Machado/Soto/DeGrom finest....

SDS

I have enough stubs to buy 1 of these guys. Curious how everyone has done with them, and which 1 would be worth it the most. To give a little background I currently use Prestige Maddux/Finest Darvish/Gibson/Prestige Hernandez/ Prestige Pax/ and some combo of finest Lamet(sneaky good)/finest Gonzales/ and sig Cliff Lee among others as my starting 5.

I'm running Hornsby at 3B.

My OF is MVP Trout, Mantle, and MVP Harper but close to Griffey who will replace Harper.

There are so many good cards in the OF that I didn't know if Soto was worth it. Obviously, if he's head and shoulders above the rest I'll make room for him.

Any thoughts/reviews on these guys would be appreciated. Thanks!

SDS

I should also say I'm nowhere on any of these TAs so completely them to get these cards aren't really an option...

SDS

Cheaper option would be to buy several 89+ diamonds at 8k a piece. Exhange them for one of those cards, use the stubs and packs gained to return your stubs or invest more into an exchange.

I mean, I have Awards Trout and I hit .229 with him. I’m not that good a hitter, but I usually am .250-.280 with premium guys so he’s now a platoon with Soto, who I am hitting .333 with for power. Trout is either a DP or HR for me and Im sure it’s because I suck, but it’s all relative.

Haven’t tried Machado yet, just gotta finish the conquest, but I can tell you that facing him sucks. He just went a triple shy of the cycle against me and he raked in previous games.

Degrom has been good for me, great location, but gives up a few runs each start like everyone else, but I’d say he’s top 5 for me.

SDS

Soto if you want some offensive help. DeGrom if you want to blow fools away online.

So I literally just unlocked FOTF Soto for the Nationals. I don't have stage 2 or stage 3 done. Still think its a cheaper option to do exchanges??

So then back to my original question which 1 of the 3??

If you could only pick 1 out of the 3 as the best who would it be and why?

Tough choice. Who are your other options? If you have Mantle+Trout you can go after Arozarena instead of Soto.

Really I'd push for Machado among the 3, but its all dependant on who you have.

My OF currently is Mantle, Trout, MVP Harper. Close to Griffey as well to replace Harper.

SDS

Yeah man go for Machado. You don't really need Juan.

I also have Mantle, Harper, Trout and soon to be Griffey. With Mookie and Stanton or Arozarena as backups. I just cant justify buying/ grinding for Soto. DeGrom is a stud but alot of pitchers are good. I would think you should upgrade Hornsby with Machado. Machado would be a better bat and much better glove. Earlier in the year I was just not good with Machados swing.

SDS

The swing hasn’t changed. If you couldn’t hit with him before, I’d recommend you go after someone that would help you at 3b.

SDS

So update: I bought Machado. Had enough stubs and cards to exchange the Braves stage 4 and get Freeman. Sold Freeman, flipped some cards, sold off some inventory, and just had enough to get DeGrom, too! If either of them don't work out, I'll sell them and maybe try Soto. So I lied, I ended up with 2/3 can't wait to try them out!!!
