    I don't get how cards can be 99 and have horrid defense. What's the point?

    Gehrig’s swing is apparently the same as Cobb’s, and I hit 150 points better with Cobb than anyone else. But hard to spend a ton of time when he’s basically Babe, probably a little worse.

    Update on my 9th inning issues - lost another game 2-1 after throwing 8 innings of two hit ball with Orel. Then got matched up with a dude who swung at everything, which let me throw a very cathartic perfect game. Credit to him for hanging in there for 9 innings.

    I tend to feel bad for those guys and after its apparent I throw for contact. Did this one day and the fucker bunted on me in the third. Same deal, had 22 K's and I have no idea how he hung in there that long. I think I struck him out all but one PA after he bunted.

    Did showdown extreme and it wasn't too bad. But I think I had decent luck with the mini bosses I faced. I think there are several you could randomly end up with and Pearson in the final boss every time.

    Moments looks stupid hard and conquest might be doable but that'll take forever so I may just play those when I get tired of online play every so often.

    First game I’ve played against him, first time he did his wind up i almost just quit the game.

    lost 3-2 hit 2 no doubters off him but everything else was a grounder or routine fly ball no matter how well i hit it

    I’m pretty much homer or bust against anyone right now and not sure how to fix it. Trout and Mantle get shit through the IF because you could be blind and get a hit with them. But I’ll have to pull my numbers up with Ellsbury later. I swear I have 35 homers with him and only 38 Rbis.

    This was a recommended video after watching that one and it pretty perfectly sums up my experience with trying a couple of the moments last night. Nice to see someone making videos about the game that aren't making it look like a piece of cake.

    I really like Pudge, I'm hitting over 300 with him and he's gunned out a lot of base runners.

    Will say the rewards for getting to 700 and 800 are atrocious. Don’t get why they don’t up them some.

    if i can get to 700 this season it will be the highest I’ve ever climbed

    I'm convinced the that if you can get to 700 it's much easier to stay there. I've made 700 most seasons this year and last season I finished so much lower that I started this season at 450 and can't seem to get past 650ish.

    Bellinger owns me like no other. He has to have a 1.500 OPS vs me. Doesnt matter who I'm playing.

    I have decent success against him with high inside heat. He’s not quite as bad as Reggie, but that bat can be slow to get around on pitches up.

    - 2 on, he gets an early swing high fly ball that carries out the park to right CF with 99 Cobb

    - next inning, bases loaded, my 99 Cobb gets a perfect/perfect line drive to the track in right CF for an inning ending out

    Sometimes I want to break this game. Would have put me over 600 too.

    Hitting well today for some reason. I went from All-Star to Division series today, ripped off like 7. I only think I completed one full game and that was a walk off with J-Roll. I've seen people shit on that card but he mashes for me it was his second of the game. Currently sitting at 705 and I am going to guess that tomorrow my bats are dead and I am back to Pennant Race with a quickness.

    Edit: I never made Wild Card before. Also the rewards are shite.

    Finally, pulled Arenado from a Ballin pack a few minutes ago. He's somehow more than Trout.

    Got up to 598, played 4 straight Prestige guys with God squads and got destroyed. Back down to 489. Fuck this game.

    Just about the only benefit to ranked season since none of us are World Series level is the huge amounts of XP you get at each tier. But that's not as satisfying as stubs or cards.

    Finally made it back to 700 this morning. Was at 687 and the kid wanted a friendly quit but I declined because he had Maeda on the mound and not some fireballer. He scored first and we traded runs for half the game until I had a big inning and went up 10-6. Then he messaged me saying he was 1 win away from 800. I called him on it because I didn't let my slider go far enough to match up with anyone near that high. He unpaused, gave up another HR to my Tatis, then quit. Such a satisfying win.

    Had a pretty weird game just now. He homered in 3rd inning to go up 1-0. That was his only hit through 8. I had 5 hits, no runs. Stanton led off the 9th with a bomb to tie it.

    He quit.

    This^ Always worth getting almost any sellable card for the stubs (except those cards from the deadball event - those cards were expensive but that event sucked).

    Honus is both fast and hits for power. Basically infield version of Ty Cobb. Kenley is going to be one of the best right hand RP in the game with his pitches. Don't know much about Foxx. Last year he was a BR reward so I never used him. I know people liked using him at catcher because of his bat but with a ton of catcher options this year that doesn't seem worth it.

    Wife free for 36 hours. Going to try and complete the inning today while I have some CFB on. I am probably going to pick up Kenley for my pen. Also he should be super simple to prestige, although I am not sure what that really does for you? I realize he gets better stats, just speaking from a collection standpoint......

    I started out pretty bad with POTM Tatis - like 1 for 30 - but he’s been smoking the ball for me in the event

    I need that postseason Strasburg like I need oxygen. Got Cy Young Scherzer from the Headliner sale yesterday so I’m close to the all-Nats god squad. Naturally, no bullpen.

    Anyone else hitting exceptionally well on Events lately. I won 10-6 today and 7-2. Also, I absolutely crushed Pearson twice. Not sure if it's just a lucky stretch or if anyone thought it seemed easier to hit.

    Pearson is kinda trash imo. Yeah you will strike out but with his control and meh offspeed stuff, he doesn’t have a shutdown game in him.

    His buy now value has been at 0 for more than a week. There’s almost 1,000 listings for $1k sell orders, but he’s unobtainable for some reason? Only dude left to get the Rockies collection

    I pulled a common and sold him for $999 today. Wasn’t a Rockie though. He sold in less than 30 seconds and I was the only listing. Kind of dumb, they should at least allow you to buy those players for their max value, like me selling him for $999 today.

    I got him a few days ago, put in a sell order for $1000 (max $ for a common/bronze/whatever he is) and you’ll have to wait in line. Took about 36 hours for my order to go thru

    I do all the shit for players that I can online. I promise you if I showed you my stats you'd know I wasn't lying, I am horrible. I just stack my lineup and try to get "x" hits because I just despise the moments so much. From there I will say I absolutely mashed through Pence and Edmunds moments in no time because I generally only have to do 4. Pence is all of them but they are short and quick. Plus in the process I sneak out wins for the innings program, which helps, see below.

    Completed the inning last night. I completed all the monthly missions which went surprisingly quick. Got my 10 wins in ranked and between that and completing conquest I was sitting at 215-220. Ended up buying Kershaw for 160, Cobb for 160. Cashed them in for the 9th inning voucher, also get a lot of stubs and XP there as well. Ended up selling Honus for 350K last night so I essentially made back all my money.

    Disclaimer, wife and kid free for 36 hours. Would have never happened any other way.
