Hitting kluber at HoF and legend

SDS

So, I have seen kluber a ton. I started off using strike zone this year, and that made kluber look like the best pitcher to ever step foot in the league. So, I switched to strike zone high. Now, kluber and almost every other pitcher feels super hittable. I’m not saying you’re going to put up 15 a game off of him, but you’re gonna figure him out a lot quicker. The first game I saw him after switching I forced 75 pitches through 3 innings and put up 10 runs in the game. I’m not sure how many people hit in strike zone, but strike zone high definitely helps, especially with the speed change on sinkers and change ups and the low slurves and cutters. Just don’t let people get to Rollie fingers. He’s so much better than he was last year.

Kluber 99 is a tease. Velo and HR/9 are too low, so you get plenty of time to square up and when you do... boom every time. I grabbed Fingers instead.

I find that it sometimes helps to switch your batting camera to sort of 'refresh' your batting eye.

You're not playing Ranked in the 700+ regions are you? Kluber on HOF and Legend is extremely tough.

He can’t be. Otherwise he’d have taken kluber. I’ll take fingers when I get there.

HR/9 has no effect in online. It's only for simulations like franchise.

I've done this in the past and it helped me briefly. I started chasing high too often so reverted.

SDS

HR /9 is a totally useless stat in my opinion . If I get a perfect perfect off newhouser which has 99 stat for HR/9 it’s a homer pretty much every time

Well considering there was a patch last year specifically removing HR/9 from online play after first adding it in 19(they talked about adding it in a pre-19 stream), and they again made a point in a pre-release stream this year that HR/9 is simulation only, i’m guessing HR/9 is simulation only

Yes, during the Dev tournament they confirmed that HR/9 still does nothing in game. It was removed halfway through the year last year because everyone hated it.

Stamina has an effect on gameplay, but that is fairly obvious so I can see why you forgot to mention it. Discipline I believe has an effect on how effective you are at check swinging, even though check swings have been broken. The only unknown is clutch. No one has ever had proof that it does or doesn't have an effect on the game

Its hard to prove too. I can say it does from my experience, but that may just be coincidence. My highest clutch is my pinch hitter and after a 100 AB sample, he is the highest OPS on my team because I only bring him in in "clutch" situations (runners on base, down runs, late innings). So I tend to believe its factored in, but who knows if its just because he is also one of my best hitters. I wish they would just come out and say what are all factored in and what are not.
