Theme Teams

SDS

I'm at the point where I'm just making some theme teams and throwing my guys out there.

I find them fun when you can't use any Sig Series. Love my All 80s Team right now...

C - 81 Topps Gary Carter
1B - 83 Topps Eddie Murray
2B - 84 Topps Ryno
SS - 87 Topps Trammel
3B - 75 Topps Brett
LF - 94 Topps Gwynn
CF - 81 Topps Ricky
RF - 87 Topps Dawson

Ryan/Seaver/Blyleven/Orel/Guidry

Fingers/Sutter/Smith

SDS

Nice little team right there. Bet you love taking out others "end game" teams.No end though..This will roll into 20..

SDS

I have a "Look to the Cookie" build which I sometimes use to mix things up. All position players have to have black and white pictures.

C PS Jimmie Fox
1b SS Lou Gehrig
2b SS Jackie Robinson
3B SS Monte Irvin
SS SS PeeWee Reese
LF SS Ted Williams
CF SS Richie Ashburn
RF SS Al Kaline

SDS

I was thinking of doing a build of a mix if free cards from completing moments combined with players you earn from completing collections.

SDS

1B: SS Hanley Ramirez
2B: Finest Fransisco Lindor
3B: SS Cal Ripken Jr

This looks like a lot of fun. I may build an all SS team, but I'd have to shift some players around and Aparicio may not make the cut because I love any opportunity to use the switch hitting bat of Jose Reyes. As a matter of fact, I'd put Omar at 3B over Cal (I always remember both as 3B anyway) and have 3 switch hitters in the infield.

Maybe make a spot for Curtis Grandson?
I remember when the Mets installed a special camera at Shea to show off all the double plays that would be executed between Reyes and Alomar. It was Alomar's worst year defensively.

I have the same team build but no CAP right now have DJ at SS and Gleybar at 3B. My Bench is also has 91 Didi and 90 Jacoby. I was really thinking of grinding a CF and making him Mantle.

Wow, Granderson slipped my mind. Going to add him in place of Bautista.

I think you mean Alomar and Rey Ordonez, not Reyes. Yeah, Almoar was a bust...as was Mo Vaughn. A Sig Series Mo Vaughn would be fun.

Nice! At this point into the year Im not grinding anything lol. Besides the good thing about the yanks is we have so many options especially the OF. I really wish they would make SS giambi.

You are right of course, it was Rey Ordonez and not Jose Reyes at SS.
Your bullpen may benefit from 76 overall Oliver Perez who pitched for them from 2007 to 2011.
Since the Mets will be paying Bobby Bonilla until 2035, isn't he still part of the MLBPA. If he is still part of the MLBPA contract would that mean that SDS already has the rights to put him in the game? Immortal Bonilla (contract).

SDS

Rey Ordonez is my cap.

SDS

I did an all Dominican team which consisted of:
Rf 99 Vlad Sr
Cf 98 Ketel Marte
Lf 98 Juan Soto
3rd 99 Pujols
Ss 97 Tatis
2nd 98 Cano
1st 95 Edwin Encarnacion
C 80 Gary Sanchez (no good Dominican catchers in this years game)

Rotation:
Juan Marichal
Bartolo Colon
Severino
Cueto
Can’t remember 5th starter

SDS

Must've been in the original RBI Baseball team:
C - Gary Carter
1B - George Brett
2B - Ryne Sandberg
3B - Mike Schmidt
SS - Ozzie Smith
OF - Andre Dawson, Dale Murphy, Tony Gwynn
Bench - Don Mattingly, Wade Boggs, Reggie Jackson, Allen Trammell, Cal Ripken

P - Don Sutton, Jack Morris, Nolan Ryan, Brett Saberhagen, Bert Blyleven

SDS

I have a theme team running for all 4 slots, based on periods: Pre-50s, 50s-60s, 70s-80s, and 90s-2000s.
