99 vlad looks like the best 1b now

SDS

Wow I hope I can master his swing. The card looks better than the Polar Bear i think at first glance.

SDS

He looks great. He's going to be really expensive at first. I can't wait to get him when his price drops.

SDS

I'm extremely conflicted. I started yesterday thinking my 1B was without a doubt gonna be Olson for a long while, and then Prince dropped, and now this...

Totally forgot about Eddie man lmao. Literally had him for 3 days, and sold him in anticipation of the Olson

SDS

So I looked at the calendar and there's going to be an All-Star program on the 15th. What could they possibly add? Legends?

I don't know what to do with Ortiz now lol, i now have the combo i wanted of Guerrero at first and Murray on my bench but i can't just banish Ortiz because he's been so good. Decisions

Vlad does have 3B secondary. I’m sure you have Chipper there, but maybe move him to SS or LF??? Would make left side a complete defensive roll of the dice, but having a solid shortstop might plug it enough to make it work.

I’m in same boat and thinking of ways to fit all these greats in without completely destroying the defense.

SDS

Thank god we got a 99 1b was starting to worry we wouldn’t get one 😅

I have awards Story/Wander Franco at SS. The struggles of finding who goes where when you own every card i guess haha. I'll leave Ortiz on the bench for now.

Chipper is at 3rd
Story is at SS
Wander is at 2B
Guerrero is now at 1B
Cespides, Dominguez and Trout have my outfield for now until i can aford Walker.

SDS

I think Ortiz is still just a bit better

SDS

Ortiz is still the best and no need to go away from him the rest of the season.. imo

His basically a Righty version of Ortiz with more pop vs leftys with the Lefty Pitcher meta going on that’s useful. also has Silver defense vs Ortiz Common defense I know defense isn’t a big deal at 1st base but who’s glove would you rather have over there ?. I’ve actually had a couple drop balls at 1st base with Big papi defense over there .

I must be the only one that can't hit a beachball with Ortiz. I have him P5 and I was hitting like .200 with him but force myself to use him to finish the parallel.

I have him Parallel 4 still 3k away from 5 but I smoke the ball with him vs Righty pitchers .

Mr. Fielder derby card way better

I always said the same thing about defense at 1B but those hard hit grounder balls late in a super close game always goes under the glove and there are a ton of straight monsters at 1B and more to come . 99 Gehrig is a given as well IMO.

Pitching against him I have his # as well. Last year couldn't get him out.

SDS

I'm 10 cards away from derby Fielder, he'll be my starting 1B over Ortiz only because I'm a Brewers fan. Ortiz will be an amazing bench bat.
