Justin Turner 8 Total Bases

Why not just tell us we need two homeruns?
All he hits are either singles or homeruns. And if you don't get a homerun in the first two ABs, you may as well start over.

Yeah I did the missions instead of two of his moments. Card is awful and has no pop

Oh, it's not that. If Stroman would actually pitch how he's 'made' it wouldn't be an issue. But for some unknown reason all I'm seeing is sliders low and outside. Like so far outside the first baseman had a better chance of hitting them.

Welcome to moments, where you have to put your controller to the side for the first 3 pitches. It's the same for the 9 inning games, ball after ball after ball.
Sorry i'm a bit annoyed just lost to the Nationals 32. It's my fault because i had no patience and just wanted to hit.

I feel you , I get in that mode sometimes. I don’t play at allstar difficulty often , so when I do I seem to lock in. I actually play better on AS than I do on Vet for some reason. I ran Glavine out there ( 4th in my rotation ) and drew some bronze I had never heard of. Tagged him for 6 in two innings and to get that he threw close to 60 pitches. A lot of balls. Becomes annoyingly tedious.

This is getting ridiculous. I finally complete Turner's Moments and start on Roberts.
I do the 13 Ks first and strike out the first 13 batters.
I go to the Reliable Robin Roberts where I need to pitch the last 3 innings of a game without giving up a hit or run.
1st Attempt: First pitch is a source low and away that is hit for a homerun by Castellanos
2nd Attempt: First pitch is a curve in the dirt that is hit for a homerun by Castellanos
3rd Attempt: I intentionally walk Castellanos and pitch to Winker. Change up low and in the dirt that is hit for a homerun.
I can strike out 13 in a row one Moment and the next I can't but an out.
Hopefully I can skip this one and still get him; otherwise I'm not even trying.

Ahhhh. I remember this moment too well. Stroman would literally throw me everything but a strike and it would force me to swing at [censored] just so I could keep the at bat alive. Fun times!

Thanks
Normaly i don't have a problem even on All Star just no patiencethis evening, it's ok though I'm going to run Felix (my fourth pitcher) at them tomorrow when I have more time and can actually run the pitchers count up. It's all I need for Ryan Zimmerman anyway.

All i can say about that moment is just keep at it, took me 5 trys and i was annoyed on the 4th attempt, i was perfect until the last batter of the 9th drilled a home run to right field. I did get it done on the 5th attempt, i think i pitched around the heart of the Reds order because I knew I couldn't get anything past Castellanos/Winker.
My best suggestion though is go slow and listen to your catchers suggestions.

How were the Zimmerman ones?

If it's in the dirt then it is impossible to hit a HR, unless you were accidently playing cricket.

It took me an impossible amount of time to complete the 8 TB moment. Probably close to an hour and a half of game time split over 3 different sittings. Then finally I went HR, single, HR and it was done. Opened a beer after that one for sure.

No individual moment has ever taken me longer than that Clemente HR at Forbes.
Think the whole Turner program took me approx 1 and a half hours.
The one last night (Zimmerman) took me about an hour
Turner despite his stats has zero pop. The POTM card he has was 50x better than the sig garbage.

If I learned anything from the Turner program it's that I don't need to waste my time trying him out on the team.

I've got 2 moments left to do, the get on base 2 time and get 3 hits in one game. Should gwt it done tonight. The other moments weren't that bad. He has decent pop so just wait for somthing over the plate.

I was able to do a Triple, Single, HR on this one.

Just do the exchanges and you can skip (2) of the moments, including that one. Turner moments were the worst this year for me. He's terrible.

I found the Zimmerman moments were pretty easy (for Moments), his swing is like butter for me.
Funny, I was down 32 against the Nats at one point as well due to Soto going off, but managed to come back.

I managed to win the 9 inning game on my second attempt last night pitching with Felix. Won 21 thanks to a Tim Anderson 2 run homer. The National that kills me every time is Josh Bell. It's like Blackmon last year he hits everything out.

I normally don't have a much trouble with moments and Turner wasn't too bad. Was not liking Zimmerman at all...single or fly out, but all were still somewhat easy. I was going to skip the 8 total bases one until I remembered someone around the forum suggested turning on directional for 8 total base missions and to point up and in...then wait for a pitch on the inner half. I used power swing also. That 8 total base mission turned into one of easier moments I have seen. Thanks to whoever was talking about that the other day.
