not enough rps


not enough rps

I am in a auto fave teams league and am thinking of using the cardinals from the late 20s-46ish. sopme great hitting performances.1930 team every batter has plus .300 avg. hornsbys .400 season,musial ,great speed. the problem is relief pitching. they diont have enough guys actually listed as rps. my ?,if you have say 11-123 pitchers and yopu have your 5 sps and one designated for long relief but carry 2 to 4 more sps will the sim only use the 2 -3 actual rps and run them into the ground or will it put the undesignated with a n actual role sps ion.this will likely also come up when your few rps need rest.i realize I can get some more rps in suypp draft but they usually aren't that good

Re: not enough rps

Not sure where I remember seeing it, but it says somewhere that in favorite teams leagues, it is recommended to have at least one modern day team for that very reason. The bullpen may seem to be unnecessary to focus too much on, but mostly not focusing on it at all is a VERY bad idea...

I would seriously recommend at least one modern day Cardinals year (maybe 2004, 2011, etc.) for at least SOME quality RPs

Re: Re: not enough rps

that's what I was thinking,because if you have an extra inning game you pen will be in shambles

Re: not enough rps

Can you not change extra SP's role to RP?
I was able to do that with Pettitte and Peacock when I used the Astros in a favorite team league.

Re: not enough rps

Yes you can but only if those SPs have at least 1 relief appearance in the selected year. If not, you won't be able to do so. It might require a little bit of research to figure that part out since the draft page doesn't tell you that when you draft the player. Baseball reference would be particularly good for that...
