So how good is that Mike Schmidt card?

SDS

Looking at that card I see an absolutely elite defender with tremendous power. I wish the vision was a little better but it’s not horrible. When I did the Schmidt moment in Philly’s team affinity he smoked 2 long homers in 3 at bats on my first attempt.

Any thoughts on this card? Anyone have experience with it?

If you like his swing, he'll be a great card. I've never been a fan of his swing though, so I'm always horrible with him.

Luckily I use Strike Zone 2 camera so swings/stances don’t really deter me one way or the other.

Swing has more to do with speed than stance. Different guys have slower/faster swings and that has a direct impact on your timing.

Well, as I said I had great success with him in his Philly moment. I’ll try it again before I buy though just to make sure. 👍

I'm doing terrible with him, but the sample size is still too small to be meaningful. I also suck at hitting in general, so theres a strong possibility that his poor performance has more to do with my lack of skill than the card.

SDS

The best 77k i made in a while. Card always hits like buns.

SDS

I bought him to try out and gave him 10 games. Huge power but i was always late with him, i found his swing really tough to get to inside fastballs but anything left over the plate gets mashed. His d is incredible and made it really hard to switch him out but in the end he just didnt hit enough for me personally.

SDS

Great defense. I'm not really seeing the huge power yet. He may not be a good match for me stylistically but he was my fave player as a young kid so I'm going to give him some more time. I was running Correa at 3rd and Didi at short for awhile and Schmidt is a big improvement defensively, he's a vacuum cleaner with a cannon on the corner.

SDS

Tried him, I hit betrer with lefties, d is superior but have to go back to chipper.. Granted only about 3 games with him.

SDS

Out of curiosity, why the concern over Vision?

SDS

Beast mode with BAT and GLOVE.

SDS

I just put Killebrew back in there. Schmidt had the advantage defensively, but I feel his bat wasnt near the level of the big Killer.

SDS

Just wish he could knock it out at Forbes in that moment...perfect/perfect power swing hit the wall.

SDS

I will add, since playing a few more games with him I have noticed my opponents are much more careful pitching to him, so this cold be part of it. Him and killebrew are getting tip toed around. Guy did hang a CB in the last game and Schmidt hit a ball that still hasn't landed yet.

SDS

He gets a lot of hard hits for me but not getting HRs. Maybe they will come eventually, but I was hoping for a game changing bat.

Obviously plays elite D.

9/10. Thinking about trying Killebrew

1 moment isn’t enough to tell if a card has a good swing

True, so I went back and did the moment a few more times. His swing is absolutely no problem for me thank goodness. Just picked him up for my team.
