Must have player that should be in all lineups (in my opinion)

SDS

Kenny Lofton. He has played lights out for me , hitting is unbelievable and he gets to everything hit in the outfield. Only down side is his arm strength. On a side note I’m looking for a player to replace Snider in the outfield. How does Choo or Heyward play?

SDS

McCovey. I do not hit well in this game but I am getting better. McCovey is by far my best hitter.

SDS

Choo is really solid...love his swing. Has surprising pop vs righties and hasn't made any errors for me out there. Have used Heyward for a couple games week back, going to give him a real run and see how he does.

SDS

Agreed @BalsamicArrow88 !! Lofton is my favorite this year so far. Not the first time either. He was my favorite a couple years ago too.
His tools (speed, fielding, contact) are just so loud. He's hitting .426/.475/.611 for me online in 60 ABs so far.... Mostly in 700/800 range.. and I'm not a great hitter

SDS

Mickey Mantle - the dude is an al around beast.

SDS

Brujan... so well-balanced w/ sneaky pop.
Just can't hit consistently enough w/ Ryno, Roberts, McNeil, Merrifield, etc. to unseat him.

SDS

I agree with the above poster. If we're taking away Biggio, Sheffield, and Mantle, Brujan has the highest average on my team by a good margin. His speed and defense are great as well.

Brujan hits 2nd after Lofton for me. Just amazing 1-2 speed contact combo

SDS

Ryne Sandberg, just got the prestige version. Don't know if he's ever gonna leave my lineup.

I've got Brujan-Trout at top of my best lineup. Don't have Lofton but I've seen/heard a lot of good things about him, might have to hit the market and shift Trout to LF for a bit. Just don't typically like playing guys out of position.

SDS

Mccovey . Wasnt thrilled to get him but he rakes.
Brujan.
Mantle
T. Gywnn

SDS

POTM Mondesi is the GOAT. Hit better with him and hit bombs more than I do with Sheffield, Mantle etc.

SDS

For me it’s didi, have him lead off and he has like 30 jacks in 120 abs, his swing is just perfect for me and he kills lefty’s. The way he plays you would think he has 125 everything. I have prestige mantle and chipper and he outplays them both offensively, although they are both deadly AF. Didi pit sandberg on the bench and gets the start over brujan for me also at 2b, no errors either.

Lofton was always one of my favorite cards and I used him a lot in last event. He’s my secondary left bench bat behind giambi , took yellich spot for those times I just need a hit and don’t want to risk a double play. I can’t justify starting him over shef or Reggie cause power is the meta this year and they both destroy baseballs. Plus Lofton noodle arm is a liability. I have used him as a pinch runner/ late defensive sub also. Great card to have on the squad regardless

SDS

Same.. for me it’s didi 46 abs 10 hr 15 rbi hitting 370

SDS

For some reason 87 Carlson rakes for me in the Event.. Leads my team with HRs online.

SDS

99 Mantle is pretty solid for me

Same for me. Roberts too, but less home runs from Roberts.

That card is dangerous! His ability to whip off a 465 ft no doubter on a early/ok contact baffles me.

He is nice. I had similar luck in the event with him.

I have Lofton too. He is super lights out. He is always end game center fielder for me every year. I'm tempted to buy Ellsbury but Lofton's swing is unbeatable. Nobody is replacing Lofton in center for me.

Choo is super clutch with ducks on the pond against righties. But he hits doubles and singles not many homers. He is useless against lefties.
