Nothing is required......and if not, use whatever you want for a pitching mechanic

I can't give you any feedback or promise success or failure, I use meter

Play some test games and post results for me!!! I'm pretty happy with the way these are playing right now. I think it's just fine tuning at this point and we'll have them "franchise ready" as soon as the OSFM rosters come out
I played a fantastic game of baseball last night with my Cardinals at the Rays on both HOF difficulty for hitting/pitching. Paul DeJong opened the scoring with a rocket over the right field fence in the 4th to take a 1-0 for STL. I was using Luke Weaver who was cruising along until the 6th inning when he got into some trouble allowing a run to score on back to back doubles. Then Denard Spann homered to make it 3-1 Rays. This would be the final score.

Exhibition Game

Boston Red Sox (ME) @ Los Angeles Angels (CPU)
Pitching Matchup - David Price vs Garrett Richards

This game was played on HOF Difficulty for Hitting & Pitching

David Price and Garrett Richards were locked in a great pitchers duel as the game was scoreless until the bottom of the 5th when Albert Pujols launched a solo HR to LF giving the Angels a 1-0 lead. The score remained 1-0 into the 8th inning when Boston would get into the LA bullpen after Richards ran out of gas as he was well over 100 pitches. The Red Sox loaded the bases with 1 out and Hanley Ramirez smoked a ball in the gap for a double to clear the bases and drive in 3 runs and give Boston a 3-1 lead. The game would go to the bottom of the 9th with the score 3-1 and Kimbrel coming on to try and close it out. Pujols led off with a double to bring the tying run to the plate before Kimbrel would record back to back strikeouts of Calhoun and Cozart as the Angels were down to their final out. Luis Valbuena made a bid to tie the game as he hit a high fly ball deep towards the RF corner, but Mookie Betts was able to get under it and make the catch on the warning track for the final out as the Red Sox win 3-1.

Re: TNK MLB 2018 SLIDERS

Like you, for years I usually play on All Star with similar sliders to yours but this year in carry over Nats franchise, played 2 games on All Star but for the last game of a 3 game series against the Reds I used your sliders on HOF, really like how it plays you really have to hit your spots on meter pitching and work the counts for some reason I seem to be more disciplined when hitting on HOF. Long story short hit my first hr of the season with Trea Turner(high fastball to right center field) think with the smaller hitting cursor helps actually. I won 5 - 2 with a go ahead ph single by Stephen Drew off a lefty with the smaller cursor. Again liked how your sliders play on HOF, gonna roll with these for 10 games to see how it goes. Btw, really digging the ball off the bat, hit variety & the colors really popping now.

Boston Red Sox (ME) @ Cleveland Indians (CPU)
Pitching Matchup - Eduardo Rodriguez vs Mike Clevinger

This game was played on HOF Difficulty for Hitting & Pitching

* Playing this game with a match up of #5 starters on the mound

The Red Sox loaded the bases with 1 out in the top of the 2nd but Clevinger would get out of the jam as he got Christian Vazquez to hit the ball on the ground to Lindor to start an inning ending 6-4-3 double play to keep the game scoreless. Edwin Encarnacion launched a solo HR to lead off the bottom of the 2nd inning and the Indians knocked Rodriguez around for two more runs in the inning to take a 3-0 lead. The Red Sox got on the board in the top of the 3rd on a solo HR by Jackie Bradley to make it a 3-1 game. Rodriguez settled down and kept the Red Sox in the game as the score remained 3-1 until the top of the 6th when Bogaerts made it 3-2 with a RBI single. Cleveland would answer back with runs in the bottom of the 6th and 7th innings to push their lead to 5-2. The score was 5-2 entering the 9th inning as Cody Allen came in from the Cleveland pen looking to close it out. Rafael Devers would single with one out to put a man on for Boston but Allen would get Nunez to fly out and the Sox were down to their final out. Mitch Moreland came up as a pinch hitter for Vazquez and smoked a ball towards the gap but Bradley Zimmer would make a fantastic running catch to take away extra bases and record the final out as the Indians beat the Red Sox by a score of 5-2

Exhibition Game

Boston Red Sox (ME) @ Tampa Bay Rays (CPU)
Pitching Matchup - Chris Sale vs Chris Archer

This game was played on HOF Difficulty for Hitting & Pitching

Chris Sale and Chris Archer were on the mound in a battle of aces and Tampa would strike first when Brad Miller hammered a pitch into the RF stands for a solo HR in the bottom of the 2nd inning to make it 1-0. The Red Sox would tie the game in the 4th when Denard Span misplayed a sinking liner by Bogaerts and the score was 1-1. The game remained tied 1-1 as Sale and Archer were going toe to toe until Boston got to Archer in the top of the 7th on a RBI single by Christian Vazquez. The Red Sox would load the bases as Archer departed and Sergio Romo came on and got out of the jam when Mookie Betts ripped a line drive that was snared on a fantastic leaping catch by Hechavarria to end the inning. The Rays stormed back in the bottom of the 8th as Span singled and stole 2nd base with 1 out to put the tying run in scoring position. Matt Duffy followed with a liner down the 3rd base line that was just fair for a RBI double to tie the game at 2-2. Sale would come back to strike out Kiermaieer for the 2nd out and Carson Smith would come out of the pen to face Carlos Gomez looking to end the threat and keep the game tied. Smith had two strikes on Gomez and threw a nasty slider in on the hands but Gomez was able to fight it off and punch a blooper over the 3rd baseman into LF for a hit to give the Rays a 3-2 lead as Gomez was gunned down trying to stretch it for extra bases on a strong throw from Benintendi to end the inning. The game would go to the top of the 9th with Tampa Bay now leading 3-2 and their closer Alex Colome coming on and he would retire the side in order for the save as the Rays score two runs in the bottom of the 8th for a 3-2 come from behind victory

Re: TNK MLB 2018 SLIDERS

Didn't really like these sliders too much. Felt like the CPU was really awful at pitching and too slow in the field.

Drew 4 walks in 5.0 IP from Cole Hamels with 0K. I've been hitting triples with average speed guys and tagging up and scoring on shallow sacrifice flies. Too many bloop singles in my opinion that probably should be caught. Also a lot of homers and warning track power hits.
