Welp, that didn’t take long for Chapman and Banks ...

SDS

Yo start falling in price. We already know Chapman end game, but is Ernie Banks?

Made close to 250k stubs since Friday. Bought Chapman just now as a treat. Even if he drops more, doesn’t matter.

Wondering if Banks worth it. Right now I have Larkin. Correa as a bench replacement. Didn’t play last year and only till July in 18. Who may come later that would be better than Banks

SDS

There are going to be better SS in the game coming soon

SDS

We are still going to get a 99 Cal Ripken Jr, 99 Honus Wagner and probably a couple others that I can’t remember off the the top of my head rn.

I disagree. Honus will be the only shortstop worth starting over banks for the rest of the year IMO. Ripken's swing is booty and all the other SS from previous years just don’t have the power that banks has

SDS

Banks is an absolute beast. Best hitter on my team already.

We will revisit this in 5 days when 30 new 99 TA cards drop for free. Banks is OK, I enjoyed using him enough I suppose. But he's not 180K OK.

His price will go down. They will release plenty more ducks packs for free later on. And I guess we will see about TA3. I personally don’t think they will be 99s because there is literally no other place to release the 96-98 sig/prime/awards cards at this point. Even if there are 99s in TA3 I think it’s fairly safe to say 20-23 or so will be outfielders, pitchers or first baseman so I still don’t think there aren’t going to be many cards that compete with banks for a spot at short. Other than CAP, Honus, and a potential finest lindor/awards Trevor story, they just won’t have the power that Banks has. You could play a 99 Chipper there, sure, but his fielding wouldn’t be up to par

I have over 100 AB's with him online, like I said, he's fine. But with the content this year, he won't be the only option, or the best. To assume the best SS of the year is out already is short sided IMO. Use him, love him, keep him, nothing wrong with that.

Cutch hits better for me than Mantle, everyone has different experiences with the game, that's what makes it fun to play.

Well said, the only flaw with your logic is saying it would be short sided to have the best SS out already. The best SP in the game came out immediately once the game released. If we’re talking stats it’s one thing, but everyone knows players stats don’t mean everything with this game. It’s entirely possible that Banks ends up being the most user-friendly SS in the game.

No that's fair. I expect the best cards this year to come from the TA's. That takes the most work, and they aren't going to introduce a new game mode/rewards just to disappoint people after grinding so much.

We will know much more soon!

I think the TAs will have great rewards. The fact is that the only new shortstop introduced this year is Rollins. Outside of Honus or a 18 Finest lindor there just aren’t a whole lot of other possible options at that position

SDS

Do you think Rollins gets an MVP card? I could see that competing with all the best shortstops in the game.

Assuming so, he will definitely get an upgrade

SDS

This is by far the best Ernie Banks the Show has ever seen. He’s smooth in the field too.

I love the card. Sold him because I knew his price would drop, but missed using him so I bought him back.

I disagree with this. If you are talking about Corey Kluber, he is actually fairly easy to hit. He isnt like a 99 Chris Sale or King Felix.

The only one who will top Banks is Super Rare Honus and if my dreams come true, Mariners 2000 Alex Rodriguez (not likely)
