    Events are more fun when you can use your entire lineup. And pitchers tire so quickly that if you take some pitches they don't last more than an inning. Stil can't get to 12 wins. Most I've had was 6 iirc.

    There is a free pack with two opening day diamonds. Also there are opening day moments in the 5th inning moments that has an 85-89 diamond as a prize. The moments don’t take anymore than maybe 60 minutes? I couldn’t sleep last night but pretty sure it took me 1/2 hour tops.

    If I don’t beat the 6th inning showdown I might impulsively buy a damn monitor lol

    Is this 99 Trout card the big one they teased?

    Just lost a 12 inning event on a walk off GS by Rickey Henderson that went through my glove when I tried to rob it.

    Just started a ranked season game and my opponent has all live series diamonds that are 5 stars (the best matchups) for inside edge today... Even if my team is all high 90's I'm fully prepared to get worked over

    Ive found that if I win 3 in a row its just a grind. Guys hitting corners or just insane hitters, it’s not that fun so I rarely go back to it. I do enjoy when they have quick counts, especially if I need to accumulate innings for something.

    My favorite games are ranked season games where people just use normal pitchers. These are few and far between but I just enjoy getting guys on base and scoring a few runs. I lost 7-9 this morning and I wasn’t even mad because it was an enjoyable game. Half the time motherfuckers just quit the first sign of trouble, it’s pretty amazing to me.

    Yea I wish we were able to pick the difficulty on ranked games. Let me play on rookie or All-Star if I want to. I don't want to have to play a high difficulty game that ends 1-0 90% of the time just bc I won 3 in a row. It's a punishment for winning. I don't care about the WS, I just want to play other people with my created team. A 6-5 game is so much more fun with 1-0 game with 40 combined K's.

    The amount of good contact/timing line drives I hit directly at someone during Showdown is going to make me throw my PS4 out my window.

    Lost a showdown 14-15 yesterday with runners on 2nd and 3rd with a perfect/perfect lineout double play to third. That was enough Show for me last night.

    The PCI makes zero sense to me. I’ll not even have it on the ball and I homer. Other times it’s damn near middle and it’s not even reaching the track.

    played a dude today who’s team logo was PornHub. I laughed like a child. I also walked him off which was fun but doesn’t sound appropriate given his logo.

    Between sucking at Showdown and watching Last Chance U this week, I haven’t put a dent in the 6th inning program at all.

    I do think they fuck with the game. I won a Showdown every day for the last week or so leading up to beating the 6th. Took some days off of showdown and I haven’t come close this week.

    Also I’m somehow sitting at 279 points. Close on RS and then ten wins in events, br or whatever else there is. Really want Rollins but I need to Prestige Didi and probably won’t get him in my lineup until that happens. Might just sell again, Stan doesn’t do much for me. I did get destroyed with Maddux today he’s pretty nasty but I’ll never make WS so I don’t need another 99 pitcher for another 2-1 dryhumping.

    Im at about 7 points lol like I said being away last weekend + not playing much this week then when I do I can’t beat showdown hasn’t been a good recipe. I assume if I unlock a 6th inning boss I’ll sell for stubs. Although the way the released so many good cards already makes me almost just want to focus on ranked games from now on. (Once I get a monitor/remember how to hit)

    I've been using the event to try and prestige some guys. It hasn't been too bad because every game is vs someone trying to prestige James Paxton or another SP and they leave him in too long trying to get more innings pitched. I unlocked prestige Ellsbury and he's amazing.

    I also changed my uni's to the retro Devil Rays and I'm in love.

    Just grinding out some TA trying to get all the future stars. I have 8, and 13/15 for Trout. I am missing awards and postseason but the way shit is priced there is no way I’m paying for that now.

    Also played a game and made the dude quit in the 8th inning yesterday. He had a CAP named “porch monkey” so reported him right after the game. People are so fucking dumb.

    Last but not least, I have no idea how I’m going to get two saves with Blake. Haven’t even had a chance yet through like 25-30 games.

    Holy shit you are right, just got one and I was shitting. Took dumb luck, throw out at home off a double, throw out at 3rd off pop up and then same thing, hit the cut off because noodle arm Jacoby was at the track, caught him in a run down. 22 pitches, beat Hal’s old balls and lifted Paxson off a no hitter through 8. He didn’t have much energy left.

    you see 100 mph sinker, you think "how butt could he be?"

    The answer is "really butt," and then add in the fuckers who dashboard to stop you from getting a save with him because they know people need Treinen saves, and it's a chore

    New ranked season starts later with rumored Rickey Henderson and Chris Sale added to rewards. Not too bummed about Rickey being a reward because outfield is already loaded, but it hurts a little that Sale will be stupid expensive. Last year his 99 was a battle royale reward and one of the most expensive in the game. Sale cards are always a pain in the ass to bat against.

    I try to throw as few sliders as possible. I think a solid 85% of homers I give up are from sliders.

    I'll use them righty vs righty but man righty vs lefty gets hung 90% of the time and they go a looooong way.

    The current one is a 95, and don’t you think he should have one from the A’s? I mean the current top Damon, Giambi, and Rickey cards are all Yankees.

    I think what we have is a 94 or 95. This one will most likely have solid power vs righty and lefty unlike the current one in addition to maxed out fielding/vision/contact (not sure what the fielding is on the current one)

    Honestly I don't care about teams, just players. Didn't realize his top card was a 95. Was thinking he was in that 99 pack with Reggie and Sandburg at silver 1.

    He is high diamond legends. Just opened one today and he is the last player I’m going to take out of there. So many good Yankees I never needed him.

    I always forget about guys chasing goals like "X hits with Yankees" or whatever. I never do that stuff so that's why I never pay attention to the team a player is from.

    There was Granderson early, Jackson, mantle for collection. Then you also had Didi, Giambi, and Sánchez. Not to mention the Judge Stanton and Torres regular cards are fine as well. The Pirates had like willie fucking Stargell.

    The Judge HR Derby card is sweet. Stanton too, but I think that's a Marlins card.

    7 new 99s dropping today - Ruth dblplay1212, Seaver, Hoffman, Longoria, Nolan Ryan, Hornsby, and a Future Star Robert that I have to assume is going to be ridiculous

    ~200,000 stubs away from Mantle and these fuckers do this

    He’ll be in an all-timers pack released in a couple of hours. No idea as to either question other than as a 99, I assume the answer to both questions will be “insane”

    Also new Topps Now cards, including a 97 Bieber. So much content I may never play FIFA again.
