It’s seriously unbelievable. A 100% probability that in a showdown, if you have a runner on first and swing the bat, swing anywhere even, you will ground into a double play. It’s not even funny.

Anytime I get a base hit in Showdown, I'm like [censored] here comes the double play, and even if you get another hit, and have two men on base. The next batter hits into a double play.

SDS

It's like the sun rising, death, and taxes. It's going to happen and not just in showdown. For me it's every friggin' game!! Guy on 1st, not matter what the timing or where the ball is...double f'n play.

sorry but, I do not have that problem, I will hit and run, and my lineup is built with speed and power,

1 speed
2 power
3 speed
4 power
ect..

eventually I get players with both.

Ive told the story here more than once, but i hit into 5 DPs in one single final boss Showdown.

That sucks, I had to change strategy because of the double plays. A lot of times when I hit and run I get a meat ball and hit it for a HR, I had 5 HR the other day in a stage 2 showdown and All had runners on base. I only steal or Hit and run in the following counts

2-1
3-1 i usually take the next pitch to see if I can get a walk
2-2
3-2
1-2
0-2

With runner on 1st I always get to one of these counts.

SDS

I really like the concept of showdown and dont mind a challenge, really.... within reason.

I have yet to complete a showdown though. I have a handful of attempts with the AL Central Phase 1, as well as an attempt with Inning 1.

Its just such a major time investment for little benefit and it is VERY unforgiving. I would really love to do these more and more. It is just frustrating and would eat time.

I would like to see it tweaked a little.

Perhaps offer the ability to earn or buy a "continue". Purchase with 500 stubs, or maybe it would cost you a Silver player or something.

I hit and run on those counts, If I k I will have a runner on 2b, It is easy to steal on the pitchers in showdown even with guys with 50 speed. I does not work all the time anything close I can at least foul it off, if I have a slow hitter up The runner on usually has good speed, if a slow runner is on I have a hitter with good speed. This works for me been doing it for the last 3 weeks now been pretty successful with it. Especially in the 6th inning showdown Martinez and Maddux you could practically steal with anyone with 50 plus speed. and 30 plus steal.

I have never had a pitcher pitch out on those counts vs me, I never take an extra leads and they do not pitch out if runner on has speed lower than 65 against me

Agreed here. The 6th inning showdown was the first one I've ever completed. And more often than not, I'm stealing with runner on first, making sure he has a lead at least or bringing in speed off the bench. If you can draft two speed guys who have really good contact that may be the way. And Maddux was kinda easy to pickup.. just sit off speed and sit low (the off speed also makes it easy to steal off of)
