He was pretty fantastic in coming in and striking out Belanger with the bases loaded. Didn’t last, I guess.
Not for Topps Now Moments
Also thanks for confirming. That pick is tough early on. I really need a 3B, but I just can't justify using the pick on Brooks when Morgan, Gwynn and Snider are out there. I think I'll go with Morgan, though.
I know you guys hate knuckleballers, but Tim Wakefield is my all-time favorite. He could get a 1992 Postseason card with the Pirates that would be a gold. Could also get a Breakout 1995 card with the Red Sox, also likely a low gold.
I don't know if he's underrated, as he's an MVP, but I never see his name mentioned. George Foster would be pretty cool to see the game. Don Baylor, too.
I took Cy Young and kept him, but I liked to get all the Red Sox cards, anyway
He's never been in the game, but I'd love to see it!
I don't mind. It's kind of like The Show 17, when everyone had Vida Blue fairly early on, and he was an end-game pitcher.
Yes, pitchers count
I like these ideas. I do applaud them for introducing new maps all the time.
Other than him not being in the game yet, there's no reason to believe he won't appear later.
I know 15 was this way. Not sure about 14.
Yep. Just people looking for excuses for why they lost.
My use has been only against CPU, but I love Reyes. Perfect leadoff hitter. Lots of singles with occasional doubles. Good defense, great speed and a switch hitter. With the way the game works this year, he's pretty ideal.
Can't say too much about Lester. I haven't had him picked too much yet. Still has that big curveball, cutter, sinker.
I have Lester (MTO and innings only) and Reyes (collecting and innings only). Not sure who to go after next. Thinking about Detroit or Giants. Cubs? Padres?
The sliders thing was patched a week or more ago. It doesn't work anymore.
Diamond Posey has been 'good enough' for me. I don't love him, but don't know who to replace him with, or if it's even worth replacing at this point.
I only need one more diamond bat skin to finish that last Beginner collection, so I may do that anyway.
I miss the grind. Not the 18 grind, but the 16 and 17 grinds. I was starting to get bored with playing vs. CPU, so I started messing around with Conquest, and I'm finding that drive to play again. Maybe that'll go away once I finish the mountain peaks map (I finished the classic map and Jackie Robinson map today).
Perhaps I've hit a bit of a lull until the 2nd Inning program comes out, and I'll get excited again.
That’s the way I interpret it
