Game Play question


Game Play question

Say a player has 7 speed but had no stolen bases, if your settings allow a 7 speed to attempt steals, will he steal bases or always get thrown out or picked off?

I only ask because if a player had no home runs, he can't hit one

Re: Game Play question

I believe it’s just based on speed no matter how they got to it.

Re: Re: Game Play question

I agree - however, 7 SP and no SB is an outlier. It would be a player with a bunch of triples and no SB. As I understand it, Speed is determined by SB & triples.

Re: Game Play question

Even more of an outlier than you know Sheik - he's a CATCHER!! kind of a John Wathan idea unicorn

and he already stole a base since I posted this -

Re: Game Play question

Looks like the catcher in question, he only has two triples but he also only has fewer than 60 at-bats. That would be a good reason why it's such a high speed total
Project the 58 at-bats out by 10x, you get 580 at-bats, but you would also get 20 triples. Which in my opinion is pretty damn speedy

Re: Game Play question

And honestly, how many guys do you see hitting that many triples in any given year recently. There's really only a few that have done it lately. The only player that comes to mind is Curtis granderson, who did so back in 2007
