Leening into inside Baseball Pitches

Post by Chad » Fri Sep 13, 2002 10:51 pm

Ok this was a long time coming, it's a part of baseball to take one for the team. Anyway to get on base is a good way to get on base. But when your arms, head or legs aren't on the line it's quite a bit easier to lean in on that electronic pitch.

I think that pain should be reflected in a score deduction, but this isn't a dictatorship so here's the vote.

The reason i bring this up is in Mocha's last upload, he scored 31 runs in 5 innings with 22 leaned into pitches, and in the last four innings 2 runs were scored, and guess how many leaned into pitches: 0. When i watch baseball i want to see homeruns and great defencive plays not a mambo of people walking from first to home...

Consider a score 33-4 with 22 hit by pitches, 18 actually scored

With (1) the marp score would be 33-4-22=107
With (2) the marp score would be 33-4-11=118
With (3) the marp score would be 33-4-18=111
With (4) the marp score would be 33-4=129

NOTE: if 1,2, or 3 win, this rule would ONLY be appled to games where you CAN easily get out of the way of a pitch being thrown at you.

Let it go, Chad. Seriously, you get too worked up over this silly issue. Breathe in, breathe out...

I vote that we find people who make their players lean into pitches and hit them once for each time they leaned into a pitch.

As far as scoring goes... if someone's doing it excessively, well, they shall be mocked as usual.

I will not be mocked. ACTING! :)

oh well, i remit. just trying to credit people who put in hard work get first place... you know... actually rewarding recordings that hit the baseball with the bat more than with their body. it'll be a *joy* for everyone to make recordings based on the computer opponent that hits batters more than throws strikes...

jeeze try to put 2 legitimate cents in and people get all over you. so sue me. no wonder there are escapers of the attitudes around here.

It's just a game, man... generally a more "exciting" baseball game would be one that was a close game, no?

If the AI is dumb enough to keep throwing balls at your batters, then what's to stop someone from exploiting this stupidity? Not every game suffers from this, it just seems like 2020 Super Baseball is the main offender. So just suck it up and let people get hit by pitches if they want... if you want to see "real" baseball, turn on ESPN. That's all I'm saying.
