Posada moments

SDS

Have to vent a bit.
Multigame moments of his are pure cancer. Every hit is weak and caught. Pitchers have unlimited confidence and commentators are aholes. "Good hit towards right middle, it is....it IS... caught by outfielder.

Thought getting on base would be easy but no, at 3-1 they locate corners better then ever....

And Posada has noodlearms.

SDS

Iโ€™ve struggled with other guys moments, but honestly all of his were a piece of cake for me. I finished his 5 game moments in 3-4 games pretty easily. He had surprisingly good pop for me.

Sorry to hear youโ€™re struggling. I just used normal swing and tried to work the counts best I could. Idk maybe I was just seeing ball really well for once lol.

SDS

Look, I hate to be "that guy" but these were the easiest things to do so far in this game. And this is coming from a guy who has took 28 attempts to complete the second inning showdown, and 30+ attempts on other showdowns to only complete three others.

SDS

Im glad you found it easy, and its good. I just needed to vent a bit ๐Ÿ™‚

SDS

Ya sorry man...but I too was hitting bombs an gappers with him...maybe the stance doesn't work for u like bagwells doesn't work for me but posada fn rakes for me

SDS

Yea, i just need to redo it and learn his stqnce and swing. Its not as infuriating as Kaline moments. And its not even close as hard as J. Robinson moments.
Thats why I like to vent here, guys like you pop out and give me confidence that i can do it ๐Ÿ™‚

As for Bagwell....i like Him but i can't hit with him to save my life.

SDS

I'm struggling with them and I found Kaline and Robinson relatively easy. I can't get any power on anything. Even squared up power swings die on the track.

SDS

Did them all on the first try and I am by no means good. Just normal swing and sit on low inside fastballs. He is a dead pull hitter based on his shift, so just try to be a pull hitter

Hm, thanks for a tip. Ill give it a try ๐Ÿ™‚
And Im below good...:)

If you're not using it already Directional hitting/Normal swing is your friend for these moments bud. As others have stated it's bomb after bomb with this card from both sides of the plate. The one where you play against the Mets I took 2 walks and hit 6 home runs, it was crazy.

Embarassed to say, but I dont know how to use directional hitting ๐Ÿ™‚ Switched to zone in 17 and dont know how to work with directional anymore

Just wait for a pitch in the zone and time it up. No aiming involved.

Understood, I'm a zone hitter as well but for any of these moments I'll switch to directional just to get them over with. Even cards with limited power like gold Jackie Robinson magically discover their power stroke with directional hitting.

Anyway switch to directional and hold the stick straight up to influence a fly ball and just wait for something up in the zone and time it properly then watch it fly and then wonder why you don't use directional all the time ๐Ÿ™‚

It never fails, no matter what Moment or Showdown someone is having trouble with someone else will come into the thread to tell them how easy it was for them. I am sure that many are trying to be encouraging but most of the time it comes off as bragging and is not really useful.

I did not have as many problems with the multi game Posada moments as I thought I would. I struggled mightily on the 7 total bases mission though. Everything was a pop up of a line out during that mission.

If dashboarding wasn't a thing then I am pretty sure that I would almost never get a multi game moment done. I am too streaky. I really do hate multi game moments though. The mechanics of how they actually work in the game are annoying. Exiting to the menu after every game, not being able to restart even the first game without exiting back to the menu and resetting the whole moment. It is just a pain.

SDS

Anything Veteran or below I just used power swing and he would absolutely hit bombs. I think the moment that requires 8 hits 4 of mine were HRs. Heโ€™s got an awkward stance though so it might be throwing you off a bit

Thanks for everyone.

SDS

Strangely I hit nothing but line drive singles using power swings with posada, but hit plenty of home runs and doubles with the regular swing. From my experience, Iโ€™d say use the normal X swing and wait for the meatballs

SDS

Got them all done last night...The rookie missions were the hardest. I can't for the life of me hit on Rookie. flew through the Veteran and All-Star but I'll be damned if I can't hit on Rookie.

SDS

What annoys me about these moments is that every game starts the same way. Posada is in the 2-hole, and LeMahieu is on third with no outs. Has no impact on the game, it's just lazy.

SDS

Pop up fest for me. Maybe I donโ€™t like his stance or swing but Kalineโ€™s were a piece of cake compared to these. I cant hit [censored] with Posada.

SDS

Kaline multi moments went easy for me, but i can't remember what single game moment it was, but it took me around an hour to finish. Was fuming after that one ๐Ÿ˜„

SDS

Posada's moment had some frustrating times, but he had a little more pop for me than others

SDS

Yeah, I switched to directional, struggle too much with that card. And I did the exchanges instead of one of the multiple game moments.

It was cheaper yesterday, catcher prices are up obviously.

Glad I have it done for 2nd inning points. But I'll never use the card. I have plenty of Yankees and would rather use Diamond Sanchez if I do need Yankees innings.

SDS

I am not a great player I would even say a below average player. I do have really good games sometimes but most of the time its a one run win. I actually am pretty bad with kluber. My first onlione game against him he got tagged for 4 runs in the first 2 innings. But I have to say these moments have been easy for me. Posada mashes like Lou an Jimmy mashed everything last year. Normally I dread hitting home runs as a moment but I found it very easy to get perfect perfect with him in several moments. Although I had a perfect liner right to the outfielder.

Also had kris davis make a diving grab to a sinking liner in left center field that he would never make in real life but that is just beating a dead horse at this point.

SDS

I cruised through the Kaline moments and didnโ€™t have too much trouble with Jackie except for the 2 doubles. I cruised through the first four of Posada but the multi game ones are giving me trouble. I hit fine most of the time and then just hit a rut where I fly out deep repeatedly and Iโ€™ve come up one hit short several times.

To me, the Posada card is a perfect example of this game. I get plenty of hits swinging left handed (where he has more power) but canโ€™t do much right handed (where he has more contact).

Reading this thread, I gave directional a try and itโ€™s still not helping. Tell me how you can use directional, have good timing on a swing and completely swing through the pitch? How is that even possible? I timed it up, which is all I can do as a hitter in directional.

Also, the Mariners lefties throw so [censored] slow. Iโ€™m early on everything. And, again, it would be nice if the CPU would occasionally throw strikes. Tired of walking when the 4th ball isnโ€™t even anywhere close to the zone to swing
