Well, I gave in and ordered a new tv with better input lag, a TCL 4 series.
First ranked game just now I went 7.1 with Glavine, gave up one run, and scored 5, with three bombs.
I wouldn’t say the difference is mind-numbing, I mean I was still late on a few fastballs. I also crushed a few and was able to get the PCI on pitches I normally would not. The most surprising difference was it was easier to hit my spot pitching with analog.
I would say there is definitely something to be said for playing this game on a monitor or something with equivalent input lag specs, so if you are struggling...
