Dustin May and Ken Griffey Jr. WS Rewards

SDS

Thoughts? Dustin May could be fun to use. A lot of people like Griffey but i don’t know if i’m feeling this card.

SDS

That May card is probably best SP in the game right now. Nasty pitch repertoire, great per 9’s with 99 velo/break to boot

SDS

At this point I think SDS is just trying to incite toxicity....another "Future Star" that is stupid OP with a sinker/cutter combo.

They aren't even trying to hide that they are mailing it in

SDS

Just here to face-palm at all the whining....please continue....

SDS

That Griffey card is Jason Heyward with lower contact vs R

SDS

Terrible contact splits on the Griffey and they shoulda put high tier gold on the defense to juice the contact. I swear the sds rating adjuster is clueless on what people want in this game, completely squandered what coulda been a great World Series Griffey reward.

SDS

Dustin May is endgame. Holy [censored].

I’m not whining whatsoever lol. I will use Griffey when his 99 is available. But i’m stating that his 95 wouldn’t make my squad.

SDS

I was kind of annoyed until I saw the Griffey card, pretty underwhelming.

The Dustin May though, does he actually throw a sinker? It just seems pretty odd that almost every one of these future star pitchers have sinkers.

Wasn't intended for you. Your post was very reasonable. The comments section will take care of itself 😉

Oh yes we’ll in that case I agree. People complain about these future stars cards too much cause they’re bad at the game

Yeah he throws a sinker. It’s his primary fastball according to brooks baseball, statcast and pfx. Plus, based off watching him, his primary FB is definitely a sinker.

Most young pitchers are being taught the sinker because of its effectiveness. So if you think about it, it’s not very odd

SDS

I think he's just tired of facing sinkers 😛

Actually it really depends on the pitcher. I wouldn’t teach a pitcher with a high spin/high spin efficiency 4s fastball a sinker. It’s counterproductive.

Sinkers were a huge thing during the steroid era and after, but hitters have adjusted to them and now the high 4s fastball is the fad. They generate more swings and misses.

SDS

The fact that the 3 highest overall cards on the market are future stars at this point is ridiculous.

Can we please move on from unproven players now?

SDS

Holy moly that May card is S+ tier right there with Kluber

SDS

Why in the F is there a 97 Dustin May card...
It's so uneven.. Gore, Mize, Luzardo and Pearson are all better pitching prospects and have 90 rated cards at best

What was the point of the prospect series?? It feels so half baked, like they pivoted after the fact and completely messed up the balance of everything..

Content this year is a total F so far for me, not in quantity but in half baked ideas and a terrible roll out of these bad ideas

People complain because these cards are bs. At 97 he is already being called one of the best, and he ain't done jack. Total slap in the face to those who came before.
