Streamers revealed the subsequent batch of Finest cards for the Astros, Indians, Cardinals, Padres and Diamondbacks all through the final two days. The cards appear superior, as do most of the Finest cards, but there are nonetheless clear tiers to these.
To me, the initial tier incorporates the Flaherty and Marte cards. The Flaherty has his usual good pitch mix to go along with some high quality speed differentials. I assume this card can go into quite a few rotations if you obtain it. The Marte card is my favored from this set since it has the usual positional flexibility, and it is just a monster all-about hitting card to place into CF. It is also often good to be a switch hitter. It is not entirely helpless on defense either, so all in all a excellent card.
I would place the Tatis Jr. and Lindor cards in the subsequent tier. Neither one particular is an incredible card as they each have clear weaknesses. Tatis Jr. has just so-so operating and defense stats, and Lindor’s splits against lefties are not something unique. Nonetheless, they’re each extremely well known players and cards who slide in at SS.
In the final tier is the Yordan Alvarez. The hitting stats are excellent, of course, but the defense is soft and there’s just a lot of high quality competitors in the corner outfield spots. There have been a ton of excellent possibilities to go with for the Astros, so it shows how significantly respect the fans who voted have for Alvarez to give him the nod right here.
