I am currently playing MLB the show with a RH pitcher in RTTS mode.

What new pitch should i add to my current pitches?

I throw a 4seemer, change up and cutter.
Had to throw the knuckleball out because could not control it...

So what new pitch?

Curve, Slider?

curve, slider and cutter are too similar imo, same movement and not a ton of difference in speed. depends on which one you like more though, I hate throwing curves since I hang them too much, but some people like them more


best RTTS pitching repertoire imo = Running fastball, Cutter, Circle Change, Slurve. Two fastballs that break opposite ways, change that breaks same way as my best fastball and I just love the slurve for getting a cheeky strike or a waste pitch

I was pumped for a conversation about real pitching :(

Slurve awesome. I love making righties (RHP here) have their knees buckle.

brb, nailing in framing nails through scrap mahogany when I was 12 to make my curveball awesome.

Thanks brah

Would this make sense then: 4seem, change up, cutter, slurve? What possible 5th pitch you would suggest?
I cant afford to throw out another pitch from my repertoire since all the progress gets lost with cancel a pitch.
Throwing the knuckle ball was funny and helped me alot going thru the minors but i wouldnt control the sucker anymore lol.

5th pitch i'd go 2 seamer. something to throw into righties and I love getting Ks on the inside on lefties.

the cutter and 2 seamer is a deadly combo too. throw 3-4 cutters away then bam 2 seamer in. instant K.
