Larry Walker and Goose disappointing

SDS

Yeah I'm just gonna say it how it is. Larry Walker is nowhere near as good as last year, especially with the lefty meta right now I don't even want this card. Goose no outlier kinda sucks too.

SDS

Agreed 100%

How is this Goose that different from the AS version that is paralleled? Just slightly better bb/9?

Got on after work all ready to be a fool and spend 500k stubs for goose. I'll wait

Don't judge too quickly, but you may be right.

I mean the stats are right there for everyone to see. 125/125 vs righties is nice but I'll play another outfielder who can hit lefties, has more speed and higher reaction.

82 reaction, 69 speed is gonna be a problem. Even at parallel 5 it's not great. Decent, but not great.

SDS

Larry looks more like a PH vs RHP bench bat/defensive replacement (if you play a weak defender in the OF).

SDS

Goose with no outlier has to be a mistake right? Like one of those situations where they will change it if we whine enough?

Well let's try lol. But as of right now there is no outlier for some reason.

Goose is barely better than the 95. Easy sell. Larry is above average but not overwhelming

I personally really don't like corner outfielders with mediocre speed and reaction. Nothing more infuriating than not being able to run those bloopies or gappers down.

I'm going to stick with Jasson Dominguez I love that card I already have him parallel four. I actually think Finley card is better than the walker card.

Me 2 he's nasty at 98 speed

I’m obviously happy to welcome Larry to the squad but I definitely see where you’re coming from. I was thinking he might not be as good as last year just because he’s not a signature series. Because of that, the speed hit is a big loss, especially when talking “end game”.

Still going to be a very good card and at P5 he’ll be more than adequate in RF and have 85 power vs LHP.

Don’t understand why Gossage doesn’t have outlier. It’s honestly ridiculous. One of the fastest in MLB history.

Walker will be really good again. Wish he had more speed tho.

I agree with keeping Dominguez in lineup. He won’t leave CF for me until Griffey or Mantle 99s.

SDS

Goose is 36 years old for this card so all I can think is maybe he wasn’t as effective with the Cubs? Disappointing for sure as 102 plays different than 98.

That’s not how they rate the milestone cards. Glavine sure as hell didn’t throw 96 with the Mets. Maybe ever. Loften was slower with the Sox, etc.

I’m hoping they add outlier. Twitter release was botched for this card too.

Watch them release a Ryan 5k strikeout card without outlier too.

Walker looks bad but Goose looks amazing.

Goose is the exact same card as the 95 LS collection reward with slightly (<10 points) better on some the /9's.

I actually just saw that when I looked at his 95. So I stand corrected. My bad. If I made World Series I would get David Justice or Vida Blue still.

I'd buy Justice now if you're looking at him. He is under 40K. Vida is a good one. If you reach it today, sell either as both will be 500K+ for a few days.
