HOME RUN DERBY LEGENDS!

SDS

Which Legend Home Run Derby cards are you hoping to see? Looks like we have 12 headed our way.

SDS

Buddy, that HRD Acuna from last year never left my line-up. Dingerzzz for dayzzz.

SDS

I'm not too excited for any of them to be honest. They'll just have insane power numbers with mediocre contact and vision, most will have average fielding. Last year's cards weren't really usable for RS either. The only place where they'll be useful is BR.

SDS

A josh Hamilton would be pretty cool

SDS

The Toddfather

No it wouldn’t. I’m sure the card would be good but the guy is human scum so I’m fine without him

The Toddfather

Need that.

SDS

I would have to assume Alonso will def be one

SDS

I would have to assume that

Harper
Alonso
Guerrero Jr
Schwarber
Muncy
Judge
Pederson
Acuna

Would all be locks. That leaves 4 spots open.

SDS

Of all the players currently in the game, these have won home run derbies before. If I were making cards, I would start there:

Dave Parker 1985
Andre Dawson 1987
Eric Davis 1989
Ryne Sandberg 1990
Cal Ripken 1991
Ken Griffey Jr. 1994, 1998, 1999
Frank Thomas 1995
Tino Martinez 1997
Luis Gonzalez 2001
Jason Giambi 2002
Garret Anderson 2003
Vladimir Guerrero 2007
David Ortiz 2010
Robinson Cano 2011
Yoenis Cespedes 2013, 2014
Tod Frazier 2015
Giancarlo Stanton 2016
Aaron Judge 2017
Bryce Harper 2018
Pete Alonzo 2019

Was there an official announcement about 12 HRD legends somewhere?

A HRD Cespedes would be incredible.

Out of these it would be nice to see

Thomas
Giambi
Vlad
Martinez
Griffey
Davis
Stanton
Cano
Cespedes
Parker
Frazier
and Harper

SDS

Griffey Jr w/ 120 power and a backwards hat quirk would be sweet!

Gallo but he already had 3 cards...

HR Derby winners in Game:
Todd Frazier, Papi, Eric Davis, Cespedes (x2) Luis Gonzalez, Cano, Garrett Anderson, Andre Dawson, Sandberg, Dave Parker, Junior (x3), Giambi, Tina Martinez, Cal Ripken, Vlad Sr., Big Frank, Stanton

Gallo has never even participated in the homerun derby so 3 cards or not he won’t get one

SDS

My guesses

Cal Ripken Jr
Frank Thomas
Luis Gonzalez
Garrett Anderson
Vlad Sr
Robby Cano
Cespedes
Toddfather
Judge
Harper
Alonso
Vlad Jr.

4 legends and 8 flashbacks. This is taking into consideration cards already in the game: Griffey has a 95 WS reward, Martinez has a 92 WS reward, Giambi has a 92 collection reward.

There’s also the excitement factor, of which the earliest guys have little to no excitement around their derbies. That’s pretty much the first 4 or 5 years (Dawson, Davis, Sandberg, Parker). Of course, Griffey would be the most exciting guy but like I said with the 95 in the game they probably won’t want to lower the price on him.

EDIT: I actually made it 5 legends and 7 flashbacks, but I still think these predictions make the most sense.

The only one I don't really want off this list is Ripken because of his stance and swing. I can never hit with him. Love batting with Gonzalez/Thomas/Vlad Sr and Cano though.

Where was this announced? The stream yesterday?
