Somehow the splitter in this game resembles a real life sinker quite well from a ball perception perspective, it just (obviously) lacks the velocity.

That’s what I was about to say. The sinker in this game does seem to rise then drop stupid fast. I can’t read it bc it’s initial movement looks like a breaking pitch and it also seems to teleport through it’s sink . ( I don’t mean disappear, but it seems to go 100 mph when it says 93)

When initial movement is up my brain thinks it’s something other than a sinker. This game has unlimited potential, too bad they got it so f’d up!!

I call it the Hot wheels effect, it looks like it hits a hot wheels launcher mid flight and gets on you like stank on shi+

Well said!

Here is where the sinker actually acts like it’s supposed to, when they put outlier on it. Chapman’s sinker with outlier works if you throw it low, but if you go high it flattens out like it should. Orel’s sinker as well as kluber act like a curvebalol in a sense. Also timing is so messed up this year it’s like playing Russian roulette every game

The sinker It's a 90mph knuckleball

To me the sinker varies. Sometimes it looks like an 80mph change up and blows by me. Sometimes when its thrown up and in, it looks like a straight fastball at first, and I'm early.

It boggles my mind how I can be early AND late on the same pitch, when I feel like I'm swinging at the same time.

Right bro. Feels like the [censored] twilight zone. “Too late” first time “very early” second time

Quick question: in real life, when a pitcher throws a sinker does it go up slightly before it darts down? Cuz it does in this game. Idk how the elite player recognize it every time, but congrats to them.

it does not in real life. i play travel baseball and mlb the show has got some pitches very wrong. ex: sinker, cutter, knuckleball, etc...

curveballs r also really hard to hit in real life, but easy as hell in the show
