Knuckleballers

SDS

Just faced a clown that used both knuckleballers. Thankfully I ended up beating him 7-0 and made him quit in the 7th inning, but SDS needs to do something about these glitches that shouldn't be in the game. Especially Stephen Wright, he got suspended for domestic violence and it's a bad look to still have him in the game.

We would be missing a lot of top tier players if that was the case.

That's all you took out of my post? These knuckleballers either need to be removed from the game entirely, or be completely revamped so they're not as effective.

SDS

Yeah that part is played out and been discussed many times. That is why only the live series crappy ones are on here now and are very easy to hit. Your PCI is so big against them it is on you if you cannot hit them. Sure it isnt fun, but they are part of the MLBPA so, they are here.

For DV, here's a list of people who also would no longer be in the game...

  1. Aroldis Chapman (a lot of people like using his card!)
  2. Jose Reyes
  3. Hector Olivera
  4. Jeurys Familia
  5. Derek Norris
  6. Roberto Osuna
  7. Addison Russell
  8. Odubel Herrera
  9. Julio Urias

The message of this post is not that players who have been suspended for DV should get removed from the game, but that the knuckleballers should either be removed from the game or revamped.

SDS

I actually wish they would bring back Tiant and Niekro. And no I don’t use a knuckleballer this year. I did at first, but decided against. Just because I hate hearing people [censored] about it.

I’d rock Tiant for sure though.

Then why'd you include the DV in your original message if it actually doesn't matter to you? You literally said it's a bad look to have a player who got suspended for DV.

Honestly you're right. It wasn't the main point of the post and shouldn't have been brought up at all. I'm just frustrated that these knuckleballers are in the game and are allowed to be easily exploited.

What glitch? You pounded him for 7 runs lmao

It's like half of you have no clue what a freaking knuckleball is or looks like, that players make careers out of it, some all star or hall of fame, or that Stephen Wright made a career for himself with it including an all-star appearance.

The fact is many don't hit the knuckle because their timing sucks with it, and most others can't put the PCI on it. You barrel that thing up it flies, like you did! LOL

Yeah maybe saying they should be removed from the game is a bit strong, but they should be at least nerfed a bit so they aren't so easily exploited.

There is no exploit.

Your PCI is the size of a watermelon vs Wright.

People suck with their timing and suck with PCI placement because of the movement. That's not exploit. That's bad hitting.

Time your swing and put the PCI on it and you pound the ball.

Be patient don't swing at the first pitch every time like everyone does vs them.

You also get free SBs all game.

You scored 7 runs in 7 innings, no idea what exploit you speak of or what you are crying about.

SDS

Or if you have trouble with zone and pci placement, you could try directional. Whenever a knucklballer comes in the game I just switch to that for 3 batters. Just aim up and hit x

I would love to see a Tiant. One of my favorite players from that era, but there’s no shot he’s released considering we didn’t see him or Niekro at all last year either

Crazy how 8 out of those 10 are Hispanic.

Wright is easy to crush. However, I think Feirabend is pretty tough to hit. The lefty's KB dances more than Neikro's ever did. Seems that way to me anyway.

Yeah but your PCI is the same as the strikezone. SO just hold it there and crush it. I think i can still throw a better KB then Feirabend actually. IF my nails are ok that day. When you get old nails become a day to day project.
