Pitcher on fire?


Pitcher on fire?

Sorry if this has already been answered previously... but is there any way to know if a pitcher is 'on fire' while watching a sim game?

Thanks

Re: Pitcher on fire?

Unfortunately, there is currently not a way to tell.

Re: Re: Pitcher on fire?

I would imagine the same way you can tell if a pitcher is on fire in a live game.

I'm interested though: What would you do with that information?

Re: Pitcher on fire?

Decide whether or not to close the replay if the opposing Cy Young winner is on fire 😛

Re: Pitcher on fire?

I don't think so, but you can look at a pitchers statistics from the game at the box score.

Re: Pitcher on fire?

Thanks for the replies... confirms my suspicion that there is no way to tell. So I guess my next question is... do pitchers ever really go on fire? I know they have a stat for it but I wonder if it's ever used.

As you play the game more often, you will notice your ace has the occasional blow-up game; your 4th/5th SP throws an occasional gem.
