SDS

With all the new content what are the best players (in your opinion) by position?

Myself I have:

C - Perez
1B - freeman
2b - turner
3b- seager
SS- Franco
Lf- vlad sr
Cf- mantle
Rf- Ruth

SDS

Tatis is light years ahead of Franco. Soto is probably the best right fielder as well.

What Tatis card? His diamond 95? It's not even close to Franco's 99 card

Ah, ok, I haven't played that much in the past month or so and haven't bothered with anything I couldn't buy. I thought he must have a 99 card like everyone else lol.

I like the fact Franco is a switch hitter

Lindor is better than Franco. Tatis is the best SS, then Lindor, then Tre.

OF has too many to name -- it all comes down to personal preference.

1B is Ruth & Frank, depending on which handedness you prefer. Or platoon.

2B is Mookie, especially since there are 1000 OF options.

3B is still Chipper. Though I love the PS Devers.

C for me is Adley.

Fevers is way better than Chipper imo.

Soto is too slow for me to put in the OF. He is probably the best bench bat though. The defense is definitely better than last year; and I think the hitting is either the same or close. I didn’t check the attributes of last year’s.

My current lineup. I would also add my personal preference is speed, power, position versatility and defense in that order. I also like a good balance of lefties and righties in my lineup, so switch hitters are the best of both worlds.

Tatis SS - no debate here
Griffey LF- maybe the most balanced card in the game. If you want a true LF go with Oneil or Hank
Mays CF- his defense is a difference maker
Mantle- RF- I like his speed and switch hitting. That gives him the advantage over many of the guys. Although Acuna is still glitchy
Ruth 1b- Tons of guys Ortiz, Votto, Frank, Vlad Jr, FInest Freeman, Finest Muncy, Prince I still like Ruth.
Chipper 3b- Again switch hitter solid defense, really no holes in his game. Im actually playing Finest Freeman here with Chipper on the bench.
Mookie- 2b- he does it all. Ive tried all others, always come back to Mookie
Foxx C- best offensively but out of position. Same applies to Schwarber. Perez is also nice, but soooo slow, same with Posey. Adley just did not have any pop for me. JT is probably the most balanced from a power, speed, defense point of view.

Jackie, Turner and Wagner still great bench guys, with position versatility and speed. Vlad Sr. and Hank are also solid options in the OF. I really like speed in my OF though, Oneil is also a great choice. Muncy is a dark horse if you like his swing and he has positon flexibility.

SDS

2B being Trea Turner? OP knows what he's talking about, 2nd best card in the game.

His reaction makes up for the speed. His bat is definitely worth it bro

The bit I’ve played with the finest Tatis immediately reminded me of the Turner card. He’s just automatic.

SDS

I might be in the minority but I like Tatis in center, with Griffey and Soto filling out the rest of the outfield. I also like Trae in center

I will definitely try him out there. I am always up for trying new cards out. There are so many outfielders, I might as well try all I can. His hitting attributes are great and I know he has a great swing.

Mantle in center with Mays in right is the move. Mantle is only diamond defense in center (Parallel 3) where Mays is Diamond in any of his positions.

I don’t have the 99 Griffey yet but I had the one below it and used it today. Juniior hit a homer and made a defensive gem of a ball that might have been a home run. Just saying you don’t always need the latest card.

This weekend I'm gonna do a massive sell off of everything I don't have locked in and build the best possible god squad I can come up with. Here's my current lineup:

C Jimmie Fox
1B Babe Ruth
2B Jackie Robinson
3B Chipper Jones
SS Honus Wagner
OF: Hank Aaron, Mickey Mantle, Willy Mays

Now here's every 99 hitter card in the game that I don't currently own: Francisco Lindor, Nolan Arenado, Stan Musial, Josh Donaldson, Johnny Bench, Cody Bellinger, Bryce Harper, Todd Helton, Larry Walker, Al Kaline, Ralph Kiner, Rickey Henderson, Eric Davis, Lou Gherig

Are any of those guys a noticeable upgrade over what I already have?

Upgrade??? Hard to say....there are a lot of great players listed but your team can be argued against any of them. Personally I prefer Lindor at SS bhecause he's a switch hitter though Honus has better speed.

Rickey and Davis are hitting, stealing and scoring machines but your outfield is very versatile. I also love Yelich our there for his quick bay and lightning speed. Not IRL anymore but his 99 is pretty amazing.
