Cobb or Mookie?

SDS

Any suggestions? I literally can’t hit with Griffey I’m not sure why but I’m done with him. I’m looking at either Mookie or Cobb. Lmk what you guys think

SDS

Love Cobb

SDS

Cobb, leadoff drag bunt -> steal 2B -> steal 3B -> sac bunt for a guaranteed RBI. That's how to abuse this game.

Exactly my point my good sir.

I also can't hit a lick with Griffey. I'm not a great hitter in general, but my struggles with Griffey are otherworldly. I've been using Soto (LF), Trout (CF) and Bellinger (RF)

SDS

As I've stated before, I'm not so great at RS, but even at this point in the year, facing 99 pitchers, I can still hit over .300 with Cobb. You should see the rest of my team. WAIT... don't look.

SDS

I'm hitting around .600 offline with Griffey but struggle with Trouty and Mookie. I'd use Cobb.

SDS

I’m also struggling with Griffey. I’m going to give him a few more at bats, but am considering plopping a Bryce Harper in there too.

SDS

love Cobb! been in the lead off spot since I got him, can't take him out! playing him in RF

I can't figure him out either. He's hitting like .190 for me but has 24 bombs??

SDS

Cobb, if you want you can put Mookie at 2nd

SDS

Cobb and he has a lot more power than you can imagine.

SDS

If you put Cobb at lead off most ppl will shift for the bunt and pitch high heat so you’ll hit a lot of gappers with him. When they don’t shift for the bunt then drag bunt. It’s not abusing the game and being cheesy with it, it’s just how you play

SDS

There are so many really good options in the outfield now. If you like lefty's Walker is an Animal and hits better against lefties. But I keep both Mookie and Cobb on my team, Mookie usually starts and Cobb is a great bench option. Otherwise if you're gonna start Cobb put him in Left.

I just can’t bring myself to do this.

Haha thank you!

Cobb easily

SDS

I don't understand this love for Cobb. He's a good card don't get me wrong. Perhaps great. But with options like Trout, Mantle, Walker, Griffey, Ted, Soto and Bellinger Cobb just doesn't make squads.

That being said, Cobb is balanced vs left and right handers and the better choice over Betts, but honestly neither of them should be on your team unless you REALLY have an affinity for one of them.

Everyone’s different. If Cobb was a power hitter and I hit home runs 24/7 people wouldn’t see anything wrong with it but since he’s a contact/bunt type of hitter i just play to the cards strengths that’s all.
