No Prime/Signature Shortstops for next Event

SDS

Only Zobrist qualifies with a secondary at SS. There are no Prime/Sig SS yet. Who will your SS be, assuming Bronze or Silver cards are allowed?

SDS

Sandberg and Biggio would both have serviceable defense at short. Sandberg would be my pick (don't have Biggio).

If you have Sandberg I’d assume he can be serviceable at short. If not mondesi seems to be the play

What about Roberts he has secondary at ss.

SDS

Roberts only plays second, Sandberg plays 2B and 3B

SDS

Bronzes...or commons...or nightmares

Just a guess the player program on Tuesday is for a prime ss. My guess is 92 prime alan trammel. Another light hitting ss with terrible xbh moments to finish to get him lol

SDS

Gonna try Ryne. If it's terrible I'll go with the best possible fielding SS and bat them 8th, pinch hit and keep another on the bench.

SDS

Simple. Manipulate you lineup. PH for your crappy offensive SS and have a defensive sub on the bench. Utilize a double switch if you have to. Shouldn’t be too hard to work around if it’s only a 3 inning game.

The schedule says that the player program will be a veteran legend. The headliners pack coming today is an MVP... weird that they put on an event where 1 position can not be filled (+ half of the bullpen)

If I can play silvers i'm probably going Didi. I'm hitting nearly .500 with that card in BR.

SDS

The 35 (or whatever it may be) win reward will probably be a prime shortstop

That was my guess too. We would have both been wrong.

Say hello to Lefty!

Ya i saw it was supposed to be a veteran but it went over my head.
Im happy its a pitcher, should be easy to finish

SDS

These events are all about hitting mostly anyways so you can probably stick an out-of-position player at shortstop and not get hurt all that much.

SDS

What an odd choice for his Veteran Card. In 1931 he was at his prime (31-4 2.06 ERA and MVP).
I feel like his veteran card should've been with the Red Sox.

Oh well. Pitching missions means easy stubs, XP and points towards 5th inning.

They want to save a signature/MVP card for another reward somewhere down the line, although it’s pretty baffling how this would only be a 92. He was pitching in one of the most run friendly environments in MLB history, only comparable to the steroid era, and still put up those ludicrous stats.

SDS

I hate most of the events cause it requires you to have collected so many tips of one series to field a competitive team. I liked the moonshot event cause it wasn't a specific series of players. There is not that many sig cards. There are some prime cards but alot several of them are high stubs cards.

That new prime cueto card does look nice and I like his delivery

This did the same with Chipper a Veterns card for 1999 it should have been a prime card the guy played for another 13 seasons.

For Lefty Grove he had only been in the league for 6 seasons. He would play another 10 seasons. It should actually be a prime or an mvp card cause he won the MVP that year.

Vet cards are supposed to be for the guys that are aging and they are not at the top of their game any more like the babe card 1935 is his vet card his last season.

Catcher is a tough one as well, only Torre really.

Edit: I forgot about the prime panda with secondary.
