August POTMs

SDS

Everyone seems to be in agreement that Tatis will be the lightning card, who else does everyone think will be in there? There are usually 5 total right? I’m guessing Charlie Blackmon and Kyle Lewis will be two of them. And I assume there will be a pitcher or two, maybe Bauer or Hendriks or Bieber?

SDS

Lewis and Bauer? Yes. Along with Brandon Lowe. Blackmon, Beiber, and Hendriks? No. Beiber and Hendriks getting Topps Now cards immediately disqualifies them. Blackmon would have to be the lightning card to get a better card than his awards card. Since Tatis is likely the lightning guy, Blackmon is out

You’re right about the topps now. I forgot about Bieber and don’t remember seeing one for hendriks. But I agree.

SDS

i think Soto could be in the mix

SDS

Teoscar Hernandez is could get a low 90s card, up to 10 Homers with a week left

SDS

Kyle Lewis, Brandon Lowe, Josh Staumont.

Staumont has a ridiculous line.

11.1 IP, 0.79 ERA, 23Ks, WHIP 1.15, 6 walks.

SDS

It's been said, but Brandon Lowe has to be the second highest card. SDS rarely does this, but his defense needs a boost as well. He's playing great defense at 2b and solid D in left or right field. His vision should be much higher in a juiced card too because he isn't striking out as much now like he was last year. First couple weeks he was, but since he got rolling, his plate discipline has been much better!

I think Staumont gets the #2 card. Lowe or Yastremski get the #1.

You think Lowe gets the top card over Tatis? Even as a Rays fan I can't see that happening.

SDS

Tatis is a lock for #1 POTM August

SDS

I've got 21/24 Topps cards already hoping the Lightning is either Tatis or Mookie. Really want to see Bauer with a high 90 as well.

SDS

Love me some Soto

How bout Harper and his league leading ops, or max fried and his National league leading win, war, and era. And Kyle Hendricks has gotten lit up in several starts since his fluke opening day shutout.

SDS

Every has to remember that POTM are for guys playing way above what there stats would say so guys like Harper would be out because he has done this before.

Tatis while good is playing at a level we have never see same with Lowe these guys are playing way above what any projected them to be at.

For me its

Tatis
Lowe
Hernandez
Hendricks
Trevor B

SDS

Some guys will get topps now before the POTM is announced so it is hard to say who the other cards will be but I'm very certain the lightning is Tatis

SDS

Mookie??????

Yaz won’t be a POTM guy at all. They wouldn’t make you collect the Yaz Topps now to get a POTM version

SDS

Anthony Santander has been legit for my Os. I think he's ties for league lead in extra base hits plus he's got an 18 game hitting streak. He's only a silver so he's primed for a special one time diamond card.

I can’t see Lowe being higher than Lewis. Lewis’ average is 50 points higher and he’s leading MLB in OBP. He’s also been a stud on defense.
