    I didn't know diamond level was a thing. Hornsby had himself a day in the 8 spot.

    Just finished the damn US map capturing all the territories, what a fucking pain in the ass. Took me 4 tries and a YouTube watch to get it done. First three times the PC went nuts and it was like one other team was on fucking roids which created a gigantic wall that was a never ending battle. So, now I have the entire map, I just need to beat every team. It’s fine though, sets me up for daily challenges and such.

    I was also able to get my second inning boss. I do not think I’m able to get the first inning boss not enough points out there.

    Hows he been? I thought about him because I could use some more speed but any time I have used that Chipper card he’s hit well

    Chipper mashes and I think he’s the right choice, but good god my defense is shit between him and 2nd inning Hanley

    Chipper absolutely is the better card, he fucking mashes. Shane gets on base at a pretty insane clip and has hit me quite a few homers as well.

    I have Shane in CF and Minosa in LF. Prince Fielder could probably adequately cover right field, those two cover so much ground. Also hoping when I get Shane up to 96 that uptick will help offensively.

    How do you make him go up to 96?

    I might end up taking Shane because I need a better lead off hitter.

    I picked Henderson with the XP over Kluber and Hal, which was the worst decision ever.

    If you go to programs tab I think the one at the bottom is Prestige or player prestige. It’s basically racking up stats using him online. I figured I would not want any other CF at this point. Same with Didi at short, this month you can get a nice Correa but I’m not replacing Didi anytime soon.

    Damn near broke a controller just now. By far the most frustrating game I've ever had.

    I k'd 5 times
    He k'd 17 times
    I had 4 hits
    He had 14 hits, including 6 HR
    I lost 9-0

    Everything he put a bat on found a hole or was a cheap Polo Grounds HR. 1 was legit, other 5 were a joke. Meanwhile I had multiple perfect times rockets right at someone. 450 bombs for outs to dead center.

    Whoo boy that sucked. Proud of myself for not just quitting in the 6th.

    I feel like I always have good pitching performances with Oswalt so I looked up the stats. As good as these are I’m pissed his record is somehow 3-2....

    50 IP
    72 K / 2 BB
    12.96 K/9
    0.90 ERA / 0.72 WHIP

    My bullpen is pretty meh, just a couple of diamonds, so I usually just risk it and keep Roy out there. Which is how I ended up with the 2 Ls. My other four starters only combine for 3 CGs themselves.

    As much as I don’t want to do it, I might grind out a March to October with the Padres to try and get the diamond level Tatis Jr, his gold card kills it so I’d hope the diamond is even better.

    Need a better lead off guy after Henderson was such a bust for me.

    Can you not buy Tatis diamond? I don't think I've seen it. Hanley mashes so I haven't looked in a while.

    Nope, it's a Face of The Franchise card. Have to unlock it through the "Team Affinity" stuff. Still not 100% thats what I will do, but considering it. I have over 100K stubs but didnt see much on the market place.

    I have theory on this for days because it scratches that itch for me. That said, what I read is that if there is the Memorial Day stub sale cards jack up insane almost immediately. Then they drop down to current levels if not lower in a few weeks. That said I have a Cole and possibly degrom I will unload.

    If anyone is interested in the market I’ll type My theory to show you all my disease.

    Also, I guess the thing to remember with the full collection is you’ll eventually have to get Trout which is like 200K stubs. Think he’s 300K+ right now.

    What's the Memorial Day sale? If they did like 50% more stubs or something I'd probably just buy enough to do all players and get the Biggio, Sheffield, and Mantle.

    I think someone said it was 1.8m stubs at one point. May be more or less now. I know Trout has gone up, not sure on others. Who else is active and crazy high? Cole for sure.

    I don’t know for sure but allegedly it’s a 50% thing or was in the past. That said we have to wait and see. I will say based off everything I read the reason I made so much profit today and the market is so high is because everyone is loading up. Ultimately that means, load up on your stubs if you want, for the sale, however hold off on making your purchases for a few weeks. Just jot down cost for Trout, Bellinger, Cole, Verlander, etc..... but do in tonight.

    Most of the super pricy guys are prospects or legends, so I’d imagine outside of like Cole, Trout, Scherzer type guys they’re all somewhat obtainable.

    The shitty thing is none of them would make my starting lineup. I guess 1-2 of the SP would but the position players aren't. Idk guess we'll see what the same is and then go from there.

    Yeah, that’s kind of my thing. Mantle is an awesome card obviously, but it’s one of those things where personally I’d rather just play the game. Plus I know I’ll never have Trout unless I somehow unlocked him in a pack (lol)

    When facing pitchers that throw 96-98, I hit well. Doesn't really matter the pitcher, even Kluber. Guys like Kopech and Hal that throw 102, I have no shot. The timing difference is huge, especially when they have an 80 mph change up. Its a complete guess for me.

    And guy I just faced had a great lineup.

    Lofton
    Gwynn
    Mantle
    Sheffield
    Reggie
    Chipper
    Biggio
    Moncada

    Hal pitching.

    I lost 3-2.
