Long list of best cards at each position

SDS

Ok...I created a list of the best players at each position. They are ranked in order from best to the worst. Use this if you need help for you team! I would also like feedback if I missed anyone or you disagree! This is all from my experience and some from others. A CAP is also an option for each position if you don't like any options

Note: CM= community market

Another note: when the price is free there is some grinding involved. It takes time to get those cards but doesn't cost any stubs

And..another note: TA3 cards can be free but you have the option to buy them as well

Thanks for reading, I hope you like guys my list!

Great list.
The only one that made me say NO WAY!!!
Was Mo as the #1 Righty in the pen.

His card was an absolute bleep show for me and every time I see him I light him up. And I am HORRIBLE at hitting.

Lot's of people I have asked feel the same way.
Other than you, I have never met anyone say Mo was the best.

loved the list, grest conversation starter.

SDS

Def some room for discussion here, but I also think you've given this some deep thought and consideration as well. I'd put Pablo and Wieters above Posey. I think Cano is better 2nd considering how important power is this year, and Jackie and Murphy need serious consideration as higher contenders on the 2b list as well.

Have you played the 99 Maddox in RS? I'm interested in how that card plays - especially at lower RS ranking levels.

This is a great list. I actually have the Finest Jose Ramirez playing left field for me. He’s running out of spots to play for me, he’s crushing the ball

SDS

Thanks for making that list breadstick! You aren’t only tasty, you’re a swell guy as well. 🙂

Really? How were you using him.
I used him long enough to get his Prestige stats, so it wasn't a small sample size.
I sold him for Walker

I just faced Maddox today at the 600 level (all-star) if my opponent mixed up his pitches better I wouldn’t of had a chance. But the cutter inside if you can locate that, and not hang the curveball, circle-change I would say he’s very usable at the lower levels tbh

Is he anything like Orel?
Orel doesn't throw gas but is so good.

Yeah, I like him prestiged @ItsaCanesthing . @mrcityofwin thanks! @MLBTHEJOE shoot...I forgot about J ram, just edited him in. @taco_truck_face I haven't used Maddux yet but he seems ok from others reviews. Pablo looks good as well but I would like a little better stats against lefties and better than silver defense. I love Posey personally so that is why he is #1

SDS

I think this is a great list and it helps me see who I should go after. I will ask though, how is Schmidt not in your top ten at 3rd?

Yeah I faced him last night and the cutter inside is nasty, to both right and left handed batters. It breaks right at the last minute. I don’t strike out looking very often but stuck out twice because I thought it was going to be a ball inside to righties and it just clipped the corners

He has an absolutely terrible swing. Maybe he could make the top 10 but I really hate his swing and stance. Generates no pop. The defense is good though so you could make a case for him in the top 10 if more people like him than I though

SDS

I guess Maddox is sort of like Hershiser...
But I agree with you Hershiser is so good.
In my opinion Hershiser is better. But again if you can dot up the corners with Maddox cutter it’s game over. Lol. Didn’t have as good a sinker as Hershiser,. Probably because it’s not Maddox’s primary pitch

Hersh also has the better motion. Maddux could move up once he gets more reviews

Hersh’s motion is one of the best

I absolutely rake with Schmidt at 3rd. I know many don’t like his swing/stance but I luckily have zero problems with him. And the best defensive 3rd baseman by a mile.

I absolutely rake with Schmidt at 3rd. I know many don’t like his swing/stance but I luckily have zero problems with him. And the best defensive 3rd baseman by a mile.

Hey, it’s your list, I was just adding my experience. No worries. I was a Brett guy all last year and to me Schmidt blows him away this year. It’s all subjective and I know his swing is not well liked.
