Me swinging at ball four to keep my Moments AB alive
By - Paulitix
3 ball count the pitch is either way out the zone or painting one of the corners... theres no other way
Until I decide I’m just straight taking, then it’s a fastball right down the middle.
I feel like they have a Mechanism to sense your PCI moving. If it's not then it's a fastball down the middle.
They have to. They know the only time in a game I’m not actually looking at the TV, meatball every time.
Or if miraculously you do get on base, they pick you off the moment you look away to take a drink
Untrue, the ball goes exactly the opposite of where my pci is
They paint corners for you? Every pitch i see is either in the dirt or another zip code.
That's why you swing at everything so you're never in a 3-0 count.
I live in the 0-2 count
I don’t even get to a count
Weak contact on the first pitch gang
First pitch gang unite. Gotta stay efficient ya know?
Yup. Can't let the batters see too many pitches and tire them out. 2-3 per batter max.
3 pitch inning gang
Pop up to the 3rd basement in foul territory
"Can you say... *ambush tactics*?"
I’m something of a Nicky two strikes myself 😏
You’re getting to 0-2? I’m popping up by then
Had a 10 pitch at-bat tonight that didn’t go past 0-2. I thrive in the 0-2 count.
I’m still in the slums of choking in the full count
This hit me right in the feels. My life has become nothing but swinging at way outside pitches and in the dirt pitches
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.
Imagine getting to 3 balls LOL can’t relate
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.
The controller vibrated, so that must mean I'm gonna hit a homer, right?
%100 of the time! I just need to custom practice Right on Right outside and change ups down😐
What’s vibrate mean?
When you guess the pitch and direction of the strike zone the ball is going.
You can’t do that for moments challenges though right?
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
if you guess pitch and swing and miss or take a strike you will lose skill. but you dont lose it for guessing wrong
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
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
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.
Yeah the PCI is reduced when you get incorrectly
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
Me swinging first pitch cause I’m garbage.
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.
Wait... They made a Rizzo reliever card? How do you get it?
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.
Rizzo striking out Freddie Freeman was PRICELESS
Yeah, that was one of my favorite clips this year. I love that they made a card for it.
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.
That shit makes me lose my mind lmao I wanna kill some of these cpu pictures
Fuckkkk that's me lmao I hate myself every time. I've done it on 0-2 just trying to hit the damn ball
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.
Me swinging at that pitch because I swing at everything:
“Has him looking SILLY...”
Also: There should be flair for shitpost
When the coach calls a hit and run😂
Lol I feel ashamed to say I have done this
Takes a real eye to even make it to a 3-0 or 3-1 count lol
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.
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.
Wait why is nobody talking about the actual clip? Wtf is going on and why did that guy swing lol
Hit and run - trying to save the runner.
😂😂😂 take this upvote
Me swinging at an 0-2 count
Yep nailed it
The worst is when they plunk you.
How did you get a video of me on a 0-0 count?
That is me 90% of pitches
Luckily this weeks moments were easy as f
I just talk crap 💩 to the pitcher and he throws me a strike. Ha!
Just a bit outside 😁
Every plate appearance.

lmao tragic !!!!
When I need an XBH and follow this up with trying to stretch a blooper to the Center Fielder into a double
But what about the un written rules of Baseball /s
Yup! And one of the reasons I generally don’t bother with Moments.
I'm sure Tony LaRussa would be mad at you.
I love this so much.. Perfectly the same in a relative sense
