How does Stanton go from 83 gold to a diamond and J.D. Martinez not get a bump in rating at all?

Idk either, tbh.

SDS

I don’t know but sometimes investments don’t pay off. Mine didn’t. But maybe it just becomes a bigger investment in 2 weeks. Not everybody gonna be right.

SDS

I am a Yankee fan can’t stand the Red Sox honestly. But to justify Stanton getting the upgrade and Martinez not is something you can’t do. Stats say it all really.

SDS

Idk, why didn't jess winker get upgraded or a potm card? A whole bunch of players you can ask why about.

SDS

Exactly, I posted this in the other RU thread, if anything Stanton is a power only player and a +1, but a +2 is a joke. Martinez is a much better overall hitter with much better numbers. SDS just pandering to the biggest markets as usual over baseball knowledge, and how one of the nastiest closers in the game right now in Reyes still being a lowly bronze is an insult. Not even a high bronze. These bozos dont watch baseball

JDs defense brings him down a lot more than Stanton's does. If his fielding was in the 60s instead of being 45 he would be like an 87-88 with current hitting attributes. I wouldn't hold your breath on JD. Nelson Cruz has been diamond worthy hitting forever and his fielding holds him back

SDS

The defense thing i understand but Stanton essentially doesn’t play defense either. I don’t think he has played an inning in the outfield all year.

Jd was diamond two years ago though.

SDS

As always, pander to NY and LA, make sure they at LEAST have 4 diamonds at all times no matter what, bums in this studio with no integrity

JD had more speed a few years ago and his defense in ari still counted.
doesnt now and hes slower.

SDS

so what if he hits 50 homeruns, 100 rbis and average is .305 by end of season?
he still gold because of defense and speed? because some of these guys are on track for that!
you gonna hold them back??
