I think it means that computer manager will be less likely to turn to the bullpen. Like say if you starter is in a jam computer manager will let him work out of it. Or if your starter is tired computer manager will let him go 1 more inning

I think Dave is right but also I think it might stay with a reliever longer for example a righty specialist may stay in to face lefties

This is what I was afraid of.
I want my starters to get a long leash.
I want my relievers to get pulled quickly.

My four * starters are all $3M to $4M.
Pitchers ballpark.
I've got it set to conservative relief under team settings.
I have my starters set to F8 and have left quick hook and slow hook blank.
So that seems to be working.

But my relievers are being left in too long.
I have them all set to quick hook and I have 2 righty specialists set and 2 lefty specialists set.
With this set up Hal is doing what I want with the starters...
But when the game goes to my bullpen...(All six of them around $1M or so)...they get destroyed. Left in too long.

Suggestions?

Maybe this money allocation is just a bad idea.

($80M league. $22M allocated to pitching staff)

Having your starters set to f8 means they shouldn't be pulled before they get fatigued, so that kind of overrides your bullpen settings. I think having bullpen set to conservative and the relievers quick hook is confusing. I would try just setting bullpen to normal. Also with this kind of team I prefer to have one stud reliever.

I agree. Your "do not relieve before F8" trumps the team strategy setting, so you can safely set your relief usage to "normal" or "aggressive" without fear of your starters being pulled.

Yes. Experimented recently with different settings with a team that is playing horribly. Nothing to lose.
And I can say...this is definitely true.

Conservative setting definitely leaves starters in longer. Less likely Hal will pinch hit for them.

Tried normal and F8...hal pinch hit for starting pitchers earlier IMHO.
Conservative and F8...hal less likely to pinch hit for starting pitchers in a close game.
