fire rating


fire rating

doles any1 know how much fire rating actually affects the gameplay. I have a low avg low fld pct ss with a fire of 13,when all other players in the league are below 10.. whats up with that(keenan Thompson impression)

Re: fire rating

One hitter (or none) will be on fire for your team each game, so it has pretty minimal impact on a specific player. The fire number is percentage odds that player is on fire for the game. The sim runs through your lineup in order, and once a hitter is deemed on fire, it stops. Like slump buster it adds some percentage to their stats for the game. You can tell who is on fire if any by watching the game replay.

Pitchers work a little different, as I believe each pitcher is checked as they enter the game, so there could be multiple. Nothing shows if a pitcher is on fire or not so you'll never know.

Re: Re: fire rating

but why would a player with horrible stats have such a high rating

Re: fire rating

Real MLB players are given a rating consistent with their stats (mainly power stats). If you are in a custom league the commish can create new players however he/she wants.

That league you are talking about has strangely low fire for everyone. Seems the commish didnt want fire having much impact.
