High Cap bullpen disaster

Anybody have any insight here? I thought this pen would be really good. I've dropped Holland and Lidge to get some more depth, still not working

that actually doesnt look that bad to me, particularly for a 250 million team in Briggs.

True , but what is really telling are the amount of times relievers pitching at a fatigue rating of F6 or worse

what are your bullpen settings? Thats probably going to contribute alot more to the fatigued pitchers than who are the actual pitchers. Looking at this it seems you might have some slow hooks set, and maybe you have your overall bullpen set to conservative. You have plenty of pitchers available so HAL is either following instructions to let them go a little longer, or his in-game drinking is accelerating.

You are staffed with a lot of R1 relievers at the moment, and IME at high caps that rarely works out over the season. Even if they get clobbered a few times, you need guys like Jones and Lidge and R2 RP to eat innings without giving away the game consistently. All pitchers will get hammered at high caps, particularly with the platoon PH option available, so if you have the right combination of RP it could come down to settings. At the end of ATG8 I was having my best results using few roles in pitchers settings. Its too early to tell in ATG9 IMO.
