Where are the last batch of Future Stars?

SDS

Still waiting on guys like Franco, Rutchsman, Kelenic, Gore, and Witt Jr.

SDS

That’s who you’re waiting on? Yuck

Ha. I know a lot of people don’t like the future stars but I like using them. And those guys are all top 10 prospects so I assume they will get one since some much lower ranked prospects already have them.

Since the minor league games were cancelled this year, they're going to select from the Little League World Series.

Just because someone got a prospect card doesn't automatically mean they're gonna get a FS card.

Be happy they got cards AT ALL. Prior to 2020, they wouldn't have.

Um I think if anybody deserves a future stars card its wander Franco or Adley Rutschman

This is kind of my point. Pretty much all of the high end prospect cards also got Future Stars cards except the ones I mentioned. And they also gave future stars cards to some much lower rated prospects.

I mean sure they could decide to give lesser prospects future stars cards and ignore literally half of the top 10 prospects in MLB in the process, but we can all agree that would be a pretty stupid and arbitrary decision right?

You hate FS cards or something?

Dunno bout him, but I do.

These 94+ Overall cards that are on par with, and in many cases, surpassing legends of the game, is ridiculous.

They may show glimpses of greatness, but to make these cards endgame is too much, for me anyways.

I would cap them at 89 tops.

I understand your perspective.

I personally enjoy the cards, the cart art is nice and maybe it'll make people research and learn more about the prospects coming up the pipeline.

Also the ratings thing, the FS cards are not a focal point in the market at all, you have all of these TN cards with inflated/insane stats that absolutely surpass legends. We're talking replacement level journeymen getting 100+ power stats, so can't be too mad about a prospect with a super high ceiling and bright future getting their own inflated stats. Just my opinion.

I get what you are saying, but are Future stars really endgame? Pearson and Mize are practically the only ones I would consider endgame and Pearson is easy to hit if you time the fastball and Mize is almost a million stubs. Future stars are completely irrelevant at this point.

I don't understand why people hate future stars so much. They are fun cards to play with in a video game. And NO ONE is making you use them. Don't act like its torture to play a video game.

SDS

most likely be inning bosses or late year henchmen

I agree with this. I like the new players instead of the same ones every year. And I agree that the topps now cards are way more skewed than these. There are guys that have pure trash LS cards with mid to high 90s topps now cards literally because of one day in the season.

Lux would definitely qualify but I personally think of him as being around too long for one. Just like Kyle Lewis I personally see guys playing in their second season in the majors (even though still technically rookies) as having moved beyond the whole future stars thing. Other may disagree but I think of it as being for prospects.

Looks at Gavin Lux's prospect card, scratches head...

100% agree. I always thought that was a bit of a head scratcher. Only thing I could think of was it came out before the season started so maybe it was more reasonable at that time.
