    Anyone faced Paxton yet? Or used him? I’ve seen mixed reviews on Reddit.

    I roughed him up the other night. Fastball only like 95 so had better luck vs him. Not sure which Paxton it was though. Is there a new one that's rated high?

    There’s a player of the month card that’s a 99, but I’ve seen a couple people on Reddit basically say the exact thing you did. Not a lot of movement or change in speed etc.

    Wouldn’t mind grinding out a free 99 LHP, but also want to make sure he’s not terrible. There’s also a 90 overall Yasmani Grandal you could get too so that’s why I’m considering it.

    Yeah, he’s a new player of the month reward, 99 rating (as a Mariner). Not a great pitch mix.

    Apparently locking him, Belli, Correa, and Didi will get you a Ducks on the Pond pack with the elite round a possibility?

    99 overall player I believe. In reality you're pulling this.

    Edit: I'm on Diaz. Hope to finish up today. Got back into flipping so I just did trades and the moments.

    Speaking of flipping, I saw that Banks got down to like 90k and now he's back up to 160k. Nice little profit there.

    Yup it’s from the ducks stuff. All the mid tier cards from ducks releases are down low. I don’t know how to isolate those cards though.

    That’s the stadium I was talking about the other day. It’s bomb city there. The one game had like 5 HRs all go 490+. Kind of fun, kind of infuriating.

    Bought ol Boggs because he was cheap af. Batting about .565 with him. He’s good for at least 1-2 doubles to the gaps in the outfield it seems every game.

    big fan

    Yea that was my first game there since you posted about it. The ball visibly travels further. Not just on perfect swing bombs, but even early swing long fly balls. 6 HR's between us. Braun ended it with a PH walk off vs Chapman.

    Speaking of Braun, he's a monster bench bat off of lefties. 125/115 vs lefties. He's cheap too so I can't imagine there are many better options.

    If I have a power bat I pretty much exclusively hit with the contact swing in those parks.

    All the high desert parks, you can pretty much tell if you see desert the ball will fly.

    Honestly I can’t tell you a minor league stadium in the game that isn’t twice as easy to hit homers in than a MLB stadium. Shippet and Franco come to mind though, but those are most frequent to me possibly.

    There’s also one with a hotel in LF, not sure the name but that’s another one.

    Good game, I couldn’t get anything started off Feller. Quick counts are stupid, first time I played with them and was on accident. But you have to be defensive hitting the whole time because you’re pretty much always down in the count.

    Yea figured it was an accident. Definitely socks bc you can't see many pitches. I need as many swings as possible to make contact. We both had several that died at the wall.

    Can’t connect to the server right now so out of boredom I looked at the stadiums with highest elevation.

    Coors Field - 5,280 feet
    Laughing Mountain Park - 5,005 feet (minor league)
    Shippett Stadium - 3,002 feet (minor league)
    All American Park - 1,168 feet (minor league)

    So I just realized if I am straight on my screen I can actually hit. Long story short, I had to shit so I stood up. Was down 3-0 at the time and racked up 11 hits and came back to tie up. Ultimately lost in extras but didn’t care, got to shit.

    I usually use the vault, but I’ve watched people make the logos on there and it’s insane how they do it.

    I’ve always thought it’d be cool if these games allowed some type of jpeg upload or something to help with created uniforms.

    Saw something on YouTube about a new card coming but they don't know who it is. Halfway watched the video but they said they had a similar collection last year and the card was Honus Wagner. His guesses this year are Mays, Ruth, or Williams bc there's a way to see new legends coming and there's no new name slots so it's probably someone already made, just a higher rated card. A 99 Ruth would be bonkers.

    Would be really dumb for both endgame cards to be Yankees (and at least as I understand the rumors, there will be a high diamond Ruth coming).

    Mays demands a much better card than the US showdown map reward, would be a much better choice imo.

    I think you’ll definitely get a 99 Ruth, just won’t be an endgame reward

    I'd prefer that, honestly. End game can't be bought, right? I'll be salty af if they make a Mantle and Ruth and I can't get either.

    Phew almost blew a cg shutout with greinke.

    won on a 2 strike pitch out double play that he was attempting to bunt his guy in from third, and tagged out his runner with Torre
