Defensive Replacements


Defensive Replacements

I have asked this question before and was told something that appears not to be true. I inquired as to why a +2.94 fielding shortstop would be taken out of a game for a defensive replacement and replaced with a worse fielding shortstop. I was told it was because the shortstop was pinch hit for and the defensive replacement is listed out of order ahead of the pinch hitter in the boxscore. However, in game 126 of my season this happened again and this time there is no pinch hitter to put the blame on. If I have a +2.94 fielding shortstop I do not want him replaced on the field by anyone. Why is the system making this type of managerial error?

Sincerely
Vince of the Arizona Aardvarks.

Re: Defensive Replacements

Rigney has a higher FLD% than Bartell. If you allow it, the sim will sub in anyone with a higher FLD% or a higher dWAR than your current player in the game.

If you do not want this to happen, go to Edit Lineup/Rotation, SB & Defensive Subs, and choose that you do not want Bartell to be subbed out of the game ("can be replaced by sub")

Re: Re: Defensive Replacements

If I want to make Bartel available to be pinch hit in a scenario where offense is needed but to avoid having him replaced by a worse fielder when defense is needed how do I accomplish this in settings?

Thank you in advance for your assistance

Re: Defensive Replacements

You can, either he can be pinch hit for, or he can't - If he can't be replaced in the field and he can't be pinch hit for he will all-ways stay in your lineup unless he gets injured.

So if you select that he can be pinch hit for, then if/when he does get PH for a replacement will come in BUT Thats the ONLY time a replacement will come in -

Re: Re: Defensive Replacements

Two completely different settings. Mark him as yes to be pinch hit for and mark him as no for can be replaced defensively. The game is using YOUR settings.
