Just played the most typical "the show" game ever

SDS

Just lost to a guy 5-4. The dude struck out 16 times in 8 innings (didn't hit in the 9th because he was the home team) and hit 4 balls hard the entire game. But 3 of those were HR and he ended up with 5 runs on 7 hits.

He had one stretch where he had a "weak" contact hit with his pitcher, then a late/ok double with two outs to extend the inning, and then hit a 3-run HR with Alonso.

But after all that I had a chance to tie with 95 speed Xavier Edwards on third. He throws a slider to the backstop and this is called out:

So a baseball with slider spin hits the dirt, bounces STRAIGHT BACK, hits the backstop, and then bounces STRAIGHT BACK towards home plate.

SDS can suck a fat one at this point. This game is nothing but crossing your fingers and hoping the RNG goes in your favor.

Wow , it’s ok I won a game 2-1 just now. 21 of my 27 outs were good okay contact and I just chuckled because of where the ball was in the pci.

SDS

Started a new game and in the first two innings my opponent has two late/ok base hits including one with his pitcher

SDS

That's ok because I just had a perfect flyball that was a 91mph exit velo for a routine fly out

SDS

Pro-tip: in very rare instances it is actually viable to bring a runner home on a passed ball. Like a slow roller with a deep backstop and Rickey Henderson on 3rd. One out of ten in those you shall score. The quick backstop bounce throw to first dropped 3rd strike has saved me many times 🙂

SDS

Just had 1st and 2nd no outs. But apparently a good/squared up swing with 108mph exit velo means a double play ball right at the SS.

Seriously...does anybody really believe skill is the biggest factor in determining outcome any more?

SDS

Opponent just had back-to-back late/ok hits to go up 1-0

SDS

Just gave up an early swing HR...

Ya and that's ridiculous. The fact that you can't score from third on a majority of Wild pitches is pathetic. How is that even remotely realistic?

Bob Barker, don't take this the wrong way, but maybe concentrate on the game and not posting on the forum about your current game. Yes, the game will always have issue. That won't ever change. I promise you that.

Dude I cannot believe that video. Did they register the tag on the head or something?! He’s literally safe! Furthermore, if he just goes in head first, he’s safe by even more! Anyone know how to always go head first to home? Seems to never work for me. They always do that dumb “slide past the plate” thing

What's the point of concentrating on the game when my use input is about the 10th thing down the list of what determines the outcome

I don't know man. I'm so beyond frustrated right now. I feel like my input means absolutely nothing right now

You got an army of people with you believing the same thing. You're not alone.

I know pitching and hitting is random from game to game. That’s why I can only play one or two games a day. But still, posting and playing would make it difficult to play.
