August POTM

SDS

Who are your front runners right now? I know it’s early

SDS

Tatis just helped his case a little. Judge looking good for it as well early on. It will be interesting to see who stays hot and who heats up. I have never played this game with a real season going on until now so this has been pretty fun.

SDS

JT Realmuto

SDS

Nicholas Castellanos or Tatis

If it weren’t for Topps Now (so pretty much excluding Bieber), what about pitchers?

I think Plesac is going to get a card, probably not the lightning card, but he should get a Diamond.

Lance Lynn is dealing as well. He is on the bump tonight, so we will have a better idea if he is Lightning material.

Edit: He pitched 5 innings, 2 ER with 6 K's. Got the W if you care about pitcher wins.
His ERA is 1.16 and his ERA+ was a mind boggling 842 before this start.

Bieber is getting a card, possibly the lightning.

He just got a Topps Now.

Hmmm fair point, he has been dominant and probably one of the better pitchers of the month.

There's no way they're rewarding Plesac in any way after what happened today.

What happened today?
The Tribe haven't played

Edit:
Nevermind, I just googled him. The players sent him home, good for them. Players need to hold each other accountable.

Acuña! 3 HRs today

It sure does start one off! lol

100% Castellanos or Tatis. Which is funny because if we didn’t have a season Castellanos might have got the lightning card anyway

SDS

I don’t think it will be a pitcher. Tatis would be who I’d choose. Only because of his usability. He’d be like Correa with more speed. I could also see Judge just from a marketable stand point.

SDS

I'd love to get a 98/99 Tatis Jr. Always hit well with his cards and he would make a run for my starting SS.

SDS

Charlie Blackmon

SDS

Tatis makes sense. His HR and RBI are basically the same as Judge but his BA is 50 points higher and his OPS is 200 points higher. His WAR is way better too.

Haha yeah I was thinking that too. I'm cool with the Lightning from last August or a new one with the right jersey on.
