    won my first ever showdown (with 10 outs to spare :ballin:) and then pulled duke snider from the program rewards.

    not bad considering I nearly smashed my controller through the wall 30 minutes earlier from the sd moments

    For the monthly ones they also have some sort of mission in there. Usually it's something stupid, like this month is 10 hits with Angels and 3 HR with OFer. I always knock those out in online then only have to play a mission or two.

    Honestly cannot wait for PS5. I don't mind the moments, I completed all the TA, I just fucking hate sitting on the load screen.

    I try to avoid the online missions whenever possible, 3 online HR with an OF could take me days with the way I hit online lol

    going back to finish the april program to get didi. this tim anderson moment of 17 total bases in 3 games is brutal. It's on rookie but still a pain

    needed some online strikeouts for something so I did an events game. matched with level 100 prestige, whatever I'll just take my pounding, get my strikeouts and get out of there

    ended up winning via a jorge posada walkoff off gagne :warn:

    That's always a nice feeling. I played someone in ranked last night who had a world series banner (900+) even though I was in the 500s and I make sure to not let the slider go that far. Ended up beating him 4-2 and never really felt outmatched.

    Games like that are the reason I convince myself I can one day make it to World Series... Heck I just want to get to 800 at some point this year.

    Guy walked me 11 times today and I lost. Not only did I lose I got shut out, lol. It was Seaver and I just could not track that fucker at all. Crushed one pitch off the top of the wall and left him stranded.

    Played a really fun game yesterday I lost 7-6 but I put up 2 in the 8th and 4 in the 9th to tie it up. Love those games and I’ll take that loss over a 2-1 dry hump win any day of the week.

    Guys who know what they're doing with Seaver are a nightmare to face. Faced him a while back and the guy was mixing in off speed so well, I was just clueless at the plate. Such a terrible feeling.

    new event:
    all hitters must be < 65pwr, hof difficulty

    I think this could be cool if it was on allstar. But HOF with no limits on pitchers is too much for me. The rewards also kinda suck

    I hit the top of LF wall with an Olerud. How I squared up that ball with a smaller PCI I’ll never know. Also all games are played at Forbes I believe.

    I know I suck but I still feel like hitting is too hard online. me and my opponent just combined for 30 K and 7 hits.

    Try some BR on occasion. It’s so nice when you go from facing Kluber to some random silver pitcher with no movement. I got smoked the other day on ranked, couldn’t square anything up at all to BR and then back to back homers on first two ABs, they quit. Fucker literally put two pitches dead center then quit, wasn’t even like I did anything impressive.

    I did hit a bottom of the 3rd walk off with Jay Bruce this morning on a high and in fastball which felt nice. It was against a decent RP as well.

    are the pitch speeds different online & in the different modes?

    I feel like pitches on online allstar are way faster than offline allstar. offline I can handle 98mph but online feels like it's past me before I can even swing

    It’s way different. You have like a fuckin millisecond to react. I have become better but still amazes me guys who constantly square shit up. Finally I’m garbage so take it fwiw but I think recognizing balls and strikes is 90% of the battle. My other 10% is not moving the PCI out of the zone on a very hittable pitch. I’m sure it’s vastly more difficult on higher difficulty but I’d say most games you get at least 5 floaters or straight down the middle.

    Thanks I did not see that collection. Looks like if you complete all the missions you can skip two moments, which is my plan especially if there are multi gamers. At 75, do not think I am going to finish tonight but it's still early.

    But don't you have to play X amount of inning with players from certain teams and then have X number of hits with certain OF's and shit like that?

    Say you have to play 9 innings with Braves players. Have 9 Braves in 1 game ? 1 inning will complete that or 3 players in 3 innings

    No, I had been keeping up on the new moments weekly, so just had to do the new moments and missions. You don’t have to do all of the missions - I think if you do everything else you can not finish two of the missions (I didn’t do Voit homers or Winker hits). And you don’t need all of the Topps Now cards - there are 31 available, plus the 7 POTM cards you unlock on the way.

    Fortunately a lot of the topps now cards are at quick sale value. About to snag a few D’Arnauds to make sure I can get Finest Soto whenever TA4 comes out.

    Started off like 0-6 with tatis but I’m coming around with him now. Had a 3 for 4 game with 2 hrs and a double. Hitting no doubters with contact swing is fun

    also prestiged Paxton and he’s been lights out for me.

    hopign to get maddux and smoltzy prestiged at some point.

    I just got Oswalt today. I need three more K's with Henke and like 20 something with Leiter. Leiter is ridiculously hard to get K's with, especially when you are playing someone with plate discipline because he has no velo. I'm also thinking I'll buy Mo now so I can prestige him as well. Wish I would have taken that a bit more seriously in the beginning but oh well.

    Also hit a million stubs today. Almost at 1.1 million and I really don't want to buy anything at all.

    Finally, Tatis is fun as hell. I love the top of my order. Fernando, Trout, Mantle and Jacoby. I just need RBI with him, but he has some sneaky fucking power, if I could get guys on base and not only hit solo shots he'd be out of my lineup.

    The 9th inning comeback sliders are outrageous. I know Eric Gagne isn’t the worst fucking pitcher in the game.
