Gotta think we’re getting a mega star or two from this 90’-00’s themed era they seem to be introducing this year.
I’m betting Pedro and/or Randy Johnson
And I could see AROD making a big come back this year. Would be dopeeeee

Agreed man, would literally love all three of those guys.

They showed it off on the Twitch Stream yesterday at 6:00 pm EST and it was also on their twitter account after the stream.

Ok, thanks I missed it. You think Maddux Signature type card will be good in this game with pitch speeds.

We will have to see when the game comes out. certain cards are just weirdly good like the Waino SS in this years game.

I think Pedro and Randy have to be definites. So we should be getting tons of new pitchers. What about hitters?
Just checking the WAR leaders for the 90's and 00's had some good names that could make (should make) an appearance:
Larry Walker
Craig Biggio
Derek Jeter
Manny Ramirez
Todd Helton
Darin Erstad (was in last year but gone this year)
Troy Glaus
Tim Salmon
Nomar Garciaparra
Julio Franco
Kirby Puckett
Darren Daulton
John Olerud
Jim Thome
Jeff Kent
Marcus Giles
Scott Rolen
JD Drew
Derrek Lee
Brian Roberts
Mark Teixeira
Grady Sizemore
Vernon Wells
Alfonso Soriano
Carlos Pena
Magglio Ordonez
Chone Figgins
Not to mention other pitchers who had success in the 90's and 00's
Kevin Brown
Chuck Finley
Mark Langston
Kevin Appier
Mike Mussina
Jose Rijo
David Cone
David Wells
Dontrelle Willis
Tim Hudson
Barry Zito
Roy Halladay
Curt Schilling
Johan Santana
Brandon Webb
Pat Hentgen
Mike Hampton
Tim Lincecum
Jake Peavy

This could be a whole new crop of AS/PS/BO/IV/R or even SS cards (if there are such things in '20).

It's kind of exciting to think about it!

SDS

With that multi-console contract money they had to have signed so many new guys. Huge cash cow if they did too. They've already released 8 and it's barely February. I'm getting more pumped everyday for 20.

Stephen and Luis did mention during yesterday's second live stream that there would be "dozens" of new legends this year, with an emphasis on players from the 1990s and 2000s, so that's really encouraging. I don't know if that means 24...36...48 new legends, but we should expect a healthy influx of new players this year.

SDS

I just need Scott Rolen in my life, I need Pujols/Edmonds/Rolen.

Hopefully that doesn’t mean at the expense of losing other legends though.

Inevitably, SDS does lose the rights to some guys. It happens every year. I can remember players like Gaylord Perry, Jack McDowell and Yogi Berra being in multiple versions of The Show, but they weren't in this year's edition. Even last year, guys like Darin Erstad, Doc Ellis and Albert Belle were in the game, but they aren't this year. I think SDS will probably lose a few ancillary legends from this year's cycle, but they tend to replace them with big names. This year, we had Willie Mays, Ivan Rodriguez, Rogers Hornsby, Lou Gehrig, Jimmie Foxx, and a ton of other big-name stars enter the cycle. By teasing Rivera, Ortiz, Maddux, Smoltz and Glavine for 20, SDS could be setting up the community to not realize that some lesser-known guys might not be coming back.

If we lose Ashburn and Slaughter...I'm fine with that.

Too bad we lose GrandyMan...
