Looks like we have a new best reliever in the game. Only disappointing part is I was hoping for a starter.

Events would be a lot more fun if people just played the game and didn’t beg for stats.
I fall into this category and I just got to Mantle a couple days ago. I’ve played 3-4 hours a day since release. I completed every program, did quite a few showdowns. I sold every item I possibly could. I didn’t bother with flipping, I’d rather be playing the game so it can be done in time.
I’ve only done it for the last few games but been running a platoon of Nolan Jones and Evan White.
Pros: both have terrific defense. White has 80 speed. Both hit as well as any other 1B I’ve used when they have the platoon advantage
Cons: taking up 2 roster spots for one position can be annoying and limit you later in the game

Good stuff Gentlemen. Anyone have an in depth review of McCovey and Miggy?
I’ve used McCovey a decent amount. Mashes righties, not terrible against lefties. His defense can be a liability at times. I’ve had him miss balls that I feel like Nolan Jones or Evan White would have fielded.
Go straight for Mike Trout with all the stubs you earn ( for live series collections) a lot of people make the mistake of buying every card besides the top 5 or so most expensive but it's way quicker to buy from the top down.. (most important)
Can you elaborate on why this is the right way? This was my first year playing enough to worry about the collections and not knowing any better, I went about it the opposite way.
@rsetzer13 said in Why So Many Desperate Players?:
Just played a guy with WS banner, Prestige Level 49 who just played the most desperate way possible -- all lefty pitchers, quick pitching, slide stepping, running at every opportunity -- all for an event win.
The lefty pitcher thing has been talked about enough on here, but they’re common players, not a big deal.
Quick pitching is not a thing.
Slide stepping is not an advantage to the pitcher. It just makes their pitching way more erratic.
Running can be stopped.
If you don’t want any user input involved in the game there are plenty of modes where you play the CPU. There are plenty of annoying things people do on this game, but this guy doesn’t sound like much of a problem.
As a diehard baseball/fantasy baseball fan I love to follow prospects. These cards are really cool to me and I don’t understand why people get so upset over cards they don’t have to use.
If we apply the “he’s not better than Mike Trout” logic then almost every card in the history of the game would be below Trout’s 95.

It is the only way to have a NMS team in the game. You have to do the card flipping.
Having spent no time flipping and no money on this game I can say with confidence that this statement is unequivocally false.
I don’t understand why you listed Jose Ramirez as SS. His primary is 3B but he’s able to play 1B, 2B, SS, LF. For me, J-Ram is most valuable at 2B. None of the other 2B can match his power with 102 vision and switch hitting ability.. I would list Ramirez as the #1 2B.

As a Cubs fan, I'm definitely going Wood to oust Felix from my rotation. Who would be better between Smoltz and Orel to replace Hal whom I struggle with.
It pains me to say as a Mariners fan but I haven’t been very good with Felix. Think he’s losing his spot for me as well.
Are you on the harder levels? I just struck out a guy 22 times with Felix.
Yeah, just about all of his innings have been between 700-900 on RS
This was me. It’s surprising how quickly the stubs add up when you’re not worried about them. I’ve been able to buy Banks, Dibble, Britton, and soon to buy Chapman to solidify my roster. Go for the World Series man that’s why we get all these cards, to use them!
