What is the point of Pitcher Preferences?

PostFri Dec 01, 2017 11:14 am

I have a LH specialist that is coded for "quick hook" and "avoid RHB" and has the role of "LH Specialist". He is called into the game to get a LHB out in a big spot in the 7th, perfect...Then he stays in the next inning to face 6 RHB that go, "BB, BB, single, BB, single, double. That's not avoid RHB, LH specialist, and certainly not a quick hook...my god...I have two perfectly reliable setup men that could have pitched but instead I lost by 4 runs.

Add "max 1-2 innings" and it will work better

I would add aggressive to relief usage under team strategy as well. Who knows is it possible those other two relievers were tired? ALso if you assign too many roles Hal may interpret that you want to save your guys for set up. I find that using 1 closer 1 set up and always having 2-3 guys with ni designation works well.
