Question about long relievers


Question about long relievers

So my SP blew up and was pulled in the 4th. I would have imagined that would be a situation for my long relievers, but instead it was managed around 4 of my relievers...the long relieved being put in at the end of the game in the 8th.

Am I missing something? Should I not designate my long relieved?

Re: Question about long relievers

Check your strategy; where do you have "Latest Inning to put in long reliever" set at? The issue might be there

Re: Re: Question about long relievers

If you have " Last inning to consider bringing in Long Reliever" set to 3 than he will never enter after the 3rd inning unless the rest of the Bullpen gets tired. Latest you can set it to is 5 -

Even then, he will still get pulled if he gives up more than the amount of runs you have set for relievers to allow, so you can't count on your long guy actually going long every time
