    Live Series - he probably gets a boost to a high diamond today? Cashed my extra one out for 30,000 on Monday and ready to feel stupid.

    Live one. He went from like 9k to 30+k when I logged off last night. Roster update should bump him up

    He’s currently right around 44k right now. My first good investment coming up.

    I bagged Trout earlier this week and then all the Live Players jumped up in rate even more. Sold Trout will buy the other live players and then collect trout at the end of diamond for the non sell

    Still kicking myself for "collecting" guys when I had no shot at completing the collections. It was pointless. I just locked them in and now can't selling. I probably have 300k just locked in and can't use them and can't sell them.

    Hoping to get my work monitors setup next weekend which will mean I can take my current monitor downstairs to play MLB on.

    Haven’t played in like a week, I think I got burnt out. Hoping having the monitor will revamp my interest.

    Maybe I missed this in the other responses since you posted this, but it looks like it's going to be a program (similar to POTM players - Belli, Didi, etc.) so the all timers should be free. That being said, for a 99 Ruth I have to assume it'll be a hell of a grind. Like worse than 99 Jackie. Either way I'm excited because his card was like 500k last year.

    edit: the SDS tweet

    Hopefully just a matter of playing some (maybe a lot :ohdear:) moments. I'd much rather do moments than try and come up with 500k stubs.

    Anyone who plays in the rain and then uses a 99 pitcher I’d like to kick square in the nuts as hard as I possibly can. I have no idea how someone can get enjoyment out of that. It’s like jerking off with a condom on.

    I'm overcast 100% of the time. Some parks have really bad glare so I do overcast to avoid that. Fuck rain though.

    As whiteboy said it’s free - don’t buy stubs for Ruth, you can’t buy him, just have to grind out the moments.

    If you have the stubs, the Gagne and Posada that are in the base round of the beach ball packs are like 25k on the market and both look amazing if you need a RP or Catcher. Not sure it's worth the 40k gamble for the rare cards though imo but the Nolan looks like the only rare one I would want.

    Statistically probably not, but 97/91 power and he's a switch hitter. The switch hitter part alone makes him nearly worth it to me.

    Yea that switch hitter is clutch. I may sell Torre and get Posada. I will say I miss Bench defensively. You could throw anything in the dirt you wanted and he was going to block it. Torre is solid but not automatic.

    So to get Ruth i have to beat cpu teams 39 times in moments? So 3 innings, some 9 innings? And that's the only way to get him? But I get Hoffman and Seaver along the way?

    Yeah to start. That’s just stage one. I’m guessing someone has a video on YouTube already but typically there are three stages for all the moments where you can exchange and/or complete some online milestones for some points as well.

    No you should. It's a 3 inning game vs every "all time" team (30) , then 6 inning games vs all time division and league teams (8), and then a 9 inning game vs the best overall. Someone already discovered (was the first to unlock) Ruth overnight so he's not still locked behind any other requirements.

    But it's possible they add more stuff down the line to help people unlock but not a guarantee.

    The 9 and 6 inning games are on Hall of Fame difficulty. I hate CPU games so I started with the 9 inning game last night to try and get the longer games out of the way. I won, but it was tough for sure. Will probably take a couple weeks to get there because I'd much rather play ranked seasons or events.

    I beat the Yankees and the MLB squad last night. Thome took Chapman deep in the 10th to beat MLB. Going to try to knock out a few today. The 3 innings aren't bad bc i can squeeze them in. Its just a lot of them.

    I assume these are against the computer? Whenever I have those challenges I try to just get like a 2-3 run lead early if possible then bunt lol more for the 6 or 9 inning ones.

    Yea vs the cpu. I got up 2-0 and the cpu wasn't hitting for shit so I was just throwing fastball after fastball. He got a man on and then pinch hit Dawson and he took a fastball deep to tie it. Thome bailed me out though.

    All moments add up to Ruth. I was saying most have stages with other ways to obtain points towards the goal. Doesn’t look like this one does at face value but maybe when you get to say, 50, they will allow some trade ins or tasks that could be accumulated online.

    I guess it’s one thing if you create content or if you’re 15, but this finally explained one of the ways that people get such high prestige.

    Is there a way to change your SP for events? It keeps picking Hal but he's not even #1 in my rotation.

    For the Ruth event? It will automatically pick your highest rated starter. No effects on stamina outside that game and you can’t bring any other starters in as relievers, so just throw four bums behind whoever you want to start.

    I take it you don’t get innings with the moment games? That’s gonna not sit well with me grinding out 90 and then 180 innings and none towards team affinity
