Roy Oswalt

SDS

Year after year has been terrible for me I'm sitting trying to grind with him for the prestige diamond and this Mf gives up hit after hit. Why did I pick him with the first inning pick?

SDS

What are you throwing with him? A lot of the time when I struggle with a popular card, I'll go seek advice as to what pitches to use and avoid and where to throw them.

SDS

Oswalt is great, sounds like user error.

No sir the same [censored] happened again today when I was using. The first two innings he's good for me then the 3rd inning he can't locate and he leaves pitches right over the plate. Not user error.

SDS

Oswalt was money for me when I made my RS run. I think it’s the way you’re using him probably.

I mix it up but the primary pitches I threw was his FB SL and CH

so you don't use the sinker or curve? sinker's are OP and that curve has got to be used if your opponent is sitting dead red fastball

I agree here. His worst pitch I think is the slider. It hangs too much. I use FB, sinker, 12-6 primarily, some CH and very little slider

I’m not saying you’re wrong about whether or not it’s user error. However, your evidence of it not being user error was another example of you using him, which would only be further evidence of it being user error if others are finding success with him.

SDS

His sinker should be used as his primary, with his slider used the least, and out of zone...

Oswalt has been great for me. I can paint with him better than any of my other current pitchers. Even when I make a mistake it ends up on the paint and a tough pitch to hit. I know every player card is different for every player in how effective they are, but for me Oswalt has been one of my more reliable pitchers with control.

SDS

Oswalt has ben great for me 46 strikeouts in 4 games he is almost untouchable for me. Sounds like your throwing bad pitches with him.

SDS

Oswald and Kluber has led me a good ways so no complaints here

SDS

I agree with you. Oswalt is trash. He was great last year, but not as many people had him. In fact, he was one of my least favorite pitchers to face last year. I think we have all just seen him too much already.

I destroy Oswalt. Every time. I’ve seen him too much. And his 9s aren’t that great, to be honest. He’s probably serviceable below DS. But after that he’s bbq chicken.

That's why you're struggling!

You definitely want to work off the sinker, slider, and the 12-6 curve primarily. Someone with more experience and much better than myself could probably elaborate on this.
