It's where you put the worst outfielder you have. He doesnt have the arm of Mantle or Trout, so why would I play him in RF? Hes more than adequate in left.

With how bad defense is in the outfield this year there’s not really a place to hide your worst outfielder. Plus I still play a lot of guys on HOF that hit the ball about as much to left as right. I’ll stick with my outfield of walker, trout, and mantle with babe at first and if he doesn’t hit I’ll put Thames back in the lineup

Literally not excited for anything in this inning. Still love ya though SDS! It’s all good. We still got Babe for free, can’t ***** too much. Was just expecting more this inning. The last two innings haven’t had one player that’s made my team.

I mean you can’t expect too much though. Griffey, Piazza, Alomar, Verlander, Pujols, Bench, Ted, Billy Wagner, and Goose were all inning bosses last year. Jimmie Foxx, Kershaw, Honus, and Kenley/Eck are the only 4-5 really desirable cards that have much of a chance at an inning boss spot IMo

Willie Maaaaaaaaays!

[censored], yeah Mays completely slipped my mind. I can personally see him, Kershaw, and Honus being the 9th or 10th inning program

Agree 100% with those selections. Willie will be my endgame CF whenever he drops.

He'll be everyone's end game CF because he won't come out until the end of the game cycle.

Love it, hate on Johnson, you'll hate him when I face you with him 🙂

No

Excellent. Send over the friend request, I'll have him by Early mooning Saturday.

Okay, but it's gotta be on Legend.

Still waiting. I'll go ahead and blast ya for this one, no issues for me.

Good point. I really think these new bosses are for resale or Trout Collection fill-ins.

lol have fun.. early mercy incoming cuz Johnson is super easy to hit. And Jack’s just tough to pitch to in general

SDS

Personally, I loved seeing all those award cards, prime cards (especially two henchmen) and the Topps Now. More choices, lower prices to make that Trout just a tad more affordable.

SDS

I'm intrigued by Johnson, he doesn't have much variety but the control aspect piques my interest to go along with the gas. Being able to locate and push/pull the speeds with a little bit of movement could give people fits. Thomas is essentially a right handed Ortiz and Harper really doesn't fit in unless you're late to the game, which some people might be. Walker and Shef are clearly better overall choices to Harper and with Babe and Musial Frank is probably a Bench bat for most. The biggest benefit to these cards seem to be that they're needed for Trout.

If you didn't grab Ortiz Frank is a viable option, and if you havn't collected for Shef, and didn't get Walker, Harper is solid. Like I said I'm intrigues by Johnson but would have rathered a flamer lefty like the big Unit, or a lefty reliever like Tug McGraw. Overall I'd say a pretty lackluster offering. Honestly though after Ruth and Trout I'm pretty happy with my team, any upgrades will be of minor benefit going forward really.

yeah. these bosses are getting worse instead of better. Where are Kershaw, Verlander, Gehrig, Griffey, Jones. WHo the [censored] is gonna add Johnson to their rotation???????

Me lol

SDS

I like frank but we have so many options at first base that it’s hard to find a spot for him. He doesn’t have a secondary so you can’t use him at 3rd. I was luke warm on picking up Ortiz but he rakes for me. Thames, belli, Musial are all similar to frank.

I must have add but I can’t stand waiting on Johnson to throw the ball. It’s annoy as Ssss

Not one of them making your team, just means your value different attributes than some others. Harper, might or might not make my main squad, but definitely on my Phillies team build. Rollins is locking down short for a lot of people. Maddox in a ton of rotations. That’s what I love about this game is the lineup diversity.

If you already locked in the Signature Series for Trout, they locked them in for you, so you start with some starts.

That's the one thing I didn't understand during the stream. I did the signature series as part of Trout. So what are they giving us because we did that?

I think they ment if you finished the part for trout you already have the players locked in so its basically already done

Absolutely we will have fun! Johnson was stupid easy to hit last year, I think he will be a different card this year with the control and outlier.

On the other hand, outlier on a sinker has caused sinkers to have zero movement. No idea how he will play 🙂

I mean, yeah, but as you know, attributes don't mean much once we get to these 99's. I'll take Harper and see how he works for me, regardless of the attributes. If I don't like him, no loss, I can sell.

Yeah, that's true. I had a guy arguing here that card A was better than card B because Card A had +4 contact. When people make those kind of decisions based on a couple points of contact, they're clearly assessing cards the wrong way, in my very humble and often overly and needlessly aggressive opinion.
