96 Stanton

SDS

What are the thoughts on Stanton out there? I start Justice & Sizemore in my corner OF spots and am looking at potentially adding Stanton as a lefty masher off the bench when I face one of Leiter, Blue, Glavine, Crochet, etc. and need to bench one of Sizemore or Justice. Can he get around on the inside heat on HOF? My other option is Braun and he's significantly cheaper but still has the 125/125 lefty stats with better vision. Defense is trash, though.

Stanton is phenomenal on all star and hof vs righties. His pci is small on legend but most are. Vs lefties he is literally the best in my opinion on all difficulties. His defense and arm make him way better than Braun, who is a bench bat at best but should never see the field.

Preciate it! I'm gonna give him a shot.

He's not awful but definitely not worth being a flawless reward and the price tag that comes with it, even though the market is tanked right now. I'd pay 35K max for this card.

SDS

He's pretty good but you get the same thing out of Braun for cheaper

At the plate yes but worlds different in the field

Flawless is beyond watered down this year. Anyone can earn these cards in the BR program. I don't even look at them as flawless rewards. BR runs are not even worth the time in my opinion unless you are working on the program. I guess if trout is your 12 game then its worth it.

I agree partially. I think Trevor Story and Al Leiter were deserving of being flawless rewards, maybe James Paxton too for some but I personally don't like that card. Stanton could be a headliner or a TA player imo.

I love Leiter amd sold story. Kept Stanton for now I like his swing while some don't. He holds more value to me that Braun because of his arm and defense but he is not a starter.

SDS

I know some people didnt like his swing last year, but that Postseason Mickey Mantle has similar attributes vs LHP, is serviceable vs RHP and is much better defensively.
