Who to choose in Diamond NL West Pack

SDS

I'm leaning Bichette. Gwynn never has done it for me. Pretty card, but can't hit with him. I've yet to see anybody rave about Willie Mays and I don't get it. If Gallo and those other power bums can rake so should Willie.

Webb or Gray a sleeper? Thanks for any help.

SDS

Webb is a sleeper, but his per 9s are pretty bad. Great pitch mix and 99 break on the sinker. Mays is just a kinda jack of all trades master of none type card. Pretty solid but nothing really stands out. Gray really isn't that good online. Bichette rakes but his defense is so so bad

I went with Webb first seeing that he was new, i followed him up with Bichette because i figgured pretty easy to hit 3 hrs with him and Gray because the 10 strikeouts is easy enough. I took Mays and left Gwyn for last because i've had trouble hitting with him in the past.

SDS

I took Bichette, and he absolutely rakes. If you can handle putting a bronze in right or a common in left, he's a great choice

SDS

Webb has been terrible for me. Bichette is a staple either on the field or as one of the top righties off the bench. Some of the best stats vs LHP in the game and his mission is easy.

SDS

I always get the pitchers first because it’s easier to complete their missions.

This; if your goal is to complete the program, go pitchers first. If it's to field a team, Bichette is a must.

SDS

You can't go wrong -- unless you pick the Willie Mays card -- in my opinion.

But if I had to rank them in terms of their usefulness and how productive I found them to be on my team, I'd order them like this:

  • #1 - Dante Bichette, OF (Rockies)
  • #2 - Josiah Gray, SP (Dodgers)
  • #3 - Brandon Webb, SP (Dbacks)
  • #4 - Tony Gwynn, OF (Padres)
  • #5 - Willie Mays, OF (Giants)

Summary: Bichette is one of the best lefty-killers you could get. Personally, I wouldn't consider using him in the field but as a pinch-hitter, he's incredibly useful. I could probably flip a coin on Gray and Webb. I haven't used either of them too extensively but I know that I liked Josiah Gray quite a bit when I used him. As for Webb, I was actually really excited to get him but in the small sample size that I've used him in so far -- he has disappointed. I'm going to give him another shot in the near future. The Tony Gwynn card would maybe be #1 out of this group if he had the Tony Gwynn trademarked 99 speed. Unfortunately, he doesn't -- and that really kills the usefulness that this card could have brought to my team. And the Willie Mays card just doesn't do anything really strongly -- and with so many better options in the outfield, I just don't see any use for this card.

SDS

Yea none of them making the team. No better stats look good but his bat just doesn’t pop like it would seem. The rest are bad cards. I think Dante on my bench as a RH pinch hitter just because those rarely get used enough to make me change it lol.
