Is 99 Nolan Ryan worth a shot?

SDS

Thinking of selling hrd cano, fotf Dawson and the new gagne for him, yay or nay?

SDS

What's the point if you don't buy a monitor?

Have not tried online yet, doing one of the missions to beat the Reds on all-star with him. 4 innings in and he's at 80 pitches with 9 runs given up, 4 were Homer's. I bet he's hard as heck to hit against non cpu lol. Orel pitched a shutout through the 8th against same team same difficulty a few days ago.

I pulled him and first ranked season game was on all star. My opponent also had him. I gave up 3 runs in the first. He gave up 2 runs in the first. He disconnected. Nolan's control is bad and he has 2 fast pitches and 2 offspeed. All you have to do is sit fb and react to offspeed. Lots of walks and pitches that float down the middle. He might be better on hall of fame but a good player will destroy him.

To be fair though, what good player doesn't destroy most of the pitching in this game?

Absolutely! Ryan is a dominator. Worth every minute of your time. You will have good fun getting through the challenges. I recommend 99 Nolan Ryan.

what's the difference between him and 97 Kerry wood, is there anything that makes Nolan stand out more than wood?

Kerry Wood can be the 1998 version that struck out 20 Astros hitters one game and be as wild as Mitch Williams the next.

Nolan is like 5/6/98 Wood game..every start. Perfection. An absolute polished pitching machine. Occasionally a walk but, for the most part, the dominance of his fast ball will offset the wild.

I struck out 19 my first game with smoltz-, though dude was worse than me-I sold smoltz to try out aj Burnett and regretted the decision. I need a power pitcher with a good change up do be somewhat successful.

I've got to be much worse than either of you. I feel like I'm trying to hit a bullet with a whiffle ball bat when I step in against The Ryan Express. SDS did a fee-nominal job replicating this legend.

Ryan is a beast. I used his 92 all year and dominated. Can’t wait to use this 99 and he has a sinker and I’m pretty sure he has outlier too
