Is the Twitter question posted "who's been at third for you...." a clue that Schmidt's coming this week? 

9/21/2019 9:34PM PDT

I hope so

I think someone hit it on the head with him being the Sig Team reward.

It's either him or Eddie Mathews. And considering we just got a brave 3B, I'm thinking it might be Schmidt

9/22/2019 8:43AM PDT

3 spots left, I’m assuming they’ll all be 99’s

if the main reward is in fact Schmidt then I’m guessing we see 1 SP (my guess would be CY Johnson or Mathewson) 

and then prob someone else like Vlad maybe (hopefully) 

9/22/2019 9:05AM PDT

I am going to get Schmidt either way but I just think for many he would be a let down as a sig team reward. That feels like Babe or Teddy territory. Schmidt seems like an 8th inning reward type. 
 

I don't see the other rewards being 99. I think that guys like Barry Larkin, Joe Carter, Paul Konerko...

speaking of Joe Carter why is Harold Baines and Edgar 'Martinez in the HOF and Joe Carter is not?

I was thinking the same thing and then they dropped a 95. Hopefully there’s not another 98 position player before they get into the big cards.

They already said that the final 2 rewards will be 99 I  addition to the collection reward.

When did they state that?

9/22/2019 10:15AM PDT

Can’t wait to get Schmidt!!! Been stuck with Brooks at 3rd and been waiting for someone who has diamond defense and can swing the bat.

9/22/2019 10:19AM PDT

I hope he is one of the 2 released before the main guy. Not that I don't think Schmidt will be an awesome card but not for playing 90 or so 3 inning games. That would be as disappointing as it being Musial. I'm hoping for a Ruth, Pujols, Williams kind of reward. Just my opinion.

Ruth and Williams will have amazing hitting stats, but unless they have secondaries of 1st base, are they even useable with Gwynn, Mays, and other options out there? Williams and Ruth in outfields would lead to more line drives landing tho...Schmidt and Pujols really seem like the best options to me since they're infielders - Pujols at 1st and deserves at least a gold fielding badge, Schmidts getting a diamond d.

Ruth and Williams would be pretty boring honestly. Without 1B secondary they’ll be bench bats at best for a lot of people. Schmidt should be the best third baseman in the game and will actually start on many people’s teams.

9/22/2019 11:50AM PDT

It would be cool to get both Schmidt and Steve Carlton. Those were my 2 favorite non Dodger players growing up...

I actually think people look forward to this card. Really good power plus really good defense like Brooks Robinson. The one thing I’ll say about his card is that there won’t be a lot of speed and that much vision. 

9/22/2019 11:58AM PDT

Ichiro, Bench, and Schmidt would be amazing as the final 3 rewards.

ButI think Ruth and William's SHOULD have maxed out hitting..... so they will be real tempting to put in my lineup

Edgar Martinez:

65.5 career fWAR

147 career wRC+

.933 career OPS

Harold Baines:

38.4 career fWAR

119 career wRC+

.820 career OPS

Joe Carter:

17.1 career fWAR

102 career wRC+

.771 career OPS

To clarify, I don’t think baines should be in the HoF either, but joe carter REALLY should not be in the HoF.

But bbn I think rith and William's might have maxed out hitting. Well should.. so they will be real tempting to put in my lineup

I’m fine with them having maxed out hitting as long as they have noticeably bad defense. With the way they’ve done SS cards this year, I think they’ll make it so people have to choose between great offense or lots of slowness and errors in the outfield. That’s the only way to keep everybody from using them. 

9/22/2019 12:16PM PDT

I'm still hanging on to the fact the SS team reward will be Babe just because they referenced that reward as "the big guy". 

I really think everyone is getting a free Ruth this year...

Schmidt was actually pretty fast for a third baseman. Came up as a shortstop. Also a tremendous base runner in his day. He should be faster than Chipper for example if SSD does it right.

Have you ever seen Joe Carter play. Dude played like a HOF. I think he belongs if these dudes belong off the top of my head:

Harold Baines, Kirby Puckett,Tim Raines, Orlando Cepeda, Tony Perez, Enos Slaughter, Earl Combs. Joe Carter is better or comparable to each of these guys.
