    Not sure but probably more than the amount of licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie pop.

    Definitely what went through my mind when I read the topic. Wonder if it was intentional or not.

    I don't know, Kelvin Herrera looks so much better on paper, and would fit in the same bullpen slot. What makes Chad Greene so good?

    Herrera is real easy to read. His fastball might as well be in the low 90s, because that's what it feels like. High speed is my weakness, but I slap him around all day long.

    Zilch. There's already enough of them as it is. Plus, I hate seeing someone ranked higher than what their true abilities are.

    Same here. He was a worthy buy off the ticket counter at that time, not so much anymore unless you're a fan as there is far better out now.

  • Lauren82599 posted a comment on My career missions??

    ...

    Quality starts is easy and getting 5 holds in a game isn't necessarily using your bullpen properly. I prefer riding with my starter for a long as possible which is why its taking me so long to get the holds. I'm actually also have the Tazawa player epic and was sitting on 6 holds for most of the year because whenever I did need to go to the pen before the 9th it was usually to a CP classified pitcher. But now that holds is all I need I find myself going to the bullpen sooner than normal and it actually came back to bite me in a few games.

    For quality starts you just have to leave your starter in for 6 full innings allowing 3 or fewer runs... outside of players quitting in H2H its definitely easy to obtain especially if you are playing on rookie (or higher depending your own skill level) and don't even have to win the game to get credit for it.

    At the end of the day though I feel that things like My Career Missions shouldn't be grinded and rather obtain organically while playing the game but I get why people "grind" the stats though.

    Yeah, quality starts are easy. Rookie against cpu to knock them out, and grab holds, saves, and ips if you give up a run, or go for cgso if it's there.

    The two that take the longest are abs and ips. When playing rookie against cpu these two are way out of proportion in comparison to the rest of the stats except for assists which aren't too plentiful on rookie level.

    Thank goodness it didn't effect my game. Not only completed Bell's fourth double for the Rangers epic, but also Kike's third hr for the Springer program. Both these missions royally sucked for me, and am so glad I don't ever have to do them again.

    Took a break in the middle of the game and saw this thread. Needless to say I was filled with dread until I saw that the results were going to go through.

    ARod admitted using but if you’re going to use the Bonds argument of “he was good before steroids” I think you have to use it for ARod too.

    He was good before, but nothing like he became with steroids. Every user should be purged from the record books, and excluded from the HOF.

    Bonds is a hall of famer, Clemens is a hall of famer, Manny Ramirez is a hall of famer, etc.  You don’t need an asterisk - everyone knows the issues that plagued the era of the late 80’s - early 2000’s.  The greats from that time deserve to be in.  Cooperstown is a museum not a moral compass.  Heck - if you want to go further should they also remove the racists and the spit ballers from he HOF too?  I just don’t understand the approach anymore.

    Comment by Phredthebaker 1/25/2018 5:30AM
    Racism is apples and oranges. Being racist obviously isn't a good thing, but being one doesn't make you a better or worse player unlike steroid usage. Damn steroids ruined the record books, something the height adjustment of the pitching mound also did but just not to the same degree.

    I guess I could buy 18 and work the market till I’m ready to play, then I might have a fair share of stubs to start with? That may be the way to go!

    Not a bad idea, but I would at least include conquest. There are usually a few good players that can be obtained, which are worthwhile for the early stages in the game unless you want to whip out the wallet and complete the team collections.
