Cheap SP help

SDS

I am looking at SP that I can afford. This is probably just for a start or two. Unless I am SUPER good with them.
Options that I am interested in:
97 Greinke
97 Forrest Whitley
96 Ian Anderson
96 Mitch Keller
I am most interested in using the last three, but not sure yet.
Thoughts?

SDS

99 Alex mills, lucas giolito both are under 10,000.

SDS

If you’re dead set on the last three, Whitley is your guy and it’s not even close

SDS

You also get bob Gibson for free, just do his tribute conquest.

Ok, I wasn't sure how he was. Thanks! I will probably get him then.

I will get him eventually, but want to take a break after grinding for a month straight, no RS. 🙂

Oooooh. I have heard good things about Orlando Hernandez and have wanted to try Luis Patino. Is Patino better than Whitley? I just bought Whitley, but can get Patino also.

Wasn't done yet lol. Posted too soon

SDS

Gibson is free.
Whitely is good
Max fried is a free lefty through the 2020 post season moments.
Grienke is decent for a cheap starter.
Alec Mills isn't bad either and he's got 125 hits per nine so batters will have a small pci against him.

Note I would not do Ian Anderson or Keller.

SDS

The others at 20k or under that i forgot

Mike Scott
Jim Palmer
Bert Blyleven
Bret Saberhagen
Vida Blue
Cole Hamels
Spencer Howard

Thank you good sir. MAN, this is hard. 🙂
I am not sure if I should use Whitley, or sold him. 🙂
I pulled Cole Hamels, but sold him for 60K. I might get him, as he was pretty good for me. I haven't gotten Spencer Howard, but might try him out.
Out of these 4, what is your ranking?
Spencer Howard, Patino, Hamels, Whitley
I know that I am saving up for 99 Maddux, 98 Orel, and 99 Scherzer.

While these are under 20k, only Vida Blue and Cole Hamels are competitive in online play to some extent.

And just maybe, you can throw Spencer Howard in there, but Blue and Hamels are definitely better.

SDS

greinke goated for me

SDS

Whitley would be my move

Fair enough but i enjoy having Palmer and Blyeven against the CPU for conquest.

SDS

Bert Blyleven is good. Throw his hard curve everywhere. Sprinkle in the 4 seam, the slow curve, and a few change ups and you're gold. Hes the pitcher I get the fewest strikeouts with, but he also gets the most complete games for me.
