alright I have searched high and low but can't quite figure out the mechanics of clutch hitting. is there an indicator on the player card as to how clutch he is? I know the dollar sign indicates a clutch hit/pop out but what determines the outcome? I have a feeling i'm missing a big part of lineup building and its about to get my manager fired. thanks for the help.

Clutch hitting comes into effect with a runner on second and/or third with two outs. Score and inning have no bearing.

When clutch hitting is in effect, SINGLE$'s become outs and out$'s become SINGLE**.

thanks. I had read that but couldn't quite relate it. problem was everybody I looked at was not clutch, so I didn't see both sides of the coin. the key to unlocking the mystery was in the misc sim stats. there I could see the effects of clutch, and find clutch players to compare to. I made some lineup adjustments to get my only 2 clutch players in the 4/5 slots.
puig has been killing me. 6 missed hits already in the 1st 1/4 of the season.

help me figure out the defensive side of things. errors and arm strength are easy to understand. I can't find anywhere how range effects things. it seems like it should. someone please answer how it factors in to things.

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. There's a fielding chart table on this web page:

http://somonline.wikia.com/wiki/Charts

but I can summarize it quickly:

Infielders -
Range/Chance for a base hit
1 / 0%
2 /10%
3 / 20%
4 / 30%
5 / 40%

Outfielders
1 / 0%
2 / 15%
3 / 30%
4 / 55%
5 / 75%

For outfielders, the chances of doubles and triples increase as the range rating increases. For infielders, the base hits are singles only. However, for both infielders and outfielders, the chance of the existing base runners taking an extra base also increases as the range rating increases (per the fielding chart only, not an optional extra base).

For infielders, the chance of obtaining a double play ground ball is higher with a lower range rating.
