.... It sounds like he played some smart baseball, but reading this you can tell you're biased towards yourself. Which is reasonable, we all are biased towards ourselves.
just read this "I work him to a 3-2 count", more like he worked it to a 3-2 count, I don't think you wanted it to be 3-2 count, so it wouldn't be you "worked the count", it would be him.
It's smart baseball to go 2nd to home on a bunt? Now if the throw was wide or something that's different
He was stealing, so it wasn't like he bunted while standing on 2nd, the runner was already in motion nearing third. Because he was stealing, the third baseman is going to cover third for the throw, meaning the bunt won't get fielded as fast. Same thing would happen in real life, the third baseman would cover 3rd not expecting a bunt.
Same thing would happen as in the first baseman would catch ball do some slow dance moves, tie his shoes and check his cup before realizing the runner sidnt stop at 3rd?....HD time to get him 1st in slo mo.
Anyway yes I dont usually complain on here seen this stuff for the last decade this one just ticked me off
What are y’alls thoughts on this card? Currently have Granderson in center but could easily finish Twins affinity
Prospect Taveras is great, Drew waters gets absolutely no love on here but he's one of my best hitters, especially in the clutch.
Taveras one of my favorite players to use
I'm at bronze 96, getting close. Here is the situation. Lindor is my SS, J-Ram is at 3B. If I take Larkin I could move Lindor to 3B and use J-Ram off the bench.
My catcher is the Evo Pudge, not great at the plate but he has a great glove. I did hit very well last year with the SS Posey, so he is tempting.
I'm leaning Larkin, as I am close to the FOTF Santana, that card looks insane. He will be awful behind the plate but his hitting attributes should make up for it.
So does Larkin make the most sense? Sorry for asking, but am curious how the two play after all the updates.
I took Posey and have hit well with him definitely a great card especially he mashes lefties and secondary position is 1B.
I have played with the Larkin card in Battle Royale several times and love it. plays as well or better than his SS card from last year which was nice.
That being said I had Reggie in Showdown and OMG he mashes. I was planning on taking Larkin next fo round I'm 65 silver but as of right now I will take Reggie...
With my Rangers MTO, I was lucky enough to get Yelich without even requesting him.
I'll tell ya one thing, I'm never trading for a SP (or calling one up). The locked on SP games starting at inning 1 just bore to me tears.
I’m so glad you mentioned this about trading for SP because that is something I never thought about lol
How do you call someone up in MTO? Am I missing something? Only when they offer it right?
When I used the Astros I tried something. Korey Lee was in AAA and a 77 A potential with solid attributes. so on players to shop i put Maldanado, Garrett Stubbs, and one if their A Potential guys that wasn't close to Majors. also the 3rd catcher that starts on the roster. I did not put C as positional need i targeted who I wanted Yelich, Kruger, Taylor Roger, and another SP.
ended up trading 2 of the three catchers that were on the 40 man roster that I shopped. And BOOM Korey Lee called up and ended up 87 overall A potential and I got Yelich, Roger's, and Kluber
Has anybody got the Maddox, Glavine, Smoltz nameplate? If so could you share how to get it. I already have the three cards in DD but I can’t find anything on how to get the nameplate or anything besides it’s in the game!!!
Might mean there is gonna be something with all three of them in the future? Moments or Program maybe just guessing.
I'm currently in season with the White Sox and the Twins.
I have done this for the White Sox I need SP Keuchal is awful and others men only Giolito solid. Go Gonzalez yuk
Pen is pretty stout. Already traded for Hader.
But I listed the 2B Garcia to shop and Dylan Cesse A SP prospect only 63 overall.
wanting Madrigal and Kopechto be called up.
0-0 game bottom of 3rd opponent gets 2 ground ball single that were solid hits. Lindor on 1st and gwynn on 2nd Posey comes up to bat and I work work him to 3-2 count he takes off double steal and lays down a drag bunt toward 3rd and never stops after I had thrown ball to first..Posey beats throw somehow to 1st and he scores with gwynn and Lindor to third.
0-0 great game til that point...
