So did they change something? I had a 2.00 ERA with Degrom over 70 innings pitched. Not a lot of innings I know but seeing as how I only play Events and BR it’s a pretty decent sample size compared to most of my pitchers. Yet over the last week and a half degrom has just been getting NUKED for me. I still barely scratch across any runs against him but now all the sudden he’s giving up all these TERRIBLE PCI homeruns lately! Like I mean it’s almost been one an inning! His ERA has shot up to 3.4 in just 10 extra games started. It’s always on contact swings too. (which I thought they had fixed) Their PCI is like half the size of the batters box and they’ll barely get the ball in it and bam it’s GONE. Then when I’m up to bat I use normal swing and I square balls up with good timing that’s a ball hair from being perfect-perfect yet nothing.
Is contact swing still that overpowered or am I just running into some bad variance here? It’s so frustrating now because I honestly don’t have a single pitcher anymore that I feel strongly confident in like I used too. I just don’t understand why it feels like the mechanics of this game are constantly changing. I enjoy it so much but it confuses the [censored] outta me!
Edit: The only answer I can think of is just that the player pool has gotten much stronger over the past month due to the fair weather players jumping to Madden or whatever. But that still doesn’t explain the [censored] ton bad HR’s that I’ve been seeing lately. I know that they’ve always been there but not this frequently!
