Wait... why is Lee Smiths sig card a cardinal?

SDS

Am I missing something here? His hof plaque has a Cubs hat....
His best years imo are with the Cubs. He has 8 seasons with the Cubs, and only 2 full seasons(pretty much 4, but he split time between teams the first and last seasons) with the cardinals.

Why is his SS card a cardinal?

SDS

His SS was a Cubs card last year 🤷♂

SDS

It also isn’t a 99

He isn't a 99 because his career H/9 and K/9 aren't all that good for a closer and overalls for pitchers are heavily based on H and K/9

SDS

When you give Future Stars 99 cards, I think Hall of Famers should probably have them too.

SDS

Overalls are based on something? You could have fooled me.

Only guy deserving of 2020 finest is Trout? I'll admit that most of the finest didn't deserve it, but there are more then Trout

Shane Bieber comes to mind, Salvador Perez too. (.986 OPS, 161 OPS+)

Freddie Freeman had a freakin 1.102 OPS and an OPS+ of 186, both higher then Trouts 2020 numbers.

Boy, I hate to explain this, but my statement was sarcastic, echoing the sentiment from the guy above about candelario. The underlying point was that a generally average player was given sufficient attribute boosts to produce a 99 rating. I ACTUALLY don’t remember the name of the guy who got the finest for the angels TA4, which was actually making the joke/point more poignant.
