August Daily Moments Program Includes McCutchen, Evolution Nathan and Turner

Coming off the Kung Fu Panda month of Daily Moments, there is one big structural change this month to the August Daily Moments program. You will have three days to complete a daily moment rather than just 24 hours. In other words, the dailies will now stack for three days so you can catch up if you fell behind at some point. This could be a rather important change because the end-of-the-month pack rewards tend to be rather solid for this monthly program. That remains the same this month with a 2021 Home Run Derby pack and 2021 All-Star pack at the end of the program. Otherwise, the program is the same with you getting two evolution players and one high-end diamond, in this case a Signature Series Andrew McCutchen.

Objectives

The points system for the August Daily Moments program can look a little odd because you’re chasing certain checkpoints that don’t seem attainable on the first of the month. As of now, there are more points than days in the month. However, you need to realize sometimes a daily mission will be worth two points rather than one, which is why there are more than 30 points in the program. Regardless, you should be able to snag all the cards by logging in and doing the daily mission a majority of the time.

Bottom Line

As expected as we get deeper into the season, this is the best month yet for the Daily Moments program. With the August Daily Moments program, we get a fan favorite classic card in Signature Series Andrew McCutchen, plus an always-dangerous Signature Series Justin Turner card. Prime Joe Nathan also looks very good with a power slider and mid-90s sinker to go with a 12-6 curve and a low-80s changeup. All in all, I think all three cards will be usable, and with dailies now being up for three days, the Home Run Derby and All-Star packs are more attainable as well.
