Ohtani


Ohtani

I guess this is a question for GBacci- how are you planning on handling Ohtani in 2018 leagues? he ended up with 50 IP, so that might be enough to be considered as an SP, and he was quite a good one, but then he hits too....wondering if you have a solution

Re: Ohtani

Has he played in the field at all this season? I remember he was a DH most of the time, but I'm blanking on whether he's played in the OF or something.

Re: Re: Ohtani

For now the answer is likely going to be that he will be two different players in the database. So yes he will be pitching against himself in some scenarios. All other potential solutions involve an awful lot of logic and coding that just isn't going to be possible before 2018 leagues roll out in a few short weeks.

Custom leagues of course can choose to handle it however they want. It would make sense to import both the hitter and pitcher and then just make sure those two players remain on the same team.

Re: Ohtani

Custom leagues could easily solve this by not using him or any SP with just 50 IP. But I know some do, to increase the player pool. And yeah, he has only been DH so his hitting self will be imported in PC as DH.

Re: Ohtani

the easiest solution would be to allow the team that has him an extra roster spot,but could there be the potential that he would play twice in the game?

Re: Re: Ohtani

Will he also be available as a hitter in the all time Japanese leagues?
