Yeah, I'm signing on now. I haven't exactly been playing well in the last few days and I haven't pitched in a long time so this will be an interesting game.

EDIT: My one request for settings is no guess pitch. Everything else doesn't matter.
EDIT 2: Holy shit, did they shut the servers down already? I can't get online.

Well that was an adventure, especially on defense I had no fastball control at all until like, the 5th. Good game though, I'll go again if you want.

Yeah, Verlander is pretty good in this game You had a bunch of really good at bats where you fouled off seemingly everything I threw though. It was frustrating the hell out of me. Be a little more patient (I threw like 9 balls all game or something) and you'll be fine with analog hitting.

Yeah I'll play a few practice games sometime. I'm really used to buttons+guess pitch. I just can't focus on the analog motion, timing the stride, and watching the pitch at the same time. I was just getting heated because there were quite a few fastballs right down the middle that I know I would have at least made contact with if I was using the buttons. When I get annoyed with myself, I get impatient so that's that.
#134
The motion becomes second nature after a while though if you do zone plus analog its tough to get the timing down for using both sticks at the same time (I'm usually late on everything). Timing the stride is a pain in the ass, I'm always a little early or a little late.

There was a guy on my high school team who did the whole Chad Bradford submarine thing and he was the most bipolar pitcher I ever played with. Some days he was absolutely lights out then others he would hit four batters in a row. I guess you gotta really work at it to get a sidearm delivery like that to work.



Sounds like me


I think it's more to do with the batter than the pitcher, sometimes. Some guys can just pick a part a sidearm pitcher, and some guys just get completely baffled by it. Although I've never batted against anyone who went full sidearm.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vH1L8b9ExOE

I like this video for two reasons... I'm a Brewers fan!; and I throw a lot like Tim Dillard from the mound. Pretty much how you'd expect any sidearm short stop to toss it. What he says in that video about 2-seams vs 4-seams is SO true!

Also, anyone have some advice to break a glove in quick? I finally got back to playing baseball last year. It had been a few years, and my old glove didn't fit anymore, so I bought a new one. Signed up for intramural softball at my school, and it's an outfielder's glove, so it's big enough, but it's still pretty stiff, and I want it nice and comfy by the time I play.



The best way to break in a glove is to use it! Even now at 22 I lay in my bed and toss the ball at the ceiling, play catch with a wall, or just catch with anyone who will! The best way to get used to your glove and break it in the most comfortable way you can is simply to just use it.

What glove do you have, by the way?

I wish the Mets were a good team

EDIT: CAPTAIN AMERICA UP WITH THE BASES LOADED.
EDIT 2: Mike Aviles hates America. A run's a run though.

Oh, I would also like Stanton. How 'bout it Marlins? You seem to like getting rid of players.

I'm just patiently waiting for him to follow up with one of his 7000 feet home runs.
Relevant. 494 ft. I could waste hours watching videos of home runs.

Captain America! Stanton should be batting now, I don't get why Hosmer is before him in the lineup.

America will only be out of the WBC when they win the WBC.

And that double play was a thing of beauty.
