MLB The Show 20: Switch It Up Event Overview and Rewards

We bounce from a Live Series event to a switch-hitting event. There will be two Switch It Up events in a row, and the cumulative rewards go up to 60 wins. Your big player prizes are at 25 and 40 wins. At 25 wins you get diamond Prime Shin-Soo Choo (the card I certainly want), and at 40 wins you get diamond Postseason Eddie Murray. Switch It Up 1 will run from May 14 until May 22, and then Switch It Up 2 will run from May 22 to June 2.

Miscellaneous Notes

diamond troy percival price

  • I start with just a community market tip. This event including Breakout Series players has the biggest impact on what pitchers you can use. It’s the easiest way to squeeze diamond pitchers into your lineups. A lot of events have these sort of requirements. With those sort of requirements come some artificial spikes in player prices. For example, Troy Percival (who was a reward in the Live Series event) jumps from 6-8K up to 14-18K on the market. I’m not saying spend lots of stubs on speculative players like this, but it’s something to think about moving forward if you want an off-the-beaten path way to make stubs. Percival’s price will come back down pretty quickly, but you don’t see margins like this very often, and if you can take advantage of them you’ll make a ton of stubs.
  • You’re going to see a lot of the same pitchers for the reasons I just listed above. Overall, I think you’ll see a lot of similar lineups and this will be an event I mostly avoid for that reason.
  • These win totals over a couple weeks are rather manageable if you do want to just get to 40 wins. I don’t love Eddie Murray’s stance in the game and never have, but I do really like Choo’s swing. Regardless, I think both cards will have their fans, albeit neither looks insanely good ratings-wise.

    Going to be playing this exclusively until my Mantle, Chipper, Victorino and Roberts are prestige. Don't even care about the rewards.

    Yea last night were my first 2 games with Chipper. He did not disappoint.
    I haven't played since the patch, but from what I had heard reported it wasn't that much of a change in the PCI size? Don't know if I'll bother playing much this weekend as I just keep on getting super frustrated this year. Bummer but I got my monies worth already.

    This latest patch is a joke....PCI so freaking big that strike outs are a thing of the dinosaur era. But infield pop ups have increased 5 fold.....

    I'm not sure about that yet. I've only gotten a few games in since patch but didn't notice much difference.
    I'm enjoying this event. Last two games have gone into extras. Got walked off and I walked off the other
    Prospect Dylan Carlson has just mashed the ball for me, really nice card I think you don't hear a lot about.

    What is your team name? I just went intro extras this morning with a team from Louisiana.

    After roughly 35-40 events games since the patch I'd have to agree with this now. Today has been particularly frustrating.
    I have not recorded a single strikeout in 8 to 10 games today and pitching is one thing I do fairly well.
    Too often people get rewarded for slamming there PCI and chasing a good pitchers pitch yet I'm patient and look for my pitch only to line out or center it up and it sounds like I swung a chopstick.
    Now I haven't been RS on HOF and Legend so not sure what it's like there with those difficulties.

    Gonna try to get Chipper done, Mantle close, and wherever Victorino/Roberts land I'm good with. Prob won't use them much unless we get events where they are good cards.
    Ran into the guy with the “hit homer W/ Mantle & I quit “‘team obviously grinding for prestige. Since I’m doing the same and need the innings with Feller I took him down 1-2-3....first pitch with leadoff batter Roberts we crush one going far over RF fence and he dashboards. What a piece of ****
    I won some games after two batters in top of the 1st.
    Mantle leads off, I intentional walked him. Chipper bats second, I intentional walked him. The guy quits. LOL

    Dang it, why didn't I think of that? Lol
    I was playing a RS game last night and I went in to the 9th with 2-1 lead. Should have been more, must've had 6 - 8 lineouts and multiple P/P outs and I had 1 hit this guy with the only hit he had being a solo shot with Reggie.
    Anyway he tied it up in the bottom of the 9th. I chose to leave Oswalt in, probably should've went to the bullpen. Top ten he brings in the knuckleballer. I watch the first 2 then hit the 3rd out to dead center with Trout. But he ties it up again in the bottom of the 10th. Top 11 I get 2 more off the knuckleballer Then I brought out Kluber. Game over. I'm so ashamed.
