Epic bullpen fails that make me insane


Epic bullpen fails that make me insane

Stretch drive for the division title. Playing a team I should beat. Two outs in ninth. A two-run lead. And then... the Fates begin to snicker.

TEN STRAIGHT RUNS! Pass the morphine...

I lost the division, but won the wildcard. An epic bullpen fail if there ever was one.

Re: Epic bullpen fails that make me ins

Your Bullpen definitely imploded there, however that error with 2 out and 2 men on in the top of the 9th is what was the REAL culprit, doing that is as sure to cause you to fail as does



Trying to steal 2nd base, down 1 run in the 8th inning in PC

I challenge folks to track what their success rate is on that= it HAS to be pathetic, because my % of getting cut down in that instance has to be in the 85 percentile, it's a losing proposition

Re: Re: Epic bullpen fails that make me

Wow, that really was an epic fail. Yes, the error for sure, but then 13 unearned runs! Two pitchers who faced 5 batters each and couldnt get anyone out. It's very rare to see a 13 run inning where the cause wasnt the last RP getting shelled past pitch count.

Re: Epic bullpen fails that make me

not to be debbie downer, as it's been mentioned before, but those are not unearned runs for those relievers.

they are "team" unearned, but earned for the RP.

not sure if this can be corrected in PC or not. either way, quite the meltdown.

Re: Epic bullpen fails that make me ins

Correction, yes, thirteen runs. I think I was still in shock.

Re: Epic bullpen fails that make me ins

I don't see why they would have kept pitching if the runs were considered "earned" for each reliever. Strategy is set to make manager pull a reliever who gives up two earned runs. Surely the runs being unearned were what kept them in the game? And if so, doesn't that seem like a design oversight of some kind?

Re: Re: Epic bullpen fails that make me

not sure on the "design" or whatever. but the relief pitcher does not get the benefit of an error that occurred 6-7 batters ago that didn't truly factor into his shelling.

the team ERA gets the benefit, but he got hammered, with or without the error, so his runs are earned.

Re: Re: Epic bullpen fails that make me

I think once the score gets "out of Hand" the sim leaves the RP in there until his stamina is gone, no need to burn up all your Relievers in a lost cause, same reason position players sometimes Pitch in Real life
