Anyone excited about Leather Part 2

SDS

So who is actually looking forward to this nightmare? 3 inning on All Star again, with your worst defensive players ( who won’t be used) so Finest players for the 10th time? ( maybe the last few who have not prestiged the top Finest cards?)...

Anyone who wants Rogers or Kopech either got them the first time when part 1 was somewhat interesting ( great defenders and Finest cards when they were new) , or have bought them.....

I love events and play that primarily, but not touching this one....

SDS

I'm a few runs from prestige Machado and not to far from Freeman and Betts, so I'll likely join for this. I was checking out some low fielding guys that I might also be interested in getting prestiged, but not many grab me....maybe Frank. Since just about all pitchers have under 65 fielding, I'm assuming they are all eligible.

SDS

I'll be playing it because I was out of town the first go around and only got like 8 wins, so I don't have the two rewards yet. Also I don't know what makes this one a nightmare compared to any other event unless it's stadium locked at a bad stadium

SDS

Was the first event quick counts?

SDS

I'm excited about this one. Finally have a chance to use my Finest players outside of RS!

Finally?

SDS

I am excited! Hope all the ringers stay home and let us common folks play.

SDS

ill be playing just because there is nothing else going on. I bought Kopech the first time so i can still earn him and sell. I also was banned from NBA 2k21 for some unknown reason so got nothing else to do

SDS

I'm behind on Ranked Seasons, so GL2: Age of Ultron is a pass for me.

Lol, who wants to play with 65 or less rated fielders? No one, so it becomes Finest event part 6 (7?).

Put some thought into what you are doing, SDS. Almost every one of these “themed” events you find a way to make the theme irrelevant due to inclusion of cards that have no reason to be in the event.

I agree that finest shouldn't have been included don't get me wrong, but less than 65 fielding is a fun idea on its own. But I'm sure that you or someone else will tell be the whole purpose of events is for prestiging and no hitter other than Ortiz, Thome, Frank, and Killebrew are prestigable so I'm not going to bother

Actually the contrary, I play events for the card rewards primarily as well as to be able to play short games that aren’t as stressful as RS.

I would be fine with using all 65 and less fielders if that was the hard line , and I think any card prestiged is cool.

But no way the you can compete doing that when you toss Finest in, so it makes the theme of the event pointless, as was the point of the thread.

So before you make another post about being sure what I would say, give it another thought.

SDS

Wonder if pitchers below 65 defense are included? If yes, looking forward to using Goose.

SDS

I would really enjoy this if they didn’t include any finest can be used. Just have the bad fielding be the end all be all. Would be nice for a change to hit one in the gap and actually drop due to a bad reaction on the ball. Or maybe get through the infield and not stopped by a highlight dive and throw.

It have more of a little league feel with guys kicking the ball around. Is it SDSs goal that we prestige every Finest card?

You captured it well. If you are going to have a theme, make us use the theme...great defense in part one, horrible defense with likely great hitters in part two...by continuing to include Finest,etc. it just makes the theme irrelevant...

The “Let the kids play” event was another example....Barely saw a FS or prospect on the field, all Finest cards again...

SDS

Just another Jason DeGrom event

Disrespecting Mr. Dante Bichette and Mr.Paul Konerko are we???

I like to think of church league softball with this event.

I forgot about Bichette. Really I forgot about Konerko too but Frank and Papi are just better cards. At least Killebrew can play left and Thome can play 3rd

SDS

I'm excited for this event to prestige finest/Thome/some pitchers I'm close to done with, but omg is building a lineup with a 97 ovr a pain!
