Thinking about picking him up but his price causes me pause. Just wondering if he’s been great for you guys or if he’s not worth it?
I haven't used him or played against him but I dont think those attributes equal the price
I just faced him on HOF and he was only okay. The pitch speeds are just a bit lower and easier to read than Kluber or Hal who are tough as hell to hit on HOF. If your a big fan the price will probably be really high almost all year because of the 12-0 so you’ll have to overpay at some point, if you’re not a fan I’d just wait it out until a Award or SS choice pack drops assuming it does.
I had him for a significant amount of time. Actually owned him two different times.
He was solid. But not any better than Gagne or Nen. So you’re basically just paying all that extra stubs for a rare BR reward.
Lmao totally read this wrong. I faced SS Glavine. Haven’t faced smolts once. I would second Nen and Gagne though. If they were BR rewards they’d be 100+K like Miller and Smoltz. I still can’t believe I don’t see Gagne more with his price tag.
I pitched about 20 innings with him. I threw about 10 fastballs that entire time. Like 6 of them were no doubters. So I felt like I was limited to the slider and splitter, which was tough. He did about as well for me as Gagne, but certainly not worth the stubs. If his fastball worked I think he’d be amazing.
I haven't used or faced him, but based on his per 9s and pitch selection, he doesn't look particularly scary or worth the price
He's pretty good. That said, I expect his SS later this year to be GREAT! That makes this card pointless. Too bad cuz he's probably my favorite RP at this point. Can't wait for his 97-99 SP card tho.
