Intentional Walk not strong enough


Intentional Walk not strong enough

So, world series game in mid-century. Runners on 2nd and third with Musial coming up + 2 outs. First base open. and he has fire activated. How on earth does he not draw the IBB there? Luckily grounded out, but still, if that doesnt trigger the IBB, what does? (and yes I have it set to allow the manager to do that)

Re: Intentional Walk not strong enough

Matt that would differently be one of the times in a game the IBB should have happened. I just wish we could manually do that. Could save our necks more than once.

More of an ancillary part of the story. Still Musial, with first open, fire or not

Re: Re: Intentional Walk not strong eno

Show me the box score so I can analyze. Could have depended on who was behind him.

Re: Intentional Walk not strong eno

Happened in 3rd inning of this game. Next batter might be too good, but Musial is better on paper.

That's the one

Re: Intentional Walk not strong eno

I haven't had a chance to look into the code logic yet, but my assumption is that Doby is a pretty strong hitter in his own right, his rank is elite for that league, so it's a toss up on whether you really want more runners on base. That said, there's an argument either way, and certainly could be a stronger argument for the IBB, but this manager logic stuff is fairly rough because you get complaints either way, especially if the next guy smacks a double that scores three instead of two. Especially if you were up by two runs, you probably would NOT want the IBB with two outs - the logic can get pretty complex. Still though, I'll look into it and see if there's some tweaking that could benefit from this example.
