    I’d probably be in for the league, I just skimmed like 3 pages of this thread since I haven’t read it since last night.

    Are there any official details? I’ll have to look up my PS name in a bit lol

    My god looking at the TN stuff so I can unlock all the cards. I see a 7IP moment and a 13K moment. Wtf.

    They aren’t generally horrible. One hitter was over multiple games which was probably most annoying. I also don’t get how meadows was given the power card while Winker is balanced? The fucker hit three bombs in a game. Got massively ripped off.

    Laureano one was the worst for me. Dude swings a noodle and I swear it’s Andruw Jones and Kevin Kiermeier’s love child in center

    I just finished the 13K one with Hill took like 10 minutes. I laughed because I thought at least it’s AL so they won’t make me hit…then it made me hit.

    This Vosler dude sucks. Slow ass swing, like 79PWR and the D Backs pitcher is topping out at maybe 86

    Just had one of those "Fuck this game" games. This just a kick to the nuts.

    Down 1, 2 on, this was a lazy fly ball to CF to end the inning.

    PS_App_20210610_024237.jpeg


    This was a double to lead off the next inning.

    I'm trying to catch up on TN moments so I can do the missions for Buxton. Fuck Trevor Bauer so much. I'm trying to do the Tatis HR and literally every pitch that bastard throws is outside. I'm probably just impatient but damn.

    I take back anything bad I said about Bauer and Tatis. Mickey Moniak can take his home run and stick it 400 feet up his ass.

    Been doing it, just can't get it spot on. The few that I've nailed just die at the track. I had to give it up for the night before my controller became collateral damage.

    He's really good and I swear is luck factor is 99. I should probably be hitting like .300 with him but I'm hitting .340 bc he gets so many bloops and bleeders.

    yeah I felt that dropping 200k to get him was expensive but whatever. I’ve decided that I’m not going to buy Acuña because I want the excitement if I ever pack him.

    You had to buy some of the 42 guys? I'm sure I did too, can't remember. Just know I've gotten a few from programs lately. The May POTM program has one at the end. Did that today and too Hank and sold him.

    The bats I can do forever, minus the limp dicks. Pitching they tend to go overboard with IMO. Take winker, has a three homer game and the objective is 8 total bases. I’m not complaining, it’s fine but then why are you making me strike out 13 dudes with Rich fucking Hill? So dumb.

    yeah, I didn’t get a preorder because of Xbox being free. So I got a free 42 with the set that SDS gave after the server meltdowns and then a free one with the may POTM. Bought the other 8 for a combined 198k today.

    I hit way better with Acuna. Struggle mightily with Jackie. Also dblplay1212 i hit really well with Soriano for some reason even though he does have a weird ass swing.

    Yeah the pitching ones seem easier but just take forever. These wouldn’t even be that bad if I didn’t ignore the whole month until now for the POTM stuff.

    Gin Buckets join this and send the link to your friend Fooz to join as well.

    League is full but I'm almost certain we have 2-3 people that bail before the 1st season is over for whatever reason. Feel free to join and take a spot on the wait list

    After being 1 hit when I only k'd 3 times and walked 4 times, next game had to be better. Right?

    No.

    2nd inning, man on 1st, 2 outs, I'm pitching. He hits a rocket to RF but straight at Soriano. He lined it up, had the blue blinking ring around him saying he was locked in, then he had a seizure and the ball goes right past his head to the wall. Luckily man on 1b was slow so he ended up with 2nd and 3rd. #8 batter up so I walked him to get to Crochet. Of course he gets a very early no PCI that dinks over my 1b. Runner from 3b scores but second runner holds at 3b and I get Crochet in a rundown... and Jackie proceeds to throw it over Ortiz and into the stands. Down 2-0, next batter gets a swinging bunt for a hit. Down 3-0.

    I turned the game off. Not turning it back on until Monday.
