Productive night on the game last night

SDS

Won 4 event games, which pushed me to 300 stars, so I got an extra Griffey. Sold him, and with the proceeds I am able to finish the LS collection, just waiting on the orders. Also got Prestige Maddux last night, so I was happy.

Is Mantle still a viable option in the OF, or is he a bench bat now?

Mantle has been my CF since I finished the collection in April. Hasn’t moved. This is my first year diving into DD so I wasn’t that great to start hitting wise, but Mantle still hit .350 for me early. Now he’s the centerpiece to my WS squads every season. Best player in the game IMO.

Who else you you have in the outfield?

Thanks for the help, will start him in CF tonight. Never thought I'd actually finish the collection, might have to try Sheffield as well.

Don't feel bad, I think I went 4-6 last night, I needed just 1 RBI with Morgan but ended up getting the wins first.

MVP Griffey, MVP Trout, Finest Soto are starting right now.

Me personally; I would play Mantle over Soto. His defense is 'meh'.

You can have Soto as bench bat.

I haven't hit well with Griffey, so I've been running Mantle in right, Trout in center and Soto in left. Trouts speed helps cover Soto's deficiencies in left. Soto is so much quicker through the hitting zone. Griffey's swing seems slower and longer.

I haven't played a ton with them yet, but I'm struggling with Soto and Griffey. With Soto I'm hitting the ball hard, just not getting it to fall. Griffey's swing does take a bit to get used to.

I might sit Griffey for a couple games, see what I can do with Soto. I guess it is a nice problem to have too many options.

It seems like everyone I face in this event has either a WS banner or several hundreds of games played. I look at my .500 record with 60 games played and wonder if I should even try lol

Like most players in the game I’m very average. I have been playing guys with what appear to be great accolades. But it’s only three innings on AS. So it’s worth the try. So far I’m 4-2 and I’m just playing to get prestige stats. It is nice win too

Same, I'm 95-69 so not that great. Played someone with a WS banner and they dashboarded as Freeman hit a two run bomb.

Not much, but it made me feel good for a second.

I don’t think Mantle is a bench bat. He been my most consistent hitter all year he hits from both sides of the dish and his glove and speed are top notch. I bat him lead off and he still out produces Trout, Soto and Griffey for me.

SDS

Mantle still my best player. And I have practically everyone.
