  1. Trout is a no brainer obviously... only DeGrom I don’t agree. Don’t get me wrong he’s an amazing pitcher but I don’t think he’s a 99.

    there should only be 1 or 2 99's IMO, either 1 99, to rule them all... or... The Rule of 2.
    if it's 2, 1 pitcher & 1 everyday player, Trout & deGrom. Scherzer was money in the playoffs, but him being a 99 is like making MadBum a 99 back in the day. lol

    Gerrit Cole was the most dominant pitcher I saw last season. Guy was simply fire all year and in the post season. Dominant.
    He would be my 99 pitcher.
    I'd have Arenado and Scherzer at 97 if it were up to me. Can't be mad with the ratings though. I feel like baseball is the easiest sport to rate players and I think it shows every year. SDS does a good job with live roster ratings.
    Rating Arenado a 99 ought to be indefensible. The guy's slashed ?.265/.323/.476, 109 wRC+ on the road for his career. He's a great defender anywhere, but he's a league average hitter away from Coors Field. Wildly overrated in both the game and real life. They really need to get better about park effects in this game.

    Wish there wasn't any 99 overalls.

    Here's the thing....
    in MLB, you can have VASTLY different player builds calculate out to a 99 overall. Just because a guy is a 99 OVR doesn't mean he is a perfect, all-around baseball god. They are still going to have weaknesses.
    OVR doesn’t really matter. But I find it hard to understand how Scherzer and Arenado could be rated higher than Garrett Cole and Mookie Betts.

    Don’t they base it on the past 3 seasons and not only just on the latest one? Pretty sure I’ve heard that before. If that’s correct then I don’t really think there’s any argument that Scherzer shouldn’t be rated higher. If we are going based only on last season Cole should definitely be rated as high or higher then Scherzer but like I said I don’t think that’s the case. If Cole repeats his dominance from last year he’ll probably be starting out in the 99 overall club in next year’s game.
    If Cole repeats I think there’s a good chance he could get bumped up to 99 overall during the season in a roster update.

    Probably why he signed the extenison with the Rockies. He knew if he went somewhere else, his numbers would drop dramatically.
    Trout should be the only 99 in my opinion... Yelich/bellinger in the 97-98 range.. one more mvp type season and potentially 99. Arenado being rated higher than them is kinda outrageous.. His splits away from coors are not great.
