Stuck at 3B. Can't hit with Schmidt

SDS

Lineup help thread should be stickied for posts like this, but..

Finally gave up on schmidt. Maybe I just suck with him, but his swing and stance feels funky. I stuck with him and got better, but could never catch up to high and inside fastballs with him.

I need a righty to keep my lineup balanced, unless I sold another position player for a righty. I'm thinking Killer, Pablo, Matt Williams, or Michael young. I'm tired of my carousel at third base so any reviews would be helpful.

1 - Lou Brock LF
2 - Eric Davis CF
3 - Rabinson Cano 2B
4 - Third Baseman??
5 - Cody Bellinger 1B
6 - Carlos Corea SS (Will be Rollins)
7 - Larry Walker RF
8 - Buster Posey C

I have 135k stubs, and I'll probably buy more during the sale.

SDS

They literally just released a 95 Edwin Encarnacion for free. Maybe worth it to grab him and give'em a whirl?

Try Brett,he's the 2nd best 3B behind Schmidt.

SDS

Chipper is still great too

I just gave up on Schmidt as well. I was playing him at first during the event to get Sheff on field at third.
I struck out a TON with him. I felt like his swing was too slow.

How have you done with Davis?
I cannot hit at all with him either. His low vision kills me. Then again, I am trying out a new camera for hitting.
But man, I swing and miss so much lately that it could just be me.

Killer is a good option.

SDS

Killebrew.

SDS

I know you said you want a righty, and if that's a must, then I'd say Killebrew. He mashes.

That all being said, if you can put a lefty in, GEORGE BRETT. The man has a swing like butter.

I really want to get him in the lineup, but he'd make me too left heavy. I might just do it anyway.

Also getting Edwin right now, but he seems like a bench bat.

Another option would be playing Correa at third. I did it when I was grinding for his and Didi's prestiges, and he did fine there.

Um Chippers swing is butter

When did they release an Encarnacion card?

SDS

If you like speed, 99 Jackie has been fine for me at 3b, also Ryne Sandberg has had no problems.

Just now, in a new "starter showdown", super easy to get.

If you can’t hit with Schmidt, don’t bother with Killebrew, similar slow swing. I’d recommend George Brett who swings the bat like Eric Thames, or Chipper Jones. Another option you may not have thought of - Minnie Minoso.

I disagree with your first statement. Schmidt seemed to have little pop for me, and Killebrew hits everything hard. I sold my TA3 Schmidt and put in the killer and haven't looked back.

Do you know if incomplete Moments from previous stages count toward future stages?

I'm on stage 3, and using 88 Jackie in ranked to complete the challenges may be difficult and set me back. If I could finish a Moment from stage 1, and have it count toward stage 3, I would avoid that.

Doesnt work. Once you get max points in a stage, you cant get anymore rewards from that stage

SDS

I use a Killebrew/Brett platoon and I'm pretty happy.

SDS

Edwin was easy to get. They are just giving that card away. Nice bench bat.
