What’s the bigger L?

SDS

Not announcing a thing about your game that’s supposed to release in just a little over 2 months.

OR

Finally implementing prospects/future star cards and not giving cards to the top 2 prospects.

Honestly at this point I’m thinking they could be XP Reward path options for 21.

SDS

Top 2? Marco Luciano is arguably #1 and doesn't even have a card and then there is Kelenic, Adley & Julio so that's 3 already. So yeah, definitely agree as I have had to run the 90 Adley out there a few times in this East Event just to get a taste. Switch hitter to boot....

https://www.mlb.com/prospects Ok sorry I was just basing it off this you can make a case for just about anything tho

SDS

Yeah - I'm HUGE into dynasty leagues and fantasy baseball in general. Fangraphs, Baseball Prospectus, Baseball America, The Athletic (for Keith Law) and a few other also have great sources for rankings. Marco is going to be something but is still very young and was top-15/20 in last years rankings. I expect him to be #1 by end of 2021.

SDS

They always release the game later on new gen...

SDS

I think Wander Franco is a consensus #1 prospect when MLB 20 came out and is probably still top in most rankings.

Well of course, because Wander and such will likely have graduated by then. Wander > Luciano

Not for fantasy IMO but that will depend on what Wander brings besides BA. I like Wander don’t get me wrong but for fantasy you need the 5-tool guys to win.

Wander is pretty young, he's going to get more power then as he grows, those doubles will start turning into home runs. I don't think he does much on the basepath type thing, but 10 sb a season isn't crazy to predict. He will bring more then BA

Don't take this as dumping on Luciano, he's going to be great to, they probably end up being the same type of player, great average, decent power, stolen bases here and there.

SDS

Agree - he's a stud and the consensus #1 for a reason right now. But if he tops out as a 15HR / 10SB SS with a high BA then he's not as "elite" as a #1 ranking might portend.

I don't think he tops out at that, he will be more than 15 home run guy

The biggest L - the gameplay

SDS

Dont think you can say much about not knowing anything about 21 yet given all that has happened and slowed things down over the last year. Hell we dont even know when the MLB is starting yet. And The Show usually comes out right before or when the MLB starts. Not to mention the biggest wrench of all thrown in this year with the PS5 and supposedly also making the game for other platforms as well. Outside of COVID and the lack of in studio, in office work time being reduced, especially in California, the expanding to new platforms and developing for Next Gen consoles is enough alone to delay news.

I better see a Spencer Torkelson card. No exceptions.
