I only have the AL West completed. Was kinda just slowly grinding towards completing the AL first, the do the NL. I managed to get Trea Turner after pulling off a 12-1 run in BR. After him, LAD is fairly inexpensive and Gibson looks like a stud. Should I just do that or sell off Turner to get me that much closer to the AL?
This is the first year I hardly care for the collection. Frank is good but there’s always a plethora of options at 1B and the grand reward is a guy who plays on your squad once every 5 games. Very underwhelming
I would just focus on finishing the AL then move to the NL.
Mussina is the real Prize of the AL imo. Frank is always extremely disappointing for me. That said, Gibson is a fun card that won't be useful very long
I still Randy is a very worthy reward considering how often people have asked to have him in the game. I do get that he only pitches every 5 games but that's only Online.
Also, the team, division and league collection rewards will definitely help you finish a larger collection if there ever is one.
Utley is my favorite collection card (completed) and can’t wait for his 99 as this Prime is already amazing for me. Then, Randy is good but will eventually get seen too much. Never hit much with Frank but he’s been ok so far though probably just because he’s a 99 compared to less than stud pitchers out there so far. Clemente has been great offline and starting to come around online but still don’t have his swing down or it’s just a little slow for me.
Gibson has just not been someone I could get going with though others have said they like him. He actually has reverse splits but more than anything I like Trout/Acuna/Clemente better in the OF. Trout to me is still the best hitter in the game and I live in ATL and love Acuna so he’s not coming out yet.
Generally it is a good idea to do one complete league before the other, but you may have found a good exception. Gibson is amazing. I just finished the NL on Sunday and have an outfield of Gibson, Acuna, and Clemente. Not planning on moving any of them anytime soon.
