Awesome post, thanks.

Would love that Dieterich card from last year, since I didn't play 19.

SDS

That Justin Bour card would be insane.

SDS

May is tough, all those cards have comps with FOTF and Verlander’s Live series. My first 4 would be Bour, Wood, Neris and Dietrich. Not much of an opinion on the top guy.

I agree. I feel like so many people loved last year's Dietrich that SDS almost has to put it back in the game. That 120 power against righties sounds amazing

SDS

Hats off to my guy for this post. Thank you for doing something good in this forum!!

SDS

You are a hero sir. Give me that 85 B Crawford card!

Appreciate it! I never realized how little love the Giants have gotten over the years. That Crawford could be a solid SS option

Just karma for winning 3 World Series so close together.

Thanks! Just trying to give everyone the best information to prepare for these programs

SDS

Crawford and Dietrich would be sick to me the focus should be on teams that dont have many diamonds as best they can

He was probably my all time personal favorite POTM card but we won’t be getting him as he is playing in Japan now

Yah I agree your probably right about that.

This card was a beast vs RHP, I saw him on some squads still in September/October until Finest dropped

Also....how trash was MLBTS 18s May roster for POTM? That is straight booty

SDS

I started playing DD with 18. They didn't do POTM before 17?

SDS

This is awesome thanks for posting. Personally I would love to see a diamond Nomar Garciaparra card.

Nope. Monthly Awards were one of the biggest new content additions in 17, but they were not in the game before then

SDS

Man oh man do I want that Yordan Alvarez with the 1B secondary.

SDS

With the June program set to drop today, the player pool seems a little weaker than last month. My guess would be that Goldschmidt is the lightning player, but it could very easily be Blackmon.
