I usually avoid making one of those "Who should I pick guys" posts , but considering how long the Prestige path takes, I definitely would love some community input from you guys.
So I have two teams I play with: Speed team and a power team. (Mostly, I play with my speed one.
Currently my lineup for my speed team is:
- 1B - Jackie Robinson (99)
SS - CAP (with 83 speed and 100+ power)
LF - Eric Davis
RF - Mickey Mantle
3B - Gary Sheffield
C - Craig Biggio
CF - Mike Trout, but sometimes Eric Davis with Cody Bellinger in RF
2B - Prestige Ryan Sandberg
Subs are Ellsbury, Killebrew, R Jackson, Posey, and Bellinger
My power lineup is:
- 2B - Prestige Ryan Sandberg
RF - Reggie Jackson
C- Joe Torre
CF - Mickey Mantle
1B - Harmon Killebrew
SS - CAP (Power over 100 both sides)
3B- Gary Sheffield
LF - Cody Bellinger
Subs include Mccovey, Biggio, Davis, Robinson, and Trout
I'm close to 300 stars and I was thinking of getting Maddux, (Currently using Smoltz, Orel, Paxton, Marchial, and Kluber for pitchers.) but now I'm not sure as there's alot of mixed reviews with him. I thought about Stan Musial, but many on the forum seem to think if you already have someone like Eric Thames, you don't need Musial.
Outfield is already a crowded position, so I'm not sure about Springer, but his stats do look pretty good for a power hitter and I'd replace Reggie with him. J-Ram doesn't look that appealing to me, but he's a switch hitter who I could put at 3rd or 1st without issues, though his defense doesn't look good enough for short or second as a secondary position.
We are getting closer to players with end-game position potential so I want to make this prestige pick carefully. Alot of possibilities at 1st base exist in the market for a good price from Thome to Mgriff , but Thames does seem end game.
Springer again does look like a good power option with good enough defense and decent speed in the outfield, but I could always buy Larry Walker. (And there's also alot of reasonably priced outfielders on the market.) J-Ram I'm just not sure. His defense just seems subpar in the infield besides 1st and 3rd. Am I missing something with him?
What are your guys thoughts? (Also if you see any room for improvement or changes, I do welcome the feedback.)
