Well at least it was alot

SDS

I know , I know, they can’t all be winners but not sure a single card today that will crack a top lineup.

SDS

How is that Stanton a flawless reward?

SDS

It’s all preference really. One persons “top” lineup could be very different to someone else’s based off swing types, stances, etc. It’s not madden where ratings are the only things that matter.

SDS

I personally like having a little variety myself. I’m not battling anyone in World Series so a lot of these cards are fun.

Well you can get from the program too but maybe he’s glitchy but he’s exactly what I said he would be. And to make it worse he has a huge strike zone.

Paxton with a 95 mph fastball? Really lol.

I was excited for Gibson but 1 game with that control and was like Nah.

Maybe Harvey alright. Nothing that wows me but Gonna be a while before I try him.

Now I will admit any of these could play above the rating. But just looking at them I was like meh.

The real issue for me is that these BR programs are suppose to get better and better as we go. Leiter and Story are way better than Paxton and Stanton.

SDS

I have to admit having Harvey start a game with me in the Mets black uniform is going to be pretty sweet. And I’m not even a Mets fan.

No I don’t like this card at all. Been trying to hit a homerun on rookie for 10 minutes lol. Not sure I’ll bench story or chipper for him.

Yea this for sure. I already knew stanton was going to be an expensive bench bat but was hoping Paxton would be better.

he was the "Dark Knight" but the Mets haven't worn black since long before Harvey. They should have. Feel like every game he started was the blue uniform with silver letters and numbers

SDS

Again, you guys have to stop looking at it through the lense of the minority that are in world series and play on HoF.

I understand the frustration, but for most players these cards let them play with their favorite players and are 100% usable on all star or vs. CPU.

It would be fine if Stanton was not a flawless reward. Flawless rewards are suppose to be god squad level not just usable on all star.

I get that - I guess my point was we can actually make it happen now.

Harvey has to be one of the more hyped overrated players that I can remember. He had 2 decent seasons and that's it. I guess I will never see the fascination others have with him.

"Siri, what happens when a player has early success in the New York market?"

See:

Kevin Maas
Greg Jefferies
Bill Pulshipher
Joba Chamberlain
Derek Jeter (YEAH, I SAID IT!)

As a Mets fan, he was a must watch. He came from no where and just went after hitters. It felt like he could throw a no hitter at any point. He took many into the 5/6/7th, consecutively. He even had a game where he went 9, and only allowed 1 baserunner on an infield hit that could’ve been an out.

He also dated supermodels

He was the Jeremy Lin of MLB.

Babe Ruth in one season as a pitcher (1916), had a higher WAR (8.8) than Harvey has for his entire career (8.2).

He has 2nd base eligibility

@poksey_MLBTS
It's very clear you never actually watched Harvey pitch before his injuries. His rookie year and following year before getting injured he was amazing. Even when he didn't have it on a certain day he was still able to push through and limit the other team.
