So does this mean Soto will be on the cover of MLB 21?

SDS

Obviously not going to be have two Tatis 99s and his absence from the August awards is highly suspicious...

SDS

I'm missing the correlation?

SDS

The last two years they have given a 99 overall to the next year's cover guy. There was some speculation that Tatis could be on the cover next year and that Soto would be the 99 for August. Soto was the clear #2 for August and didn't crack the top 8. Therefore I believe this means he could be in line for the 99 pre-order card.

Or a 99 Finest lol

SDS

I’m still on the belief that Jeter or Clemente will be the cover of 21

SDS

It'll be a current player.

Not even Babe made the cover in 18 and the synergy between "new exciting player" and "debut on new console/generation" is going to be too impossible to ignore.

If it weren't for that, I'd wholeheartedly endorse the concept of #21For21.

Who's to say Tatis isn't the first player to get an overall 125 rated card later this year?

Trout should be the cover athlete

Why Jeter?
Besides, hes been on the cover of All-Star Baseball in the past.

Why? Nobody "should" be the cover athlete. And it rarely is gonna be the best player. Or you would just have the same guy every year. Cover athlete is about marketing and making appearances. In an age when, who the heck even sees the cover anymore when most people buy digital? lol

Every time I start the game on my PS4, Baez is right there in the dashboard. So I would say all of us do 🙂

Yeah but the game is already bought at that point. Kinda dont matter if Joseph Stalin was there.

Disclaimer: I was gonna use another name that didnt quite kill as many people as Stalin and wasnt quite as evil, but History views him a lot harsher so I refrained.

This might be an unpopular opinion but Derek Jeter wasn't good enough to get a 99 overall cover card or be a part of a big collection. Clutch is only 1 attribute. Hes not gonna have power. With a career slugging lercentage of .440. He wasn't as great of a fielder as everyone makes him out to be, good not great. Maybe a 99 postseason card but even that how are they gonna juice him enough to reach 99?

I don’t think big Papi was good enough against left handed pitching to be 99 overall either but here we are. I agree with everything you said about Jeters skill level. He is the single most overrated player in any sport of all time IMO. The reason I think of him as a potential cover athlete is pure popularity. He will sell copies of the game. Plain and simple

Definitely agree there, it would be a smart business move. Slap Jeter on the cover and a lot of people will buy it just for him.

SDS

Hey, even though I know the game has nothing to do with the cover boy. How bout this. If Jeter is the F'in cover boy i wont buy another copy.

But if they go that low just to market to such a low percentage of people yeah I am gone.

Madden is free to play all this weekend and already a discount on the top 2 costing versions lol. I downloaded it on Steam, played a franchise game. Same stuff.

#21for21

SDS

Best two players in the league right now imo are Trout and Betts.

Best two young players imo are Tatis Jr and Soto.

Any of these 4 should be on the cover.
