I'm confused


I'm confused

Not that I'm complaining, but how did Mike Napoli, playing because my starting catcher was injured, a 5 Speed, steal 2 bases in a game when my minimum Steal speed was a 6??

I double checked my settings, minimum speed to steal is a 6 and the opposition had a catcher -Pudge Rodriguez in the whole game.

Re: I'm confused

Did you set minimum speed of 6 for "fast" runners or "medium" runners? The options are separate from one another...

Re: Re: I'm confused

nope fast was a 7 medium a 6

Re: I'm confused

Hmmm then that technically shouldn't have happened... Very odd...

Re: I'm confused

Definitely odd. Cliff Floyd is another 5 spd on your team and he hasn’t tried to steal all season. Napoli hasn’t played much but these were his only SB attempts. No other slower runners on your team tried to steal this game, and opponent had a valid catcher.

Re: Re: I'm confused

what's so odd is that it seems he replaced Hundley who is a 1 speed, so it's not like the swap would have somehow inherited the wrong speed or something... Did he get placed in the lineup at game time?

Re: I'm confused

Looks like Hundley was in lineup but got hurt previous game. So Napoli started in his place this game.

Re: Re: I'm confused

Is there a part of the SIM that's called the "Baseball is crazy anything can happen" section? If not, there should be. lol

Re: I'm confused

And the only other player on that team with less than 6 speed with a steal, or attempt is Sheffield, and his steal was the back end of a double steal.

Re: I'm confused

I wonder if it has something to do with him being subbed in, but I would be shocked if there is some hidden bug that has not been caught all these years. I’ll look through the code when I get a chance and see if I can find the cause.
