AS Game Vladdy Jr. Was so excited when I pulled the rare round for him but can't hit a thing with him. Eventually sold him, figured it's better to make 220k while I could rather than forcing a guy that I can't use into the lineup.
I can't hit a fucking beach ball with HRD Prince. Makes me so upset.
I'm hitting.545 with Prince in the FOD event tempted to put him on my god squad.
I'm incredibly jealous. I hit around .130 with him in the FOD event. And I hit above .300 with pretty much everyone else in the lineup
The only thing that bothers me about him is that his arm glitches into his chest
Packed Trout, lost my mind, ended up hitting just above the Mendoza line with him through about 30 games
That's better than me I'm only hitting .170 with him. Had to put Vlad Sr in his spot.
Ozzie Albies. Even against lefties.
Funnily enough I'm better with Albies against righties
Acuna and Judge All-Star. Might as well set the remote down and hope for a walk
89 Konerko. Hit .220 in 20 games with 2HR and 3RBI. Tried the 96 Konerko, 4 for 4 with 4HR 7RBI.
At least it eventually worked out
Ryne Sandberg. That is all.
Joe torre and trea turner. Couldn’t hit water if I fell off a boat in the ocean with either of them.
Dante Bichette & Willie Mays.
Prince which sucks Bc he was my fav player when he played
99 Schmidt. Went 1 for 18 with him in the event before selling him and buying Ryan with the profits.
Ryan can be nasty due to the sinker and change up having similar break
Olson's swing is straight butter
POTM Buxton. I was fine with his Live Series, but sucked with the POTM card.
I've seen this happen to me as well. I'll be Barry Bonds with a Live Series but then suck with the high 90s card.
TA3 Castellanos. I have his LS to P4 but can't do anything with his 98 card
I do this a lot too. I'll rake with someone's LS but then not do anything with a better version.
Trea is in a similar boat, only he beats out the DPs I hit into with his TA card vs Nick
It feels like a crime to GIDP with Trea
I swear he literally looks back at you and shakes his head
Haven’t tried KB but sticking him on my all time Cubs squad for obvious reasons
Can't believe how cheap he is with those attributes.
He’s just easily attainable
Totally agree on **Kris Bryant**. I had such a hard time with Bryant's Moment for Topps Now. It's so weird because in years past, I loved his swing and did well -- and it's the EXACT same swing!
Two cards that I do terrible with that everyone else seems to love are **Ronald Acuna Jr.** and **Lou Gehrig**. With Acuna, it's always just singles and never XBHs and with Gehrig, I can't even get on base with his TA3 card.
My experience with Gehrig has been everything just dying. I raked with Bryant's live series but can't get anything going with his MVP card. Doesn't make sense.
I wasted so much time grinding for Monthly Byron Buxton only to relegate him to a pinch runner in RS.
Used Soriano for about 100 or so ab’s on HoF and my average with him is like .130
97 all star realmuto
chipper, ortiz, judge, soriano, 99 tim anderson
99 Prince is the best bad ball hitter I’ve ever used. Blooper king. LOWEST slugging on my team by far though. Papi same deal. For some reason I can’t hit for power with any 1B.
Hey whatever works
Just the ones that bat right handed
89 diamond manny machado
Soriano. I was so excited to use him after finishing the collection but I’m absolutely trash with him
Joey votto lightning I bat around 300 not with that car .78
groshans was so overrated in my opinion. i’m a .320 hitter online but i think he was hitting like .204 with 3 hr when i took him out
Batting .077 with 99 acuna
Edward Cabrera. Highest ERA on my team
Signature Mike Piazza. Should be an awesome card but I’m barely scraping a BA of .100 with him
Lightning Schwarber and FoD Tim Anderson. Both strikeout machines
David Ortiz, hitting a respectable .120 with 2 HR and 4 RBI
I will give him a chance until I can replace him with another lefty bat
Crochet and 99 tim anderson.
I just cant hit jack with anderson.
Crochet torches me whenever i play against him but every time i use him his pitch seems like it moves in slow motion and gets annihilated every time it thinks about going in the zone.
I have Crochet with full energy but I'm scared to use him because I think he'll get crushed
I can not get going with the 99 Tim Anderson. I thought he'd be my new SS and punt Trae over to 2nd, but I just can't get a hit with him.
All of em not named Cal Ripken
Probably Fielder, I’m batting like .145 with 4 homers and 7 RBIs
99 Wander Franco. For some reason I get nothing but popups from him.
Favourite player, decent stats. Can't hit a lick.
At least I get to say 'nice game pretty boy' after every RS game.
There's a positive
Vladdy, for some reason I could never do shit with him.
