    Halfway through the moments. And I got enough postseason guys from the free packs last night for the collection. But what about the mission? Whats the best way to do those? Just load DD team with the postseason cards and play ranked games?

    On the ranked season page on the bottom right is extended play. Play vs cpu. Play in coors or a minor league stadium if possible. Load your team up and just track your progress. Bunt or swing at any pitch when you get your goal. Should only take you one game. Also using guys who pitch from stretch saves time. If you don’t have a quick delivery guy just bean the first batter every inning or IBB.

    edit I can’t hit rookie anymore, I prefer vet. All star is honestly ideal for me but you have to really try when you pitch, which is sucks. Lower level you just press buttons and get in the zone and you k 2/3 batters inning.

    Thanks for this. Did this and hit every mission but one, 20 k's. But between the missions, collections, and moments I've done, I already have 100 and unlocked Seager. Any point in finishing the last mission for 6 points? I got 15 in the last game, just need 5, but don't want to waste the time.

    And that wasn't bad at all. Probably took 2 hours total. Maybe 2.5 hours. All if then are easy, just time consuming. Only pain in the ass is the 8 xbh games.

    There is no point in finishing if you completed the 100 total. Now keep in mind most people complete these in the conquest maps. Nice part about that is it’s a 3 inning game. So once you complete the missions most people just use it for daily objectives and get the quick points. Long story short if you set it up right, do the moments for players and complete the conquest you’ll easily get 300 for an inning boss if you like any of them.

    Did the stuff I did for Seager count toward Griffey?

    And do the cpu extended play games count toward prestige players?

    I’ll have to check later but if you go into the inning program off the main screen go under collections and see if you can collect Seager towards Griffey in the 10th inning. Otherwise any XP you accumulate counts towards the inning as well. The only items that count towards prestige are online against another person but not casual games like if we had a TMB league.

    Got up to 743 in ranked and I am just hitting my ass off. Ultimately just means I'm about to go on a 6 game skid. Wish I had more time to play today.

    Checked and I'm only at 19 stars lol. Definitely not getting Griffey if I don't buy him. Honestly not sure he'd make my lineup though. 99 Cobb, 99 Arozarena, and 99 Stanton are locked in. That World Series collection is insane. Definitely worth the 2 hours to do it. Arozarena himself is worth it. His hitting numbers are silly. I'll take him over Trout or Mantle.

    Blood diamond Greg Maddux will make you want to break a controller.

    Fastball - 95 mph
    Cutter - 91 mph
    Sinker - 88 mph
    Curve - 82 mph
    Changeup - 75 mph

    Between movement and speed differentials, I had no shot. Time it right, but under it. Get PCI close but way early/late.

    I've been trying to prestige maddux for what feels like months. I got to the innings a few weeks ago but am still at something like 60 out of the 90+ K's needed. I may never get there.

    Is he eligible for the current event? I was able to prestige Mo through that way. I put in 58 overall pitchers in every other slot to bring my team overall down to 90 overall while having the best lineup I could put together and just used Mo over and over and over. I didn't care that he was on 0 energy. I think I'm 6-1 right now in the event and got him prestiged bc I needed innings.

    I am 9 innings away from Maddux. Got bloody Jose today and first AB homer with him. I think he has my favorite swing.

    Not sure why but I seem to square everything up with Biggio. He's been my best online hitter despite having the worst hitting attributes in my lineup by far.

    So definitely grabbing the Finest Candelario card and throwing him at 1B. Far and away the worst hitting position I have. I had some luck with Mattingly, Thome and Bichete but don't love any of them.

    Also have seen the 99 Mays that is available. I don't really need the card, just curious how does one obtain it? Is it a complete all stage four thing?

    Finest is like team MVP right? Do they allow pitchers? Either Cole or DJ for the Yankees imo. Or maybe Voit.

    Yeah I guess that’s the gist my first year so not sure. I’ve also seen that if someone already has a high diamond they are less like to make them the finest. Not the case with Cruz so who knows.

    I don’t think it’s been announced yet. Rolls out Friday, if you have Stubbs you can buy 4-5 diamonds for 5-6 grand and that should work.

    I know it’s nuts I’m going to have a hard time replacing Harper, he just hits fucking bombs for a living, and I have like 3 “better” cards on my bench. But that Soto is far and away the best TA4 card I’ve seen released.

    I did read a random comment that all the TA4 guys will be able to be purchased. The thought was with Madden and NBA out no one wants to grind for shit anymore, people will move on. I will say I did complete all Team Affinity but I’m only interested in 3. Two are meh but Soto is the only one worth “grinding” for if I was at zero or only partially completed. Everything else you could buy a stage 3 for cheap, it’s easily as good and you’re not wasting the time.

    Content drop today was bonkers. Cannot wait to start unloading the cards I stocked up on for exchanges.

    dblplay1212 you can buy Soto. Assume price is nuts right now. Will check back later on how much it will cost to get him via exchanges.

    The new 2k looks amazing so I'll probably be playing way less The Show but I do really like the game. I could see myself getting into it and going after collections and all if I had more time.
