SDS

MLB The Show Twitter just posted a video confirming Sig Series Torre as one 9f the 4th Inn Bosses.

98 huh? Didn’t think he’d be that high

Yeah I didn’t expect that either. Makes me wonder if we are missing something with the other two guesses. There is no way in their right mind that Ellsbury would be a 97-98 overall

2011 Ellsbury probably deserves a 97 overall. Dude was unreal. 8.3 WAR, .321/.376/.552, hit 46 doubles, 32 homers and drove in 100+. I think a 97 is doable for that year he put up.

SDS

Another Brave and an inflated 98. Yay. The only one I’m interested in is Felix. Hope he’s prime or sig. originally I was thinking maybe a 95-97 that could be prestiged to 97-99. But if Torre is a 98, who knows.

I imagine most people will be going Felix unless they make the decision to sell and Torre/Ellsbury are rarer/more expensive.

Another thought. Instead of Ellsbury, it could be Damon.

Damon would then throw of Felix cause he doesn't have 300+ steals

SDS

Johnny Damon has 408 steals

SDS

Tris Speaker 436 steals

Johnny Damon has 408 steals

He has 2 all star appearances bringing the total to 17 instead of 16 though. Would rather have Damon than ellsbury no doubt

SDS

Other bosses are 2011 Adrian Gonzalez and 2015 Dee Gordon, both won Gold Gloves and Silver Sluggers and were All-Stars that season. Also they fit within the SB and AS requirements.

Ah. That’s right. Forgot that part

You are right my bad was looking at the wrong column

SDS

Can't wait for his "Hit XX Doubles" mission.

SDS

I'm torn on this one, had planned on taking Felix, assuming he is one of the three, but I really need a C. And I don't have a lot of options when it comes to Braves players this year, nice to see one drop.

SDS

Damon doesn't have a Gold Glove. Going with Ellsburry

SDS

Remember these guys will prestige up also , so all should be 99’s

SDS

There is no way that Torre should ever be a 98 OVR.
He was a good to very good player, his three year run from 69 to 71 was impressive.
I am of the belief that cards 97 and up are for the best of the best, Hall of Fame level talent.

I know this is a video game, but SDS should not pick and choose when to apply reality and when to sprinkle fairy dust on a card to boost it's ratings.
I know we have prospects and future stars and I do not like thier high ratings, but those cards are what if's and what is sports talk other than never ending what if's?
Torre's career is done, there is no what if. His numbers, his accolades and bold print stats are there..no way should he be a 98.
Give him a 94 OVR for his MVP year in 71, but that should be the top rating for him.

He won MVP in 71, batting .363 while leading the league in hits and RBI...

That sounds like a 98 to me...

6.9 fWAR is not worthy of a 98.

6.9 fWAR is not worthy of a 98.

a 171 OPS+ is 5 points lower than Mike trouts career OPS+, is Mike trout not a 99 overall SS card?

EDIT: a 171 OPS+ was 3rd in the NL behind Stargell and Aaron, would have been 2nd in the AL.
