Headliners are boring this year

SDS

Is it just me, or have almost all the headliners been super boring this year? I remember being excited by probably 80% of them last year. But this year?? Jake McGee? Michael Brantley? Matt Wieters? Pablo Sandoval? A bunch of FS lamewads? Uninteresting low-90s dorkwads? I’m just sick of all these wads. On the rare occasion I buy HL packs, I’m actually hoping for LS diamonds and not the headliners.

That is all.

SDS

There have been a few I thought "That's kinda cool", like I do like the Pablo Sandoval with C secondary, but I haven't bought any headliners since Kemp, so that should tell you my general impression. They are def boring.

SDS

Problem created by the FS has had a direct impact on these Headliners for me. I have little to no motivation to acquire these guys because most have been inferior to the free cards available.

SDS

Yup I agree there's been Matt Kemp/John Franco/Eric Gagne and Dibble that's it for me.

SDS

Weiters is the best catcher in the game. Flawless defense, switch hitter and his swing is like melted butter.

They're all BOOTY Cheeks.

The only players from the Market I have on my team are Pearson, Dibble and Rodney. Felix too if he counts, but he was earned, not bought.

That’s good to hear. He is also not a headliner.

Actually Weiters was a headliner a few weeks ago at the same time the ducks on a pond packs came out.

He wasn’t? I know I pulled and sold Wieters, and I was 99% sure it was from a HL pack. I don’t think it was the Ducks pack because I chose Salvador Perez in that one.

No he was a headliner for sure. There were 10 diamonds that came out that Friday. 8 ducks on a pond, the headliner (Weiters) and I believe a player program (Vizquel)

He most certainly was a headliner

Hayward has been a fun HL. Weird seeing him actually have pop in this game when it doesn't translate to real life.

SDS

My guess is SDS justifies it by saying "will give you 2 headliners a week instead of 1" but I agree the problem is most of these headliners have been forgettable at best. Sure there have been a few that have been fun (Kemp, Cabrera, Dibble, Franco) but I'm ready to see a 99 headliner. At least most of last years headliners were fun and some were even exciting. It's time we saw a great headliner.

SDS

I agree, 2 out of every 3 headliners are lame. They either need to lower the price or boost the card. But Dibble is arguably the best reliever and Matt Kemp is great

SDS

Schnauzer I love your face but I don’t like how many times the word wad was used in a post which includes Pablo Sandoval’s name. That Panda is close to my heart.

But other than that, yes I agree.

That is all.

SDS

It’s cool that different cards are getting these high overalls, like it’s nice to have a 96 Brantley that you usually don’t see. But at the same time you’re right. None of them are exciting in any way. I remember when McGee came out it was just kinda like ...what?

Wieters is available in the Ducks on the Pond pack.

Vida and Nen were good headliners.
