Game Play Question


Game Play Question

In the game below my team led 5-1 bottom of the 9th, my reliever who came in in the 8th, loaded the bases in the bottom f the 9th with only 1 out.

Why didn't my closer come in? Tying run at the plate??

He was not tired either, did not pitch game prior.

Am I missing something? my closer can enter a tie game too.

Re: Game Play Question

Because Proly started the inning, he won’t get pulled early unless he gives up the set number of runs.

Re: Re: Game Play Question

Wow Yankeebb, I always thought that the closer automatically enters the game in a save situation 9th inning and on.

I never knew about that "started the inning" thing, thanks just kinda odd

Re: Game Play Question

I didn't know that either, will remember that.

Re: Re: Game Play Question

I think the new rule for real mlb about facing 3 batters is stupid

Re: Game Play Question

You would think the computer running the sim would be able to tell the situation and make the appropriate substitution. It is one of the very few things I find on here that doesn't take place like you would think it does normally.

Re: Game Play Question

MR Bubbles I think the new rule is worse than stupid,this is no longer even baseball as we know it; John McGraw would be shaking in his grave if he heard of this baloney.

Re: Re: Game Play Question

i think it was tim mccarver who wrote a book called its a great game so why do they keep messing with it

Re: Game Play Question

McCarver was right on. If it is not broke do not fix it!

Re: Re: Game Play Question

uh, baseball is "broke" - as a National League fan to the core, this Two True Outcomes nonsense is not the game I recognize

Re: Game Play Question

3 true outcomes. K, BB, or HR.

Re: Game Play Question

Don’t forget all the bunt singles. Oh that’s just PC, never mind.

Re: Re: Game Play Question

I reviewed some code, and I don't think it was actually a "start the 9th" issue. I think it was missing some logic in regards to a save situation (ie, tying run on deck = save situation).

I have made some changes, so please keep me posted if you are seeing a difference.

Re: Game Play Question

The Change you made seems to be working Guy - note the box score from a game today

Re: Game Play Question

Maybe. If you have RPs set to come out after giving up 2 runs that’s another reason why he left.

Re: Re: Game Play Question

You are correct Yankeebb, I didn't remember he gave up 2 runs and would be lifted regardless, unless he was my last pitcher.
