    Re: Funny stuff

    So Williamsburg lost a game giving up 16 runs recently, which was normal last year and is totally unheard of this season. What actually happened?

    Williamsburg was leading after 7 innings, 7-0. They had already burned through the starter and 3 relievers at this point, so recent FA signing Michael Shaw came in. He had to make 6 outs to preserve a 7-0 lead. This was his pitching line:

    2 IP, 14 hits, 16 runs, 4 BB, 1 HR

    And thus, Trabuco won 16-7. Shaw is awaiting a cut as soon as a replacement is signed. But it is actually the idiot game manager who should be cut. There was still a long reliever available.

    It's actually worse than you describe! Williamsburg led 6-0 after 7 innings and tacked on an "insurance" run in the bottom of the 8th to up the lead to seven. You'd think that would be a big enough cushion for the best team in the league against one of the worst, right? Well, in an epic collapse, the likes of which I've never seen in real baseball at any level or even in >100,000 games of CSFBL managing, the Trabuco Triples plated 7 in the 9th and 9 more in the 10th for a mind boggling 16-7 comeback win!

    Re: Funny stuff

    And I now had a similar game like this and it seems many of my relievers are already season fatigued more than 20%. I mean, you wonder about these idiots... I let them pitch a lot, with all my low EN starters and they complain!

    So I'm now giving them rest at SP5, which I don't use in a 4-man-rotation and rotate them in and out to keep them fresh.
