Getting annoying


Getting annoying

So my deadball era team pitching lineup held for 3 games then the system switched it again. If all the pitchers are considered SP's when drafting, the system should allow them to be used as such. It used to be that way

Re: Getting annoying

I have not heard any other complaints about deadball pitching not working so you’ll have to explain specifically what’s happening so I can look into it.

Re: Re: Getting annoying

I'll set and save my lineup of SP's I want and the next, like today, the computer has changed the lineup and some RP's with SP's

Re: Getting annoying

Ok I do see that you had starts from guys not in your rotation - I will keep an eye on it and I also updated my own deadball team's rotation and I'll watch and see if anything changes - I can't imagine this is something widespread or I would think I'd be getting more messages.

Re: Getting annoying

Ya it changed my SP lineup again

Re: Re: Getting annoying

I don't see that I see the same lineup:

Keefe
Walsh
Getz
Russell
McGinnity

Re: Getting annoying

So many of his teams games have been started by RPs. That’s true of one other team in that league. Is that just a deadball thing? I think his issues started in game 8. Walsh pitched game 3 so I assume he’d pitch game 8 (unless injured or moved) but instead RP Baldwin started. Then Walsh pitched game 9, but SP Getz came in relief instead of an RP. I don’t know if that’s normal or the result of what he’s saying is going on.

Also, McGinnity is currently his number 5 but he started game one. Not sure again if that’s the issue or maybe he had McGinnity one initially.

whos on first?

Re: Getting annoying

I looked at this yesterday and that team only had 4 pitchers labeled as SP. I assumed that was causing it to pick different 5th starters. But now I see there are 5 starters - can you toggle between RP and SP for players?

Re: Re: Getting annoying

@KR yes in Deadball you can set any SP as a RP because Deadball only has SPs.

In Deadall, you pick 5 SPs and the rest of your staff get turned from SPs into RPs. So every time you save your rotation, anyone not assigned as a SP is turned into a RP.

It's hard to say what the heck was happening in the past because I don't know how this team had his rotation set. Since I started watching his team, the rotation has not changed.

Re: Re: Getting annoying

Well, it isn't a "change role" feature, you have to pick the SPs on your Rotation page. So you have to pick 5.

Re: Getting annoying

Yeah, I believe the "change role" button only appears in fav teams leagues and best of (whatever year) leagues, and only applies to pitchers that actually had been used as both a SP and a RP in that particular season, if I'm not mistaken...
