Im thinking about buying Nolan Ryan

SDS

What say you? YAY or NAH

Side note..... who the hell is Larry Doby and why is his card so [censored] cheap.

SDS

Ryan doesn't have any side to side movement and it hurts him severely, I bought him when he came out, started him a couple of games and immediately sold him afterwords.

Doby is cheap bc he was a pennant race reward, he is a hall of famer and had a great career. (He was the second player to break the color barrier after Jackie Robinson and was the first black player to play in the AL)

SDS

if he is anything like his other diamond card then ill pass unless i get him out of another beach ball pack.

Thanks man. I was looking for a righty that can touch 100 MPH. Most of my starters are control guys not much speed.

I just googled him. Thats awesome he has a card im buying it just for fun

SDS

I didnt like the Ryan card, way too hard to control, the 96 Syndergaard hits 99-100 and is much cheaper and better imo

Buy Syndergaard and use the rest you'll save by not buying Ryan to nab Royce Lewis, I put him at 2nd and love this card! Kid rakes

SDS

I have had a lot of success with Ryan. With so many people not able to catch up to a fastball, he plays great.

But when you run into someone who can, get him out of there quick!

SDS

I say get him. People say that he has no side to side movement, but I struggle against him bc his sinker and fb are so fast that I have to guess where the pitch is coming. If it is anywhere else, I can't hit it. Plus his control is bad, so you have to be patient, but it's hard to distinguish ball or strike when it's coming that fast

Dude thanks i was just looking through the SPs and Syndergaard stood out. Im also going to take you up on Lewis. I have been using Sandberg since my first level up and new a fresh face to rotate

They make pills for that now. With your senior discount should be pretty cheap

No to Ryan. Control is very suspect.

Doby was a stud card a couple of years ago. I do believe he was the first Black player in the AL.

Yep, first African-American player in the AL and first African-American player to win the WS (along with teammate Satchel Paige)

Watch Baseball by Ken Burns. Learn something. Prideful ignorance is the dangerous.

I love Ken Burns. My dad is a Vietnam Vet and loves his documentaries. Im not concerned about "prideful ignorance". Get in line if you can name every single player that played for your team in any sport. If not then just move along

No one is saying you have to know every player who ever played for your team. They are however saying that you probably should know a HOFer from your team especially one who played such a pivotal role in breaking the color barrier

Well never heard of the man ever. Like ever. Thank you SDS for educating me

SDS

Not that it's a big deal but I would kind of agree with others. If you're a Sox fan I would think you would know who Larry Doby is. Not talking about a utility infielder from the 1979 team but this is a hall of famer who played a pivotal role in the history of the game.

Back to the topic of the thread, I haven't used the new Ryan card but I actually had a lot of success with his other diamond that was one of the rewards with the LS collection. I know a lot of people struggle with his cards but that card at least played pretty well for me. If you're looking for someone who can throw some gas, Kerry Wood is a great option as well. I use him and he has the ability to completely dominate some people. He can get a little wild at times but he can also be effectively wild.
