Seriously screw Brandon Phillips

SDS

I made it through the moments last night. What a [censored] for so many reasons. The 1 steal 1 HR was the worst. Multiple times I hit a HR in the 1st AB just to have a Joey Votto on the bases in front of me every other AB. Finally I got smart hit my HR then with Votto on 1B I bunted hoping they would go for the lead runner and they sure did, I steal 2nd and done.

Wasnt that tough honestly. Use Power swing and start bat location low to elevate for HRs. If you need a SB, stop at 1B on a gapper. Stealing is easy. Just wait for move home and move stick right quickly. No need to anticipate. Just be quick. I hit a lot of HRs in this. Also hit quite a few with a 3-2 Count. So be patient.

This guy always has to comment lol. Not you personally bro, just some guy that says “heck I did it first try. I don’t see what the problem is.” Lol

And then the CPU slide steps and picks off when they want you to steal...I’m probably not gonna finish them

Just sux the fun out of it all together. I finished every one except the home run ones. At this point I might as well strap a straight jacket on and bang my head against concrete. Might be more enjoyable

I can hit the homer just not steal a base. It’s annoying because he doesn’t have speed or power and those are most of the moments. Not just hits lol

Try taking one step off for the leadoff, and then go immediately when he starts his windup (you have to get a perfect jump) took me 3 trys but if i can do it anyone can.

Whats annoying is his team mates will swing at balls and strikeout. Thats very frustrating

I did that but they picked me off. It's better taking a chance I guess though!

Again, if they want to advertise his multi-dimensional power and speed when he was in his prime with moments to get home runs and stolen bases, actually make the card attributes reflect he had 30-30 power and speed.

Yup, this was a big fail, its a 2011 card and they want a 2007 moment. Should have been SS card or Prime

Yeah this BP card is underwhelming knowing it's the last time they'll have him in DD. He's one of the few 2B to ever post a 30-30 season yet in the past few years they haven't given him a 30-30 type of card.

Not gonna lie these moments were definitely a pain in the pooper. Took me like 20 tries to finish the final moment because you have to homer with a guy that has 61 power. I was not happy with the time I put into these moments.

Lmao that’s it you motivated me I’m gonna rocky balboa this [censored]

SDS

I’m all for variety and using different cards, but [censored] don’t ignore his best season. Like the guy before said, one of the few 2B to make 30/30 and they ignore it. But.......that’s SDS for ya. They just don’t care......do what they want.

SDS

I just started working on these last night. This is painful.
Also, these base runners are driving me crazy. I've lost three XBH so far because guys won't move.

Watch the catcher, as soon as he moves to get set, go. Stole with no extra step like that.

SDS

o/ agree

SDS

I was able to get the most of them done except for the 3 hits with a HR and a HR with a steal I could either get the home and have votto in front of me preventing a stolen base or get the steal but couldn't get a good pitch to hit. It took about 15 tries to get the HR and stolen base. I found it to be easier if you dont get a lead and wait for the batter to take a pitch and go on the next pitch. Without the online missions this would be impossible.

SDS

Skip the home run moments and do the other missions to complete it.

SDS

@EvylShaun said in Seriously screw Brandon Phillips:

3 moments then the missions. Exchanges, beat the reds, 5 xbh with reds, 10 hits with 2nd basemen. Load up your team and jump into events. It shouldn't take too long

This is what I did. Actually knocked it out super quick compared to some of the others. I never do all the moments with the player programs.

Hitting one HR is easy, put it on directional aim up and left and press square

SDS

These moments are the worst! They're truly making me hate Brandon Phillips. I never did before, but now I think he sucks lol. Which he doesnt.
