Is it better to suck at the game? Well it certainly hasn't resulted in anything positive for me. I am easily among the worst online, and I routinely get matched up against guys that are 200 games over .500 with lineups full of guys with .400 avg 80 HR and get stuck facing Ryan or Degrom every single time.
Then when I get those rare moments where I get a lead either my opponent instantly quits, or the AI decides "darkblue rally stinks, so we will start gifting this other guy hits so he wins." I will then start having pitches despite perfect release point start going all over the place, resulting in a couple of gift walks, forcing me to go further into the zone and sure enough, BAM! Towering, no doubt 400 foot bomb for the other guy.