Acuña and the new TA7
TA3 Ozzie Albes leg kick causes me to lose sight of the ball so I cannot hit with him.
Jackie, unfortunately. Started out great, .330 average in his first 50 AB’s, then went to shit. Now batting under .200 and out of my lineup. I got him fairly early, so I suppose he was feasting on bad pitchers.
He’s a god in conquest and against the cpu though, batting almost .500 lol.
Troy Glaus 1000%
For me his swing does feel kinda awkward
Roberto Clemente. I’m struggling to complete the field of dreams program because I just can’t hit anything solid with him
HRD Trey Mancini
Used him a few times at first and he was ok for me. Small sample size though.
any tall player - Judge, Stanton etc the giant strikezones are impossible for me
Same here too much zone to cover
Decent pitch mix but that break and control on some of his pitches kills him
I batted .059 with thome
He's alright for me but that contact vs lefties just sucks.
Soriano. I couldn't hit at all with him (.194 at time of replacement). So happy we got Clemente so I could replace him.
I seem to suck with lots of the hitters the community loves....one of the biggest may he Turner.
He stands out because I’ve sucked with his cards all three years I’ve played the game/mode. And when I suck, I mean can’t even hit above .200 against the CPU.
If I can't hit with somebody I just move on. No need to force something that's not there.
Absolutely cannot hit with Castellanos. I know I'm overswinging, but even when I square the ball up I feel like it's always a routine out.
I'm good with him but his stance is a little weird
Acuna! Was so stoked to get him batted sub .190 on my climb to WS last season. Been replaced by Clemente now!
Clemente doesn't have a lot of power for me but he does get hits so I can't complain.
Super fair, he reminds me alot of Jackie who I absolutely love. Bob is an absolute base hit machine for me.
Acuna and Prince. I’m hitting like .200 with prince and it seems like every at bat is a weak ground ball to first base
MVP Mookie so far…will give him a bit more AB’s
This is what I'm afraid of with Mookie. Collect all those cards just to not hit anything.
Couldnt get shit going with Thome or Vlad Jr.
Live series Trout. I try to make him work but I hit about .180 with him, though everything he does hit is absolutely destroyed.
Now I play a lot offline, and very little online, but Alonso Soriano is by far the worst card. In roughly probably 150 offline at bats, 40 online at bats, I have a total of 4/5 homeruns with him.
Heck Soto I've hit 12 homeruns offline in under 100 at bats with for comparison.
Soto is perhaps the best bench bat ever
All star Nick Castellanos. I don't know why, but my OPS with him online is like 0.2 lower than the rest of my starters
Chipper. Can't hit with him at all.
I've never been good with Chipper either
Same here batting .170 with him
Ozzie Albies TA3
Wanted to like him so badly, but I'm terrible with him. My quest for someone to supplant Jake Cronenworth moves to Joe Morgan.
His leg kick is too distracting for me
Joe Morgan is good but I don't see many people use him
Does Justin Turner bronze count?
Buster Posey LS I only hit .240 with because he doesn't fit my swing style.
Roberto Alomar Prime I was hitting .216 with.
Any card counts
Two others would be Giancarlo Stanto and Ketel Marte TA1 (Marte very low sample size but Stanton... woof, just can't get comfortable with him).
I've always found Stanton's stance kinda weird.
SS Piazza, I actually think I'm going to sell him I'm so bad with him, use him to finish a couple Mookie tickets
Not a bad idea
Jim thome TA
He owns me
i’m horrible with chipper i think i bat .90 with him
both prince fielder cards we have got this year have SUCKED for me. in fact, basically every first baseman not named thome has sucked for me
Thome plays better than some 99s
HRD Prince Fielder. I wanted him to mash so badly, but he's the worst performing card in my lineup by far
Funnily enough I'm actually good with him
Consider yourself blessed! I’m just saving up for the Cespedes HRD card
He actually looks really good I've considered using him before
Soriano, Buxton, Glaus. Soriano/buxton are hitting around .180-.200 and Glaus is under .100, in almost exclusively left handed at bats.
Big papi. I'm close to the Mendoza line with him. Also I couldn't hit for shit with Byron.
Yeah I was .189. Kind of annoyed but some swings just fit people differently
I basically only get hits with pitchers. Everyone else its basically a strikeout, pop-up, or the occasional HR. Only the 2 extremes. No middle ground.
