I believe these are all the cards that have a chance to be featured in the July POTM Program, let me know if I’m missing something, got something wrong or predictions of who we’re going to see.

SDS

My hopes: Schoop, Grandal, Diaz, Santana, Paxton
Realistic guess: Schoop, Nola, Diaz, Laureano, Carpenter

Since Schoop already has a flashback gold I don't think he'll get another card. Also, Nola has the 88 FOF card so no reason to give him another diamond.

My guess: Santana - Diaz - Grandal - Paxton - Carpenter

Paxton would be nice because he doesn't have a mariners card right now. If they do Carpenter there's no need for another flashback for him (getting a SS last year was ridiculous). The first two are total wild cards though... they could be any hitter and relief pitcher on the list with a mediocre live series card.

SDS

Yuli please, we need more Astros rage

Grandal would be awesome as well.

They would be perfect for my All Cuban team

They won’t put two lighting cards in there though. So one of Carp/Paxton is out 100%

Tommy Kahlne (loved the art work for this card)

True. But by that time, the final cards have to be really good to make anyones lineup (or rotation in this case) so I think they can afford to have 2 ~ 95 OVR diamonds in the program. Otherwise i'd swap in Clevinger (91 ovr) for Paxton

SDS

I bet we see a 2019 Jack Flaherty in the coming months. Could be July, could be August.

He has an august card and I could definitely see him being the stage 4 reward just before the lightning for august if SDS keeps the same pattern going for the monthly awards.

SDS

If those are the choices, then I feel like paxton is a lock for the lightning card. I don't see them going with another astros player so soon after correa, and as a 91 the carpenter card isn't good enough to get anyone excited about working on the program at this point in the game cycle.

SDS

I hope we have actual baseball back before too long. I’d like to get a few lightning cards for this current year too.

SDS

My guesses are Schoop (only 2017 fit), Diaz (good reliever option), d’Arnaud (they need to add a catcher), Danny Santana (utility guy they don't have yet), and James Paxton (maybe one of the only pitcher lightning cards all year)

I agree and I also think we'll see Paxton but I wouldn't rule out carpenter as SDS will buff the card into a high 90s if he is the lightning card

SDS

Kahnle please. Wouldn’t mind a Diamond Corey Dickerson either.

You have to throw logic out the window man. Lol. Correa had a FOTF Card and was still the lightning card as a SS right after another SS was lightning. There were about a million posts saying “it won’t be this guy because he has this” and we still get those guys. Lol

True. I didn't think we would get another Bellinger also. Although 92 Nola would be even closer so his FOTF card then Correa.

SDS

Pham (Wouldn't put it past SDS). d'Arnaud, Diaz, Loreano, Yuli. I would love for a Grandal card but don't see it happening. Also SDS could sneak in the 88 Chris Taylor card from 17 somewhere.
