    Yeah I probably put too much priority on defense. The big thing I hate is low reaction. I can't stand a ball hit to the OF and my guy is slow getting started or takes a step in the wrong direction.

    I changed my team name to "Hey let's throw fastballs only" and then I just pitch people fastballs online. some reciprocate, some don't. I have fun either way. It's extra fun beating a team full cheesing by throwing nothing but straight fastballs with 88 Carlos Rodon

    Dodgers called up some random nobody so of course when I pulled Bellinger a few days ago I couldn't complete their LS set and he was so new nobody had his card for sale. Finally pulled him today out of a basic pack. Just need Acuna, Cole, and Trout to finish off the collection.

    LOL, god I love this fucking stupid game.

    So, got my Cespedes under the wire last before the first event ended. Didnt get a chance to unload him until later and it was like an insane drop which got to the point where I wasnt going to waste my time being low man. So I held on and sold him for 150k this evening.

    Going on vacation Monday and won't be able to play which was a deciding factor. Hopefully when I get back I can buy him for much less.

    Last weekend I played a ton since I was home solo, then I worked like 10+ hours a day....screen time must be taking a toll on my ability to beat these TA3 showdowns as quick as I was lol still beating them but I am hitting like a complete clown.

    I just need one more point for NL West but I’ve completed with Exchange collections and nothing but events. Jumped into my nation conquest map and took me extra innings on two rookie games to win. I have zero timing. Need to play one today I’m just going to play AS.

    I have been trying to do one of the 4pt moments to finish it off just for ease. Im definitely going to need to get some real ABs under my belt again after all this CPU

    I kind of just loaded my teams up with the players that had missions. When I finished up I only used players from what was left. They have kickers in there for different missions.

    Also, fastest way for me to complete Events is to lose the first game I play. Use your worst pitcher. You basically get matched up with 3 terrible players in a row. 4/5 is a toss up, six and up are good.

    Trae Turner mashes, but he is so bad on defense. He’s made 3 errors for me already and watched him make 2 errors for others. Also played a guy who’s Mullins dropped a routine fly ball.

    Lol I’m doing all the TA on Events I experienced my catcher sailing first on dropped third strikes so many times. Posted on here but I had 5 Ks one inning as a result. Also had the OF drop more than one ball. I believe Chris Taylor was completely underneath a ball and didn’t even put his arm up. Also Walsh just flat out dropped like 5 balls in random outs to first. It’s really fucking dumb.

    Thinking about trying Turner at 2B because I don’t hit well with Jackie but will most likely keep him at a bench bat/pinch runner

    First event game with Ohtani and he got rocked. His control is a little rough and I guess it got worse as his confidence dropped. Every other game though he's done pretty well. Still hitless with him but probably just because I'm trying too much.

    Sold off all my HRD and ASG investments and I'm stub rich again. Really want to try out that 99 Vlad but it's hard to justify paying the 250k stubs when I'm hitting .400 with the 99 Prince.

    Anyone used the 99 Vlad or Peralta?

    Heyyyyy finished the 4th Inning Program tonight and got Trout as final reward. Feels good, replenishes completely the stubs I spent finishing off the All-Star collection. Sold him immediately, because I'm sure lots of folks will get him.

    Just had a game where I had 4 k's to his 14. He had 11 hits to my 3 and won 5-1 lol. Half had to be ground balls between SS and 3b. Everything found a hole.

    Had a ranked game last night Cabrera vs Cabrera on the mound. After the 3rd, no one had any hits and it was not fun at all so I offered a friendly and he declined. I started to notice he was throwing everything down in the zone so I just started sitting low with my PCI and guessing. Ended up scoring 3 runs in the 7th or 8th. Finished the game 3-0 and my Cabrera had 21 K's. Felt good but still not fun at all.
