With THREE choices, is anyone honestly not taking Bo?

SDS

If so, please explain. I want to get inside the mind of a lunatic.

But for real, even as an owner of Larkin, Rollins, Jackie, Hornsby, Bryant, Killebrew, etc., there's no way this guy won't find a home for me somewhere.

SDS

I would like to hear that explanation as well. I plan on taking Bo, Clint and Yordan. Might buy Shaw, but not sure.

SDS

He wouldn't make my lineup. Cap at SS all day. No comparison.

If I want to play with fake players I'll play Super Mega Baseball. But even still, his eligibility should get him somewhere.

Speaking of which, I haven't watched enough Blue Jay games to know so am I to assume during this stretch he has actually played at all three positions? I didn't know if they were just being generous since I would expect the card to represent him accurately on both offense and defense during that week.

SDS

I'd find it weird for someone not taking him just because he's more expensive than all the others, so why wouldn't you take the most expensive in a choice pack?

Yup. Ill take whichever 2 are the most expensive at the time.

SDS

I sold Bo, didn't need him for the voucher.

SDS

SERIOUSLY considered Nido, b/c at this point, I'm putting a strong emphasis on filling out individual team grind lineups and i already have PL Bo.

But when I discovered Nido doesn't have any secondaries and he'd never beat out Piazza, it become a moo point.

SDS

Yea I have prestige chipper 3rd cap ss and Hornsby 2b. No need for bo.

SDS

I went Bo, Alvarez and Frazier. I bought Nido and Hayes just to help fill out the set. Nido is terrible even by catcher standards.

SDS

You are all going to be upset you didn’t keep all of them when the POTM cards release

SDS

I haven't picked yet, but i dont know for sure who i am picking, but i could maybe not pick him. I already have a Diamond Bo, sure it is inferior, but why get another one. I only play online to Prestige players or do missions, so since he can't be prestiged, I dont care if he is the best MIF in the game. And if Tatis is August POTM, that is a player I will definitely go for.

Again not saying i wont take him, but its not a given

SDS

when i got him, he was double the value of anyone else i wish i could have taken him 3 times haha

How many topps now do we need for POTM?

SDS

Just bought him when his price came down some because I'm not sure I'll do the moments.

To be fair, giving players insanely boosted cards off an extremely small sample size kinda makes them “fake players”, too.

SDS

Took Nido, Bo and Yordan. First game played all 3 against cpu on HOF. Nido 3-5 with 2 no doubters. Bo is now 0-12 in 3 games. Nido is not as bad as everyone makes him out to be. I picked Nido for the diamond d and his offense has been great.

SDS

I actually didn't pick Bo, because he was the cheapest to buy at the time I picked. I bought them all though because I think JT Realmuto will be a Monthly card and if I'm buyng that I might as well get the whole set

I agree, I’ve been buying them all every time they release (at least the ones I didn’t get in the packs). I have a strong feeling that the Tatis FOTF 99 was a precursor to a players of the month Tatis. Especially with the great feedback coming from that card.

SDS

There can be only one "Bo". Bo Jackson. So, I will not take him on principle.

P.S. Full disclosure, I selected Bo. This proves I am not a lunatic. But I do it under protest.

P.S.S. WHERE'S MY BO JACKSON CARD.

P.S.S.S. SDS, when you release the Bo Jackson card as part of TA4, I want the added animation where he breaks his bat over his head.
