Is there a reason they haven’t posted the stats for the 7 players?

Yeah they haven’t shown them yet, I was hoping they’d show them in the last stream like last year they showed all 30 of them in the streams leading up to the game. I most interested in seeing mantle and Rivera’s stats because they’re the only 2 I’m really thinking about taking over one of the big 3.

Some things have to be a surprise lol. Fun finding out for ourselves when the game releases, although we may see them in the stream on Thursday when everyone drafts their teams.

I think Mantle is a must because you have to imagine he will have 90+ speed with great batting splits and above average fielding. I saw a video by GomesdaLegend on YT going deep into the stat predictions using the algorithm the developers use to determine stats.

No way mantle’s attributes are that good. He will have the speed but hit .267/.349/.443/.792 with 13 HRs and a strikeout rate of 21% his rookie season. He will have speed and decent defense but I’d be surprised if they gave him over 75 contact and 45-50 power. I guarantee all of the Face of the Franchise outfielders will be better cards than the mantle rookie

My biggest question is how Maddux’s 92-93 mph fastballs will hold up, and Glavine’s for that matter. I don’t know if I’ll go sentimental or logical yet.

romo throws 91 and people have a lot of success with him. movement and speed differentials they'll do ok

Agreed. The pre-order version will be more in line with his 1951 Rookie year. People will grab the card anyway because Mantle (I know I'm picking him) but this will not be the end game bat people are expecting based upon his career stats. He'll be a bench bat in about 2-3 weeks.
