Swing Timing

SDS

Does anyone else feel like swing timing has been a bit more off than usual the past few weeks?

I’m getting blown away by 94 mph fastballs in division series, I’ve never had that until this past few weeks.

Maybe you're getting unlucky breaks and joining games with bad connection. Even in perfect conditions this game has inconsistent timing windows so there's really no pin-pointing the problem here. Other than just accepting we're playing a garbage game until April.

I'm with @Jeviduty on this one. I'm guessing it's a bad connection. I typically play in the morning and late in the day. Yesterday morning, I felt like a 12-0 BR champion. I was hitting everything. Everything felt "good". Then... I played last night and was no-hit. Struck out 18 times, lost 1-0. I only kept playing because I'm eating up innings to prestige Pearson (because I'm nuts).

I'm here in northern FL, and I think the guy I was playing was in Puerto Rico. Everything blew right by me. Painful.

More info - all my games in the morning were played in minor league/spring training parks. The night game was at Minute Maid Park. Ick.

Early last week I was a beast. I was hitting bombs all day, in events, ranked season, BR. This week I couldn't hit the ground if I fell

I always play at the Spring Training Field. I feel it has the least bit of lag.

I’m worried about moving from one console to four in 21. I’m going to avoid Ranked Season for a bit to begin with. I feel there will be a lot of drops.

I don’t understand it either. I’m just tired of playing people with outlier in laggy major league stadium, where I’m striking out constantly due to that lag... in my monitor I’m not late or early, but my feedback says differently, I try to adjust but it doesn’t really work, I try and gear up for the fastball and swing way early and I’m still late so, my opponent sees this and starts with the off speed and it’s game over... So I hate games like that, because you’re not playing your opponent you’re playing feedback, and I honestly hate that I can’t adjust to games like this where the lag is beating me.

does anyone else notice a big difference from one batter to another? I seem to be more able to get to the fastball with guys that have more compact swings (Betts, Albies, Hornsby).

Oh really... Give me a list of players with compact swing. Ty.

Not sure if you are serious or being sarcastic, but the three I mentioned seem to get to the ball quicker than others. I think Rollins is pretty good also. But I am far from any authority on it. I would like to see some others' input on this.

As would I 🙂

Mondesi and Charlie Blackmon also seem to get the bat through the zone faster than most.

Tre Turner has a good swing as well.

Bregman and Steve Finley got quick glitchy swings too.
