I have to take Maddux, even if he is underwhelming. I may buy Glavine back, So I'll have Maddux, Smoltz and Glavine, finally.
And I'll probably get pounded in every start by each of them, but I'll have the trio, so it doesn't matter I guess.
Finally unlocked Acuna, along with Rivera. And my buy order for Al Leiter went through, so I can use him now. Unlocked Prince Fielder as well, and hit 300k XP. Lastly, I can now sell 15 prospects from the USA map since I don't need them now.
Maybe now I can play an RS game after all this grinding. Just sharing this here because shockingly this doesn't impress anyone in my day-to-day life.
My final Angels order went through, unlocked Chipper last night. Now I've only used him on veteran on the Kraken map, but it is so fun to finally use Chipper. Soriano isn't half bad either.
This is the first endgame Chipper I've used since 18. 19 he was a BR reward, 20 he was a WS reward so it was hard to obtain him. Man what a swing he has.
Not a big deal to most, certainly not to those here in the house, but I finally got the prestige Chipper. I needed 2 runs, played some event games and Chipper went yard twice.
Great feeling seeing him unlocked as a reward, better than Trout!
I reached 200 stars last night, got the two HL packs. In the Vida Blue HL pack I seen that lovely blue card show up. I figured it was Vida, but seen the animation for a 90+ LS SP.
Still worried I was gonna get Bieibered, I pressed X and Verlander shows up! I didn't know he was going for about the same as Trout. Oddly it was hitting a HR of Verlander in the Rendon moments that got me to 200.
Bought Cobb, guess I'll take Pudge at 300, give him a try. Sorry for the novel, but shocked I pulled a good card for a change, been awhile.
Didn't get to the series, but finally won a playoff series, 2 to be exact! Not many had the Braves doing much against the Dodgers, so taking it 7 games was a hell of a fight. Took 10 years of my life, that series.
Congrats to the Dodgers as well, hope you guys finally get your ring. Alex needs to resign Ozuna for 3 years and add a SP or two.
Seems like I hardly play offline anymore, only at the start of an Inning or when a new conquest map drops. That said offline prestige would be very nice. Maybe make something like 90 hits vs the CPU on All Star difficulty or higher, so that way it isn't just a repeat of 18.
I would be nice to have both options though.
I hope next year we can save our event lineups. I never go on long runs, seems like settin1g the lineup takes longer than my event run.
"George likes his chicken spicy."
In his autobiography, Lou Brock, recalling how he asked a young man he thought was a clubhouse aide for a Coke before the 1967 All-Star Game: "He hesitated for a moment but then went and got the Coke and said, 'You're Lou Brock, aren't you? Pleased to meet you. I'm Tom Seaver."
RIP Lou and Tom.
Are the prospect cards on the USA map repeatable? I did the map once as I thought you could only get them once.
I've been playing less this year, but the Braves WS run has got me playing more again. Still, I find myself drifting more towards Metroid Dread lately.
I can see a 10th Inning Program that doesn't expire and has each of the previous boss packs in it. SDS has done that the last two years anyway.
I just hit 400k last night. I wonder If I do the WC conquest map tonight if that would put me near 500k?
I am hooked on Destroy All Humans on the Switch (Lite). That said I did the RIB conquest map twice last night, It really doesn't take that long. I might finally get Justice to P5 playing this map.
My Jhonathan Diaz order just went through, I should now be able to get Chipper! I was order number 187, glad I got in somewhat early as it now well above 1000 orders.
That is true, I had some TA packs to open but didn't really care what I got. But I'll take Chipper for the tradeoff.
I'm waiting on the same guy. There was about 7000 people ahead of me when I put my order in, hoping to have the card by Sunday.
I know this probably isn't news to most here, but I hadn't checked the market for LS cards in quite some time. Trout for a 100k? Sign me up. I sold Brett and Kemp, and along with the stubs I had was able to almost finish the Chipper collection.
I would have Chipper but I'm waiting for my Jake Petricka order to go through. Might be a bit, there were like 7000 orders ahead of me. Wish I had put an order in for him earlier. Maybe by the weekend I finally have Chipper.
