New Edit Lineup Page


New Edit Lineup Page

Hey all - quick note, the new page is up and with it comes the ability to toggle stealing at the individual player level. This has long been asked for, some people have wanted to turn off stealing for certain high speed players who might be lower down the lineup, or for a variety of other reasons.

As with any major change like this, please alert me ASAP with any issues. I noticed on mobile some of the strategy screens are pretty crammed so I will be looking into cleaning that up a little for mobile.

Re: New Edit Lineup Page

That's cool, Guy. Just noticing that everyone's default is "Yes" to Steal bases. And when I switched most of my players to "No" and saved the results, when I went back to the page again, they were all back to "Yes".

Re: Re: New Edit Lineup Page

Gus, thanks, I noticed that too and just fixed the issue. So please try again and it should work now.

Re: New Edit Lineup Page

I have a team in playoffs right now and all my players are set yes to steal. Does this only take effect when I save? Or does me having strategy to only steal with 8 speed or higher trump that anyway?

Re: Re: New Edit Lineup Page

Fair point - your team strategy is going to trump the individual setting.

Re: New Edit Lineup Page

Clarification, under the old system a player would only attempt a Stolen Base if he qualifies for the Team settings that equal or exceeds the Speed Rating set by an owner to steal, that's simple enough.

However even a 1 Speed like John Olerud who got a Double out of 80% of the Triples he ever hit, could steal a base as the back end of a double steal.

Does changing a players Steal ability to NO eliminate that possibility?

Not that I try often, but it makes stealing 3rd with a man on 1st and 2nd and no outs, a much worse option, and its already bad at any rate.

Re: Re: New Edit Lineup Page

It should have no impact on the double steal.

I suspect it would make more sense to make everyone under medium speed show "NA" on the lineup page.

Re: New Edit Lineup Page

Another great addition......Thanks again for all you do with this site!
