Need a new SP

SDS

I’m currently running with:
DeGrom prestige
Hershiser prestige
Bauer prestige
Palmer prestige
Seaver/Paxton prestige/Nolan Ryan

I’m considering Yu Darvish and prestiging him, any decent reviews?

prestiged Darvish would be an upgrade for sure.. also try Kershaw, Bob Gibson, Max Scherzer

SDS

Grove is awesome. Lamet is cheap and imo the second best finest sp behind DeGrom. In fact his repitoire is very similar to DeGrom. You can basically have two DeGroms

SDS

Thanks for the options, I’ve used Gibson with decent success. He’s probably the first name I left off the list. I usually hit Scherzer and Lamet pretty well, I’ve also used Lamet with mixed results. I’m very intrigued by Kershaw TBH, I can imagine that his prestiged card would be really tough!

SDS

People will laugh at this one but...Cliff Lee. I can locate with him with pinpoint accuracy 95% of the time. People also don’t see him alot so there’s value in that. And yes, I know his H/9 are not ideal but I don’t give up any more hits with him than I do any of my other starters. Give him a shot & see for yourself.

I stand by this

Prestige Kershaw & Chris Sale are great if you're looking to add Leftys to your rotation

SDS

Bob Gibson is your guy

I like Hamels and Lee. Another similar one that I seem to be the ONLY person to use annually is Jon Lester. Haven't used him that much last year but I was like 28-5 or something like that with him last year. Seems to induce a lot of weak contact and has what I consider a perfect pitch selection for a LH SP.

Agree 100% on them having perfect pitch repertoire for LHP, I’ve been rotating Lester and Lee quite a bit & they seem to be underrated

I recently checked 19 for another comp & came across that David Price card which would translate extremely well in this game if it ever drops

SDS

Darvish is solid. Reminds me of Orel and his movement but Darvish also has some heat. Kershaw should definely be in consideration for spot in your rotation. The other guy I really like is Walter Johnson. When I use him though I only let him go like three innings so people don't get used to his delivery.

SDS

I like the Cliff Lee suggestion, very different opinion than I’ve heard. I also bought Kerhaw and may test him out soon. I’d love to get Sale, but don’t have the stubs atm. Lester is an interesting one, Hamels was pretty popular earlier in the year...I may buy a few and stream them.

Lefty Grove is the best. You should grab him before hes a million dollar card if you dont already have him. In 50 or so innings for me, he has an era under 2, strikes out 20 per 9, and righties hit less than .150 off of him.

I have kershaw prestiged If you can get it you should

SDS

Walker Buehler postseason
Greg Maddux Signature
Kershaw Awards
Mike Scott Awards has also been great for me

And if you can get over their windups I highly recommend

Lefty Grove Signature
Walter Johnson Signature

SDS

I like Cole Hamels Sig. Fast wind up, easy to control, ball comes in faster then stats say.

I been trying Lester in the event just to try to get him the one online win for the inning objectives. He got absolutely shelled every outing. He just not not have a finishing pitch. Yeah he has the slider but you know how sliders hang online. Hammels and Lee are both solid for the price.

Mike Scott was a stalwart in my rotation all summer! I’ve used Maddux with mixed results, Kershaw was great in his first start, I just picked up Johnson and may try Grove! Thanks!
