Is Alomar worth it?

SDS

I hate doing collections this early but I love me some Alomar.

Thoughts? Will there be a better version you think?

SDS

We will for sure. But at this point, he’s great. Bats lead off for me.

SDS

There better be a nicer version!

Eventually I'd expect a prime or SS Robbie. Or even a 1992 PS Alomar

It’d be intriguing if they had an alomar that was endgame like his card in 17. There hasn’t been an Alomar card nearly as good as his AS in 17.

SDS

All I need is Cole and I'll have him. I'd look at it like this. If you get Alomar you're also getting Cole, Judge, Chapman, Giambi, Morton, Longoria, Sale, Victorino, and 10 points towards each team's TA. That's quite a few useful cards.

What is the collection for Alomar?

I disagree. He was just as good in 19 as he was in 17. The difference is that there were a whole lot of different options that were just as good as Alomar in 19 at 2B for cheaper. The only 2Bmen that were remotely close to Alomar in 17 were LS Seager and POTM Correa and they had SS primaries

17 Alomar was pure hitting. Insane stats for lefties and righties. Indians older Alomar..

19 Alomar was his Jays days. Less pop but the speed and fielding.. I prefer this version because that's how I remember him. "You can taste the punch!"

SDS

It's the AL EAST collection - gets the alomar

As mentioned above. Collect all the AL East teams.

SDS

Honestly, the only card that doesn't look worth it is the NL East Collection. The collection that I had to do because I'm a huge Phillies fan

His card in 19 was end game.

SDS

It's weird - I know the 19 card was better - but i'm hitting better with this new one... his swing has a weird glitch almost, like an undercut it seems, could be just me!

I think the collection card from the division that's best is the Tony Gwynn... not as end game as the 19 card, but i'm hitting over 560 in 5 games..

His card in 19 was end game.

Agree to disagree. Hornsby and Wagner were way better imo. There wasn’t a better 2b in 17 than that alomar.

Alomar is Always worth it

Get Alomar and that means you got Giambi. Best version of the Giambi card in my opinion this game has had. If hes not starting at 1st he comes off the bench. Either way you win. Also Al East is cheaper this year than any other year in sometime.
