    Yea its just too hard on the higher difficulty levels to get multiple hits. So when you get a hit, it needs to be a HR.

    That’s if you have multiple runners on base.

    I just hit L2 once and my controller vibrates and then he goes on first movement.

    I usually hold it down until I feel the controller vibrate.

    Took on Valenzuela again on my break. Went into it down 15-5, got it back to 15-12 with two on and 3 outs to go. Proceed to jam everything on the next 3 ABs.

    Thinking about selling my Arenado and Piazza in order to have enough stubs to get Acuña. He got a big bump in the roster update. Thoughts?

    You better hurry. I bought Acuna a couple days ago at like 158k, he was 180k last I looked.

    sitting on a couple Buxton cards, not sure how high the market will take him though

    Arenado was downgraded so his price is only going to go down as he's going to be in more packs as a low diamond than he was as a high diamond.

    This guy hit 9 HR yet somehow I won. 14 total HR in the game. Trout tripled to lead off the 9th. Tied game on sac fly. Piazza walked it off with a wall scraper with 2 outs.

    Gallo is a cheat code on lower difficulty when the PCI is big. His PCI is the size of a pea once it goes up though lol.

    Are you guys aware of any good create a player guides? Especially to create fictional players like Crash Davis, Ricky Vaughn, Mel Clark, Chet Steadman, Bobby Rayburn, etc. Kinda have an urge to make a fictional players team to run through a season or something like that.

    Yup, it's the speed that gets me with him. Takes so long for his swing to load, it's like you need to press the button before the pitcher releases the ball.

    Yordan was the first 42 card I got. In an event now, 2-2 with 3 ribs and a homer.

    I'm sure there's probably something out there, I'll just have to go searching. I remember there were (and probably still is) a plethora of sites for the wrestling games. Figure surely if people are making accurate recreations of college football teams there's someone out there making these guys on The Show, I'm just not patient or talented enough to be the one to do it.

    Also add Yasmani to that list. His speed is one but that's all you need as you circle the bases.

    Just played probably the most frustrating game I've had this year. I had 4 perfect/perfect outs in the 1st 3 innings. 2 of them were double plays. Meanwhile he had 5 straight ground ball hits. Not rockets, just weak ground balls that found holes. Ripken hit a 3 run HR for him that sounded like a perfect perfect and went 800 feet... but the PCI showed literally none of the ball was in the main area and he was borderline very early. Just a shit random game. Beyond frustrating.

    Those weak grounders are top three annoying things for me. Other is the perfect perfect contact you mentioned, finally they let chlamydia drip singles through but you could hit a rocket back at the pitcher and he suddenly has NHL goaltender like reflexes. That pisses me off the most.

    Finally beat Valenzuela! Went in 15-9, Piazza cranks a 2 run HR right off the bat, then with about 10 outs left Pollack hits a grand slam to tie it up. Get down to three outs, Dominic Smith steps up and gets all of a first pitch screwball for the walkoff win.

    Yea thats enough for me tonight. Next game was a billion bloopers and ground balls for hits too. If I play someone that's putting gold swings in and getting hard contact, it is what it is. But man when it's terrible PCI and timing and they find holes constantly it's just frustrating. That's just pure luck going against you. I know I get them at times too but I don't feel like I've ever had then strung together over and over and over like they have the last 2 games.

    There's 3 common players in the AL central live series collection that don't have a buy option. feels like people played the daily moment with feller and went after that collection and there's not enough of those particular cards to go around. crazy I've got 1000 buy orders on all 3... just need those and a couple 20k diamonds for feller

    I’ll save you time, you don’t have any extras.
    They are new to the game, just made their 40 man. That means the cards not widely available which is why they are selling for 1000 a piece for a common.

    There’s a tab called events on the online play. Your squad needs to meet certain parameters to enter. Biggest pain in the ass is if your team exceeds the max rank, you’ll have to take out some higher rated players to hit the overall rank. Right now it’s NL pitchers. AL hitters.
