It’s nice to see Rose down to reasonable values instead of the 15k I was seeing earlier. In the middle to end of last week I was killing it in Bronze tournaments. This week nothing with the same team. I’ll probably look at things again on Sat. Perhaps I need to pick up Rose or Raines finally.
I’ve held off playing the special edition cards until this week. I don’t think they are fun. They are a mix of fairly bad unlikely to be ever played and too good. The fact that every team has one of the top 3 SP, the top RF, arguably the top SS, and top tier players at all other positions bugs me. Certainly they will not stay as the best players forever but the fact that they instantly rendered the vast majority of even diamond players only useful to theme teams bugs me.
But I’m weak of spirit. I’ve allowed myself to play Cy Young, Enos Slaughter and Nomar (at 1b) for now. Nomar is high on my list of needs to be replaced. The other two I can justify by saying I get one pitcher and one position player as a reward for all those missions but Nomar is purely because I’m tired of Dan McGann underperforming.
