Biggest 7th Game Meltdown in PC History


Biggest 7th Game Meltdown in PC History

I think I just suffered the biggest 7th game championship series meltdown in PC history.
Leading 10 to 4 going into the top of the 9th of the 7th game of the dead ball championship, going for my 2nd dead ball ring in a row. The visitors score 7 runs in the 9th to win 11 to 10.
Let me know if anyone can beat that.
All I can say is what till next season....PLAY BALL!!! :)

I would have liked a link to the game in question, you have 20 Leagues, I don't have the patience to go through all of them looking to find the game, but would have liked to see it!

Re: Re: Biggest 7th Game Meltdown in PC

Patience is not what is needed. If you look at his list of leagues only one is in the Deadball Era

Re: Biggest 7th Game Meltdown in PC

I missed the fact that was Deadball was included in the message, however, regardless, attaching a link seems appropriate.

However tough that loss looks- having a 72 Ranked Pud Galvin as the 1st man out of your Bullpen when you have FOUR higher ranked relievers waiting for Galvin to possibly use up his stamina before entering the game, in the 7th game of the world series is dubious strategy at best

Re: Biggest 7th Game Meltdown in PC His

Pud was my 6th bullpen option but was my long reliever, can only assume that PC considered this game out of hand and brought in the long reliever instead of my other 5 relievers ahead of him. Will turn this into a learning moment and place a better reliever in the long relieve role if I get lucky enough to get to a game 7.
I am not turning this into a gripe session, but just thought this was a rare occurrence and wonder if anyone else had a similar situation like this.
As I said, I am ready for the re-draft and will get them next time.

Great attitude. That's definitely a crappy way to lose out.

Re: Biggest 7th Game Meltdown in PC

if he was your LONG reliever he should not have entered the game in the 8th inning unless that is a Dead Ball setting that's different than all the rest, crappy way to lose, no doubt.

Re: Re: Biggest 7th Game Meltdown in PC

A Long RP could come into the game in that spot, if your Long RP is also slotted in as the final RP in your bullpen order. Pud Galvin must have been set as Long RP and been set as the final position in the RP order. [I, personally, when hitting the playoffs, will slot my fifth SP into the Long RP role... and, during the season, try to get a competent sixth SP into the Long RP role. I've found a sub-standard SP often pitches better in the Long RP role than he would as a rotation SP.]

The SIM, when leading or losing by 6 or more runs, will always bring in whichever RP is slotted in the final spot in the RP order. But, if that RP gives up the minimum of runs set in your "Strategy," the SIM will then bring in your top available RP.

Perhaps, in Strategy, the OP had the "Pull Relief Pitcher after allowing this many earned runs:" setting at 3 runs, which means that the back-end RP Pud Galvin would stay in until giving up 3 runs... then the best RP would come in to try to stop the bleeding.

Unfortunately for the OP (but, fortunately, for his opponent), the top available RP gakked it, too.

Re: Biggest 7th Game Meltdown in PC

That's a good point I did not consider Sol, I never set a guy as LR and last RP and for the same reason you said.

I have found that a shaky SP - say like a 55-58 in the Long man role, set to get an early hook, is far more effective than say a 63-66 ranked RP - Those guys tend to get hit HARD when they do get hit, and by hard I mean single, walk, 1B error, double, and then another hit - no thanks.. they give up 3 or 5 runs before they get yanked
