Yeah I just carry a common backup catcher because Salvy is not leaving the lineup.

Having to insert commons to get a valid lineup means I will pass on the event.

0 commons on my team, 4 diamond starters 1 gold starter. 6 diamond bullpen arms, full 99 roster with 1 98, prestige Soto on the bench, diamond zimmerman, gold pete alonso, 2 bronze pinch runners

Those diamonds are NOT all 99's for your SP and bullpen.

The point is that anything that requires me to shuffle bantha poodu into a lineup configuration at this stage of the game, will get a hard pass from me

I started out strong 4-1 and I've gone on to lose 5 in a row... Not sure what is happening. I generally pitch pretty well and can't hit a lick (its the first year I've ever played online). I seemed to have lost all ability to pitch.

Amazing how it just flat out disappears on you. Had it happen recently I went back and did the first POTM moment against Rockies using Patrick Corbin it got me back on track its fairly long think its 12 k's 7 innings and you dont get many cheap K's, that group of Rockies is juiced plus want to say a run given up fails you

There are no 99 bullpen arms for this event, 2 99s 1 94 Shohei because I just picked him up and a 90, before getting Shohei I was running 3 99s

At this rate the forever event will have an overall cap.

I wouldn’t want it just current players. No thanks, though I get where you’re coming from. Frankly, I’m only using guys I can prestige (and Miggy, who I still don’t have 3 HRs with). I even load up my prestigeable SP and use them as relievers because there are no relievers to prestige in this event. I probably wouldn’t even bother playing the event if I couldn’t prestige guys.

Played a few more times today. Won a few but still had games where I’m getting blasted and where I don’t seem to get rewarded for good swings. checking feedback after the game and some good feedback not producing hits. Also, a ton of warning track fly outs for me.

I did look up two of my opponents I faced today and they are fairly good players. So, I just have to tip my hat I guess. Just frustrating to lose so much and not have good feedback rewarded pitching and hitting.

SDS

I cant do anything in this event... cant hit anything but bullets at opposing fielders while all my opponents are jacking balls out of the dirt... im like 9-20

SDS

I won my first game in this event. Went into the 8th inning and had trea turner hit a double with brian roberts on third and 2 outs. Opponent was not concerned with keeping roberts close to 3rd so go a big lead and dropped a perfect bunt with soto to win. May be cheesy but it was the 8th inning and I had to get to work it was either win in the 8th or quit in the ninth.

You could have always got a hit with Soto. I’d say the odds of him getting down a two strike bunt are far less than him getting a hit. That’s why people call that cheese, because in real life nobody would ever give Soto the bunt sign in that situation, and if they did, I’m sure he’d ignore it.

I was off on my timing with most of the guys the whole game had a long deep perfect perfect fly out with cobb. I don't win alot of the events really just do it to get stats for prestige.

SDS

I had a great start going 20-5, but lost 2 of the last 3, and every single game seems to be against very good players.. SDS still hasn't even updated their twitter feed on this event or new rewards, guess I shouldn't be surprised (but I am).

I’m sympathetic, but honestly, you never get better by bunting with Soto. The guy’s contact numbers are so good, you can easily foul off pitches until you get a good one to hit. I know, easier said than done, but IMO, swinging away with Soto in that situation is a much healthier approach.

I have walked 20 batters in the last five event games and given up 42 runs. That’s an average of 4 walks and 8.4 runs per game. I literally cannot throw a strike to save my life.

It always seems like you (not you specifically) shafted but the opponent you are facing gets 2-2 or 3-2 counts. I hate when my opponent get several 3-2 or 3-1 counts once they get a guy on base never fails I don't want to just lay one in and I end up walking them.

SDS

I mean, I wish I could blame quick counts, but honestly what seems to be happening is I get two outs then can’t locate.

SDS

I think the sliders are pretty juiced in this event.
