All these cards make me say "I can wait to pull this out of a Conquest map".
A few to add;
The CPU never REALLY makes an errant throw in from the OF; and when they "do", by the time it becomes clear that they totally missed their cutoff, there will be someone in place to back it up.
The amount of times- % wise- that an errant pickoff throw... hits the base coach and dies. I mean, it doesn't go wild often, but when it does, hits the base coach about 75% of the time.
Wouldn't mind seeing a middle infielder botch that "quick SS transfer to 2B barehand mid-throw" that starts so many double plays; I mean in this game, almost never in reality.
CF and SS are the "hardest" positions to play- any fielder moving from those to a corner position requiring much less range as a secondary should potentially get a bump to the fielding, not a penalty.
Joey Votto is destroying everything.
I don't like to quit, but if I'm taking an early beating on the back of a 14 inning game, I'll dump out to recover pen.
I also have a puppy who seems to know the difference between when I'm playing a conquest game and when I'm playing another human, and that causes a few quits. Still a very good boy.
Happy New Year!
Darn, getting 3 packs for 9 innings of conquest was not a terrible use of time... because it felt a little generous. If they took it back to one, it's still essentially a pack for a game, I mean, too bad it's not three anymore, but still an okay use of 45 minutes.
It's not just SDS. It was free, and super easy to get, so... yeah.
Yeah, I can't hit to save my life... but .350 out of Brock, with all fields power and the bunt threat to let him whip grounders past drawn up infielders. I'd take 8 more of him, call it a day.
Luzardo has a quick, tight delivery.
("Proud To Be An American" swells in the background, as an eagle flies across a sky lit by fireworks.)
I'd bet on more Run It Back cards before another set of these.
Meh, OK. Just cycle through and add fans, wait a turn. I get it now. Would like to "have enough privileges" to delete my own old post, but sure.
Irrelevant observations that were wrong, but can't be deleted.
Got the HRD pack for full completion... but didn't get enough territories to finish a path goal, so no 8th inning XP?
Assuming a fix over the weekend, though, just putting it out there.
I didn't bother with a photo, but I did pull him out of an HL pack, we'll see if he displaces Larry Walker or not.
It took a few tries, like 10 minutes worth. One gapper for inside the park, one lazy fly ball that drifted out down the line. Easier than homer with Clemente.

Will confirm, fastball plays up, lots of offspeed movement.
