Advice on AL West Showdown run

SDS

I've made it to the Ohtani Boss Mission with the score 8-15. So I need 8 runs. I think 7 is the most I've ever scored agains Verlander. However, that was with more RH bats than LH bats.

My current lineup is as follows:
LS Dee Gordon
LS Danny Santana
LS Yordan Alvarez
LS Justin Upton
FOTF Ohtani
LS Shin-Soo Choo
LS Tommy La Stella
LS Kyle See her
LS Kiner-Falefa (Common catcher. Can probably sub in one of my bench: All righties though. LS Mateo, LS Semien, LS Simmons, LS Andrus, and LS Ponder)

That's 6 ladies, 1 switch, and 2 righties.

Would you jump into Verlander, down 8 with this lineup? Or would you risk it and try to play out to get more players/runs?

I can say the ONE time I beat Ohtani, I lost to the next 3 bosses. And the ONLY reason I played is because I messed up in earlier matchups and only had 5 or 6 runs.

If it helps, my perks are the Silver AND Gold Heart Attacks: Contact Boost while Losing and the Bronze Defribillator which gives contact boost on 0-0, 1-1, and 2-2 counts.

6 ladies sounds like more than enough lol.

Personally I would skip Ohtani. But it depends on how good a player you are if you can beat Verlander down 15-8.

I was just quoting you!

I think the better question is how much pitching did you draft that your team still looks like that

You have a pretty solid lineup but personally I would probably try to beat Ohtani. I got all the AL West affinities to 70 through showdown and I only played Ohtani when I didn’t have Olson, Gallo, Trout, or Cahna. Those 4 make Verlander really easy IMO

SDS

I would jump right into Verlander unless you have no trouble vs Ohtani. I find Verlander is much easier

Take it this way, you think it’ll be easier to get 4runs with 10 outs vs Ohtani or 8 runs in 20 outs vs Verlander?
