I dislike Ranked Seasons. I hate playing against and with all diamond squads. I am only attempting to endure it in The Show 19 to get to 800 and therefore the platinum trophy as I achieved the plats in 17 and 18 and will achieve the 20. Stupid reason, I know.
I got up to ranking 678 or so and then started losing big time. 8 in a row.... now my last 10 out of 11. I’m now down to 421 again and I really don’t want to put myself through more of it, but for that shiny platinum...
I would like any suggestions those people better than me can share. I am finding myself unable to get hits with runners on base anymore. I’m also popping out a lot. A serious amount. It’s driving me insane. I used to start with PCI high and follow the ball, but I read advice that I need to focus more on predicting location rather than following the ball so I’m trying to do that more. In doing that I think I’ve messed myself up and I’m not being as patient anymore.
I’ve made some changes to my line up, which I hoped would help. I moved Baez back to hitting second which he was before the slump, and in my last two games he hit a homer first time up. So that’s something that worked, but other changes haven’t had any success.
Also this isn’t to do with me being bad, but one thing I’ve noticed is every time on a wild pitch that gets past the catcher with a runner on third, much like sticking to the highways sending the runner is suicide. They seem to jog to home and are tagged out by the pitcher. Every freaking time. Has anybody ever had luck getting that runner home on a wild pitch? I’ve stopped sending them because the out is inevitable.
Thanks in advance to anybody who is willing to offer advice.
