LF Options

SDS

Looking for somebody new for LF. Options are Ellsbury, McCutchen, Charlie Blackmon, or Kris Bryant. Who should I roll with?

SDS

Blackmon

SDS

Of those I agree Blackmon but have you tried Minnie? He is playing great for me

SDS

Try out Carlson! Not a bad bat and diamond defense

SDS

Of those? Whoever still has gold fielding in LF as their secondary.

(I value gold or diamond defense in the OF.)

SDS

Lou Brock

SDS

Bryant is a beast for me. But the price tag

SDS

Hide Ruth in left field and use one of the many first base options at first

SDS

New Yordan is free and rakes

Is there a benefit for having diamond defense players compared to gold other than the 4 defensive ratings (fielding, reaction, arm, accuracy)? In other words, if a gold defensive player has a 85 reaction and 85 speed. Will he get to the ball slower than a diamond with these 2 attributes at the same rating?

SDS

Ellsbury seems to get me every single time I play against him, I just lost a game where he pretty much single hanedly beat me. 2 hr's and stole a 2 or 3 run homer to end an inning. Him and Tony Gwyn give me a good pounding every time I play against them it seems.

SDS

This Yordon card crushes. He's slow, so slow. Hes slower than that 37 speed attribute would indicate. But hes free and he hits bombs. 100% worth the occasional gapper he won't get to.

SDS

Well if you can spend 30-40k, you can get Erik Davis.

He's got 96 speed, 90 plus power and contact for both sides, and has very good defense.

SDS

I’m using Kenny Lofton, he still gets diamond defense in LF, he covers a lot of ground because of his speed and is a decent bat

SDS

Lou Brock is a great lead-off hitter for me. And because of his speed he runs down a lot of fly balls despite his silver fielding

SDS

you must use FS carlson... switch hitter and diamond fielding. hasnt left my lineup since he came out.

SDS

You didnt mention him but Larry Walker is probably my favorite lefty hitter on the game. Decent speed, and not too much of a liability in LF

SDS

I use Mickey in left.
I have got the Big Fish in center. He seems to do less of the no urgency animations that would drive me nuts with Mickey.

Over 90 fielding gets better animations. The higher reaction the better jump you get on the ball.
