Thread: What pitching category can you best get by with being poor?

    Re: What pitching category can you best get by with being poor?

    Well, I've landed him. I tried a godfather offer to move up to the top of the draft to where I thought he'd go (#16 overall, next year's #1 choice, two blue chipper hitters with slugging over 90 and helpful supporting attributes, and a 24 year old pitcher with a 70+ PO, 98 FI, and 58 EN), and was turned down. I ended up dealing a fraction of that for #5, and he lasted.

    An 18 year old with potentials of 99 PO, 22 FI, 97 CO, 91 SY, with a 100 EN. Those numbers will be off, but he is now on my team and I have 5/10 scouting, so they are close enough. I can throw out a 95 RA, CF, 99 LF, and 97 RF in a fully sized park if necessary. I also passed on a 17 year old lefty with 26 PO, 99 FI, 91 CO, 66 SY, and 80 EN to take him. I wasn't sure of the wisdom of that, but it felt like such a unique opportunity.

    Both are a ways away from their potentials, and it will be key to hit that SY rating before PO drops. But I never have less than 10/10 in drills and development, and I'm thrilled to see how this turns out. 400 strikeouts are on the table, obviously. More? Starting games 1, 3, 5, and 7 of a playoff series? It will be years in CSFBL terms before he throws a pitch, but I'm excited.

    interesting. obviously he'll be good but i wonder if he'll be as elite as you would expect with 3 90+ ratings

    Well if the SY develops early, and stays strong til his mid to late 30's, that when combo with PO and CO should make him elite early and very very strong late in his career. George Clark in my signature is an example of just SY/CO pitcher, so you can look at his numbers and get an idea what he will look like after 30.

    Worst case scenario is PO/CO develop early but SY develops slowly. PO/CO pitchers in my experience are not good.
    Life is time, so don't waste mine!

    If you didn't mention, full-sized park, I would have said yearly allowing 50 HRs is likely. Still might be in the cards. low-FI worries me. And high CO/how-PO/low-FI. Seems sometimes those types groove the ball down the middle at an alarming rate.

    Anyway, looking back at my last couple of high PO/SY combo pitchers. Seems, they'd have 15-20 starts of complete domination, and right when I thought they had turned the corner, would be virtually useless. My recent one had a 100 PO (97 at draft time, Top 5 draft pick). He gave me a season with sub-3.00 ERA, 300+ Ks, and was in the Cy race. And also, a solid season as a CL before earning a rotation spot. But, the other 3+ seasons was kind of mediocre. I traded in mid-season of his age 28 season. (mid-1st rd pick and a solid short-term middle of the order hitter). Drafted, a FI specialist the year before (#7 overall) with solid SY. And he is still with me at age 35 (though age 34 was brutal, and his 4 starts this year been hit-and-miss, so he may not survive the season) and have given me 10 years and nearly 150 wins. Was probably my #1/#2 guy for several years, I think 2 All-Star appearances.
