9th inning pick

SDS

I could use a new 3rd baseman. Was thinking I would pick Foxx, but just finished the showdown with Honus after failing it with Foxx. Honus hit 4 bombs and I think I only got out with him twice in all of the missions. With Foxx, I hit a HR with him in the first mission, then went 0 for the rest of the showdown with him. Is it a bad idea to make the pick based on how you did with a card in a showdown. Small sample size I know. I already have two speed guys that I like in Biggio and Cobb, so I'd rather go power for third base, but someone mentioned in another thread that Foxx was a push hitter and I don't think I want to force myself to be a little late everytime Foxx comes up to get good exit velocity... I don't know what I'm going to do with this pick

SDS

The answer is BOTH. Pick 1 and Buy 1

SDS

Jansen is the only one that I care about.

SDS

Fox is a bench bat, change my mind. Honus is probably the ultimate utility guy, speed, contact, some power, can play anywhere in the infield. Jansen looks good but there are a lot of solid closers. I'll pick up all 3, but if stubs are tight you could probably sell and pass.

SDS

I bought foxx picked up honus and I’m kinda wary about jansen. Foxx is a machine, started slow but I’m batting 300 plus with him and he hits bombs. Honus just doesn’t feel like he fits the meat but I’ve only have 25 at bats. Jansen I just think is going to be bp.

SDS

I liked Honus over Foxx in the Showdown. All depends on what you think your team is missing. Mine needs a shortstop, so when I get my 300 stars next week, I will probably lean towards Honus.

SDS

I have a question for those who play regularly above all star. Does high contact make a big difference in hitting? On AS it's not that big a deal, for example I have been using J-Roll mostly and he's fine, but would his PCI be way smaller and play much harder than say Wagners on HOF?

SDS

Foxx is the truth.

In the showdown, I liked Honus too. I'm leaning that way.

SDS

Or I may sell and finally get Ted Williams

I barely use my bullpen, I will not choose him. If I get to 300 stars, I will probably sell the most expensive card. 🙂

SDS

So I was just going to pick a boss and sell cause I didn’t see a need. I chose Honus and put him in for a few games at 2nd base and first game I was a homer away from a cycle. Second game 2 doubles and a single. So now he’s prob my new 2nd baseman

SDS

I don't have a need, but I'm gonna pick Honus or Foxx and buy the other one. Kenley doesn't impress me that much.

SDS

I picked Foxx and bought the other two.

I’m loving Foxx and using him at catcher, batting him 4th between MVP Trout and Mike Honcho.

I already sold back Honus for a bit of a loss because I had a slow
Start with him and I have plenty of other options.

I’m trying to grind Kenley in the Event for prestige stats, but so far I’m
Not a huge fan. Harder to tell on AS in a 3 inning event, but I’ve been better with my other pitchers. I keep 4 RH relievers and so far I’ve been better with Prestige Mo, Dibble and I just got Gossage who seems legit too. So if I keep Kenley he’d be my 4th RH option, so for 300 K it’s prob not worth it. Especially when they released some decent relievers in those newer cards(like RIB and Postseason).

SDS

anyone know what happened to cause prices to randomly skyrocket on these bosses

When? A day or two ago they were up in the 320-360ish range that I saw. They’re actually down a bit since more people are probably getting to 300 Stars.

I picked Honus too. Hes been good, couple HRs and SBs. Also, I've been playing him at third and the defense has been so smooth. I didn't think speed would matter at 3rd base, but it helps on chasing down foul balls and getting to slow choppers quicker

SDS

Foxx because I didnt have enough stubs for him last year.
