I second Oswalt, he's nasty,
It still happens with analog pitching as well. Maybe not quite as often but for sure happens. Just a part of the game this year unfortunately!
Cardinals collection Albert Pujols. The guy is an absolute animal with the bat.
(Slightly expensive i know, but regardless still amazing for me)
I think he pressed R1 too early
That is awesome
Whats more valuable to one person may not be for others.
Time is more valuable than money in some cases, so people will spend money for the players they want instead of losing however many hours of their life grinding.
Vice Versa for money vs. time obviously.
Except its 2019.... there's that "25" year old brain kicking in..
just jokes :)
26 years old here
I've heard that getting those stick add-ons "Kontrol Freaks" can help with your pci positioning and also with pitching more accurately.
I personally don't use them, i know some MLB youtbers/streamers do though.
Who cares? It's a video game. If you don't like the content then dont play or don't pay attention to that aspect of the game.
I did the exchanges and did the 250 innings. took like 1 - 2 hours to complete
I have had this happen to me (In 18, not this year so far) and unfortunately it can happen.. I don't know if the system gets confused or what but either way not much we can do about it except report the bug and continue on.
Hi there! Welcome to DD.
Honestly, keep practicing. Even try practicing offline on All-Star and above to adjust to pitch speeds properly for hitting. As far as pitching goes it's really different per game you play. You kind of have to read your opponent and make pitching adjustments accordingly.
Personally, i don't like meter pitching (i use analog) but to each their own. There are many who use meter pitching and do really well, so it's all personal prefernce.

I find it much more enjoyable this year. Being mainly an online player, the idea of grinding the CPU offline on rookie is just mind-numbing to me.
At this stage of the game i find it hard to pass up on any of the pitchers (Kershaw, Ryan, or Hoffman)
I think they screwed with some of the numbers both on offense and defense to keep overall ratings relative.
If Arenado or Machado have more defense attributes would their overall be higher? Just a thought.
Imagine being salty because people spend money on something they like. LOL
Players in real life do make contact with some pretty horrible pitches, but not as often as we see in this game so I do see the frustration.
I use Chapman over Donaldson... I like the defense of chapman at the hot corner.

Ryan Schimpf Immortal.
Steve Finley looks mighty impressive... but also finding a good catcher early game is going to be a struggle i think... Hard decision.
