Chipper a disappointment?

SDS

So Chip is my favorite player......ever! I was very excited for the chipper card that I could actually acquire this year. I was able to to pick him up yesterday......and I am actually disappointed. He is a defensive liability, and struggles at the plate for me.
I really hate to admit I would rather have Nolan Jones starting at 3b.....

SDS

I plan on using him for stubs so I can complete the LS series eventually. Although when I used him as a rental a few days ago he hit well for me but I have Nolan Gorman at 3rd so I'm good.

Chipper has always been a defensive liability the last few years. Just like any hitter you have to give them a 150-200 at bats online to really judge a player. I’ve really struggled in the past for the first 100 at bats then bat at or over .400 with that player.

Chipper was an expensive disappointment last year, tbh, so a card with lower attributes probably won’t be any better for me. I’ll still take him @ 300 stars because he’s free and the other two bosses don’t interest me. But best case scenario, he’s just a stopgap until I get a reunion with my 2019 3rd base duo of Brett and Donaldson.

I’ll put him at 3B and Gorman at 1B. Always nice having another switch hitter in the lineup. Shef can move back to RF I guess

I like this setup

SDS

I used both his gold and diamond cards in the showdown. Small sample size I know but I couldn’t hit anything with him. Second time around I picked Roberts and raked.

SDS

Well his hitting attributes are only in the 80's. Unless of course he faces a lefty which isnt gonna happen often. Especially since guys know he rips them. So yeah, a lot of people arent gonna have as much success with him. He could definitely be a good vs Lefty bench bat.

SDS

So, when i sold chipper i decided to pick up GG Heyward. My first 2 games were tough......Newhouser.......and Newhouser lol. Went Offer. 3rd game faced a righty, and viola!!! 2 for 2 with 2 dingers!

SDS

I took chipper. I had great luck with him last year and so far doing great this year

SDS

Finally got 300 stars earlier tonight played 2 RS triple of wall fires game and 2 moon shots in game 2.

I really like him. He hit's everything hard. Not many home runs yet but everything has been extra bases at least. I just need to get his swing down. He's solved my revolving door at 3rd base for now though.

Cool-thanks for replying...I look forward to trying him out...have been using 92 Matthews some at 3rd...his defense and speed were frustrating so also tried FOF Correa and 85 Mondesi there as well so I feel your pain on the revolving door approach at 3b LOL!

I like the 85 Mondesi. He has a glitchy swing and makes for a nice bench bat. I just prefer Gorman/Ramirez and FOTF Torres over him. Best of luck.
