I'm DONE with pinch runners !

Here is my lineup. Notice Kevin Mitchel at 3B and Averil in LF.

Edit this lineup Sim vs. RHSP Real-life (total)
# Name Pos Def Bal BA OBP SLG BA OBP SLG Backup 1 Backup 2
1 Walker, Larry (1997) (L) RF 1(-4)e2 5R .333 .419 .660 .366 .452 .720 Averill, Earl (1936) (L)
2 Hornsby, Rogers (1922) (R) 2B 2e17 E .328 .344 .643 .401 .459 .722
3 Mays, Willie (1965) (R) CF 1(-5)e7 3R .331 .379 .682 .317 .398 .645 Averill, Earl (1936) (L)
4 Pujols, Albert (2008) (R) 1B 1e7 3L .338 .416 .627 .357 .462 .653
5 Averill, Earl (1936) (L) LF 3(0)e9 E .340 .369 .687 .378 .438 .627
6 Mitchell, Kevin (1989) (R) 3B 4e34 2L .290 .333 .693 .291 .388 .635 Tannehill, Lee (1909) (R)
7 Herman, Babe (1930) (L) DH - 1L .271 .331 .514 .393 .455 .678 Tate, Bennie (1924) (L)
8 Campanella, Roy (1953) (R) C 1(-3)e6 E .273 .340 .547 .312 .395 .611 Tate, Bennie (1924) (L)
9 Larkin, Barry (1996) (R) SS 1e20 1L .231 .319 .449 .298 .410 .567 Taveras, Frank (1977) (R)


Ok, now I have Lee Tannehill on my bench to come in for 3B for Mitchell. Mitchel is checked in hitters settings to come out for def late with the lead.
...and this is what Hal did.

SUBSTITUTION at C: Bennie Tate - Hal pinch ran for Roy the prior inning !
SUBSTITUTION at 3B: Lee Tannehill - GOOD
SUBSTITUTION at LF: Kevin Mitchell - WTF !!! Why put him in LF and take our a "1" in Averil ....because Hal pinch ran for Averil ALSO the previous inning. So now I have Mitchell in LF which I NEVER would do.

Naturally, up by 1 run this happens:

0 J.Bagwell 3-10 Double (LF) b-2 F9
0 2 M.Dihigo 3-7 Walk b-1 F9
0 12 W.Wells 6-12 Fly Out (CF) b-0 F9
1 12 W.Brown 6-3 Ground Out (P) 2-3 1-2 b-0 gb(P)x F9
2 23 F.Tatis 5-11 Single (LF) 3-H 2-H b-1 fly(LF)x F9

Walk off-game over because of $@#$#Q pinch runners. DONE with that

Two things:

#1 - Good hitters should ALWAYS BE CHECKED do not pinch run for.

#2 - You should have Tannehill set to come in at 3B in the team settings, DO NOT USE the individual pull for defensive sub setting because you get crazy results. If you set Tannehill to come in you will get the result you desire far more often.
