Vida Blue

SDS

Anyone else kinda disappointed since he doesn’t have a sinker. Wish they were more usable on HOF and legend but with a sinker and cutter it’s tough. Just gonna be a lefty degrom. When they teased him I really thought he would’ve had a nicer repitoire.

SDS

I thought it was a breath of fresh air….

Why does every single pitcher need a sinker??

Exactly! It’s a stupid crutch used by players. Take away their out pitch and they cry. It’s like if NBA2K took out 5 outs and Curry sliding. Those guys would be lost. It a cheesy meta that needs to be nerfed.

Well because their coding is broke and it is by far the most OP pitch in the game.

SDS

The big difference between Vida and other pitchers without sinkers is his delivery. It's hard to read out of the hand

I pitch great with a lot of pitchers but I get shelled with degrom. These dudes above clearly don’t play decent players that can spin a 102 mph fastball over the wall simply bc it doesn’t move. I wish it wasn’t like that but movement on the pitches is what wins games

SDS

Vida Blue literally has the sinkerballer quirk on his 2 seamer

Degrom is a bad comparison though. Degrom doesn't have outlier and every pitch he throws is hard, plus he has an easy to read delivery. Vida has a funky release, and massive speed differentials, with a 123 H/9. He will be plenty good. Vida doesn't have outlier either but that isn't the point

The only reason why cutters and off speed pitches are so effective is that they look the same as the sinker out of the hand and you can not catch up with it by reading the pitch and reacting properly.

When you try to pitch with a guy like DeGrom it is BP without the threat of the sinker.

It is disappointing they didn't give him a sinker. I can't imagine why he would be used over Lee, Leiter or Glavine in RS. Id probably rather throw Topps Now JA Happ or the 42 Patrick Corbin over Vida Blue.

Its also funny how the cutter always is shattering bats although it is like twice as slow as a sinker regardless of what the pitch speed numbers say.

BS....Crochet gets hammered against good players. Only people that don't have a monitor or have a bad connection won't be able to tee off on Vida Blue.

It's so hard picking up his delivery for me.

Vida is a must.

This card is Endgame.

SDS

They gave him a slider which he traditionally doesn't have. I know he had it last year on his 97 card, but that's still a great addition.

It’s a home run derby doesn’t matter if they threw 110 these dudes out here will hunt it and still sit back on the off speed

Respectfully, I promise Vida Blue will not be a lefty deGrom. His funky motion and release make him incredibly difficult to hit. Arguably as effective as a good sinker.

SDS

I think he'll be very good personally.

SDS

The OP is asking for another Sinker???
I've sunk enough time in BP trying to figure that pitch out 🤪 and why its so OP.

SDS

Yeah, I can't be the only one who hates facing vida blue. I'd rather face Cliff Lee any day.

Stop listening to youtubers and actually try the card. He's gonna be nasty. So sick of this meta BS. Sorry you cant be effective unless a pitcher has a sinker. Maybe try practicing up a bit....

I don’t give a **** about what a youtuber can say but I guarantee I played yo goofy ahh with vida I’m giving up runs but if I run cliff lee out there it’s a complete game mercy rule shutout. I wasn’t rated 1000 last season because I wasn’t effective
