Cobb vs. Walker

SDS

I currently have Walker in RF, MVP Trout in CF and Mantle in LF. Walker being a tad slow to get to hot shots has me thinking about replacing him with Cobb.

Thoughts from those that maybe have already done that themselves?

Cobb > Walker - that elite speed and D is so clutch on defense and he plays way above what his already epic attributes suggest on offense. My outfield is

Cobb LF - red mantle center - red trout right

Unless you hit a homerun anything hit to outfield I am catching lol

You can also shade CF to the right field side. In that way, you can shade your RF to cover the hot shots. Trout is fast enough to get to anything in Lf and Lf/Cf. Mantle can get anything Cf/RF.

In that set up , you can put Babe in RF and still have complete coverage in the outfield. No need for 3 speedsters in the outfield

Cobb is 100% the move. I’ve done great with Larry but Cobb is Cobb! He’s a hitting machine with 99 speed and 90 pop on both sides!

I can't justify taking Walker out of lineup by far my best bat this year.

We are on the same boat.

So I made this same post a few days ago, and the overall consensus was Cobb and I agree. However, at the time I had Babe in LF and Thomas at 1B. I have sense sold Thomas to buy Walker and move Babe to 1B. My current OF is Harper/Cobb/Walker. Cobb runs down EVERYTHING in CF for me. He is also my leadoff hitter, and anything in the gap is basically a 3B with some going over the fence! I love that Walker card, too. Obviously I don't have MVP Trout or Mantle so that might change things, but with your OF I might give the slight edge to Cobb. It'd be hard to take Walker out of the lineup, though.....Hope this helps!

SDS

I can’t hit with Walker at all... so I went with Cobb in LF, Mantle in CF, and MVP Trout in RF. Cobb has been a hitting machine at the leadoff spot, but others swear by Walker so it’s all a matter of what you do best with

SDS

I'm still hitting in the .400's with Walker so I don't think Cobb would be anything more than a bench bat/runner for me.

SDS

People are sleeping on Duke Snyder, my outfield is Snyder, Cobb, Harper. Snyder for the price is great left handed bat, and decent fielding and speed, and about $100k less than Walker. Obviously not the same player but for the price I highly recommend Snyder

SDS

My best hitters overall this year have been Duke's All-Star card (my first prestiged) Ellsbury (end prestiged card)and Walker (3 hits and 10-12 runs from prestige)..all three hitting better than Mantle and Trout for me but I havent used Duke or Ellsbury much since I got Mantle and Trout in the last month....

I did end up picking Cobb though because I didn't get him last year. Probably gonna buy Kershaw just not sure when his price will move down or if it will

SDS

Cobb and Walker are a toss up IMO. Walker will hit more home runs, Cobb is faster and a better fielder. But Cobb can hit and Walker can field. So I don't think you can go wrong either way. I have one on my bench and the other starts.

SDS

The thing that puts it over the top for me is the speed. I can have a bad ab, dribble a grounder and beat it out, next thing you know Cobbs on 3rd.

SDS

Nobody runs on Walker. He's a beast
