Spencer Torkelson

I don’t currently have him. Is he really worth it for the seventh-inning boss? Or am I better off picking up Aaron or Gwynn and selling them? Thanks

SDS

I guess the better question is, what would you do with the stubs if you sold Aaron or Gwynn?

SDS

Just trying to get an idea if he’s worth having. Yes or no?

SDS

Not really, he's literally the only boss I've never used. There are way better 3B out there and both Hank and Gwynn are excellent.

However, might as well collect as many cards as you can unless you don't care about that. There's nothing left to buy unless you really want a 91 Heath Bell for 250k.

So if you’ve never used him, why should he listen to your opinion?

He’s actually not that bad and this time of the year is the time to try different players, stubs are useless at this point

Fair enough, I mean to say that from what I've read on here and he seems to be universally disliked for his swing. However, I'm not the right person to give an opinion on whether he is worthy. I have used him a handful of times but could just never get his swing going. So, saying I never used him was an exaggeration.

I also said might as well collect as many cards as he can aka, go ahead and get him. I agree stubs are useless at this point.

I ended up getting him because I do like to collect the cards. And he hit a home run in the second game I used him in. He isn’t Griffey Jr., but he ain’t that bad.

I'm gonna throw him in my lineup tonight and give him another chance. Im not usually one to just pass over a good card because of what everyone says and that's exactly what I did with Tork.

SDS

I like Tork. He went 5-5 with 5 homeruns the first time I used him in an Extra Innings Game. I like his swing.
