Springer or Thames?

@KILLERPRESENCE4 said in Springer or Thames?:

I get what your saying but I’ve love Springers swing and have crushed with him since I’ve had him. You are right though he is coming off my bench and is not a starter as mantle is my center fielder and is not coming out of my lineup even when I get trout. Trout will get pushed to left field

Ya if his swing is great for you than he’s a great player for YOU, no matter what the stats say or how other people bash cards, if he hits for you he hits, all that matters. Too often guys get stuck on best overall and stats and not how they perform. An example is I have banks and can’t hit with him to save my life. Other guys absolutely rake with him, but I can rake with didi who has clearly inferior hitting stats. So if I have to put one or the other at short, I’ll go with the guy I rake with. I also look forward to whats to come when I make inning or choice pack decisions. In the outfield there is still mays, Griffey, and Williams to come, plus whatever finest/postseason cards, where first base pujols, Thomas, and Gehrig are the only legit 1b I can think of in the future, and I can always platoon pujols and Thomas with Thames/Ruth. I wasn’t expecting Ruth to have 1b secondary tho so that changes some things lol

SDS

Yeah Didi does seem to have better power than his numbers would suggest.

SDS

Yeah Thames is irrelevant now with Ruth available. I'd argue Springer is too with Trout unless you're behind on collections.

SDS

Yeah I'm late to lvl 25... Now that there's Ruth and musial at first... And trout, walker and mantle... I thought it was ramierz easy, but now hornsby.... Who's the best bench bat? Thames?

SDS

I took Thames this before Trout card, I do not use the Thames card. I am close to springer only taking it for the postseason card toward Trout. I the only time I will use the springer card for Astros innings.

SDS

With babe out, thames is a bench bat now. And if you are going for trout, and you need ps cards, I say grab him.

SDS

Going with Thames!
