    If it’s between just those 2. Definitely mantle.

    Blowout won’t be too great to start off, and mantle can help in every mode. Switch helps a lot too

    Depends some on the game modes you prefer, but switch hitters with double skills are usually best.  For you that’s Chipper and Mantle.

    I’d take chipper and yogi. Most will probably recommend mantle but catchers are hard to come by and yogi has good woh skills. Chipper is for sure but yeah mantle or yogi.

    Chipper and Yogi would be the ones I’d take. Keepers are awesome for the first few months of the game. HH is an end game skill set and I’d strongly advised against it.

    IMO…..HH skills are NOT just an end game skill. Very useful in ALL modes including WOH. No brainer to take Mantle. As far as C, ML has been very good for that spot. But hey, I’m a Silver slug, so don’t pay attention to me 😎 
    Just a former Silver team from the wrong side of the tracks, so what do I know? 🤷

    I’d take Trevor Hoffman, but that’s just me.

    HH/blowouts are terrible skills for keepers. Well, this assumes that you care about winning games/WoH. If not, carry on....

    How do you figure that?

    Agreed. I LOVE HH in ALL modes. But I apparently don’t know how to play this game

    Thoughts on the 700 posada as a keeper?
    switch hitting catcher with runners on and runners in scoring position

    Less than ideal. RISP is pretty bad

    Small sample size and Chipper > Mantle in WoH easily. Also, Chipper > Mantle in those close games late.

    Depending on the yankees team moment/gear, posada could be a fine keeper. A lot of Woh/Rally/Barrelhouse levels start with guys on. If the  yankee skill is woh, or first pitch, or late, posada could be a season-long mid-late round woh player as a switch hitter. Chipper (depending on bravaes gear), or appropriately skilled my legend is the closer, but having a reliable 7th level guy has value.

    I was going to leave it alone, but since you went there, context matters. Once you face tougher matchups(s/s only shows 761 games) the difference will be rather noticable. Against cake matchups, hh is fine. In tough matchups, he's not so hot. At all. Currently, 5.10 woh is level 7 in beta. If that continues, the guys who took Mantle(and cares about woh) will cry a pretty big river.

    I like rivers. Especially big rivers. Bring it on!

    I was also thinking that if a good portion of those 761 games were when keepers were overboosted (to 528 max or whatever it was) that would muddy the water a good bit. When his hit rating was above 500 vs. pitchers mostly under 300 stuff, Mantle would do just fine. However, now at 390 he may struggle to break the seal and activate the double boost.
