Me swinging at ball four to keep my Moments AB alive

Me swinging at ball four to keep my Moments AB alive

No_Pick_6363

3 ball count the pitch is either way out the zone or painting one of the corners... theres no other way


snowcone_wars

Until I decide I’m just straight taking, then it’s a fastball right down the middle.


Ryujin_707

I feel like they have a Mechanism to sense your PCI moving. If it's not then it's a fastball down the middle.


LeroyLongwood

They have to. They know the only time in a game I’m not actually looking at the TV, meatball every time.


Visit-Active

Or if miraculously you do get on base, they pick you off the moment you look away to take a drink


LittleHoss81

Untrue, the ball goes exactly the opposite of where my pci is


Easy_Duhz_it_

They paint corners for you? Every pitch i see is either in the dirt or another zip code.


Andrew109

That's why you swing at everything so you're never in a 3-0 count.


JoshAllenShorts17

I live in the 0-2 count


[deleted]

I don’t even get to a count


flyingpenguin36

Weak contact on the first pitch gang


chickenmcnoggin

First pitch gang unite. Gotta stay efficient ya know?


Andrew109

Yup. Can't let the batters see too many pitches and tire them out. 2-3 per batter max.


punkologist

3 pitch inning gang


jizzmcskeet

Pop up to the 3rd basement in foul territory


b1gd51

"Can you say... *ambush tactics*?"


Alternative_Memory90

I’m something of a Nicky two strikes myself 😏


kay_0oh

You’re getting to 0-2? I’m popping up by then


jsimler13

Had a 10 pitch at-bat tonight that didn’t go past 0-2. I thrive in the 0-2 count.


RipeNipples

I’m still in the slums of choking in the full count


Johnnywheels1023

This hit me right in the feels. My life has become nothing but swinging at way outside pitches and in the dirt pitches


achammer23

The amount of times I've been saved by the player backing out of the way animation is more than I'd like to admit.


asdwfger

Imagine getting to 3 balls LOL can’t relate


RockieDogs

Righty slider to a righty, on 0-2? Step 1. Definitely way out side Step 2. Recognize slider, E-Z Step 3. Big daddy hack as I swing like an idiot after promising myself not to. Repeat


swab148

The controller vibrated, so that must mean I'm gonna hit a homer, right?


RockieDogs

%100 of the time! I just need to custom practice Right on Right outside and change ups down😐


bb0110

What’s vibrate mean?


Aldo_Montoya

When you guess the pitch and direction of the strike zone the ball is going.


bb0110

You can’t do that for moments challenges though right?


Atony94

If you guess wrong it's a skill penalty though right? I remember doing the guess pitch a lot in the older games but then just gave it up and went to PCI and improved a lot


g_mick

if you guess pitch and swing and miss or take a strike you will lose skill. but you dont lose it for guessing wrong


StatefromJakeFarm

I thought that if you guess wrong it also affects your contact and can keep you from hitting it as well as you should. That's what I had heard and why I stopped using it years ago at least


g_mick

idk i just started playing The Show (xbox boy here) and when i dont guess properly it lets me move the cursor freely and doesnt give me negative skill. when i guess correctly i cant move the cursor and gain skill after hitting the ball. you can still lose discipline and vision if you guess correctly and swing at a ball


StatefromJakeFarm

Ah you're talking about road to the show? I'm not sure as I mostly play franchise but I was told that guessing incorrectly hurts your contact if you do connect with the ball.


Tyler-Lennon5

Yeah the PCI is reduced when you get incorrectly


g_mick

well damn that sucks lol i can only hit with guess pitch so i do it every time 😂 and yeah my bad i play primarily road to the show


Maxwellion421

Me swinging first pitch cause I’m garbage.


CodyRCantrell

I was doing one of the moments to get the Rizzo reliever card... I was HBP all four plate appearances. I had no chance to even take a swing.


AmnesiaLab

Wait... They made a Rizzo reliever card? How do you get it?


CodyRCantrell

[Yeah!](https://www.reddit.com/r/MLBTheShow/comments/n75l04/topps_now_anthony_rizzo_reliever_card/) It's one of the Topps Moments that they make weekly. Can't remember specifically which one it's a reward from but I remember they included Votto's HR milestone against Arrieta, Rizzo getting a strikeout, and the Twins rookie in the moments you have to play.


haxen2000

Rizzo striking out Freddie Freeman was PRICELESS


AmnesiaLab

Yeah, that was one of my favorite clips this year. I love that they made a card for it.


Timothyre99

Once had the game pitch me 7 straight balls outside the zone. Like, what am I meant to do with that? Swing? It's a K. Take? It's a walk.


justinguilbault31

That shit makes me lose my mind lmao I wanna kill some of these cpu pictures


CloudyPlacebo17

Fuckkkk that's me lmao I hate myself every time. I've done it on 0-2 just trying to hit the damn ball


ZJennings365

Especially in RTTS. Move the runner over in 3 pitches. Sure, Pitch 1 48 foot change up, Pitch 2 3 feet high 3 feet outside, pitch 3 hits me.


BiggityBerfa

Me swinging at that pitch because I swing at everything:


saintgordon

“Has him looking SILLY...”


Paulitix

Also: There should be flair for shitpost


jp42212

When the coach calls a hit and run😂


ZeekwithaZ

Lol I feel ashamed to say I have done this


p_aranoid_android

Takes a real eye to even make it to a 3-0 or 3-1 count lol


Iceman2114

I always end up devolving into this. I start off being cautious, taking balls, forcing 5,6,7 pitches at an at bat, but by the end I’m just swinging at everything.


chocolatecremesoda

For me it depends how the game is going. If I'm plying well and am close or ahead I can remain invested and disciplined. But if I'm getting tanked I'm just there trying to convince myself that it's a learning experience.


RaNDiiM

Wait why is nobody talking about the actual clip? Wtf is going on and why did that guy swing lol


whitelite99

Hit and run - trying to save the runner.

Me swinging at an 0-2 count


mjohnson1025

Yep nailed it


rhythmjones

The worst is when they plunk you.


DiabloCometRock

How did you get a video of me on a 0-0 count?


the_goat513

That is me 90% of pitches


jonjonjay

Same...


chitowncubs2016

Luckily this weeks moments were easy as f


Smoked_Carp

I just talk crap 💩 to the pitcher and he throws me a strike. Ha!


daniloaso

Very Good!!!


Hopeful_Corner_2053

Just a bit outside 😁


IRaymond20

Every plate appearance.

lmao tragic !!!!


Ridder1201

When I need an XBH and follow this up with trying to stretch a blooper to the Center Fielder into a double


Justanotherguy45

But what about the un written rules of Baseball /s


Tdk1984

Yup! And one of the reasons I generally don’t bother with Moments.


Thabass

I'm sure Tony LaRussa would be mad at you.


wolfwoodcp

I love this so much.. Perfectly the same in a relative sense
