That was fun with him sitting at first for every XBH I needed for the Phillips moments... speed is 17 but base running -245. Great ball player though!
My problem is once again the Cardinals or more so the fact that none of them can throw strikes.
Moments are cool but things like that are what makes them annoying.
-Needing XBH but putting runners on in front of you that will always be conservative on the bases
-Needing a SB but having the CPU batter swing away every time you try and steal
-Needing a PO or assist in the field but never getting the opportunities
-Moments that require power from the batter (get a HR, get 5+ TB in 1 game) who only has average power or the pitcher never throws anything that could remotely be hit for power
-Having to bat as the pitcher in a pitching moment
-Having to pitch in an offensive moment (from showdown)
-Oh and in pitching moments, I would like to control the entire defense and not be player locked as the pitcher. I feel like I could make plays on defense that the CPU just isn't making.
Fix that stuff and moments would be fine.
For me, it's hitting a homer on the first at bat, and every subsequent at bat was a single or a walk with the ever speedy Joey Votto on second base
You’re forgetting in moments how many times the CPU pitchers throw to 1B and 2B on pickoffs while you’re batting, how many times the CPU batters run your pitch count up by fouling over and over, and my favorite - hitting me with a pitch late in a game when I need hits. Not to mention how many times the CPU defense dives to catch balls that are headed for the gap. They also [censored] you around by constantly setting you up against junk ball pitchers that throw nothing but sliders and off speed off the plate. You defiantly can’t be a free-swinger in moments.
I just did the online missions, did the exchange and beat the Reds, so i only had to do 3 Moments. They all looked awful. Such a shame that SDS gave us a 60 power BP this late in the year.
