Do you guys use your CAP at C? If so which diamond path did you choose? Do people even use the CAP online? I had Torre, but couldn’t really hit with him.

Yes, I did Power because I wanted a 99 arm behind the dish.

6/17/2019 10:04PM PDT

I did contact, i only have 3 or 4 diamond equipment items. for the record he hits bombs for me and has been very clutch. Im hitting like .300 overall and hes been solid defensively.

switch hitter. 5’9 for the small strike zone and kris bryant swing

77 power L

I used the balanced path and have no regrets. Great power, great contact and vision. Defense is top notch with 99 arm, 98 blocking and fielding. Worked out very well.

I like how the first 3 comments are all different. Cool stuff. Did you get a lot of diamond gear for the catcher?

I used diamond catcher gear and then gold for pretty much everything else with the exception of a diamond bat I pulled in a pack. I used the gold jock strap ritual as it was the only ritual that helped with blocking.

Kris Bryant swing and I have him as a switch hitter

6/18/2019 4:52AM PDT

I went balanced last night and his stats look great.  Contact and power 98-103.  Fielding 98 arm 98 arm acc. 99.  Nasty, nasty stuff.  I have spent on nearly diamond everything for equipment.

* Note for you guys using caps- the bat skin that you get in the 4th inning program has stats better than most purchased bast.. fyi

6/18/2019 4:58AM PDT

if you put a curveball/changeup in the dirt and get the strikeout, the ball is NEVER blocked, i don't know if this is a catcher issue in general this year as i've used my CAP since day 1. Curveballs on 0-2 counts with a runner at 3rd i basically cant do though

6/18/2019 5:21AM PDT

Wow thanks for pointing that out Im switching that right now, whats the vision on your CAP? I think i got mine to 94 and that pretty tiny on Legend

Dang. 94 is tiny? Should I give up power for a little more vision

Its pretty darn small, vison is super important this year especcially on high difficulty facing 99 KErshaw 99 Ryan etc.. I would def give up power for vision and i looked last game and its only at 92. 

6/18/2019 10:40AM PDT

I really wish the overall on these cap players would get bumped. I feel like my guy with all the diamond gear is close to a 95 just comparing stats

6/18/2019 10:46AM PDT

I went balanced 

94/97 contact

94/91 power

91 vision (I think)

91 fielding 94 arm 89 reaction 91 blocking

65 speed 32 stealing

jose bautista’s Swing no modifications to it.

i sucked with my cap once he became a diamond, until I found my swing with Bautista. I tried several players, chipper Jose Ramirez Griffey George Brett Blackmon JD Martinez, etc. 

but that Bautista swing has made him feel like how his card looks. 

I hear Jorge polancho is a good one too. I hit for more contact when I had that stance, this baustia does it all

That or balanced

6/18/2019 11:13AM PDT

My balanced CAP catcher is a beast at the plate and he's good enough behind the dish.  Blocking balls in the dirt, he's suspect--some games he's solid, and others it feels like he should be doing more based on his stats.

https://imgur.com/gallery/Vu9qBvI This is my power archetype catcher with mostly diamond equipment. (These stats are after boosts are applied from equipment). Don't see myself needing another C all year.

Diamond: Bat, Batting Gloves, Mr Tapper Ritual, All Star Glove, Catchers mask/protector/leg gaurds, under armour cleats

Gold: bat grip, arm sleeve, wrist gaurd, elbow guard, shin guard, compression sleeve, socks, sunglasses

Blocking stats do not matter for catchers this year. 99 blocking and pitches are bouncing off the backstop the same way as a common catcher. Balls teleport through the chest protector.

I noticed that. Super frustrating. Makes you not want to throw a splitter with man on 3rd

6/19/2019 12:21PM PDT

I went power, but if I could do it again I’d go balanced.  I’ve been using a balanced shortstop that I hit much better with.

6/19/2019 12:29PM PDT

Went with power, switch hitter, matt carpenter batting stance, (matt carpenter is a glitch in this game, i stopped using him a month ago and still leads my team in homers), stats look loke this

89 con vs both

112 power vs both

77 vision

87 fielding

99 arm strength and acc

53 speed
