8th inning Boss Selection

SDS

I was going through my unopened packs (I like to let them pile up)
and I realized I have not opened my 8th inning boss pack.

Talk about being absent minded!!!
Originally, I thought Pudge was the pick because of his defense and I have Walker in Right.
But that was then and now we have Jimmy Foxx.
With all of the great cards that have recently dropped, who is the pick now?
Cobb?
Or should I just sell the card and not sweat it (I have more than enough stubs, so I am not stub hungry)?

I have all 3.. love Cobb the most myself

SDS

Whoever you pick, Pudge is most definitely not the pick lol.

Cobb looks lethal.
But what to do with Walker then? (MVP Trout and Mantle in CF & LF)

DD Problems 😜

Yeah he's bad. But if you raked with him last year, then by all means pick him. To me he's just as bad as last year but with better attributes, so in that case he will be just as good to you but with better attributes.

Foxx = Perfect hits...and passed balls. I-Rod is still my catcher and I have Foxx at his primary position, first base.

Cobb can start in left or is an outstanding off the bench option to hit, run, or even add some speed in the OF if you need it. Pudge's D is probably worth it alone, but I agree, his lack of pop is suspect. Most of my pudge hits are/were oppo gappers to right. He seems to have just enough power to line out directly to the outfielders but not quite enough to consistently hit bullets by them. I also hit way more home runs with Posey vs. righties and Torre. It's kind of weird. I feel like he should be better, on paper he looks gross.

SDS

IMO, Cobb is the best in the pack. He has the Bomber quirk so he still hits a lot of home runs. His speed and bunting are INSANE! If he's on 1st base, he'll easily steal 2nd and 3rd.

I bought the other two and Pudge is still my starting catcher, he hits well for me and his defense is unbelievable. No one under 90 can steal off of him, (at least in my experience.) Honestly, you're not making a mistake with either pick, they're both amazing. Just depends on what your team needs most.

SDS

I agree that Cobb is the play here

Sell sell sell
