Cards that surprise you

SDS

For me, this description fits the 4th Inning Jacoby Ellsbury to a T. When the bosses were first shown, I laughed at the thought of someone taking him over Felix or Torre. Now? I can't take him out of my lineup (which puts one of Trout or Mantle on the bench because I've got Griffey Jr. in CF). The same can be said for that POTM Didi Gregorius.

Is there anyone that has surprised you to the point where you just can't take them out of your lineup?

SDS

Brian Roberts, I've got so many 2B to play, Brujan (Currently at short, but eyeing up that Ernie and idk what I'll do with Brujan then), Just got Jackie, but I can't take Brian Roberts off second, I know that.

Hitting .376, 1.064 OPS and for whatever reason, he draws walks, (26 walks to 15 strikeouts)

SDS

Daniel Murphy. After failing with POTM Correa, 99 Ryne, Panda (at C and moving Biggio to 2nd), and many more, Daniel Murphy has a 1.537 OPS in 107 PA for me. He has an amazing swing, and my only complaint as far as defense goes is that he has a poor arm for relay throws to home. But I can deal with that considering 66% of his hits are for extra bases.

The 85 POTM Mondesi rips bombs all over the place. He’s long been out of my lineup, but I thought he’d suck at first look.

I can't hit with Correa either. I loved him in year's past but he just wasn't doing it for me this year, plus he's a righty and I had enough of those.

SDS

Brian Roberts and victorino.

SDS

Ellsbury, Sandoval, Sandberg.

SDS

The new Prime Griffey Sr plays really well in the current event.

SDS

Tommy La Stella... No joke. He's been crushing the ball for me

SDS

Elsbury but for the opposite reason he surprises me because not 1 person has had a hit with him against me yet and I really want that card.

Eddie Mathews surprised maybe wrong word or rather surprised to be hitting 750 with him.

Only real surprise was Modessi tbh.

SDS

Yasmani Grandal.

Ellsbury is definitely a great candidate for surprise card. I also have to add 85 Jorge Posada to the list as well

SDS

Jazz for sure but Bryce Harper was hitting like crazy for me

SDS

Just started playing ranked. I'm 5-0 and 88 Tatis is a beast. Im hitting .722 with 2 HR, 4 doubles, 2 triples, and 7 RBIs. Just hit for the cycle with him against Kluber. Also has 2 stolen bases and plays elite defense. If I didnt see his stats and just played with him I'd think hes a high 90s rated card.

SDS

Peralta and Seager FOTF cards raked in the Events. Maybe people just weren’t as careful pitching to them.

SDS

Tony Gwynn is a base hitting machine! I cant seem to take him out b/c he does so well at getting on as my lead off. He's extremely fast as well as great defense.

SDS

Eddie Murray, it’s a good card but plays elite for me. So many clutch hits

SDS

Sandberg, correa

SDS

Everyone seemed to dislike Sandberg. I used him in some showdowns, and he performed well. Now, hes claimed the leadoff spot for me.

SDS

Alek Thomas - dbacks TAFS he takes - plays an amazing center, only downfall is he has an incredibly weak arm
