I lost to Riley Reid and the Pornhub squad last night. Reggie took me deep 3 times, Riley didn't do much.

The big 3. I'll get 2 of them from the choice packs, probably will just buy the 3rd off the market. My hitting improved in 19, but was still awful, pitching is what keeps me in games.
Plus, how can I turn down a rotation of Maddux, Glavine and Smoltz? I grew up loving these guys.
I wish the mode had checkpoints or something. Like the 1st Inning is 70 stars, maybe after you beat the first boss you get 10 stars. Not repeatable, but at least you get something. Then you can keep trying. Beat the second boss and 20 stars. Again just a one time reward but you are getting the stars. Then if you win the final showdown, you get the last 40 stars.
Maybe a dumb idea, I don't know, and the number of stars might need to be tweaked. But the all or nothing is a bit frustrating.
I'm spending everything on Joe Pesci's Kickstarter: Joe Pesci Sings Abbey Road.

Yeah, if I were going for Mantle I'd be saving every stub so that makes sense.
I'll never hit legend, if I start playing RS enough again I'll probably be in the 700s-800s, so not that great. I kinda want to get rid of Hal, is there another SP better than Wood?
Now that some time has passed, I wanted to see if he is still dominate for the majority of you. I played my first RS game in about a month early this morning, my opponent had a weak team so I offered them a FQ. Smoltz strikes out the first two and my opponent offers me a FQ. Didn't take it, Smoltz ended up with a CG shutout with 20 Ks.
That got me thinking I'd like to add another power arm to my rotation. Right now I have Smoltz, Orel, Hal, Greinke and King Felix. I'd probably drop Hal if I picked up Wood. Do you guys think Wood is worth picking up?
I was going to ask about this, glad there is a thread. Got lucky and pulled KB out of a HL pack, but not sure if I want to keep him or not. I used him in 1 RS game so it is hard to gauge him yet, but I am so close to having prestige Chipper.
Should I hold onto KB and keep using him, or sell? I really do like his swing, he was my first 3B when I started DD back in 18. Just don't want to see his price drop to 40k overnight and lose stubs.
Hard to say. For a team like the Royals, it'll be hard to top the 99 Brett they released with this set. I'd love to see Ruth for the Yankees but I don't know how that kind of reward translates to teams like the Royals (unless it's a Bo Jackson )
Don't sleep on Bob Hamelin!
I tend to play events and RS mostly, as I finish conquest quickly and same for the player programs. Not a fan of Showdown, I know many like it, which is great, just not for me.
That said, I love conquest, I still keep hoping we get a conquest extreme map, with a couple decent cards as rewards. Make them sellable so the people who don't like the mode could still get them.
Chipper, then Walker. Though in the end I got them all anyway. Not sure if I will get Ortiz and Rivera, maybe just Rivera this Inning.
I've been wondering about this card, seen his price is still fairly high so I figured he must be pretty solid. And if he has the same delivery as the CP version, I might need to get him.
Right now my rotation is Smoltz, Hal, Orel, Greinke and King Felix. I'm coming up on Gold 40 I think, so I suppose I have to take Kluber Doesn't mean I need to use him though. I guess Hal could come out of the rotation, I haven't used him in well over a month.
The Wood card is a decent hitter for a pitcher if I'm not mistaken, which is nice..
After I hit a perfect/perfect with HRD Gonzalez at 117 power on a common pitcher with no confidence and all it did was hit the wall and almost got caught I was about done. I take the lead and the bottom of the third 99 Larkin throws a ball near the dirt and diamond fielding Bellinger bobbles it to allow the game to continue I just quit. I’m not catering to that [censored] you can have the win
I had this happen with Dawson and Chipper, back to back. Both died at the track. It was like the wind was blowing in 30 mph or something.
It is essentially just grinding stats mindlessly, at least for me. Kinda like in 18 when you played the Rockies on rookie. I'm not complaining, these games don't take much focus and you can prestige your players, but I am having 18 flashbacks.
