New cards: bargains?

PostMon Aug 01, 2022 7:07 pm

Anyone see some bargains in the new cards?

Just noticed the Doug Mirabelli card at $1.79 with a 5L, a rich man's John Wockenfuss, better D. Sorta like the Al Spalding card for $8.93 and *9, but the WP at 17 are a yikes. The new Trout card at $9.51 is interesting, but he didn't take many walks that year. Mmm...

I haven't had time to analyze the starting-caliber cards but there are lots of good prices amongst the bench guys.

why don't we get an exclusive list of new added players instead of having them inserted in the spreadsheet...

Digging a bit deeper, Eric Chavez is the highlight for me. Nomar looks viable. Adames and Mike Benjamin look viable in platoons.

Not a bargain, but just ran the 1999 Garciaparra through Diamonddope. I've used Appling at SS in the past as a balance vs LHP in Dunn/Sportsman parks with a good defensive 2b and lots of LH power. Put this Garciaparra card in that slot; 3 Natural HRs on against LHP.........

problem with Adames is his negative clutch. its -16 which brings his chances down from a respectable 41 all the way to 29. that's a big ouch! he has 11 GDP chances against RHP's so I guess he could bat 2nd? not bad power for cheap platoon.

In a Polo '41 park at $80M, no DH, I'm going to try out some of the new cards -- Garciaparra, Stargell, E. Chavez, Mirabelli, Benjamin, Wolters (defensive sub).

On the 5R Adames, primarily I don't like the fact is HR power is actually better against lefties if you use him in a platoon. Clutch is remotely a secondary concern.
