I beg you SDS, DO NOT do Randy Johnson dirty like you did Pedro

SDS

I have always been completely indifferent about Pedro simply because he was a complete punk on the mound (as I get older, I can now respect it more)....but his card was basically unusable last year. For arguably one of the greatest pitchers of all time with one of the better pitch selections you could have in this game, it's an absolute shame they didn't give him cracked out attributes to make up for his hittable pitching motion.

With that said, I am sincerely hoping SDS does not drop the ball when it comes to Randy. At this point I have no idea what to expect, only time will tell!

They didn’t “do Pedro dirty”. He just didn’t get a no-hitter card and has an easy to read delivery (which isn’t on SDS). The meta for pitching in this game is way too reliant on outlier, delivery, and certain pitches (outside of the per 9s) and pitchers that don’t have those struggle.

True overall he comes in as the 24th best pitcher in this game, bringing him back into the game for the first time since his retirement they should have given him a 99 CY card or a 'Prime' card for those 4 years he was borderline the best pitcher to ever step on a mound. You may not agree, but seeing his per 9's it was pretty underwhelming....no reason he should not have been in conversation for best pitcher in the game.

I completely agree with you. Pedro is my all time favorite and him and Randy were by far the top 2 pitchers of his generation.

If SDS didn't want to give him outlier, fine (even though they gave it out to other pitchers that didn't throw harder than Pedro)

But why not a 120-125 H/9??
A 102 H/9 is a joke. Especially when they already knew [censored] well he'd be hittable without outlier.

Like there's no excuse for that.

Two questions:

  1. Was this Pedro's first year in the game?

  2. Does SDS ever drastically change a player's attributes year over year? Meaning, could Pedro be improved next year by a wide margin or is it likely he'll be the same each year?

I can’t remember him being in the game. Atleast not since 2016.

And they can definitely come back next year giving him a Cy Young, Prime or Milestone card that would likely have much higher attributes (which will likely happen). It was just surprising they didn’t do that his first year.

I pitched pretty well with Gibson online in the beginning. He should be a lot better though since he actually changed the game of baseball by lowering the mound down.

Good call. Best pitching season ever arguably

Online is too dependent on sinkers, outliers, and delivery slingshotting/warping. That's why Cabrera was so dominant early -- he had all 3.
