How Many At Bats Do You Give Your Newly Acquired Player...

SDS

...before deciding to bench him or sell him back to the market if he's under performing?

Do you have a set number of tries, or are you more cut throat and base it even on a small sample size?

SDS

If he doesn’t homer in the first at bat he’s riding the pine 😎

SDS
  1. Just in case I messed up the first one.
SDS

I don’t have a certain number. Just a feel. If I’ve been struggling bad I’ll go check his stats and adjust accordingly. Definitely a good 20-25 games

SDS

It depends on how long their sideburns are.

I was gonna ask the same thing. Been trying Reggie Jackson out. I usually give it 10 games or so but that’s just me

I thought I told you to shave those sideburns Don mattingly.

SDS

I tend to make decisions based on offline play. Online is so random, and hitting results are not consistent.

Lmfao. “You know how you can tell this porno is from the 80s?” 🤣

This comment is wildly disturbing my mind .... Now I see hair on everything ! Haha 🤣

SDS

I give guys 50 at bats. Sometimes I’m surprised with guys I didn’t think I would like

SDS

I let the guy swing and if it’s a switch hitter he can swing all day...

SDS

Depends on what I don't like about them. Hitters with leg kicks mess with me something fierce, so they get a lot less slack to produce.

SDS

I go offline because online has been sort of off recently. I don’t have a specific number I just see how I like his swing or if he’s being productive like I wanted him to be. If your hitting average with a guy but he makes incredible fielding plays I would also advise keeping him till u find like a new card that you like better.

SDS

Roughly 20-30.

SDS

Usually I'll give about 10-20 conquest games. Some swings tho you can just tell right away are trash.

SDS

for me its just feel. like bichette. i thought i would love him but i cant get hits online or offline with him while im a demon with johnny damon. so i had to bench big dante.

SDS

Do any of you feel that when you get a new card it plays really well but then after a week or so it doesn’t play quite as well? This could be all mental on my end but I really feel like I bat .500 with a card for a few days and then all of a sudden I can’t hit anything with it.

If his swing is good then i give him 50 but if it's bad then one game and done

Yes this seems to happen to me as well. Ill start out over .300 at 100 at bats then it will work its way down to the mid 250's. No idea why it happens but i either suck with a card at first and get better or am really good and they come back to earth

Lmao. Was from an old Adam Sandler movie.

SDS

I usually Give them around 50, but it only took me like 20 to know Soriano wasn't going to work

SDS

Depends on if I’m a fan of the player.

I sucked with Arenado when I first started using him in 17 (there was a lot more top spin on certain swings in that game) but I refused to not be good with him. So he got the benefit of the doubt and now I love using him. He probably got 100 more ABs than anyone else would have.

I firmly believe you can be great with any card in this game but some swings just take a lot longer to get the hang of and I don’t blame people for pulling the cord too quickly.

Great question. Arenado would have been gone in 60 seconds but soon as I pulled him I did the Cardinals set. Only used him sparingly but never fully game up on him. Last night he finally homered! Was a doubles machine for about 60-70 offline AB's
