Stupid playoff question...


Stupid playoff question...

... that I suspect you may have heard many times before.

My Ace is currently scheduled to start game 3. Is there any legal way for me to rearrange the order in such a way as to start him on game one?

Re: Stupid playoff question...

If he is Tired it doesn't matter where you place him, he won't start unless he is the ONLY SP you have, and then if he DID start, he would be Tired and probably get hammered and I don't mean drunk... Even if you put all the rest of your non tired pitchers in the minors, I think the computer would call one up before it started a tired starter.

If he's not tired you can do whatever you want

Re: Stupid playoff question...

Thing is tho......EVERY TIME I have seen this situation and benched my Ace so he could start Game 1 in the Playoffs has always come back to bite me. Have NEVER won a series where I employed strategy so that I was fully ready to go with my Aces pitching Games 1 and 2 of the Playoffs. It's one of the more annoying "glitches" I seem to find with the PC.

Re: Re: Stupid playoff question...

It’s not a glitch. The game doesn’t care if you bench your ace or not. If he’s ready he pitches the same either way. Of course, in playoffs he’s likely going against a great team with another ace
