Walter Johnson will be a boss

SDS

Based off the most recent teaser it’s 100% guaranteed that Walter will be an inning boss. The motion in the video is the same, the slight gray pinstripes matches the twins/senators throwback jerseys exactly, and most important there are no sleeves meaning it can’t be Gossage (the only other pinstripe possibility). I will give my account away if I’m wrong.

SDS

Gossage is a good possibility as well. They should release him earlier this year so I'm going with him

SDS

If he is, that will be an easy one to cross off the list.

SDS

Can't be Johnson. He has more freckles on his forearm than what is pictured. Has to be Goose.

Also, just caught the hint for the second boss. From that stance it's Craig Counsell, no doubt. Gonna be the best inning program yet!

SDS

Goose and Harper are locks. Not sure on the 3rd.

SDS

These bosses if our guesses (Harper, Thomas, Johnson) are right are underwhelming at best, considering all of the recent content/bosses.

Harper/Thomas - 1B and RF are two of the deepest positions we have. Will Thomas be good enough to replace Babe or Musial?
I am not sure. Will Harper replace Walker? Maybe, but it will come down to the ratings. I was thinking about putting
Babe in RF (I only need to finish the AS NL Games) and keep Stan at 1B. Walker has become a bench bat,
Defensive replacement.
Johnson is DOA for me if he is a boss. There is a glut of great obtainable pitchers (Orel and Maddux) as well as high end cards like Sale.
Besides, I have never met anyone that was excited about the Big Train and his windup motion.

Gossage might be the pick. Now that one seems interesting and could be at worst your setup man.

No way it’s goose. I promise you that, the jersey is too dark and Goose wears sleeves.

SDS

Goose makes sense but completely throws the “not reusing inning bosses from last year” thing out the window. Walter Johnson(or Blyleven I suppose) makes more sense to me

Missed that in your OP. Good catch. I think your right on Walter Johnson then.

SDS

I think it's Bert Blyleven.

Wasn't 99 Goose the reward for Moments Extreme last year????

I agree, but I’m picking and using Johnson anyways. As a baseball history nut of the early periods he’s one of my favorite pitchers of all time.

Yes but his 95 was a boss in the first inning.

Yeah but the 95 Goose was a first inning boss. They haven’t even reused the Better versions of the 2019 inning bosses in an inning program either(95 Goose, 96 Cy Young, 93? Andrew Jones, 93 Miggy, 93 Vlad)

I actually intentionally walk the first batter of each inning with Walter Johnson to avoid his windup. Otherwise he is a monster.

Blyleven’s motion brings his hands way above his head, and he wouldn’t be wearing the senators pinstripes.

SDS

A poster on reddit found this tid bit on the 2nd boss clue that heavily suggests its Harper. What do you guys think?

That might work against the CPU, but you are asking for trouble online with this approach.
Leadoff walks have a way of biting you in the a$$.

He was the easiest to hit in the game last year. Everything is straight as an arrow. I hope it's him, my BA could use a boost.

SDS

Right now if it's Johnson and/or Harper I am for sure selling. Don't care for either.
