Hershiser or Wood?

SDS

Just sold Greinke so my only good pitchers are Kluber and Hamels. I plan on getting Maddux in the 6th inning so I'm only looking for one. I dont have the stubs to waste on a 5th starter I'll rarely use.

Anybody use both?

SDS

Hershiser and it’s not even close. Wood can’t control a pitch. I used Wood last year and his control was poor, people say the same thing this year

wood is unbelievable for me - 122K rank he is going to be lights out for you just don't keep him in too long i am 3 games only in RS with him small sample size but he has a sub 1 ERA on AS too out of all things

there is also a reason woods' price is still one of the highest in all of the TAs

SDS

Just used Wood for the first time and he was solid.

SDS

Sounds like both cards are good. I could also sell Hamels and buy both. Idk.

I already got Hershiser. I'll give him a try after work.

SDS

I've used them both but only a couple of times each since I just recently got them. Both have been excellent for me but Woods control can be a little iffy. His stuff is so good though that you get a lot of swing and miss on pitches out of the zone. I can see how a good patient hitter might have some success against him though.

SDS

I really like both but if I had to pick one I would probably go Hershiser. But both are good and both are in my rotation

SDS

Wood has been money for me this year on AS. 5-0 and dont think I have only gave up 2-3 runs total.

Don't sell Hamels. Top 5 pitcher in game....

SDS

Depends how like going after batters if you like power pitchers with a a put away curveball then Wood, if you’re more into finesse And hitting the corners then Orel

SDS

Orel for sure. His sinker is tough to pick up. I got my first ranked seasons no hitter with him. Also had a complete game shutout. He is good. Wood is inconsistent and leaves a lot of pitches over the plate because of the control issues.

SDS

I would get both, since they're both essentially free. If you have to pick one, I would go with Hershiser. Wood is hard to control.

SDS

Orel can't be hit hard if you don't mix your curves and change enough with the stinkers... I'm done 2 of the milestones the 1st k's and 1st innings with him... 4.50 era mostly on all star... I struggled with him firstbfew games last few have been solid.. On all star I'd you play someone who's patient etc he will let quite a few runs.. Wood is solid, just the control

I tend to like control SPs and then bring in power pitchers out of the pen.

I'm usually pretty good at hitting power pitchers, though it may take time to adjust to them. Once I have the timing down I can sit fastball and I start to rally. I feel like good hitters will have an easier ti.e with Wood, especially with his control problems.

I usually prefer command pitchers as starters and then flamethrowers out of the pen to change pace. I bought Orel. Looking forward to trying him after work.

SDS

I would highly suggest the 99 John Smoltz over Oreal & Wood .

12 hours ago I just pitched 8 inning of a shutout in ranked with Orel, he also struck out 15 batters!

SDS

What a ranked debut I just had with Hershiser. 8 shut out innings with a solo blast to left field off Kluber.

i had a solid game last night, feller unbelievable as usual 7 IP 0 era 10K's no reason to take him ever out of my pen

SDS

The answer is BOTH and just throw Kluber in the trash
