Standing Trends


Standing Trends

Something I still don’t get is how some teams improve their standings without seeming to do anything. In my first league (1168 ATG) my team is 12-15 with their latest win breaking a four game losing streak, while another team is 13-14 with an ongoing five game winning streak. Their line up has been the same and their pitching rotations have been the same, while I’ve been trying to tweak things. Is there something I’m missing? Thanks.

Re: Standing Trends

I will say in general that good teams go on losing streaks and bad teams go on winning streaks. Don't get down if you lose 4 straight -- it happens to all of us.

Re: Standing Trends

Often tweaking things is not necessarily the right move. It can be, but could lead to overreaction and deviation from the numbers. It's a small sample size, so don't sweat it and hang in there.

Re: Standing Trends

You started the Season 15-2. Sometimes I go the whole season and not change a thing with my batters. Most of the time I change around some of my pitching. But you can tweak yourself into losing. DO NOT PANIC if you lose a few games in a row. Have faith in your players. Continue to learn the game and try to figure out when is the best time to tweak your lineup. Sometimes I tweak my lineup when I am 20 games up in my division. Sometimes when I am in last place. It just depends on the flow of the season. Continue to learn and watch other players. You will get there.

Take Care and Be Safe,