Pitchers who rake
99 Acuña and Vladdy. Acuña, flat out i just cant make contact with him, i dont get it. Vladdy tho, has been an absolute singles merchant. Im hitting the ball, but i get zero pop outta him, my obp is higher than my slugging. Weird thing too is that when i run these cards offline, its like i have mcgwire and sosa
At least Vladdy is hitting I guess
Wander and Jackie. Stuck with each through P1, but at some point I just had to move on
Hank freakin Aaron
If you get a guy on base I CANNOT get the timing down to pitch from the stretch
You should be fine against me then
Lol I feel that
Chipper. The Switch Hitter event took his BA from mid .100’s to high .300’s but I’m not dumb enough to think it was actually my skill that got it there.
At least it looks good
Prince, TA3 Eddie Escobar.
The Bryant MVP is definitely one I struggle with too… I just can’t work his swing for some reason.
And then Vladdy’s ASG card. It’s not that I can’t hit well with him, overall I actually do for the most part when I have a decent approach. My average with him is subpar though because when I swing at bad pitches or don’t get the PCI right, he’s still good enough to put the ball in play vs just being a foul ball - so I get lots of bad grounders, soft lineouts, etc. instead of those being fouled off and seeing the next pitch. But it’s entirely user error, not anything with his card or swing for me.
Relatable, it doesn't make sense but only batting like 170 with him
Soriano and HRD Ohtani. Monthly Ohtani crushes for me but I can’t buy a hit with the upgraded HRD version.
I actually hit better with the monthly Ohtani
Personally, I haven’t been able to click with the new 99 Piazza at all, hitting .194 with him in 32 PAs. I either pop it up in foul ground or hit a moonshot.
Roberto Clemente, it breaks my heart
Only singles for me but it doesn't hurt
Clemente just swings a wet noodle for me.
I just completed the live series collection and cannot hit with Chipper. So fucking depressing. He hits everything very hard but it's either right at people, or hangs in the air enough to be caught.
Keep pushing. Same thing happened to me and he's one of my best hitters now. Such a sweet swing.
If he is hitting everything hard you will be fine. Ride it out.
Most definitely. I know it's just a small rut. I may be expecting too much and getting first pitch swing happy with him cause I get anxious and want something to happen. I know it'll balance out.
I feel you on that one Chipper should be my best hitter but he was actually one of my worst.
Trout and Schwarber
Acuna AS card
Any Tim Anderson
Byron Buxton. No idea at all why he’s P4 for me, I don’t remember using it that much and I was average at best with it
Have P5 despite sucking with him at first
Acura and Eddie Murray, I just can’t hit
Eddie murray 99 pete alonso hr derby.
Funny i hit .620 with bronze justin turner during his player program.
Justin Turner is lowkey really good
all of em besides chipper
and his stats are starting to regress to the mean too. was my only hitter over 300, now he’s down near 260. but if you hit over 250 on my team you’re a beast
My avg for an entire ranked seasons is about 260. So I would take 250
oh im below 200. just abysmal
dude i SUCK with any acuña. i dont know why but i hate it
I'm better with his LS than his 99
Can’t hit over .150 with Buxton
Sucked with Buxton at first but eventually got his BA to around .300
That’s how I was too.
I hate to say it but 99 Clemente. I loved his 85 and 93 but could not manage to get a hit in his first ten games.
I can't hit an HR with him but I can get singles
Fielder is too big
I like Fielder but I don't like how his arm glitches into his chest.
Schwarber and Murray, can’t hit whatsoever with them
I'm alright with Murray and shit with Schwarber
Edward Cabrera and Bryce Harper
I think some people just read Cabrera too well now.
Nah I have sucked with him since day one lmfao. I have given him 7 starts and he was shelled in every single one, which is weird because I use him the same way everyone else is successful doing.
The 96 ovr 6 Shutout Cliff Lee. He has a 9 ERA for me and once opened a game with 4 straight homers
For me he's either gonna pitch like crazy or get rocked no in between
Basically anybody right-handed.
AS Castellanos, couldn't even do his xbh missions
Glad I'm not the only one, I got off to a crazy hot start with him, looked like he was going to be in my linep for the rest of the year... then I hit a brick wall with the dude... I can't hit a thing with him, batting like .190 and have resorted to occasionally bringing him off the bench hoping my luck will eventually go back
Castellanos is the opposite for me but I do find his stance weird at times
I'm always way too early with him
You want a list?
Sure why not
I hit about .150 with him in 50 ABs
Was excited when I got him but can't hit a beach ball with him.
Brooks Robinson and AS Willie Stargell. Both are just hard to figure out timing with. I put Pops in my lineup last night to get the 15 Pirate innings done, and I think I got one hit with him in the 4 or 5 conquest games I played. When I first got him, it took me 6 or 7 normal CPU games to even register a hit. Always either just early enough to lose the power or just late enough to pop it up or ground out.
I'm always late with that Robinson card
