In addition to Carter and Yount.
Cobb is supposedly not in the game
Anderson has a low diamond version already

Where they pepper in the FS cards kind of makes predictions tough.

SDS

I would immediately rule out any cards that got TA cards last year: Evans, Thome, Yount, Bichette. Any players that already have diamond cards(Price, Carter, Pudge, Anderson, Oswalt). And players not in the game(Cobb, Martinez, Santiago, Ishrighousen, Boone).

SDS

I'm ready for Mick Abel or some other disappointment for the Phillies

SDS

Mariners will probably be Jay Buhner, not Boone.

SDS

Hoping Braves isnt Torre or Murphy, have never done well with those cards. A Future Stars Contreras would be sweet

SDS

WHat OVRs are these players gonna be.....my team (as I am sure a lot of others are too) is around 95 OVR and that's only because I have a few 91's that I really like. I'd LOVE a 92+ Gary Carter for example but a Gold card I wouldn't use. And TA cards I really didn't see much value in them...I completed the NL East and really all it was about for me was getting the 42 cards which are 88 OVR and can only max out at 93.

93-95 I'm guessing based on what has been revealed so far
