    Tracking pitches a little bit better. Just hit back to back to back jacks in events and made his ass quit. Minoso, Biggio and Mantle all bombs. It was off El Duque too so not like I was crushing some random bronze card. Felt good, now I move up another level and get to look stupid as shit.

    I think I finished a week or two before him. Btw that next events game I faced Hal and his old balls. Lost 2-1 but did get a contact swing homer with Mick. Minor league park.

    Which 90s/early 2ks Yankee would you like to see besides Jeter? It's weird that, other than pitchers, not many stand out as superstars despite the success. Bernie? Tino? O'Neill?

    If you say Leyritz, we're fighting

    Don't really need another Yankee as a Boss bc there was just Mo. Give me Pedro or Manny Ramirez. Or a prime Canseco.

    How many bosses is that for the Braves now? Torre, Chipper, and Maddux? So 3 of 18 lol. 2 more bosses than titles in the last 60 years.

    I think he was Team Affinity. Every team gets one of those each stage. That's where Mattingly came from.

    Bosses were (I think) as follows:
    1st - Helton Oswalt Snider
    2nd - Carter, Feller, Hanley Ramirez
    3rd - Roberts, Chipper, Victorino
    4th - Ellsbury, Torre, King Felix
    5th - Larry Walker, Big Papi, Mo Rivera

    Cobb just got thrown out tagging from 3rd on a fly ball to the CF track. Idk what happened. I turned away to let my dog in. Came back and he was being tagged out at the plate. Fucker had to fall down or something

    Good lord just lost on a walk off to Giambi on a slider below the zone and outside. He golfed it out to the opposite field. Beyond mad right now. Not even good contact, just a long blooper.

    Just played a hilarious game. Keep in mind my average score is like 4-3 or even lower.

    I give up 4 in T4, come back and hit 3 HRs in 4 batters to tie it 4-4. Go up 7-6 after 5th, he ties it 7-7 in the 6th. I take the lead back 8-7 in the 7th. He ties it 8-8 in top8 but I score 3 in the bottom to make it 11-8, he hits a bomb in top 9 but I get out of it to win 11-9.

    Somehow I hit 5 HRs

    Not sure if this actually mattered, some on Reddit believe it does. But I played this game at Laughing Mountain Park which has a higher elevation. So maybe it helped the ball carry. I’ve never played there before. I guess it’s the same for Shippet

    OK this is definitely a thing. Played a quick game before bed, both of us were dropping bombs. The guy even messaged me about it lol

    There was four HRs that went 495+ feet, and I hit one out with Hal that went like 345 (plus had another one go out but foul).

    Played a game at lunch. Was trying to get my innings with Blue Jays pitchers in. First guy quit after an inning. Opened up my second game with the Future Star Pearson, who is ridiculous BTW and he was dealing. Anyhow I ended up with 13 hits and 1 run. He had 5 hits and 7 runs.

    Card has been out forever but added Gagne to my pen for like 24K. Hopefully can get a game in later to test him out.

    Threw a perfect game online with Kluber last week, about to throw a no hitter yesterday with him, only needed one more out (Im up 4-0) and the dude bunts for a single.

    I was so mad. Fucking coward.

    I don’t think I ever even faced him. That’s not saying much, in general high leverage relief innings are not required when I’m an opponent.

    That’s actually kind of funny, I had a no no going with Hal’s old balls today. 8.2 innings. I was the away team, next pitch was a walk off. I outhit him 7-1, lost.

    Yeah to be honest I don’t think I have either, I’ll probably find out why (lol) although he’s 92 overall and was 24K still.

    What I liked is his FB is mid 90s and then he has a couple mid 80s plus a high 60s curve.

    Only concern is his HR/9 is like 75

    Oh fuck forgot to mention I finished Reynolds today. Solo moon shot in an MLB stadium. I was proud.

    Finally dblplay1212 i love Don. If some chode wants to minor league shit he has plenty of power to go yard. I’m not even a remotely good hitter and I have over ten homers with him already.

    Tried to play a game over lunch tied it 3-3 in the 9th but ended up having to quit in the 13th because I had to get back to work.

    Had about 5 perfect or good contacts get caught at the track.

    So I somehow ripped off three in a row and got over 500. So I play my next game and I lost 4-0, no big deal. You should have seen the RP this mother fucker made. Like the most absurd side arm action in the game, I'm sure it's off some dude who is rated like 54 in the game and a FA because it's not possible for that to ever work. Anyhow, he built this fucker up so that the ball angle release point is basically even with the rubber. You could not possible get an angle on it, it was pure guesswork of the highest order. Oh yeah, he was pushing 101 on his FB and low 70's off speed. Even if the dude threw low 80s I honestly still dont think I would have been able to track the ball.

    The other night I faced my first ever create a player pitcher. Dude was a closer named Ricky Vaughn and he was throwing 98+ then had a change up that was 68. It was a joke.
