would you rather take a pitcher who tops out at 103-105 or take a pitcher that tops out 110-112? i know that higher mph gives up more bombs but would that be the tipping point of taking the lower speed guy or would you still rather have the faster pitcher? parks have a lot to deal with interms of this but lets just say for the intel only park. im only using the intel park for my home because that is the only stadium i have. also, just pretend both pitchers walk an equal amount. im just worried about with speed i should use for my main pitcher

of course u ant the one that maxes out on 112 thats the true pitcher

is maxing at 112 truely the pitcher you want as your best pitcher? say because the faster the pitcher the more liable he is to get rocked for a hr? or would you still say thats not enough for me to think the slower pitcher is my guy?

no ur true pitcher is someone one who usually pitches 110-112 and the next day only needs a little tp to max out again

Listen, your true pitcher is the one who holds pitching skill the longest. He may not be your fastest pitcher. The fastest one may lose skill faster than a Russian Racehourse. And 3 hour after you train him he's pitching 99. So you want the guy who holds his skill/speed the longest, unless you want to train every 4-6 hrs. You train him and he pitches 109-112, but I've heard of faster, 117 or so. But 3 hours later he still pitching 107-110. In that case your fastest pitcher is now your slowest a few hours after you train.

Finding pitchers is hard, it's easier to do it when the team is a brand new 1* team. You have to train ALL your players in pitching for a few days (only pitching). Then look to see who is at the top of the list for pitching skill. That's your man....

also, just pretend both pitchers walk an equal amount.

If you have a pitcher throwing 110-112 and he is still giving up walks, I'd say look for a different pitcher. Usually by the time you get a pitcher throwing 110-112, they don't usually give up walks. Unless you haven't trained them in other skills like running.

wow.. how many new threads are we going to get about pitching? lol

RN hit the nail right on the head..
Here is a little back story for you guys to think about as well.

on 21280r I use to have two pitchers before I switched back to just one.. my backup (Alice Cooper at the time) would only drop about 1 MPH between training.. he would hit 112 - 113 after each remax..

His ERA was 10+, he gave up tons of HRs, Lets just say he didnt stay my pitcher too long.. even after finding the right guys you still have to watch them..
