Hot take mantle is better than trout

SDS

I’d like to first breakdown their stats side by side for everyone:

Mantle:
Contact 110/125
Power 119/102
Vis 91
Disc/clutch 125
Bunting 71
87 fielding
94 arm
91 arm acc
88 reaction
92 speed
80 steel

Trout:
Contact 116/97
Power 125/112
Vis 86
Disc 125
Clt 108
94 fielding
89 arm
90 arm acc
93 reaction
90 speed

Mantle has the way better power than trout, jus a little bit less power but better hitting stats for the rest. Trout has slightly better fielding and reaction but mantle has the superior arm strength and speed in the outfield. What puts mantle over the top though is he’s a switch hitter imo

SDS

That isn't a hot take most agree on that

SDS

Coldest take since https://youtu.be/pNQAxuTR4Fw

Good, mantle cost more.

SDS

This isn't a hot take, that's pretty much accepted.

SDS

This isn't a....

Ya, probably not right now, but when the live series 1st came out, live series was definitely more. The issue is if you haven't done the LS, getting the cards If probably close to impossible.

SDS

OP this riveting take has completely changed my life

Thank you

SDS

hot take mantles better than everyone.

SDS

Only reason to go after Trout is if you want Mantle and Trout in the OF with one playing a secondary position (assuming you have Mick)

SDS

Mantle is 100% the best card in the game and will be all year. This is a cold take.

SDS

No sir, that is pointing out the obvious.. Here’s a hot take for you.

Mariners make the playoffs this year.

SDS

Mantle is definitely better but Trout would be my second pick, once I get him Shef is getting the stanky boot
