    I brought over the 580 Posada.  Really regretting that decision now.  
    Weren't his skills double Late Innings?  I would think he is still good for WOH.  The 580 max hinders him, but I thought he would still be fairly solid.
    Posada is ROB/ROB like Babe Ruth.
    I keepered him and Ruth and he has been great for me. A switch hitting ROB/ROB is really cool.
    He's no WOH closer but his skills are always on in the early/mid rounds of WOH.
    In season mode, Ruth and Posada are almost always my top 2 for batting average even though Posada's overall rating is tied for last in my lineup.

    Keepers: Ruth/Posada/Paige. ML is SS (RHP/RHP) - I went Platinum June 17

    I have the same 3 keepers, haven't capped Paige yet, but the hitters are clutch against any 5.10/6.10 guy so far.

    Should we be putting anything into our keeper pitcher's skills?
    I have Paige at G10 and his skills at 1/1.

    I say no.  The general consensus seems to be that pitcher skills are all show-no go.  Meaning they don't work. 

    I, personally, feel like they CAN help, but the only ones I would even consider investing in would be Late Inning (preferably for a reliever, of course), or Hot Pitcher (I think it is supposed to activate after 2 K's). 

    Event then, I wouldn't want to waste the resources unless they are a serious long-term player, like ATG.

    I haven't put a single point into pitcher skills all year and I build my team specifically to dominate tourneys. That said, with the free xp that was given out, it's time to embrace the TS! lol

    I decided to embrace the TS this morning - I went from no skill upgrades on any pitchers to 8/8 on the eight D10 pitchers I've got.  My TS instantly jumped by 19,200, which really stroked my ego, but I haven't noticed any performance differences so far.

    Do you go heavy on the lefty hitters, given that most decent pitchers are RH right now?

    Any other tourney-specific strategies?

    All my bats are leftys with skills vs rightys. My 3 subs are rightys with skills vs leftys and/or late innings.

    If pitcher skills worked, I’d never sniff these numbers. FWIW, almost all those games are tourneys.

    Are you hoarding the bonus games?

    It’s just how things worked out. Once I locked up my bracket yesterday, I switched over to tourneys. Ideally, I’d save up bonus games, but they never last too long cause cash keeps me from doing endless tourneys.

    Yes. Tourneys/bgs are basically the same thing now.

    With me being a tournament rookie, do you manual play? 
    Just a Silver team from the wrong side of the tracks, so what do I know? 🤷‍♂️
