    Question:

    at the end of the ratings the + or - numbers......I have read the rules about it but it just dont sink in.. Lefty +5 Does that mean all his attributes are +5 against lefty batters? if so what do they do against rightys? same with Right handed pitchers... -7 against leftys or rightys? then with batters...I just cant get it to click in my thick old head.

    Question:

    Think of "RL" as "effectiveness against a righty" – just reverse the sign when the opponent is left-handed. Take four players:
    Right-Handed Batter (RHB): RL -3
    Left-Handed Batter (LHB): RL +3
    Right-Handed Pitcher (RHP): RL -3
    Left-Handed Pitcher (LHP): RL +3

    RHP vs RHB: -3 and -3 becomes -3 and -3 (no change), so -3 + -3 = -6 (penalty)
    LHP vs LHB: +3 and +3 becomes -3 and -3 (reverse vs lefty), so -3 + -3 = -6 (penalty)
    RHP vs LHB: -3 and +3 becomes +3 and +3 (reverse RL for pitcher who is facing a lefty), so +3 + +3 = +6 (bonus)
    LHP vs RHB: +3 and -3 becomes +3 and +3 (reverse RL for batter who is facing a lefty), so +3 + +3 = +6 (bonus)

    The rate at which the RL rating is applied varies depending on the batter/pitcher match-up. Just like in real life, right-handed batters facing right-handed pitchers are not as disadvantaged as left-handed batters facing left-handed pitchers.


    Right-handed batters facing right-handed pitchers have the overall impact of RL ''reduced''.
    (Which means the penalties aren’t as severe for righty batters vs righty pitchers)

    Left-handed batters facing left-handed pitchers have the overall impact of RL ''increased''
    (Which means the lefty hitter versus a lefty pitcher - he’s screwed most of the time)

    And the bigger the RL +/- the bigger the swing in situational stats.

    That’s from the help pages btw

    Re: Question:

    Another question: what about LM....Why can we not send players that "Qualify" down to LM on our own without getting commish involved? Why is it set up this way? Im assuming its to keep owners from taking advantage of something, but what?

    Question:

    Any player who is qualified automatically get assigned to LM in trade, free agent signings, and drafts. So the only way a player is moved out of LM is by the owner. So if an owner moves a player from the LM only a commissioner can reassign them (and I’m assuming it’s to prevent abuse for LM players from gaining additional bonuses at the flip as perhaps the system automatically assigns bonus to any player in LM). However I’ve never been involved in a league where the commish wouldn’t reassign a qualified player back to the LM. I also imagine that if owners had the ability to reassign players that there might be a few unscrupulous players who might try to abuse it.

    And I forgot to add that once a player is in the active roster even if for one at bat, plays defense for an inning, or pitches even to one batter they are disqualified from being assigned to the LM.

    Re: Question:

    Ok, great, Thank You....Answers about anything I was wondering about. I did not realize about the pitching to even one batter disqualifies them...I had it in my head there was a certain amount of innings. Must of been thinking about AAA. Thanks again
