I love how whatever price I pay for a card it immediately drops 20% in price as soon as I drive it off the lot.

People ruin events. Period.
Amen. The people who gripe about dashboarding and boosting are the same ones who throw you nothing but ankle-high sliders while telling you to EaRn YoUR StAtS LiKe A rEaL mAn.
They expect you to let their dingers land but won't throw you a pitch, then when you strike out (because you can't earn the stats working walks) it's SeE I aM a BeTtEr PlAyEr NoT mY fAuLt YoU hAvE No PlAtE DiScIpLiNe.
It's always the other guy that's the A-hole. STFU and look in the mirror. This is why having to do online only for certain missions stinks
One thing I have learned playing the CPU on All-Star for other player missions is you cannot under any circumstances blow a lead late, or you will end up in extra inning hell. Played the Orioles in the Ruth mission, Brooks Robinson pinch hit HR off a hanging changeup in the bottom of the 3rd. They robbed a Killebrew HR in the 7th. Finally won it in the 10th.
Maybe I should stop grinding and play my A-team in RS for a while.
Can't wait to spam people with Uncle Charlie before busting a high 96 up and in on you.

Will these cards be sellable? I will do the conquest because I always do the non-extreme conquest but I just want to buy Bert Blyleven.
Yeah Cobb is hitting .568 with over 12 hrs in the past week and a half I've had him. Pleasantly surprised. I moved him to left so I could try Walker, but Musial might sub back in.
Side note: There are too many good outfielders to play with. For the longest time I was completely happy with the Betts LS, J.D. Martinez awards and Acuna L.S. as my outfield. They were all over 60 home runs. Then once I grinded out Mantle I felt like I had to give him a try.
It's kind of why I think there is too much content out there....only so many spots and innings you can play. I'd be perfectly fine with 2 new players a week. Ex topps now, Moment and inning program on different weeks.
About too much content: I will say that no two teams I face in ranked have even remotely the same lineup.
Dashboarding - here we go again. Discussed ad nauseum, but hey, it's a slow Tuesday at work.
I was thinking about how to "prevent" dashboarding or reduce how many times it happens.
The solution is quite simple (for me anyways) but may be controversial to many others. I propose a 2 step solution that looks something like this.....
The person who dashboards cannot get back into playing an online game (be it event, BR or RS) until point 2 is completed, and that is
The team of the person who dashboarded becomes controlled by the CPU one difficulty lower than the game was being played....so HoF becomes All-Star, All-Star becomes veteran and continues until the end OR the player who is left accepts the "forfeit" in the QUIT menu.
This would really slow down the dashboarders for many reasons. First, they are locked out and if they do it in the 1st or 2nd inning and they play a guy who rakes, it could be a nice 30 - 45 minute timeout for them. Second, and the most important part, their goal of preventing you from getting your grinding stats for prestige (lets face it, dashboarding only affects your prestiging stats) not only is defeated, but you may end up giving your opponent WAY more stats than he would have gotten had you simply let that HR land and then quit the game.
Now, there is a bad side. The worst I can see if a legit lost of connexion issue. People who get a freak power issue that causes a flash and they lose connexion, someone who loses their internet connexion, they would be negatively affected. I don't know about everyone else, but all the times someone has dashboarded against me has been during a HR or a hit.
There are other negative sides to such a solution, and those involed one party cheating to force a disconnect. There are multiple methods which won't be mentionned here but most people know what they are.
I dunno, I feel like there should be a penalty to dashboarding other than taking a L and there should be compensation to the person who was dashboarded on, but I don't know if my solution idea would even be a good one.
If we're going to have SDS code a bunch of extra stuff into the game can they start with fixing baserunning first?
Boy am I glad I locked in this card.
0-10 with a 19.74 era in 10 Event games.
Well worth the 90K.
Don't sweat it. You're trying for strikeouts to prestige him, so you're pitching different than RS.
