Pre Order Diamonds, Is anyone not going to choose Kerry Wood???

10 days ago

I didnt see any other diamond worth having over a decent amount of time in the game? Most of them were at best a platoon player

I know there are still 10 left, maybe they are leaving the studs for the end???

I'm going back and forth between a SP and a C.  I'll wait to see what the attributes are for the cards before making my final decision.

If I were planning on keeping my pre order diamond (at this point I think I will probably sell right away), I would likely take one of the Catchers considering the lack of good depth with no really good ones being shown so far as being available right away.

I haven’t watched much of the streams, so I don’t know if they’ve shown any of the actual attributes for those cards. Going in blind, I’m thinking Lou Gehrig since I’m a Yankee fan. I know there will be other good first basemen early on, but I’d still love to use it before really OP 1st basemen come out. Who knows how difficult it will be to get a better Gehrig further down the line. Chipper Jones and Kerry Wood are close seconds for me. I may change my mind based on who I get in my pre-order and digital deluxe packs.

I was a dead no......to get the game like last year. Last year the babe and vlad sucked me in......this year Kerry Wood has be drawn in....plus a card i most certainly keep in my lineup ALL year long......the others not so much

I wouldn't waste a diamond pick on a pitcher but if i did, I'd probably lean more towards Bob Feller.

Joe Carter is where my heart is as a Jays fan 

Gwyn, Wood, and Thomas all have me intrested 

I will be keeping my pick as I am really going to collect the cards I want this year. Andrew Jones will be my 1st inning pick this I already know

Their are 10 left to show and no way I pick wood with that terrible control and BB/9 tbh

With how they have stated control is going to affect your secondary pitches, Wood seems like a huge risk.

I think you are overvaluing Kerry Wood.  After watching the stream, I think at least  half of those cards could be useful .  2B and C are dog crap this year (at least live series).  Posey would probably stay in my lineup for awhile.  Starting pitchers, to me, just aren't as valuable.  Especially when you're trying to fill out a lineup early in the year.

So....I don't see anyone saying they are going to take barry larkin.....is power really the only thing that matters in the game for hitters?

One of the reasons why I’m not choosing a SP is because of how frustrating it can become when they are not chosen after 4 games played. I want a card that I know for a fact that I’ll be able to use right away. One specific starter is just randomness when it comes to playing in DD.

Tom Seaver... Kerry Wood would be someone I'd get down the line

I am considering (at this point) taking a catcher. All live series catchers are golds and below. Posey would be a good first month or so catcher.

It also depends on the last 10 cards I suppose.

Can't see myself choosing a pitcher. Unless it's Oswalt because ASTROS. I'm leaning toward Kinsler or Posey since LS players are junk in those positions except Altuve which means he'll be hella expensive. I'm had a good experience with Frank Thomas so maybe him. Not too concerned bc we can pick these up throughout the year.

Where can I see a list of these diamonds?

Finley, Chipper, The Big Hurt-Tough choices out there.  I do wonder what they'll be worth in the market, at least initially?

Back in the day, I used to try and draft Kendall for my fantasy baseball team, so right now I'm leaning towards him for nostalgia's sake.

Power is king in real life baseball.

2nd base will be the weakest position right out of the gate this year again. Yes C has no LS diamonds, but the golds are still better than the 2nd basemen.  And the only diamond 2nd is Altuve and he will cost a ton and doesnt have a lot of power. So that Kinsler will probably be the top pick.  I am guessing.
