So I've bought a couple FotF cards so far, but how does everybody complete the Team Affinities so quick? Do you just play showdown after showdown? Curious to see if I need to just grind out showdowns left and right. If there is a quicker/easier route???

What's everyone have for their starting rotation? Bottom half of my rotation could use some work.
What is your rotation? That always helps when people include that type of info so we're not all just listing the same guys over and over you already have in there.
My rotation is:
97 Greinke (Just bought last night)

I collected Stanton like an idiot...otherwise I would do that. I’m going to give Hornsby a try and if I can’t get anything outta him I’m gonna look to go the center fielder route
oh, Get Robert then. Similar price, Robert is far superior. I took Hornsby out of the pack and wasn't impressed. Sold him and haven't looked back.
Doing that will give me speed galore. I’d throw Jackie back in the lineup in place of Hornsby and have Brock, Rollins, and Robert in the 90s speed plus sandberg at 80...speed kills lol
Going into the weekend with the huge bombshell content drop, I buy two beach ball packs...nada. Snagged Gagne and Lofton, who both have actually produced well for me. I really wanted Hornsby. Doing some of the mission and get rewarded a standard pack or two, open one. BOOM! Cody Bellinger, sold him and bought Hornsby while he was still affordable. First time since 17 The Show pulling a 90+ LS card.
I decided to work the program backwards.
I took on the HOF games first sincE I had more time over the weekend.
The games were fun and sometimes challenging. Newhouser gave me fits, it seemed like his fastball had some extra "giddy up" on them.
For those of you that have done the HOF challenges who were the toughest hitters you faced?
- Gary Carter - Gave me fits, actually tied up a game for the NL East when I missed my spot on a Wagner slider. Besides that he was always getting on.
- Vlad - everything he hit was hard.
> 3. The opposing starting pitcher - anyone of them- sometimes it seemed like the opposing pitcher was the other teams best hitter. I even had Newhouser hit a game winning single off Gagne in the NL Central game.
I have literally lost twice now because of pitcher ground rule doubles on a changeup that is an inch above the dirt...miraculous...
@D_e_m_I_s_E said in Is everybody hitting .300+:
No, I'm hitting like .200 in Ranked Seasons. I'm not kidding. I get by on my pitching.
Doesn't matter how good your pitching is if you have good internet. You will be throwing slow pitch softball to these top players with their "magic" internet.
You mean shiternet?

Has anyone completed the extreme moments using directional? I have always played directional...normally sit in the 500-700 range for RS...I feel confident playing on directional, but am curious if anyone has had luck with these moments? I haven't tried them yet.
If you go to "collections" and then go to "created player" at the end, you can lock in cards at every position and make a decent amount of stubs. At this stage, you've probably already have enough cards locked in you wouldn't even have to lock in any new ones
Yeah I've done all of those, and even collected the required number of FA as well. Starting to think I'm just going to have to grind out some 8th inning showdown and hope to get a nice pull or two out of the reward packs.
What's your Trout Collection look like? You'll be locking stuff in, but it sounds like you don't have much to sell off anyways. Quite a bit of Stubs for completing some of those collections.
I have 7 of 15 done on Trout collection. Never thought I'd even consider completing these collections but over time have put myself in position to so I think I'll keep it going.
@MathMan5072 said in Need some ideas...:
Have you emptied your inventory. I mean everything: common, bronze, silver, equipment, stadiums? You’d be surprised how much is sitting in there.
You could work on the topps now moments. Those cards should have decent value on Friday. At two cards per week, that’s at least 20k per set of moments.
I do have some catching up to do on Topps Now moments. I think Ill have like 7 of those to sell if I complete those tonight. I also have never really sold my bronzes, just silver and up so I will try selling the bronzes tonight.
I am two cards away from being able to get Mantle (DeGrom and Arenado). I have no stubs because I have purchased Trout, Cole, and Verlander in the last couple days. Got extremely lucky last night and pulled Scherzer out of a gold or above pack. Need ideas on how to raise 200k stubs quickly...about to resort to selling Luis Robert 99 overall to get closer, but after that I really don't have much to part with to get me there. IDEAS???
I put the free option Ryne Sandberg in for awhile and did well with him. But wanted so more pop and better defense which is why I bought Chapman. I just dont know if Chapman is getting it done. I struggle hitting with righties too, at least against righties so I was going to look into a switch hitter option at 3rd.
