Need some advice on new pitchers and other…

SDS

Looking for some hidden gems if that’s even possible on here lol. Any advice on some maybe not so well know pitchers? Tired of using the same guys that everyone else uses. Greatly appreciate any mature posts on the question. And even the non mature ones 😂

Side question. What pitchers have the very best slider on the game? Love a good slider!

Love the game love the site most of the time. I’m older so I know when to overlook the internet idiot. And there are more here than most. I don’t let that bother me though. I’m a 1st year player. Working hard to get better. Taking my share of whoopings and even delivering a few. Knock on wood…my connections for the most part have been excellent. I’ve had only 2 freezes the entire time I’ve played and I quit and move on. Not about to leave and/or sit there and just look at the Screen. Foolishness at the highest level. Anyways, enough rambling and I apologize for that. Hope to get some good recommendations.! Good luck all with the game and pack luck!

SDS

I really like using Roy Oswalt. Maddux, and topps now Kluber have stuff that move a ton. 42 Series Berrios has a nasty Slurve too.

SDS

I second the berrios if you are looking for a slide piece. It’s absolutely disgusting with a ton of movement.

SDS

Same on Berrios also if your looking for a hidden gem that Bill Mazoroski card rakes for me. Still use him over Semien.

Don't ask me why or how ... But .....
G : 19
CG : 13
SHO : 9
QS : 11
IP : 106.1
ERA : 1.69
WHIP : 0.68
SO : 131
Give only 7hr and 20 earn run

Yep !!!!!!! I'm talking about the guy with the majestic/weird/too much clean cut beard, he is my obscur hero till this day : Dallas Keuchel (stats online +/- 75% on all star 25% HOF) I like his cut/slider combo and lethal control for me ! Almost free about 17k maybe you should give him a try ! P.s. sorry for my English I work on that ...

SDS

Maybe not 'hidden,' but the Thome from the TA is just ludicrous! Oppo bombs, clutch oppo doubles to the point that when I get Ortiz, he may be on the bench!
Another is TN Cronenworth. 88 Doolittle is another. He was the first TA2 card I ran to get! TN Dejong & Escobar as well. Oddly, I don't see a lot of if any TN cards still in people's lineups.
P.O.M. program Wheeler is nasty, if you know how to use his pitches. I was using his Slider break wrong and got smacked around a bit first start, but figured him out. He also hits well. I went 0-5 with him yesterday, but everything was hit hard.

SDS

I thought you needed the WS banner or icon to get the goat icon? How did you get yours?

SDS

I appreciate you guys taking time out to post. I love hearing everyone’s thoughts and takes on players! @RaieNez_PSN I have that DK card. Might slide him in for a try. @TheGoaler_PSN yeah man that Cronenworth card is nice! I used wheeler yesterday and went 2-1 with him one was a quit. His loss was because I couldn’t hit. Swinging at everything kind of game. He does have some crisp contact as well. @yankblan_PSN I don’t have a World Series win so I guess not. You need 2 or 3 items though. Not exactly sure. I will have to look. Thanks again all!

SDS

AJ Burnett is my ace. Still going strong for me.

Prior seems ok too.

I’m grinding to 40 wins in ranked so I can get Vida though.

SDS

Mark Prior has been lights out for me. That slurve, curveball, fastball combination has been very good.

Theres an entire GOAT collection that gives you rewards like the ICON and banner. These include:

  • Getting Chipper from LS Collection
  • Getting that Icon from finishing every daily moment in a month (the watch one)
  • Going 12-0 in BR
  • Getting to WS in RS
  • Unlocking Milestone Mo
  • Unlocking Polo Grounds via stadium collection (collect all the other diamond fields....really not worth the cost unless you really like Polo or got nothing else to save for)
SDS

the John Means Topps now card, i use a ton have him lvl 5
the 42 series Trent Grisham

He literally just threw my first perfect game for me online. Ever. 20 strike outs.

(Ok I threw a combined relief one 2 weeks ago but this the proper way!)

There are some great pitchers to get by playing the Monthly Awards and Topps Now moments. If you play the moments, you can get Corbin Burnes for FREE!

Dont know what hapened with Burnes. His ERA went from like 1.50 from 10 starts to 4.80 after 20.

He used to be the Cabrera of the 1st inning program, but he quickly went downhill.

Just like any pitcher. When everyone and their mom is using them every game, they get easier to hit.

SDS

I’ve been using Maddux and pitched a complete game shutout with him in his debut. Haven’t played anyone that’s used him. Forces a lot of weak contact.

Me too....and like overnight. everybody hits him.

SDS

everyone should have Cabrera and Burns in their lineup

SDS

I have a 0.00 era with 95 bob gibson. Small sample size, I’ve only used him in the stances event but will try him out in Ranked Seasons.
