July POTM? Any guesses?

SDS

They just spammed with so many of the good cards that I’m having trouble thinking of a good lightning card that’s not a repeat

SDS

Batters: Adames, Fletcher, Pollock, Tim Anderson, Machado?

Pitchers: Maeda, Giolito, McCullers, Ray

SDS

I was thinking if Ray keeps going he’s may get the lightning. He’s been lights out. But if Anderson keeps his hot streak going they’ll pick him

SDS

Dont know how good hes been but goldschmidt is rocking a 15 game hit streak

SDS

If you go to fangraphs and filter July a few guys stick out at the top. Soto probably not gonna happen even though he’s been the hottest and his defense has been bad. Hoping for a machado card as a padre fan

SDS

soto. he’s got 5 hr’s in 4 games since his return from the HRD

Was my first thought but I doubt they give him another card. His defense has been pretty bad too so I’m not sure if they’d be able to even get his card to 99.

How has Soto's defense been bad? He has a .982 fielding percentage. Yeah, maybe thats not great, but what is tatis at? Although i do love tatis, which is why i went to see him at the game saturday, but how is soto bad?

Can't compare an OF fielding Pct to that of a SS.

Im not trying to compare donk. Just tell me how Soto's fielding has been bad?

Goldschmidt should definitely be a candidate .404 avg.477 obp .719 slug in last 15 games

You're not comparing the two? Ok, read above. You wrote it, nobody else.

SDS

Lol, was replying to a padres fan. Dont know where you came from. Just trying to have a fun conversation. Just curious why he says soto has been bad in the field. You're thoughts big man! Thanks.

SDS

Bad fielding can mean angles, not getting to enough balls, failing to hit the cutoff, bad throwing decisions.

SDS

I know fielding. But how is soto a bad fielder that he couldnt get a higher card? Give me examples. Worse than 20 throwing/fielding errors? Maybe im just a homer?

SDS

What about David Fletcher? Does a 26 game hit streak just not matter anymore?

SDS

How about they do a reliever most of the TA3 relievers aren't great and Raisel Iglesias has been literally on fire for July, 7 of 7 in saves, 24K's in 14 innings of work, a sub 2 ERA, .56 WHIP, 12 games pitched, 2 wins 1 loss, it would be great to have a sick reliever to have some fun with.

If not a reliever they could break it up with a starter like Kwang Hyun Kim, 3 starts 3 wins, no ER's and 10 K's in 19 innings of work.

Gerrit Cole has also been on a tear for July and he would be a popular option next best live series after Degrom so a lot of people would use him, 2 starts 2 wins, .6 ERA, 23 K's in 15 innings of work.

But yeah it'll most likely be Soto and we will have another outfielder to chooser from that we won't use when they drop 99 Mantle or 99 Mays or both.

SDS

I think we will see a Freddie Freeman card. Dude raked in July. .400 average so far 4 bombs 3 doubles and has added a whopping 21 points to his average. Only stuck out 8 times in 50 at bats and has also walked 8 times with a OBP of .475 and is slugging over .700. Only has an 87 overall live series. Good candidate for a 94-96 card , not a master card though.

SDS

I’d honestly give all my stubs for a high Diamond McCullers

I love myself a FF. His live series has suffered since the start and his hitting isnt as good, but if we see a 99 FF. I dunno. He may make my 1B.
