How is this card? This is probably the best version of this card since he was introduced as a new legend a few years ago. His stats and pitch mix look solid, but what stands out the most is the velo and control are higher than usual with this card. Is he worth trying? Does anyone have experience with using/facing him?

If you don’t fall asleep during his windup, you’ll be ok

SDS

Be prepared to do the laundry or the dishes as you wait for his windup to be over. One pitch takes about a minute (or longer). Spoiler, I won't use him again.

SDS

His windup is horrendous. It's actually more difficult to time up than you'd think. He's noticeably better from the stretch for this reason.

SDS

If you use the superior input to pitch - analog, get ready to hold down the stick for 5 years, you may slip half way and hit the batter out of boredom.

No kidding, in huge run differential games last year, I would IBB the first batter just so I could pitch out of the stretch. It is brutal

SDS

yea i pitched one game with him and that was enough. Just cant take that windup
