What are the best hitters for ranked seasons? I'm talking online only. I've recently started to focus just on RS. I've been sticking to hitters and pitchers that are prestigable just for fun to work on those. I've been hit or miss, particularly in the infield. My OF of Soto, Griffey and Mantle has been steady. I'm in a funk lately with Jimmie Foxx.
Anyway, who are the best hitters for RS, either by the smoothness of their swing or their ratings. Granted, using prestigable-only cards has limited my choices, but I'm going to open that up a bit and use the best. I have all the best choices available to me, minus the BR rewards. So, I have options. I just had set my mind to prestiging guys, but I want to find the best options.
Post-season Carlos Correa is my best hitter. Hands down
MVP Trout not even close!
Mookie Betts Finest for 2b. I'd you're looking to replace Foxx, it would depend on where you're playing him. 1b has lots of options - Bellinger, Babe, Stan, Ortiz, etc. If you're playing him at 3b, there's Machado, Aranado, PotM JRam, even FotF Brett. If he's been your C, try Finest Salvy, Finest Realmuto, Finest Stallings, Sig Posada, or Postseason D'Arnaud.
JRam for me
What's you're infield look like?
I was running Gehrig, Honus, Tatis and Machado. They’re struggling a bit lately, but I’ve had success in the past with them.
Max Muncy is a favorite of mine in ranked. I played a couple games earlier with just players I am good with/have enjoyed this year and had a fun time of it. I used this lineup:
CF: FS Robert
LF: Finest Soto
3b: Finest Arenado
1b: PS Muncy
2b: Finest Betts
RF: Sig Edmonds
SS: Finest Story
I finally prestiged Foxx and it makes a difference in his reaction defensively. I noticed it the very first game. He goes from bronze to silver and hops out of the box quicker.
