Player and Pitcher Changes

Teams may change the starting position of one position player once each season, but this can only be done by making a player's secondary position his primary position. (Players with "IF" listed as secondary position can not be changed. Must be a defined secondary position, such as 2B or OF, for switch to be made.)

A team may also request to convert one pitcher per year from starting pitcher to relief pitcher, or from relief pitcher to starting pitcher. In order to convert a SP to a RP, the player must be at least 30 years old heading into the season in which the conversion is requested. Stats for the pitcher will be reduced roughly in half to reflect IP and number of hits, runs, etc. ERA and WHIP numbers will remain about the same. Stamina will also be reduced in half.

In order to convert a RP to a SP, there must be historic precedent for such a change in "real" baseball (player started as RP and then became SP for MLB team), and the pitcher must have been used mainly as a SP in MLB for at least 3 years in his career (based on G and GS posted for those years). The baseline stat to be used for the pitcher conversion will be the career per game averages for all games, according to baseball-reference.com. A pitcher's stamina and on fire statistics will be determined by looking at the imported historic figures used by Pennant Chase for that player and averaging those numbers during the years in which the pitcher was used primarily as a starter. The commissioner reserves the right to deny the conversion request if career stats overvalue a player due to statistical quirks.

New owners to the league may drop one contract player from their roster, but only if that team has NOT already dropped a player that year. (So if a new owner signs on and drops a player and then leaves the league that same season, the new owner who then takes on the franchise will not be eligible to drop a contract.)

I just assumed that EVERY team attempts to steal signs. Some teams were just better at it than others. I also didn't care about the Ty Cobb stories , the Eddie Cicotte stories , the Denny McClain stories , the McGwire stories or the Sosa stories. I also tend to believe that all professional athletes probably use PEDs , at least , to ease the effects of joint overuse and injury healing.
