    Pitchers with quick wind ups help tremendously. Also when I saw you could not accumulate any Team Affinity points I was out.

    Also played a dude who was like 12-96 today. I was like sweet this should be decent. I got mercy ruled. Lol.

    There’s a way to switch to like “fast” between pitches so there’s not cut scenes and stuff vs CPU. Under game settings and maybe pitching.

    Yeah it’s fast play and you can disable walk ups. Still some wind ups are so slow you can literally get three pitches off with another dude.

    Up to 40/100 now. Completed 15 moments. I think there's 14 total.

    Just played an event game vs a guy with a nameplate that said challenge of the week winner. Dude mashed everything. I put a couple pitches on the black and painted some corners and they were still no doubt homers. It was unreal.

    Stub sale ends today. I have a little over 200k now and my team is pretty loaded. What are the odds they will release some monster card later that I have to have? 99% chance?

    I have no clue at all. I guess the question I’d have is does it get more aggressive than 50% off? I don’t need stubs for anything but if it’s chump change for 99s I wouldn’t be opposed.

    Brandon Phillips has to be one of the worst awards cards out there. Slow as shit and less than a lick of power. Moments are annoying as hell and I have max points outside of needing a few.

    He’s just a monthly player for the inning. It’s not a choice just moments and then there are other points you get towards him.

    Oh my bad, I thought it was Phillips, Musuial, and Ryan in a group. My bad. I get them all confused. Ruth is the first one I've fucked with.

    Is there a RH you like? Also time again for the favorite card segment? Anything you guys like?

    Really irritating when your opponent quits in the 3rd and your starting pitcher energy looks like he went for 10

    I’m trying to think of righties, but I really love Alex Kirilloff too. Mashes RHP. Carlos Correra or RH Chipper? Hate the Astros right now though

    Stanton HR Derby is probably my favorite righty. He just hits lasers. Thome is the first lefty I can think of.

    Pitchers, it's by far the upgraded Bob Feller. The red one. I'm 17-2 with him and 1 of those was when I had to turn it off bc G wasn't having it lol. I'm barely.500 with all other pitchers.

    Hanley and Posey from the right side for me. Still test driving Minoso but he and Cutch have a week left tops in my lineup.

    Working on Prestige, he had a run and did decent for me but I’m basically like 65 version of Mark Reynolds at the plate with righties.

    Also really wish I would have kept Mariano from last inning. Also I didn’t care about prestige earlier which has me behind the curve. I need one more item/collection for Trout.

    Agreed, man I cannot hit Klubebot. I never in a million years thought I’d be able to beat Hals old balls but I can do that now consistently. That said Paxton is garbage. Also Kyle is decent but limited by fatigue. Greinke is also not a 99. The real great pitchers have like fucking insane movement IMO. Like you don’t even need to aim the pitch direction and it ends in 3 entirely different spaces none of which are down the middle.

    This game man...

    Had a game vs Hal where he shut me down for 8 innings. Dude takes him out for the 9th and I get 4 solo shots in 5 batters to walk it off.

    Next game I some early runs and hold a guy to 1 hit through 5 or 6 innings. I got cocky and replay a HR that put me up 6-0 because :shrug:
    In the next inning dude brings Mantle in off his bench to pinch hit for his pitcher, homers, and then ties it up in a couple of innings like he's just been letting me get a head start for the first 2/3rds of the game.

    Last week I loaded up on Yastrzemski’s for about 6-700 hoping he’d go gold. He’s at 79 and after getting a Topps now card I have no clue if he goes gold. Not a whole lot of profit so I may sell tonight if the market is up.

    Have 4 or 5 Soto’s that I’ve pulled from packs the last month I’m hoping go diamond.

    Also would suggest if you guys aren’t doing collections (Or if you are I guess) go through all your live series cards and list them as auctions (don’t sell now). Might take a while but I did this a couple weeks ago and made like 35K stubbs just from live series duplicates.

    I've never sell now. Also don't forget about equipment, animations and all that other stuff. That can add up quickly.

    I loaded up on Bundy and Kyle Seager. Both are still reasonably priced in my opinion, Seager I think simply because he is a Mariner.

    Smaller guys I have tons of as well. I have to keep better track of the mid to high 70's guys to get in on that quicker.

    Burch Smith (lol) Just looking through my fantasy league stats and he shows up. 58 common in the game.

    Also whiteboy I love those cheeky cunts who figure out what guys are going to go to the next level and then lock in like 50 orders where they remain the high sell now on a card. In a Gold to Diamond that like an easy $1000 profit in a week or two.

    I forgot about Bundy I might check him out later. Last year JP Crawford cost next to nothing so I had probably 50+ that I gradually bought for 10 or less stubbs over time because I kept thinking he was on the verge of a breakout. It clearly never happened. I don’t even know why I stuck with it really.

    I had about 90k stubbs yesterday and saw Maddux’s price in the low 80s. I bought it hoping his price goes up after the 6th inning ends tomorrow. Guys from the 5th inning are around 140k now. I probably don’t have the patience to wait that long but we’ll see.

    Options are him, a Prime Frank Thomas who has great stats but is a DH with a slow swing when 1B is loaded right now, or Walter Johnson, whose windup is a crime against humanity.

    so it’s basically Harper or stubs for selling one of them.

    Well got damn! Bundy and Seager both went gold. I have over 150 of them, I don't even know how I am going to unload them. Definitely keeping some Bundy if he continues to pitch like he's Marmaduke reincarnate.

    I need 2 more topps to get him. I’m debating buying 4 now for 80k and then selling the two when I complete the moments. I believe you get 75k to complete the collection.

    also pulled a 97 Dylan Carlson, Cards from a headliner pack off Shark map. Going to sit on him which is probably a mistake but I don’t need the dough at the moment.

    PSA - I feel like pack odds are juiced right now with Madden coming soon. Have pulled maybe 10 diamonds from the standard packs through the shark map and just playing - 9 were low diamonds, but just packed Trout.

    About a week ago I swear I pulled 6 or 7 in one 24 hour period. It was ridiculous. They were all lows but still I enjoyed it.

    That said going onto a sports discussion can any other sports game even come close to touching this? Fifa was my go to but it’s absolutely complete trash compared to this.

    I have zero interest in Madden but I’d reconsider if it’s 5% as compelling. Is NBA or NHL worth a shot?

    100%. Picked up NHL this year because I was sick of FIFA’s shit; it was ok but nothing like this. Haven’t played this game in a decade or so and am a lock to preorder next year.
