I think all my pitchers have ERA's below 1 (I'm the Marlins) and Ismael Valdes is by far my best pitcher. His ERA is about 0.20 I think with more K's than IP. And I think the reason I don't score runs is because I turned the hitter's eye off. It just seems too fake to me and I'd rather go without it.
A hint for pitching: Keep the ball down, change speeds, and the curveball is your best friend - as is the back door slider with 2 strikes on the batter. Any pitcher with a decent curve and slider can dominate on All-Star.
Use the strategy I posted above to hit. I used to only score 2-3 runs EVERY game, but since I changed strategies the game is much more enjoyable.
To clarify, if your a right-handed batter, and you want to pull it, push the analog stick to the left BEFORE the pitch, and wait for an inside pitch. With two strikes, you'll need to just try to get contact. To me, this is more realistic since most hitters try to sit on a pitch when they're up to the plate. The other day against Kerry Wood, I got 20 hits, but only scored 6 runs
. Got the bases loaded 3 innings in a row, and didn't produce.
