Lefty bats

SDS

I need a good and cheap lefty bat cuz my team is all rightys besides Lofton. What are the best lefty bats that are cheap or better yet free?

SDS

Joe Morgan
Reggie Jackson

SDS
  • Joey Votto is free. See player program. Easy to get.

  • Correy Seager is free. See player program. A little harder to get because of the grind.

SDS

Babe Ruth. Free. Its a grind but definitely worth it.

Both are free. See player program for Morgan. Jackson is unlocked through XP rewards.

SDS

Awards Blackmon is 15-20k last time I remember. Very good swing.

SDS

Lou Gehrig is free. See player program. But he is very hard to get unless you are very good at the game.

Is Morgan any good? His stats don't look like all that... also how hard is Griffey to get cuz Morgan is apart of that program... how much grinding is needed for that?

Awards Joe Morgan
123 CON R
107 POW R
92 FLD (💎 2B)
92 SPD 99 STL 99 BR AGG
Glitchy swing
Trust me this is the card you’re looking for.. plus you already have righty bats to platoon

As for Griffey it depends how close you are in that 10th inning program

SDS

Besides the obvious ones mentioned here (Seager and Ruth are the first two I would go after), how far along are you in the Nationals team affinity? He may be expensive on the market, but between the conquest map and exchanges you could potentially get Soto for relatively cheap considering the fact that he is one of the best bats in the game. Grinding for him from scratch didn't make much of a dent in my overall stub count.

Also, I don't know if you work the market at all but I flipped my way to 99 Griffey Jr. yesterday and I already have more stubs than I had yesterday morning. Stubs are pretty easy to come by if you find a card moving at a high volume with a decent profit margin.

SDS

Finest Kyle tucker. He is underrated, because he is in a stacked outfield. Finest Soto.

All I've done so far for Griffey is miggy so I only have 20 done... so not very far at all

How much grinding would I need to do for soto?

Also throw Jim Edmonds in the hat

All Morgan does is hit tanks vs righties. I love it because he has this quick swing while crowding the plate and the ball just looks awesome coming off his bat.

Are you starting from scratch? The conquest map gives you 30 points towards TA (plus you get packs from completing the map) and I think collecting all Nationals gives you another 10. Those maps go pretty quick since I think there are only four teams on them. I believe there are also moments and missions you can complete for points, but I didn't feel like wasting my time so I just went right for the exchanges. I got the whole thing done in an afternoon.

Regarding the exchanges, it's a matter of time vs. cost. You could save some stubs if you go for high level bronzes or silvers, but I wanted to get it done fast so I loaded up on golds from division rivals. You could complete each exchange with 3 84's and a silver, or 4 83's and three commons.

If you do the math it may seem like a lot of stubs, but you make back a decent chunk of stubs and cards (some of which are sellable) as you progress through the Team Affinity. Like I said, if cost is a concern you could go with bronzes and silvers, but putting in all of those orders is tedious work.

SDS

Not mentioned was Christian Yelich. If you can either grind the extreme conquest or do the showdown extreme he's very good.

Also, there's not a lot of mention of good cheap switch hitters. That gets you a lefty when needed and many of them are extremely underrated.

Posada, Albies, POTM Jram, Mondesi and Mantle are all fantastic. Also, that 94 chipper has come down a lot in price because of the 10th inning program. Mantle is the only one who is at all pricey, the rest are free or sub 20k.

SDS

I'll also hop aboard the Joe Morgan train. He is my starting 2B vs. RHP.
Guy does nothing but hit bombs and get on base.

love the Postseason Kevin Kiermaier card, free and nice pop
