Postseason batting issues

SDS

Anybody experiencing a huge drop off in good contact or timing issues in postseason. I had zero issues all season, got 112 wins with the mariners on all star difficulty. And am now in alcs scraping by getting maybe 1-2 hits per game. Every ball off the bat no matter the location or swing timing is like a soft shallow fly ball or a weak ground ball. I got a 95+ fastball middle plate, belt high to Eugenio Suarez and it was almost perfect timing, pop out to shallow left center.

Wondering if it’s just me because this is uncanny how weak these bats got out of the blue. I’ve even dropped difficulty to veteran for a game and noticed no difference in contact. Timing for off-speed pitches seems there is no “good” swing timing even though when I look at replays my barrel is almost parallel with the front edge of the plate when I make contact.

It could be just a small sample size or it could be that you’re going against higher rates pitchers. Most moments in MTO are late in the game against relievers (usually non closers). So, you’re contact is worse because of the other pitchers ratings.

Also, I hope you know you can’t go back up in MTO. So, you have to finish and get veteran rewards.

Hadn’t thought about that. Thank ya and yeah I know I can’t go back up but at the rates I’m swinging I won’t make it out the ALCS. I hit well usually but my pitching is not great on all star so now that I can’t hit I’m suffering
