HAL shifting defense on his own

PostWed Sep 18, 2019 11:24 pm

Kaline is a 1 in RF, a 2 in CF. Given the way the season has been (60s) I thought my best option would be to move him to CF. In the late innings HAL shifts him to RF and moves a 3 to CF.

Anything I can do? Should I just pick up a 1 utility CF so he gets in there instead of the 3?

I wonder what would happen if you set Kaline as a defensive sub in CF? Maybe HAL would leave him there? It's worth a shot.

I had same issue with Hank Aaron 1 in RF 2 in Cf with Sosa a 3/3 in right- Supposedly the 1 in RF and 3 in CF is slightly better than a 2 in CF and a 3 in RF- but yes HAL was unrelenting

I am having the same issue in the 2018 set. I have Stanton in RF (3 and a 4 in LF) Kepler in CF (2 and a 2 in RF) and a platoon of 4
4 outfielders in LF). I have Dyson who is a 1 in LF, CF, Rf. I set defense to replace my 4 outfielders in LF, but HAL moves Stanton to LF, Kepler to RF and puts Dyson in CF. I have a theory as to why. Those positions, LF for Staunton, RF for Kepler and CF for Dyson are their primary positions respectively. I am going to try the Kepler to CF fix.
