Catcher / 5th Starter Recommendations PLEASE

SDS

I can't deal with Prestige Biggio anymore. Weakest bat in the game it feels like. My opponent and I just went a combined 0-8 with him, I've tried everything.

As for SP, I have:

  1. Kluber - Still ol' reliable and I love that slurve
  2. 97 Wood - My favorite pitcher, 101 MPH plus the slurve and 2 off-speed pitches is fire
  3. Orel - Only a few starts w him but I can see why people like him, really good movement on pitches
  4. 99 Paxton - like having one lefty and he's the best one right now that doesn't cost 350K stubs.
  5. Maddux - I'm done w him, through 3 starts he has a 13.5 ERA, giving up runs in the first inning each time. His control is good, but not good enough to make up for the slow velo.

I have Greinke locked in, but I'd love to know if anyone else is a must-have.

When is the best time to sell Maddux? haven't paid attention to previous boss prices.

  1. FOtF Shohei Ohtani - can hit too!
    Roy Oswalt is good - esp. w the slow curve
    and FOtF Juan Marichal is nice to use too.

CAP Catcher ( i made a switch-hitting Josh Gibson )
or awards Buster Posey was my clutch goto earlier in the year.

SDS

Cole Hamels is another good lefty and a good #5 (mine currently), and he won't cost a lot.

SDS

Ohtani isn’t good anymore. Same with Oswalt lol. Hamels and Leiter are good. For catchers I would go with Posey for now

SDS

Try Roy Oswalt or Spencer Howard. Those two and Wood have been the three I have had the most success with.

SDS

Also, for catcher, Jorge is an absolute MONSTER and only 20k.

SDS

Hamels is good, so is Paxton. If you go through the Ruth program Seaver is really good too

SDS

I use Sandoval at catcher and love him. That new Posada has been hitting for me too.

SDS

I like John smoltz. I like biggio myself but cap, posey, posada, and even grandad work for me too

SDS

Catcher I'd go with Posada, Panda, or Wieters. Wieters has the best defense. The other two make up for any deficiencies behind the plate with their bats.

For another P, Cole Hamels or Lodolo, perhaps?

SDS

I’d roll with Brendan McKay as your 5th starter. He’s been pretty good in my experience and should be pretty cheap
