Things you Do Year to Year that you shouldn't

SDS

Was thinking about this earlier since I never thought Mookie was in play but he is.
What do you tell yourself every year what you should not do but ALWAYS seem to do no matter what?
Mine has to be locking in sellable cards and making small profits for the sake of a card I never end up using.
I always try to make mental notes on what I need to change but when the new games comes out, I get stupid again.

SDS

Buying packs. I literally have a post-it note saying "Don't buy packs" on my monitor. I can't resist the urge.

SDS

Second buying packs. I’ll flip and start feeling good. And then I’ll buy packs. Headlines, kitchen sinks.... if it’s a specialty pack I buy them all

SDS

Headliners. I've spent 37.5k twice a week for 2 years

SDS

I'm going to be disciplined this year and not swing at the first pitch. I continue to fail miserably.

SDS

I always say I’ll play more ranked, but then I tell myself, but I need player X before I do and then I don’t end up doing it until September.

That’s me at the beginning of the game. Takes e over a month to get into ranked

For me it would be looking through this forum

Don't swing at pitches in the dirt.

Proceed to swing at pitches in the dirt

I love having a patient at bat where I work the count. I’m seeing these dirt balls, laying off. The 3-1, swing and miss. 3-2 cheat fastball or sinker high. Low ball in the dirt, I react and whiff

SDS

I tell myself every year that I'll work to build up a nice healthy pool of stubs before I make any major purchases so flipping isn't as much of a hassle, but there's always a shiny new card that I can't resist spending them on and I end up being broke all the time.

"I'm going to play online. I'm going to play online."

Haven't played an online game in two years, and probably have played 5 total games since it became a thing. 🤣🤣

SDS

All of the above 👆

SDS

swinging at bad pitches lol

SDS

Collecting as many different player cards as possible even though I know I will never use most of them with any regularity, if at all. Should be happy just putting together a nice lineup but nope my ocd won’t allow that.

Yep another lie I like to tell myself is “I will stop swinging at the first pitch 80% of the time”

Collecting is like 90% of the reason I play this game. The fact that I've never been able to finish a year with every single card is my biggest disappointment lol.

What is your rate of actually drawing the HL?

SDS

I'm a free swinger, it's my downfall a lot. I tend to be HR or nothing when it comes to hitting. I rely on my pitching for sure to win games. I def need to be more patient at the plate to be better at the game.

Not very good. I think I've pulled 7 headliners this year with every headliner pack bought and the free ones counted. Out of those 7, maybe 3 came out of the pack they were supposed to. I do have a pretty fair rate of pulling live series diamonds out of headliner packs though
