perhaps this a sign of how bad my pitching is… but I find it frustrating when my manager skips a rested SP and gives the start to a rested RP. Not only do I disagree with the decision, but it really messed up my bullpen because my setup man goes out and throws 80 pitches, and is then usless for the next 3 or 4 days. I’ve tried to deal with this is the player strategy, but I can’t seem to prevent this.
does anyone else have this problem? Is “rogue manager” just something I have to live with as a GM?
I haven’t noticed any problem like that in a long time. I use “strict order” and check the box that starters are not allowed to be used as relievers. I do need to keep an eye on the rotation, especially when I make changes to assure that all starters will be rested on the day of their start.
