The content team over at San Diego Studios has released the Division Series Program. This program encapsulated the top players that played in the MLB divisional series.
In total, there are eight new cards that SDS released. Let’s take a look at the attributes of the top four cards and discuss their viability this late into the game.
One of the first cards that you get in the program is the 98 overall right fielder Joc Pederson from the Atlanta Braves. This card represents Joc Pederson’s three for three series he has as a pinch hitter for the Atlanta Braves. A nice addition for this card, compared to his live series cards, is they gave him 82 overall defense which means he will not be terrible in the outfield.
His hitting stats read 100 contact and 125 power against righties, with 93 contact and 95 power against lefties. The other advantage to this card is he has the Pinch Hitter quirk. This late into the season, a card that is not stellar on the defensive side, having that quirk makes him usable off the bench in competitive lineups.
Lance McCullers Jr.
One of the three starting pitchers in the program is 98 overall Lance McCullers from the Houston Astros. In two starts in the Division Series, McCullers record a 0.84 era. This card has one of the best pitching arsenals this late into the season. His four-pitch mix consists of sinker, slider, knuckle-curve, changeup, and cutter.
His per 9’s are also solid with 110 H/9 and 103 K/9. With these attributes, he becomes an option at any difficulty, as your opponent will have the smaller PCI. The only real negative to this card is that he lacks velocity. At this stage in the game, it seems like the meta is to have offspeed and throw over 100, which McCullers only gets to the mid 90’s.
The second to last card that you get in the program is 99 overall starting pitcher Logan Webb from the San Francisco Giants. If you watched the Division Series at all, Logan Webb was unhittable against the Dodgers. In his first postseason start, he threw over seven innings, had 10 strikeouts, and did not walk anyone.
Webb also has a five-pitch mix, his consists of sinker, changeup, slider, four-seam, and cutter. This card has all the necessary pitches to be extremely effective. He also has great per 9’s, with 117 H/9 and 114 K/9. This card, just like the McCullers card, just lacks the necessary velocity to be effective at the higher ranks. Could be a top arm for a Giants theme team.
The final card in the program is 99 overall center fielder Kike Hernandez from the Boston Red Sox. Hernandez was one of the hottest hitters in the Division Series. This card is based on his single-game record he tied for extra-base hits in a single game with four. One of the benefits to Hernandez is he can play every position on the field except first and catcher.
His hitting stats are phenomenal with 125 contact and 119 power against righties, with 119 contact and 111 power against lefties. Hernandez bats from the right side, so it is always nice to have a right-handed bat that can handle right-handed pitching. With the second base position lacking a ton of depth, Hernandez becomes a solid option.
While there are no game-breaking cards in this program, there are a couple of cards that could be used right away. Another great thing about this program is that it is completely free to do. There is no need to spend any stubs, just complete a few missions and moments and all of these cards can be yours.
Hopefully, the grind for the 8th inning program is going great. Make sure to check back into https://esportsallstar.com for all your esports news. Happy Grinding!
