1st WS Push, Advice

SDS

Alright, I have never tried to make WS before as online ranked opponents nonsense wears me out, but I have believe all year my skills have gotten strong enough to do so.....So this season I am finally making my attempt. I am at 845, only one loss on the season.......So I figure I am 4 wins away (3 if I get a tough matchup), or a combination of wins and losses away...

I have one more game I need to get thru before the top guys are rested again...but I have every card available so I have all but Degrom 99, Cabrera, Ohtani, and Ryan rested......Who do you think I should roll out next before I have a couple of the above guys ready to go again...

Any other tips in general are appreciated....I know this is meaningless to many, but I would like to hit WS once just as a fun challenge

SDS

Always be ready for a bunt when runner is in scoring position. Even if a power hitter is at the plate.

SDS

is LS Degrom still a good option?

SDS

I would roll out awards Dallas Keuchel for sure.. I usually give up a lead off homerun then 6 scoreless

SDS

If it were me, no doubt rookie Valenzuela

yeah, I am pretty good with him.....If you know how to use him, he is deadly

And what makes him even better now is hardly anyone is seeing him anymore. He shut me out couple days ago and i did same a few games latet

You just have to change your mindset.

Fun is no longer an option.

You must win at all costs.

This is true. All bets are off a this point. Use an opener and adjust accordingly if you need to. Valenzuela or Leiter are your best bets

Example, one of my latest games, I had Valenzuela in, the guy subbed in his three lefties the first run through the lineup. Pulled him early and went with a righty. When he started subbing in his lefties off the bench for the pitcher, I absolutely knew I had the advantage going to a lefty on my end.

SDS

Just remember, if you can get to 800, you can make WS. I think a lot of people forget that going through

SDS

Good luck man. I just made my first push of the year this season. Went 17-4 and just made it today to 904. Came in today at 868 and was dreading the idea I might get matched up on Legend. I luckily got matched vs two guys in the 800s and got 17 point and 19 points for the wins.

My two games today I went DeGrom and Cabrera(shocker) and they both did what they do

DeGrom- 5 Perfect Innings .Opponent quit

Cabrera- 8 Inning, 1 Run(Ortiz wall scraper), 15 k’s.

If your top guys aren’t rested, you could try Leiter, Paxton or Crochet for a LH. I’ve had success with Lance Lynn for a RH and even that Future Stars Priester is still legit.

SDS

Well , lost the next one. Down to 825.

I hit like [censored] but had guy on first and one out and hit a perfect perfect with Walker that ends up being a double play fly out. I knew at that point it was going to be that kind of game. 0-0 in 9tj he has a hit on 3rd, I pull infield in and hard groundball to 2nd that should be an easy out at home and I get the delay throw animation and he is safe. Went downhill from there. Very demoralizing and infuriating.

SDS

You got this 💪

SDS

Play in my stadium that has highest dimensions and lowest evaluation! Lol

SDS

Lance Lynn is hell on HOF/Legend if you know how to tunnel his fastball/cutter correctly. Good luck man.

This, and you’ll probably have to steal a game you don’t deserve so keep them all as close as possible. Use the entire pen in game one of you have too. And just remember you might need to make a comeback in one game so don’t give up on it to early, comebacks are always possible in this game.

Just fking do it my man ! Best of luck !

SDS

Thanks for the support, guys!

It’s been H E L L. After going 39-2 to start RS ( with a disconnect loss), been bouncing between 820 and 870 since yesterday going 3-3. I have had some very bad RNG , but honestly I can’t hit worth [censored] right now ( nor can my opponents) and every game is a total sweat.

Think I am back around 837 so not sure I can make it before tomorrow deadstop.
