42 Series - Team Affinities

SDS

So we've had a few weeks now for people to earn or at least try the 42 series guys in Showdowns and obv Nico and Joey are as good as we thought they were going to be but who are the guys you were initially lukewarm on but have impressed you and who were some guys you thought looks really good but have just underperformed for you?

Personally - Im going to the AL East with Bo Bichette and Anthony Santandar for me have overperformed. At the start of the season looking at their stats neither of them looked like they would blow me away, but if I hadn't packed Acuna early on i think its safe to say Bo would be my leadoff hitter - he just seems to find a way to drop hits in even if I don't hit bombs with him. Santandar I will almost always pick him in the TA showdowns - something about his swing just seems to click for me.

The underperformer for me has gotta be Kyle Lewis - i know some guys love him and say always take him in Showdown but I just cannot get a handle on his swing. Everything off the bat feels soft and I cant even say he has warning track power because that feels like a stretch.

Who you guys got for this?

SDS

The only answer is Trent Grisham

SDS

Yastrzemski is the best imo - I LOVE his swing. Currently hitting .517 online with him in just over 70 PA's, would definitely recommend giving him a shot. Muncy is also really good - he has a beautiful swing and a 2b secondary. Grisham is also a cheat code vs righties AND lefties. idk why but he mashes everything on top of 90+ speed and diamond defence

The Ketel Marte was super underwhelming to me, he seems to play far below what his stats show

SDS

To be honest so far Dansby Swanson. But i still have alot to get still.

SDS

I pick yordan Alvarez and Xander bogaerts everytime if available, sixto as pitcher. Horrible luck with Danny Swanson

SDS

Maybe it's just me, but Idk how people hit with Gallo. I'm pure garbage with him.

SDS

My favorites are Salvy Perez and Tim Anderson so far

I feel ya on this one - I always feel super average with Gallo

SDS

Sixto Sanchez, Yordan Alvarez, Dominic Smith, and Xander Bogaerts are the best ones imo

SDS

People actually like using Leg kick Lewis?

SDS

Kyle Lewis has been a beast for me. I’m pretty much running a lineup of 42 series players

Yordan is the best pure hitter but bad defense. Niko Goodrum has been a beast for me, highly recommend him at 3rd

Willy Adames and Bichette have been amazing too...And then Santander also hits above his stats

The TA 42 series players are amazing for being free, and once paralleled, even better

SDS

Salvador Perez and Dom Smith. I don't hit as well with Muncy as I thought I would or as well as with other 42 guys.

SDS

LS Yordan was arguably my best hitter, even over my diamonds. I just got the 42 Series Yordan yesterday, I'm pumped to start using him. His D is suspect and I have to stick him in RF (Have Yelich in LF and Trout in CF) - but can't say no to that bat. Eventually, he'll go to my bench as my top pinch hitter.

SDS

Yordan and Salvy, they are out of control.

SDS

My favorite out of all of them has been Mike Yastrzemski. Gallo has been underwhelming this year. Max Muncy has been a beast as well. Kyle Lewis is another good one and Dominic Smith.

SDS

I have loved kyle lewis in events he robbed a homerun for me, and then hit a walk off on an 0-2 count. obvi gallo, yordan, and niko are thriving. id say I thought minnie would be better for me but he just hasnt and yaz/ muncy are not doing well but it was when the game was very lag heavy so I may give them another chance. Perez has been hitting nothing but solid contact outs meanwhile I just got sawed off for a double with gallo bc of the shift. dom smith has been fun pinch hitting and same with the franamal

This is the ONLY right answer

SDS

I have completed the NL west and Muncy is good, I just need to have patience with him when I do it is good.

SDS

I always pick Yordan, Santander, Bichette, Goodrum, and Smith in Showdowns. Bogaerts and Anderson have been pretty good too.

Pitching I will always take Berrios or Sixto.

SDS

Out of the players I have, S Sanchez, J Gallo, D Smith, & Y Alvarez have been very good for me. I just started working on the AL Central so Sal Perez is up next to upgrade my catcher position.
