I absolutely feast with the 87 chipper.  I’ve been waiting on the SS all year.  Market on him was moving way too slow as not many have made World Series.  So I decided to go into panic mode and sell off most my cards that I didn’t use.  Did a stupid thing and bought him for 900K.  Yes I got chipper but now I’m stub poor.  I’m so nervous right now to even put him in my lineup because if he doesn’t perform all my stubs went poof and any other new cards I won’t be able to purchase.  I just don’t know what to do now.  Sick to my stomach about spending my whole bank roll on one player.  I might try to put him in my grind lineup to see how he does because if I go into RS and he absolutely tanks I don’t know what I’ll do.

Dude its game - deep breaths lol Im sure he'll rake 

9/20/2019 8:56AM PDT

List him for 950k and count your losses. I mean 1300 people made it last year. And last time I check I think we were still under 15. He’s going to be expensive. But not that expensive. Maybe 300k when you start seeing people make it on a larger scale. Think of it this way, if you wait two weeks, you will have saved over 500k. In a few weeks you’ll be singing the blues man. Sell him.

Talk to your doctor about Xanax or something... there's no reason to be this anxious over something so trivial

9/20/2019 8:57AM PDT

If he doesn't work for you, you can always sell him at a small loss but he'll do fine for you. Just don't think about the price you paid every AB and you'll be OK.

I think you should QS him and use the 5K to buy one headliner pack when they drop this afternoon

Ya you are probably right man.  Not sure what I was thinking.  Just saw how slow the market on him was moving.

I’m already on  Xanax thanks

9/20/2019 9:01AM PDT

But..... wouldn't it be ideal to put him in the lineup now? If you are scared he won't perform, wouldn't it be better to know now when you can sell for a lot? 

9/20/2019 9:06AM PDT

Are you being serious?

Truthfully, as much as Id love to get Chipper. Theres is no way Id spend that much of my life trying for World Series (even though I know Id never get past WC (if I even made it there, I have once this year, but my games are just about always predetermined and thats towards my opponents who are always worse them myself), nor would I waste 300k for a single player, when I could get 2-3 99s for that much. Some cards are just a waste going after, and sadly this year hes one of them.

I have a terrible sense of humor (also have something that kind of tinkers with my understand of things), so if I may, I apologize for my misunderstanding of your joke.

Seeking damages for emotional trauma due to spending online video game currency on a player and then being too terrified to use said player

Bro just relax lol. Ranks seasons just started last week. Not alot of ppl gonna make it to WS so fast. Everyone is beating each other up to get to WS. Once all the top players make it, it waters down the comp and more will be able to get him. So just sell him now and buy later. He doesnt look end game to me. So let SDS take their 10% now and buy him cheaper later. Or grind to get him later in the season

Whatever you do, don't think about how increased power actually hurts this card. The 87 had the perfect ratio of contact to power for the meta, allows for bloops to fall in while also giving you the occassional HR. The 99 is just a lineout machine.

Like I said: DON'T THINK ABOUT IT!

People like you baffle me. You just pissed away almost a million stubs for one player that in a few more weeks will close a quarter of that. Your no doubt a teenager so don’t expect you to understand how foolish this decision was.

He’s right, I personally have anxiety myself and wish I’d talked to my doctor long before I actually did. I felt ashamed and thought I could manage on my own. It was due to a chemical imbalance in my brain, it’s no different than any other disease and just because it’s not one that people can see doesn’t mean that it’s any less real. My doctor also prescribed me Xanax. I know people like to joke and say “chill out, take a Xanax” but for those of us that really do suffer from panic attacks it is really a medicine that can give you your life back, at least it did for me. So take this guys advice, and don’t wait, speak to your doctor about it.
