Whats a pitch you just cant hit? and if you do hit it your out
By - gaetanobranciforti
Inside fastballs are auto outs for me. I am one for like 600,000.
For me I either get jammed, or I hit it out. There is no in between
I am an idiot. I read inside fastball as slider immediately after it is thrown and can't time it. Especially if the pitcher is a southpaw.
Yep. High and inside fastballs I'll never catch up to idk why
Slurves just make no sense to me. My brain just can’t understand what the ball will do.
I forgot about that pitch, ya thats another i just cant hit
Goose’s 95 slurve blew my mind, bought his 99 as soon as I heard it was out. That slurve paired with outlier fastball is an evil combo
It should be an 800k card honestly for how effective it is.
I got lucky and grabbed him around 220-230, wish I had picked up multiple
All of them
Front door sinkers are the bane of my existence
Ya sinkers are tough
Sliders at the back foot coming from opposite hand pitchers. I just can't lay off them.
I know that feeling sometimes
Any and every offspeed pitch in the dirt.
Can’t hit them for obvious reasons, but still swing…every time.
Changeup in the dirt!!!
When a slurve is thrown my brain malfunctions.
Fastballs under the strike zone
If it’s low strike zone I’ll take it 450 but if it’s too low I’m dead
I think a good portion of the player base is like this. I think 70% of the fingers I give up are fastballs down, and I don’t really throw them that often. Just once maybe twice a game to show that I will so the off speed can be more effective. I’m almost better off when I fuck up the timing and it ends up like 2 ball widths above the bottom of the zone because those get popped up.
Honestly im surprised more people dont aim for those locations in general. Pitches at the edge of the strike zone are waaayyyy easier to hit than ones a couple ball widths into the zone.
If you live that way you’ll get rocked. They live on the edge because the best way to get you out is to get you to swing at pitches out of the zone. I start every game with either an up an in cutter that gets just out of the zone (or slider down) and if they don’t swing I’ll throw something back door that moves the other way. If they take the first and swing at the second I know I’m in trouble.
yeah you dont wna live there but you can get guaranteed pop outs and ground outs by occasionally pitching a couple balls widths inside the zone. Much harder to get the pci there than the edge.
How about pitches I can’t throw and have cost me many games? Ohtani’s splitter on pinpoint. Arguably his best pitch but I think it’s literally impossible to throw
Any 2 seam fastball
This. Those get taken yard every time unless you get one to start outside corner and tail far outside. Or a curveball you get a perfect pinpoint on beneath the zone that goes perfectly down the low middle part of the plate.
Marcus Stromans cutter…anytime i use it it gets hammered
Do you have a Xbox series X controller?
I have an elite series 2 controller
FASTBALL. I cannot hit a 4 seam fastball to save my life. I can’t time it up no matter the speed, and my pci thumb just does whatever the hell it wants to do. I can hit any other pitch reliably but once they realize they can just cheese the fastball I’m in for a long game
Lol…im the exact opposite…off speed pitches mess me up
A homie and I were playing a friendly last night and he was using Grom. He was pumping fastball, even telling me when he was going to throw one at times, couldn’t hit it. As soon as he throws a change or slider or curve, knock. It’s ridiculous honestly
Lol…im the mets in my franchise and he is sick, 13-7…..1.98 era, .75whip, 242 k’s in like 190ip
Fastballs up or high and inside
Haven’t been able to hit them since 16 the show
I just pop them up or swing through it
I cant lay off the high fastball
Literally anything on the inside of the plate and also high fastballs. Nothing like dropping my PCI and getting my doors blown off.
Ur user name is awesome lol
All of them.
Dotted bottom corner sinkers. But than again after watching the McGunski YouTube video it appears it’s pretty much impossible
…those thrown by Pitchers.
Those are the worst
Inside slider is a VERY difficult pitch to lay off of for me. Even if I don't bite the first time just throw it again and i can't help myself
I feel u
If you throw a change up I will miss it by 10 ft. Outlier fastball degrom slider no problem but if you throw a change up no shot I’m hitting it
Change up down for me i couldnt hit it with a 10ft orr
Fastball up and away, i might as well be blindfolded
It’s close to impossible to hit certain pitches, see McGunksi’s latest video. The pitches he talks about are the ones we all struggle with, because it’s literally impossible to get your PCI squarely to certain pitches. This needs to be fixed.
Only a problem above my pay grade. In All Star the PCI is big enough that you can get it to go. If I ever get past 700 then new problems will be considered. At least I'm hitting .290 this season.
anything with 99 frank Thomas
Fastball up and in when facing a pitcher that throws with the same hand as I'm batting (e.g. Right handed hitter vs RHP). I can physically hit it, but I'm ALWAYS late and it results in a pop up like 95% of the time.
Changeup low is also pretty hard to pick up, but I occasionally do get it so it's not as bad
I think im batting .000098 against low change ups lol
I can never seem to hit inside off speed. Always late
Anything Edward Cabrera pitches (pain)
I dont think i faced him yet.,,,im in second season of mets franchise(2020)
That FUCKING Degrom Slider
Thank god im the mets in my franchise
Sliders low and away. I know it’s coming yet I still whiff on it every single time
I cant touch sliders away
Inside cutters/sliders with opposite handed matchups. I swing every. Fucking. Time.
Lol mines….i always swing on fking 2 strike high heaters
Cutters from RHP to lefty hitter. Hate that Mariano card. 😭
Fastballs down the middle, I’m not sure why but I just cannot hit then
Slider down and away…….slider up and away…….slider down and in…….I think I see a pattern here.
Circle change with an outlier pitcher like Nolan
Change in the dirt.
Anything from degrom.
Luckily hes on my team in franchise
Changeups anywhere. My brain sees fastball. My thumb sees fastball.
Gotta get em to work together
The splitter I can not catch the fucker for anything
Pitches inside and slightly up or down. I also gotta problem chasing pitches made with a sidestep delivery
Yo same here with the side step, plus the side arms i have a really hard time
The up and in sinker to same handed batters is still hard to get the timing down on. Other than that, I struggle with any pitchers with severe velo ranges (fuck Nolan Ryan)
Anything inside and curveballs-I’m always early on them and can never notice the pitch
U struggle with curveballs as well unless the pitcher makes a mistake and leaves a hanger
Slurve. I was doing the Ryan Zimmerman program and playing the Nats on AS against Erick Fedde. I. Could. Not. Hit. It. Additionally I could not stop swinging at it. To this day I can’t hit slurves
Dude same here…why cant we STOP swinging lol
Fastballs down the middle. Sometimes 12-6 Curve balls I have trouble timing especially if they are in the zone
Fb down the middle?? Really?, weird i crush those
I miss it mostly because I don't expect it which leads to the flick down or just miss it causing a pop up haha
I get it
Sliders breaking toward me, and sinkers
A big curve that starts in the middle of the zone and drops below the knees
High inside sinker from a right handed pitcher to a right handed hitter
Everything im trash at the game😭
