Cal Ripken

SDS

How great would it be if on Sunday for the 25 anniversary of the consecutive game streak being broken a 99 signature Series card was released. Come on SDS... Make it happen

SDS

I assume you've never had the pleasure of playing with his card

SDS

Cal’s swing is depressing.

SDS

I'm perfectly fine with the Ripken we already have, I can't normally hit with him because of his swing but the HRD version seems to hit everything for a homerun or in a gap.

SDS

Im hitting 333 AVG and 783 SLG in 60 AB with Ripken, and play a really good defense.

My hitting in RS 240 AVG, so and not a good hitter..

SDS

I’m hitting 423 with cal in 150 abs or so. His swing is much better this year.

SDS

I too, hope we get a 99 ovr card for Cal showing up to work without calling in sick

SDS

I hope we get a playable game for next gen. This shot this year is terrible.

SDS

Love Cal. I think it was last year.....i used his early inning boss card for months. If we get a SS Ripken id love to use it, but it will depend on its price.....i mean, if we cant just choose it because its an inning boss.

SDS

I also did great w Ripken’s card last year... but haven’t had the chance to try his HRD card - I’m sure it’s great!

SDS

Has anyone payed enough attention, do they change his swing according to his card. He had multiple stances, swings and approaches over the years. I hit really well with his HRD card and if I remember correctly that year he had a more compact swing. Didn't do the stupid slide on his shoulder. Or twitching of his elbow.

SDS

Cal Ripken has never been good online in any version of the show. Dude just stinks

SDS

His swing is trash every year, you can give him a 125 OVR card and it would be the same thing over and over.

exactly bud, i absolutely love the HRD Ripken card - online he just rakes for me over 20 games so far online at least and he's batting over 500

SDS

Cal last year was terrible, this year his swing is good enough that he plays up to his attributes! I'm doing well with him hitting 350 I think

SDS

yea i wanted to love his HRD but just didnt work out

SDS

I think the HRD card's swing in unduly maligned. It seems quick enough. Are people put off by closed stances?

SDS

Ripken had so many different stances and hand positioning throughout his career. Am I wrong that they only have 1 for all his different cards?
