C'mon man, seriously. Runner on third, deep fly to left center in front of the wall. Two perfect throws and my runner is out by two steps.
Next game. Runner on first, ground ball to first, throw pulls shortstop off bag towards right field onto the grass, spin, throw, runner dead by a full step.
These guys are legends and impossible to beat. So ridiculous and maddening.
Without a doubt
I did it.
My second year playing DD I obtained the two biggest stars in the game, Trout and Mantle.
Such a huge accomplishment for me. I am not a great player online, not great at playing the market or flipping, but what I did was exercise patience and found a way to get to the end of this road and I'm happy as hell.
Lots of hours dedicated and stayed my course. If I can do it, anybody can.
Time to put my team to the test again. Love this game.
Terrible idea, takes away the integrity of the at bat. Starting with a fresh count enables me to see pitches and determine what the pitcher is throwing and adjust from there.
I got three perfect, perfect hits in my first game. Two went for HRS and one was a hard groundball lineout.
To me it is because I it means I finished the LS collection and that means something to me.
I finished it tonight after many hours of flipping and investing cards.
I'll never make WS or do anything significant but it's fun to collect these cards and play.
And it usually leads to a missed catch and error. I hate it.
Umm no they are not. Bought 20 and pulled a diamond Charlie Morton. Nothing else
I got Mantle when the new Trout came out. I had 190K and after I began collecting Vouchers for Trout that took me to 220K and made a few stubs by flipping and ended up finishing off the LS.
I got lucky too when the LS prices dropped on guys like Cole, Velander, etc.
Not sure if it's me or what, but just got no hit and never even came close to a hit. Last two games I couldn't barely put a ball in play. I know Im not a great hitter by any means but holy [censored] this is becoming madness.
My opponent managed a meager 3 hits and a run.
I've seen the posts about monitors.....blah,blah,blah. That's great, but I won't sit in a secluded room for 4 hours on a small [censored] TV just to be able to hit. Something is just wrong on any level that two people manage 3 hit and a run in a game.
I don't know, maybe Im wrong, love the game, but online is just a disaster.
Finally met my goal of 1 million stubs and with Kershaw being the reward I was kind of like, well at least I won't waste them. Kind of bummed that it wasn't better.
Oh well, I'll just keep flipping, playing and hoping for Hank 755 milestone card.
Well that was fast, not sure what happened there.
Servers went down again.
Come on this is ridiculous.
Hopefully not sellable otherwise not even worth it. Easier to flip and just get who you want. Been flipping since the companion app came out and have made well over a million stubs and have massive more invested for roster updates.
So buying the new TA4s is simple for who I want and a waste of even trying to grind.
Just one more and I will have completed the Mookie collection.
I was never trying to go after him because I felt I never really needed him for my team but I think he will be needed for the end game collection which I still believe will be the biggest icon in the game, and that is Mr. Henry Aaron.
I'm pretty sure I can provide a challenge as worst hitter. I strike out at least 15 times a game and if I get 4 hits, that's great. I've tried everything and I just never seem to get better but I keep playing because Iike baseball.
I just accept that I suck at this game so it doesn't bother me anymore.
On my journey to collect Mookie, since I think a bigger collection will require him, I decided to spend some stubs on a headliners pack a Miracle happened, I pulled the Jason Kendall.
Never in 3 years have I EVER pulled a headliner.
Best part is it still leaves me over 500K in stubs and I only need about 12 cards to finish the Mookie collection.
I think with my current stub count I'm extremely close.
I just tried flipping. I'm a bit confused how it works, but once I get back to my console maybe that will help.
I'm wondering what my large collection of Topps baseball cards become, if anything.
I have complete collections for the better part of 20 years, all unopened, and obviously not graded.
I'm just wondering now what should I do with them as I get older with nobody to leave them to.
I'm on the first of seven days of no gameplay.
