Rank them

SDS

Ok, first, the 99s from the reward path. How would you rank Larkin, Sandberg, Reggie, Minnie and Posey?

Then, how about the high diamonds from the XP path: Kluber, Rickey, Newhouser, McCovey and Rollie?

SDS

Reward Path - Reggie, Larkin, Sandberg, Posey, Minnie

XP path - Newhouser, Kluber, Rollie , Rickey , McCovey

Bonus. Classic choice pack.

Mondesi, Sanchez, Morton, Reyes Robles.

SDS

Reward path:

  • Posey

The best catcher you'll see in this game for a while, better than Biggio

  • Sandberg

Elite 2B, 5 tool player with a killer bat

  • Reggie Jackson

Top tier bat and swing, fielding hurts him a little

  • Larkin and Minoso

Not bad, just not as good as the others

High diamond:

  • Kluber

Best starter in the game

  • Fingers

Best reliever in the game

  • Newhouser

Elite starter at this point, very usable with great stamina

  • McCovey

Great pinch hitter vs righties

  • Henderson

Probably your 3rd best bench bat against lefties, glorified pinch runner

Classic pack:

  • Mondesi

Still elite SS card to this day

  • Sanchez

Is a goon but easily replaced by Posey, still a very good bench bat

  • Reyes

Semi useful starter early game for anyone, can be effective when utilized well

  • Morton

Mop up arm / 6th starter, he's not good but he can eat innings

  • Robles

This card isn't very good, he excels at nothing. Outclassed by Buxton, Acuña, Judge, and maybe even Kevin Kiermaier with his glitchy swing

SDS

Interesting. Of the 99s, I went Sandberg and then Reggie. Don’t regret my choices. Reggie is obviously the play if you solely want a bat. I skipped Posey, who looks really good and I swing well with usually because Pudge was my first evolution pick. I think I’m going Larkin next though.

With the high diamonds, I went Rollie and then Kluber. Rollie has been good and we all know about Kluber. I’m getting close to my next one and plan to go with Hal.

For the classics, I went Reyes (wanted a starter at that time), Gary, Morton and Mondesi. Left Robles for my last pick when it comes. Honestly, I haven’t used any of them very much. Mostly Gary, who is as expected.

@JustASeal0 i respectfully disagree on Robles not being very good. He was my first choice as I was doing good w Garver and skipped the Sanchez bandwagon. I’m not there to look at stats but somewhere between a .330 BA and .800 OPS. FOFT Buxton may be better (never used) but I do much better w Robles then Mondessi with many more PA’s. Mondessi will give you more HR’s tho. Morton just sucks.

Anyone reaching their first pick, don’t sleep on Robles, only downside is outfield options will be tighter then other positions

99 reward path: (I'm currently silver level 22 or 23 but I've used them all in BR or something)
Reggie
I picked him because I needed a bat
Posey
Solid catcher but I have my cap, who I will probably move
Larkin
Lacks power vs righty's but well rounded card besides that
Sandberg
Terrible Swing I'm something like 1 for 7 with him. His stats look great but he isn't great. He could be good for some people but not me.
Minoso
Worst card on here, still decent. He doesn't have power or diamond fielding, besides vision those are the most important to me

High diamond pack:
Kluber
Duh, best pitcher in the game. People are starting to figure him out but I feel like he will always be in your rotation.
Newhouser
He is the best lefty in the game I think (maybe the new Glavine is) He has great stamina as well.
Fingers
I haven't been impressed pitching with him. The only good pitch I feel like is the forkball.
Mccovey
He could start at first and hit. That is all he does.
Henderson
Speed and defense, he can hit against lefties. The worst card choice here but still good.
Classics pack:
Mondesi
THIS IS THE GLITCHIEST CARD!!! Must have, I'm amazing with him, I even play him out of position at 1st base where he has bronze fielding.
Morton
I have trouble against him but his fastball is flat.
Gary
I don't need a catcher assuming I get posey. I haven't found him outstanding.
Reyes
Average starter, could possibly find a spot in the back of your rotation
Robles
Not glitchy, has speed and defense. I don't feel confident with his hitting stats at the plate.
Those are my rankings, I've used all of them this year or in previous years

.800 ops wouldn't touch my squad, everyone I use has a 1.250 ops or higher

I have an .800 ops with Robles, he stinks
