I was thinking that my age is catching up to me all at once, so glad to see that it may be a slider adjustment on the back end... I'm playing on All Star this run through, and I'm only 8-6 (on that level, I had been finishing seasons with as many or fewer losses). Players I've been crushing it with are sometimes swinging right through pitches with timing just on the early side of perfect, but those players also have less than stellar Vision ratings (Robert, Witt Jr., Dunn). I use analog timing, so I'm wondering if that's playing a larger role in swing-and-miss determination now.
Honestly, I love it. It's harder, and that's what I want; I'm probably in lonely territory on this, but I like to see real-ish baseball results, and sometimes you just plain swing through it, and not every well-timed, squared up ball is a no-doubt HR. Anyway, it's a welcome change from my perspective... just wish they'd offer a choice of 5 inning games and include a season-stats page. I'd buy a hundred dollars in stubs just to say thanks
