While this feature might seem realistic it actually diminishes the value of your Tommy Johns, Claude Osteens, Al Downings, etc in a way that is unrealistic.

It was fun to be able to plan a three-game series by putting pitchers out there that could complement each other and hold down those mighty batters, but, that's out the window.

What's unrealistic is managers setting a stacked lineup for a particular game based on analysis of 162 games of historical data.

Warren Spahn, a reverse-pitcher, faced left-handers 25 percent of the time. This new game feature encourages the manager to ignore realism in the interest of "control", control a real life manager would never have because he would never be able to benefit from 162 games of historical evidence unless 162 games were actually played.

It's that old argument: realistic replay vs "what if we lived in an alternate universe?"; which is better?
