Randy Johnson as the MLB collection reward. It’s usually what they do with a big new legend.

True but the final reward has never been a SP. he will probably be a divisional with a better one to come later. Probably a 12-0 or WS at one point.

If Aaron was ever going to be the main collection reward, it would’ve been in 21. Making him the reward in 22 would be super underwhelming and boring after he was just a boss that most people didn’t really even use anyways in 21.

Yeah after thinking about that I agree. Honestly don't know who they will go with.

I still think it’ll be someone new they haven’t revealed yet. Someone like DiMaggio would be my realistic guess, but Arod would be amazing.

Ichiro?

Not enough power to warrant being the main collection reward.

Ichiro?

Are you kidding me? Ichiro was the greatest player I will ever see in my lifetime. The power numbers are irrelevant if they can swing gameplay back towards the ‘20 system which allowed contact hitters to be viable. Not everyone wants to play the ‘19 & ‘21 style power game.

Also, let us not forget that 2 years ago Craig Biggio was a collection reward.

If ichiro wanted you dead you’d already be dead... I mean if he wanted to hit a homerun he would... the legend of Ichiro’s mythological power greatness grows.

Who cares about power when you can bunt for a home run lol. Most exciting player I've ever seen and it's not even close.

I like these guesses. I copy you.

Agreed, Ichiro would be an incredible pick. Honestly, the way contact and "slap" hitters like Brock, Morgan and Gwynn hit in this game, he'd probably have good power numbers. His overall game is so well rounded I'd have in my outfield all year.

Plus, Ichiro didn't hit home runs because that wasn't part of his game. He chose to get 250+ hits, a .350 average, lots of SBs, Runs scored and don't get me started on his defense. But Ichiro had sneaky power.

Statistically, I guarantee you’ve seen better players in your lifetime lmao. But as far as the game goes, someone like Ichiro or even Gwynn being the main collection reward just wouldn’t make enough people want to complete it. Like it or not, a card having great contact and great power will always be more favored in this game than a card that only has great contact. Mantle, Mays, Jones, Guerrero all had contact and power. This is coming from someone that loved using ichiro and would love to have him back in the game btw.

And Biggio wasn’t the MLB collection reward, just the AL reward. Ichiro would be fine as the AL reward.

He's honestly one of my favorite players the show has had in it's history. Between the swing (He was a double and triple machine) and the speed in the outfield he could do it all.
