Any time you strike out someone 20+ times that says more about the tomato can you faced than the pitcher on the mound.

Even a tomato won't Strike out 21 times at 500+ unless the pitcher plays...

SDS

he is a rabbit hole pitcher, he is all about keeping the hitters guess wrong because if they guess right, he gets crushed. if you can keep hitters going down the rabbit hole, he is hard to beat on the otherhand

SDS

His fastball is 92 but his off speed pitches are so good makes his fastball very useful. Have keep your opponent guessing

SDS

Depends how you like to pitch honestly. Off speed guys don’t work well for me personally. I’d rather have movement and gas. So I’m adding DeGrom and Ryan to your rotation. Again, personal preference.

SDS

I’m gonna be honest, I’m a decent player but I played him a couple of days ago on HOF and I could not touch the maxed out screwball. It’s a mind**** of a pitch. I think I struck out at least 16 times

Idk I've seen plenty of Ks with random bronze guys because some tomatoes literally swing at every pitch. Then typically send you a message afterward saying stop spamming sliders loser or something along those lines despite striking out 26 times at balls nowhere near the zone and hitting one ball to the warning track when you accidentally had your thumb slip mid pitch motion.

I throw strikes. I'm going to look for the picture I took of the performance. I'll post the links shortly.

EDIT I only have a picture of the post game.

This is the best description. You can basically tell right away if the guy you're playing is going to light up offspeed or if you can fool them. Personally I love facing Valenzuela because I know I only have to make a line in my head where the bottom third of the zone starts and anything above that is free swings and anything below just let it go. If they dot up and it gets called more power to them but at some point they'll have to come up higher and get shelled or if they only spam lowballs then I adjust to get the lowball then. But certain guys like Valenzuela, Nick Anderson, Rob Dibble, and Kenley Jansen I just love hitting off of.
