Need a new Catcher, picked up Pablo for 53k. Worth it?

SDS

I did a search, not much info on Sandoval. I had to move on from Torre, he was a free out. It was between Pablo and Wieters, liked Pablo's bat a bit more.

Anyone use Sandoval behind the plate? If so how is his glove, and bat? Thanks in advance.

SDS

Good underrated 2h swing (Switch is always a plus)....does nothing bad or great behind the dish. If you have good PCI placement I'd go Wieters because he's lights out behind the plate and you still get the switch-hitting. I only prefer Sandoval because I benefit from the vision/contact because I'm a spaz with my PCI.

Thanks a ton! I'm not the best at the plate myself, which is why I went with the Panda. Glad his glove plays okay. Should be a big boost over Torre offensively.

Pablo is the best in the game imo

SDS

ah man, just got him for 30K. The flash sale tanked his price. He is fantastic, but not so fantastic behind the plate. If you throw in the dirt his blocking is questionable. He's fantastic at 3rd however. (second time I've had him)

SDS

Biggio at catcher always.

SDS

Yeah I'm a bit salty, I packed JD last night, sold him for 55k. Now I see JD at 60k and Pablo around 35k. Forgot about the Flash Sales today.

Still, sounds like Pablo can hit, which is what I need. If he is just okay with the glove that is fine. Sadly don't have Biggio yet, working on it.

SDS

Wouldn't recommend playing Panda at C under ANY circumstances.

What about Yadi? I see his price dropped, have you (or anyone) had luck at the plate with him? I figure the glove is solid. Would have to sell Pablo and Greinke to get him though.

I picked him up for the event. ZERO past balls in like 15 games and don't run on him. Definitely get him if you are looking for a solid catcher. He's a wall behind the plate.

The yadi looks good especially his fielding idk of its worth the price

SDS

Yeah I see Yadi is shooting back up in price. I'm gonna try Pablo out at C first in the event, I see he is a Prime Card. If he works out that is great, if not I may go for Yadi.

SDS

Just got him for 33k during the flash sale

Pablo? Good grab if it is him, stupid me forgot about the sales today.

Win some, lose some I guess, but that is a good buy as I assume he will go back up to 55k or so.

SDS

I sold some players and I’m wondering who to buy looking for anywhere lol I’m at 150k

SDS

Im liking Yadi.

SDS

CAP for me. At least for now. He is my best hitter. I think the key is finding your CAP the best swing for you. I do wish there was a catcher replacement though so I could sell all of his gear lol.

SDS

Matt Weiters is the best C in the game

Second this. Wall defensively, great arm, switch hitter, slow as a snail but I'll take it with all the good. Easily best C in the game. Sandoval at C is gonna cost more games than win.

Pci is small no doubt but if you can get a high fastball he absolutely mashes. Even if he hits sub .300 for me the defense and switch hit ability is such a plus for me. You literally cannot run on him
