Who's going Diamond this Friday....3.2.1...and Go

SDS

Let's get this discussion started I'll start..

Gio Urshela
Jeff McNeil

SDS

Literally only Buxton is going diamond on Friday

SDS

Jeff McNeil? As a Met fan I can tell you he has no shot at diamond, he has hit so poorly this year he has been taken out of the lineup a couple times. Hopefully he starts coming around and I think he should buy definitely not going diamond tomorrow

Those 2 guys should go silver. McNeil has been useless especially

SDS

Ohtani has a small outside chance. He'll jump from 79 to 83-84.

Hitting wise, ya. Pitching? Dude barely makes it to the 5th inning, and has only made 3 starts because of a blister issue. He walks a lot of batters...

He won't unless his position changes to RF. Hitting attributes don't change a pitchers overall at all I don't think

Look at Hamptons silver slugger...

Sorry, but being fair, Ohtani starting at 79 is a joke.

True. Dude is legitimately one of the most talented players in the world. I think his pitching needs quite a bit of work to go diamond though.

Thus my 83-84 prediction. I gave him an outside chance because his gold selling price is already there. SDS should just make him a diamond and get it over with so people don't stockpile.

Dunno about diamond or not, but the biggest movers upwards should be Buxton, Vladdy, Burnes, Glasnow, Solak, Rodon, Kelly to name a few.
Other top performers are mostly high ranking anyways, like Acuna, Trout, deGrom, etc.

I don't think he'll go diamond but Vladdy needs a power boost. I've used his card a bit and it's not quite reflective of his current ability to go yard.

Too soon to go diamond for sure, but he should get the biggest jump imo.. should go straight to mid gold. He's truly arrived. This is no mirage.
Walking more than he's striking out, and like 7 of the 10 hardest hit balls of the year are his.. he's destroying everything. He's actually played very good defensively too!

Absolutely! I am incredibly excited about what he's doing all over the field. He took Max Scherzer deep twice the other night but his card has 54 power against Right, so I'm hopeful that specific stat gets a major adjustment. And for sure I agree he's going Gold.

He has actually crushed RHP much more than LHP his career thus far. He should have above 80 in both vs RHP easily.

In the POTM thread I was reminded he'll have a boosted card and that will hopefully get the power numbers right.

One thing I hope they update at some point is Acuna’s speed. It’s been seriously undershot in SDS stats since he came into league. I watch him everyday (going back to minor leagues). The guy is one of the fastest players I’ve ever seen. I can understand his stealing being less than perfect, but his speed needs to be at least 95 on his base card. I sometimes wonder how SDS figures stats like that on some players. They will say it’s a composite of the last 3 years. Well 2 years ago Acuna almost went 40/40 in a year that he was out some with injuries. Please update the base stats on some of the better players in the game. It’s not like they are obscure players. I understand leaving room for improvement throughout the season, but they don’t often update things like speed and defense on very many cards.

Rizzo. Dude's a pitcher now too lol

Is there speed rating not based on there actual timed speeds between bases?
