SDS Loves tatis

SDS

Tatis is a great player and exciting for baseball but this monthly card could be the best shortstop in the history of DD. Wagner last year had positional flexibility and a bit of speed over him but these power numbers are insane. The cards attributes are basically the trout collection card. Not complaining or saying it’s not right but just funny how much they love the hometown guy.

SDS

2016's A-Rod sh*ts all over this card.

SDS

Yeah this is making me wonder if I keep my CAP at SS or not

I mean it's more than just San Diego fans that have gone gaga for Tatis Jr, not really a hometown thing, people are seriously saying he's a top 5 player in baseball right now. (Which he might be, but personally I wouldn't go that far yet.)

Dude is legitimate though. Would be interested in seeing a full season out of him.

Well Trout obviously, Juan Soto, Mookie Betts. Maybe a controversial pick but I'd have Freddie Freeman in there. And then probably Judge, though that's obv when healthy.

So if Judge didn't qualify, I guess I'd have either Tatis Jr or Story, so I guess Tatis is right there even in my rankings.🤔

  • Edit, I forgot about Acuna, so prob swap either Judge or Freeman for that-

He will be wearing a Dodgers uniform by then.

More like knocking dodgers out of the postseason.

Hey I’m not here to debate or argue Because its highly subjective to some degree but Freeman really pokes my curiosity. No doubt he’s a great ball player but he doesn’t play a prime position nor does he have much speed. The other (including Tatis) are all legit 5 tool players (minus Judge)

I just really like guys who get on base consistently throughout their career, and Freeman has been a model of consistency with his bat.

I know he's not playing at the most athletic position and that he doesn't have speed, which is why I said it's probably controversial, I doubt the majority of people would put him in the top 5, but I feel like he may get dinged a bit to much because of where he plays.

A betting man might say, in the 14 years since the Padres last sniffed the post season, the Dodgers have done it 9 times and the Padres have never knocked the Dodgers out of the postseason.

Big market teams never suffer the smaller guys for very long, but maybe the Padres will be this year's 2015 Royals.

Freddie is underrated in the baseball world. If he didn’t get hurt or had elbow issues in the last 10 Yrs, he would be top notch with a gold glove. Kinda like Votto in his prime.

I live in San Diego and watch every Padres game. He 100% deserves those attributes in a juiced monthly awards card. He should also be equipped with a quirk that makes dusty live veterans cards turn into prime versions and bronze live rookies into future star versions when he is in the lineup

The Padres are def going for it this year. I don’t see them staying “in the game” for very long. Not like the Dodgers anyway.

Dodgers have been knocked out 9 times lol.

Why not?

They have Tatis for 4 more years,
Machado at least 4, Hos (5), Myers (2), Crone (5), Nola (4), Grisham (5), Pham (1) and Moreland (1) locked up for awhile.

The rotation has Clev (2) Lamet (3) Davies (2) Paddack (4) plus Patino and Gore.

The bullpen with Pagan and Pomeranz and a notoriety for building bullpens.

Still have the second best farm with Campusano, Abrams leading the way among others.

I’m not gonna say this team will ever reach dodger level of consistency, that would be silly.

But this core is set for awhile with reinforcements and flexibility to trade on the way for years to come.
