May POTM flashbacks

SDS

Who are the likely suspects, anyone have a list of past May POTM cards? Who will the end reward be?

SDS

86 B Crawford just announced!!! I'll take it. Loved that card!

Not me. Hes slow and hit mostly singles when I had to do his missions. I do like how different cards play better/worse for different people.

SDS

The final one is going to be the 95Josh Bell from 19... before that the 94 Correa from 17...id also say the 94 Wood from 17 as well

SDS

That josh bell makes Eddie Murray worthless tho, I just grinded for him to be my switch hitter bench bat and dropped Giambi. That bell card is almost too good to drop atm but I’d love it

SDS

86 Crawford is virtually useless on most teams with plenty of better SS

So you use any of the April POTM cards that were released beside maybe Didi? Probably not. POTM cards have been and always will be what you call “useless” with few exceptions. POTM cards are for fun. They are free cards, who cares if they are useless or not. Expect to be disappointed with the final reward, because Correa or Bell would barely be better than their FOTF versions and Verlander is easy to hit in this game

I would prefer different players who may have a chance. I think not a lot of thinking goes into these choices sometimes

Considering there is only 8 or so cards to choose from they really don’t have a choice in these. Its not like they are pulling these cards out of their [censored] here

SDS

I'm hoping we get Neris again. I loved that man. He made Dodgers players very upset

What do you mean buy this? Who would you like to have seen, you can make a statement like this without some kind of example.

In the end this is a place holder program for POTM something SDS didn't need to do and could have said POTM will be paused until the season returns.

The award goes back to 1958. I can think of plenty hitters and pitchers you can choose from. For example Daniel Murphy 2016 can play many positions.

Ok I understand the award has been around for 50+ years.
So my next question is do you understand how POTM works in MLB The Show?

Maybe they can give him his slider back too

SDS

I just want 85 derek Detrich, so I can smack homers off of righties.

SDS

2 of the 4 announced. Not to exciting yet. Brandon Crawford and hector neris.

SDS

I like the Hector Neris card last year and will help bring my all Philles team in conquest

Assuming they’re revealing them in order of lowest overall to highest overall, it doesn’t look like we’re getting Dietrich in this program.

Unless they boost him to an 88 or something.

No Dietrich pretty much means we are guaranteed Alex wood though, so that is a plus
