    Switched!
    There was confusion about Wilhelm potentially being switched to a reliever after the fact and I'm glad GLU took the initiative.

    They changed it from a guy with a stuff rating of 195 to a guy with 177?  That's a massive downgrade assuming that @DFBB is correct in that pitcher skills don't matter.

    Wow, I would have participated in a Cooperstown club this weekend for satchel. Expecting that other clown, I planned on using this weekend just to slowly cycle d6. This kind of sucks.. of course, it wouldn't matter if that stupid cooldown didn't exist

    Into the trash bin he will go if pull him. The days of pitchers being relevant are long gone 
    Wouldn't do that if I were you. While he may be useless at this point in the 19 version I believe @DFBB 's point was about hanging on to him as a keeper for the 20 version as you would need to take one pitcher anyway.

    Off topic, but since we’re discussing ATGs, is this the last weekend of Yogi being apart of the weekend discount? I was lucky enough to pull him today and was wondering if I need to try to get him leveled this weekend, or if I can build up LXP again this week and cap him next weekend.

    I expect next weekend to be his last hurrah.

    I never even leveled my 550 keeper degrom from 18...and it had 0 effect on my 19 season.

    Pitchers are a waste of resources 
    Fun? This game is pretty limited. What else you going to spend resources on? I'd certainly rather waste resources on an ATG pitcher than someone like Hornsby.
    Would you be saying that if your Custom DFBB Glu created player wasn't parked at 2B? I think Hornsby is a Beast. Him and Yogi are my keepers atm.

    IMO it's his vsLHP skill that's limiting his value as there are a lot more RHPs than LHPs.

    i agree, i think rajah and yogi may be the top 2 for next year. have a woh finisher from each side of the plate for the early part of the year. i do believe in the men on base skill even if no one is on base to start, while not as good as an always on skill, they can finish pretty effectively.

    I only care about positions as it relates to CvC. As is, I still need a 2b for CVC. As has been mentioned, the 'vs lhp' skill isn't ideal.

    Pitchers are more important in higher tiers. It's late January and my pitcher keeper(Gibson) has been my best Sp all year whereas my keeper bats have been discarded for months.

    My best pitcher is also my keeper from last year.  As the game wore on, I had tons of bxp, and it was easy enough to level him.  I haven't wanted to spend LXP on a pitcher this year, so I leveled three 470 primes (sig Verlander, sig Cole and Mikolas) and a 490 prime (Syndergaard).  That results in my keeper still being my highest ranked pitcher.
