99 Walker vs 99 Harper

SDS

So I see a lot of people in the community love Larry Walker, but i’m just curious if there’s anyone out there that prefer harper over him? I’m hitting .355 w Harper and love him so didn’t want to switch to Larry Walker, but is that the move? Is he that much a better hitter than him?

SDS

Griffey is the move. You just can’t make it yet.

For now, I prefer Walker’s defense.

SDS

I chose Ortiz over Walker and Rivera with my boss pick but I kind of regret it now and Walker is too expensive to buy now. Started off cold with Walker on BR but recently I’ve been smashing the ball. David Ortiz isn’t even my starting 1B anymore. Walker would’ve still been in my OF somewhere

SDS

Ya. I have a a feeling Willie Mays or Griffey is right around the corner and that will probably drop walkers price quite a bit

SDS

Walkers defense is much better than Harper making it a no brainer

SDS

I sold Walker instead of Harper to complete the MVP Trout collections over a month ago. I still regret it to this day...

SDS

I’m more concerned about hitting. Is walker a much better hitter?

SDS

Harper is great but Larry is def on a higher tier. Larry all the way though starting Harper won't make your team bad at all.

SDS

Harper has been one of my best offensive performers. His arm is great, and the silver shield hasn’t caused any hiccups.

I struggled with Walker. I’m thinking about giving him another chance, but it’s hard to find room.

SDS

Walker is better offensively and hands down better defensively. He’ll Harper isn’t even a good left handed bench bat ,because there are so many cards that are better then him

Just hitting, they are about the same. It is a huge upgrade defensively with Walker. Even though they have similar speed and both have good arms, Walker seems like he gets better animations, better jumps, and the arm is amazing

SDS

These questions are tough because it all depends on the player. I hit .350 with Harper and prestiged him quickly. I am hitting .215 with Walker. I hit .145 with Mantle in 300 at bats, but hit .360 with Lou Brock. Use every hitter and play who you are better with.

SDS

Just do a stat comparison against them...believe Harper only advantage is power v righties. Walter has edge in literally every other category. I think people played with walker so long before Harper and succeeded, not really worth it to play Harper.

I have both and I’m a fairy diehard Nats fan.......I play walker.

SDS

Also, as someone said, Griffey is still to come and that’ll be the move for me. As long as he’s not a BR reward and 1mm stubs, reasonably obtainable, he’ll be the move at the end of the day.

SDS

ok thanks guys for the info. i appreciate it!
