fatigue levels

PostMon Jan 21, 2019 9:28 pm

trying to test my understanding of pitchers fatigue levels. so if i have my reliever set at f3 does this mean that he will be removed before his fatigue get below this level. or if i put him at f7 would he be removed on or before he reached f7? i would apprecaite the clarification

He won't be relieved until he reaches that fatigue level. Many managers give an f-setting to all their pitchers and then wonder why HAL is so slow in using the bullpen properly.

TIP: Don't use a fatigue setting for most of your pitchers. (And for the few I do, I set it at F8.)

Thanks for the response. and generally speaking i only do this for one or two pictures. my better relievers the rest i leave blank , the same with the roles , usually leaving 2 without designations, figuring hal will use them were he wants to instead of forcing the wrong pitcher into a situation, that is undesirable

What the reasoning behind your tip, Coyote303? I'd just like to know why this is a good idea.

If you set a fatigue level to say F7 for a run-of-the-mill starter, HAL will not bring in your ace reliever until the starter hits F7 fatigue level. This will occur often after many runs are given up and the game has been decided. Now, if you have really good starters and no good relievers, by all means give the starters F-settings because you don't want your bullpen used unless absolutely necessary.

Essentially overusing F-settings hamstrings HAL's ability to use your bullpen effectively and forces pitchers to stay in longer than you probably would like.
