me. Until we get a Mays & Griffey. Because there’s no way I can sit Mickey

SDS

I have struggled with Walker too which has been disappointing because I was a fan of Larry Walker and I would love to have him in my lineup. I struggled with Tony Gwynn initially and now Gwynn is one of my top hitters which gives me hope I’m going to start heating up with Walker eventually

Yea I started slow with him as well, but now I’m really finding my groove with his swing. Great bat and very solid in RF

SDS

This is what makes this game so cool to me. I was trash with Walker as well, but others seems to crush with him (I’m only mildly scared when he steps into the box against me). It seems like people make fun of Larkin for “raking”, but he’s been really good for me. Some people seem to struggle with Reggie, but he’s awesome for me. Killebrew is a god for me, but not others. I don’t know what causes these disparities, but it’s fun.

You'd die of laughter if you saw my average with Mantle then.....

Look at it this way: I have a better chance of pulling 3 Mike Trouts out of 3 straight Show Packs than I do of prestiging Mantle this year. 😕

Exactly. I can't do anything with Reggie, I even picked up the Prestige one to try him again and all he does is hit bombs against me.

SDS

Walker hit a HR his first AB for me, and then didn't do [censored] for a long time. I'm heating up with him now though, he singlehandedly won me a game yesterday with 2 dongs. So give it time before giving up
