Alfaro or Garver

Who ya got?

One of them will become my primary catcher.  They're awfully similar - both righties, both have Late Innings skill.  Garver's got a little more power and Alfaro's hit rating is a little higher.

The primary difference is that where Alfaro has a vRHP skill, Garver has HH.

    RHP is a very valuable skill but in the current economy of the game I’d probably still take the extra 10 points of overall rating on Garver.

    Garver.  Higher power=better for SF and TB.  HH is my personal favorite skill.  I even like it for a WOH closer.

    Garver I think. But they both suck tbh. Maybe Alfaro for the bench of Woh as an autoplay. But we have stat bonus and Alfaro is d10 and 8/8 skills and not hitting even .500. so the dude sucks balls. Garver hitting about .30 higher.

    How is either the best bxp catcher in the game? D'arnaud is still an absolute monster.

    You would be thoroughly unimpressed with the rest of my roster, then.

    @RodFarva nah man I would never tell anyone their roster sucks. But for sure these 2 catchers aren't great. D'arnaud is by far the best bxp catcher still even at 350 overall. That's the only point I was making.

    You have to take into account the game modes that you prefer.  350 d'Arnaud is money if you play a ton of BGs, or are focused on CVC.  The blowout skill is awesome for those, but nerfs him mightily for WOH.

    Both have the same, or better, hit/power, and skills that are more useful across multiple game modes.

    FWIW, I have D’Arnaud (only leveled to P10) and I pulled Garver.  I will likely utilize the 60% (if I can find a dot 30 club) to level Garver, but still finish leveling D’Arnaud, so I have a good one for all modes — between the 2 of them.

    If I had to choose, I would take Garver because I value WoH over other modes and I’ve been doing fine with P10 D’Arnaud for other modes, so D10 Garver should be just fine as well.
