HRD pack and Jr. collection

SDS

Anyone think that the HRD pack is kinda disappointing? I understand that HRD doesn’t suppose has the high contact. But these are kinda not comparable to the new FOTF in my opinion except Jr. Any thoughts?

SDS

Thats the point. These cards are supposed to be FUN, not competitive

Fair enough

SDS

Cano looks pretty legit I think.

I bought a pack. Got Giambi

How can they defend this as fun when just 2 days ago a [censored] ton of 97+ got dropped and a bunch were going for under 30k. All these cards are strictly bench bats and they debut at 50k. Smh. That's not fun that is another blatant cash grab.

SDS

The only thing disappointing was the fact they allowed pack addicts like myself to buy 5 of these things. Probably one of the more stupid moves I've pulled this year.

A 97 Cespedes with 112/122 power is the pure definition of fun. If you really don't believe these cards will be fun to use maybe this game isn’t for you

SDS

The other problem outside of value for stubs is Jr will be the last player in the Team affinity program for the M's OR maybe a Inning Program so your really just paying to use a better card now instead of waiting til Sept / Oct

I would have rather had a WHAT if Ruth did the HR derby and see a card for him or use a Legend ( 1980 and earlier ) like a Mantle or i think you get what i am saying but someone who is getting a card later that was know and does not already have 2 cards out now.

LS gallo has those stats already. So you define fun by...... repetition?

We haven’t had a diamond Cespedes since MLB 17 when his live series was diamond. So yes, that is a lot more fun then having the same lineup since May and saying “this card won’t crack my lineup, what a trash release” literally every time new content releases.

It could be "fun" just to mess around with him in an event I guess but to say these are anything more than a bench bat is not being honest.

Thats fine to say if all you care about is your RS rating. Last year I got so sick of using Gwynn, Griffey, Frank, Mays etc. because I used them so much. Trying new cards in my lineup is more fun to me.

SDS

Right now I’d say cano, zobrist or your cap are the best 2b right now. Cano looks legit. Cespedes looks pretty solid as well.

SDS doesn't set the price at 50k. We do. So who is the cash grab for? Just don't be dumb enough to buy those cards at that price.

I'd rather use FS Brujan at 2b.

If you don't think sds has a direct hand in the market then I have a bridge to sell you. They control exactly how many of each card out there. Creating the supply and the demand will always be there.

SDS

All of these hrd guys have one (obvious) strength but are seriously lacking in everything else. The 50k price on them is ridiculous even for the set completion. Investing in these guys is a guaranteed loss imo. Not a bad idea to grab some of the lower guys at basically quicksell value for bench bats if you need them though.

SDS

Fun for me is lots of new stuff to collect or grind for. If it helps my lineup that's great but if it doesnt then so what? I still had fun earning it. Not everyone bases their enjoyment of the game solely on how well they do online.

SDS

I’d be happy to use the 95 PS Griffey unless the 98 was priced relatively cheap. With the better defense at the cost of some contact and power vs LHP, the 95 is an appealing alternative.
