BULLPEN BLOWS EVERYTHING!

SDS

I am in complete shock ... 5 games in a row, I have either the lead or a tie in all. EVERY TIME WITHOUT FAIL, my opponent hits at LEAST 2 homers and takes the lead! Mind you, I have Lee, Wood, Garrett, Pressley, Osuna, Rodgers. AND LITERALLY EVERY ONE GETS ABSOLUTELY SHELLED. I'm a decent pitcher too, Im consistently able to hold opponents to 3 runs or less ... Before the [censored] 7th...

Same here. I invested a lot of stubs in my BP now and it seems to be paying off. I think about 2/3 of my ERA is by the pen.

(I also wish I hadn’t began RS the night of launch) would have about 4 less L’s. Think I went 4-4 launch night

Can I make a suggestion?

  1. high pitching clutch, anyone under 80 shouldn't be in your bullpen, it actually has a huge effect this year.

  2. stop quick pitching, your pitchers lose control a lot when you quick pitch from the stretch, I don't know if thats by design or not, but as soon as I started coming to a complete stop I was locating better.

  3. Stop overthrowing, if you max out the meter when throwing your pitch it will go all over the place, and leads to a lot of perfect release hangers, Over throwing cost me at least 5 games this year until some trial and error made me realize that halfway up the meter is about perfect for locating on perfect releases.

This has worked for me, thought I would pass it a long.

Every single person in your pen is prone to hanging their cutters, sinkers and sliders. They’re the type of guys I see and know I’m about to storm right back in.

Can y'all provide some suggestions for bullpen arms then? My guys mostly have clutch over 80, with good mix and velocity. Thought that'd be enough. I know there are only a few diamonds to get.

Wood and Rivera have been very solid for me, surprisingly so has the silver Vida Blue, Giles is definitely solid.

If I see wood or Rivera I’m know I’m scoring multiple runs, so it is opponent based.

Chapman LS - evolution eck - SS Franco - osuna and even the Amir garret moment care is
Pretty good on a budget. Chapman is the main card I want to give the ball to out of my pen which is stacked atm

All I know is they work well for me, I have yet to give up a hit with either of them. I think it's all about how comfortable you are with the pitchers wind up and know how to use the pitch's. Same as certain batters, people have success with certain hitters that I don't.

I had a recent loss where my bullpen gave up 5 solo hrs in the bottom of the 9th.

I was up 6-2 and my opponent had 3 hits vs Oswalt with 2 of them being solo Hrs over 8 innings. Get to 9th and put Rivera in the game. I get 1 fly out and now just have 2 outs to go. My opponent hits 3 solo Hrs. I then put Amir Garrett in and he gives up another 2 for me to lose 7-6. My two relievers gave up 5 straight hrs on about 10 pitches. If the ball even sniffed a little bit of the plate he hit it for a HR.

Yeah this is exactly what happens to me. Even if I put a pitch in a perfect spot, barely in the zone, bye bye ... 700ft.

I win most games that I go into the 7-9th innings trailing. I lose most games I go into the 7-9th winning. If you have a lead in the 8th or 9th and you inexplicably make an error or a random bloop hit just over the infield, or even an infield hit you're likely going to give up a home run to the next batter.
