    Ok guys Spring Training has begun. Just a couple of things to keep in mind.

    • Every single player on your 40 man roster is called up for spring training. This means that at the end of spring training, the waiver wire is going to be chock full of good players. So please be smart about who you demote (and obviously who you put on the 40 man)
    • I have disabled suspensions.
    • Injuries are not disabled!! If you know who you want as a starter for the entire season, I would try not to get them much work. Maybe bury them 3rd on your depth chart or something.
    • This sim is a LONG sim, almost 30 days. So make sure you set good depth charts to prevent injuries.
    Next sim is Tomorrow night, exports due by 8 PM.

    Yeah, they're not there for me either. Maybe it has something to do with you being commish.

    for you OOTP Baseball Vets, whats good Depth Chart wise in pre season? having actual starters say 3rd on depth chart and have it set to play say every 5th or 6th day? just to get them some work.. would be like 5 or 6 games!! is that enough action for the sim etc for them to get ready for the season? or would even say every 7th day work out well?

    Fiddy14 Well, I'm not an OOTP Vet, be heres what I did. :)

    I have my starters listed as 1st in the Depth Chart still, however I have 2 players behind each of them. Those Players vary from playing every 3 days, and every 5 or 6 days depending on who it is.

    For my players that have a bad injury history I have them getting subbed out quicker and not playing as much in the Spring.

    For all my starting pitchers I put them on 50 pitch counts and I'm rolling with a 6 man rotation.

    I'm not sure if all this will help, I'm sure I'll still get a few injuries.

    --------------------

    Also, Pagamer07 can you tell me if my export went through? I'm at work right now and I can't remember if I exported or not... I'm pretty sure I did.

    2 games better, my players are younger, and your farm system sucks. Advantage: Baltimore

    Texas with 4 of the top 10 hitters, Boston with 4 of top 10 pitchers. Jeff Karstens as a top 10 pitcher?

    I did a 50 pitch limit on my starters as well. Also, did the three deep lineup with everyone playing once every three days. We'll see how that goes

    i was thinking of doing the same.. with that said, does it hurt guys say (Santana) if i dont even use him in pre season? like does it effect his happiness or whatever?

    I'm still at a lost to why everyone is doing this? I thought OOTP managed the team like ST regardless.

    i thought it may do that, but then again, it goes by how you have your teams strategy's set, it follows the depth charts etc all the time as well.

    so, with it being a 30 day sim, and not having 3 deep on depth chart, you risk the chance of over playing a player for no reason and them getting hurt. maybe some of us are going over board, but i just dont want to lose a starter for no reason. i lost enough of them throughout the whole season last year.

    i just went through and updated everything a bit more LOL.

    i have my pitchers set to a 6 man rotation (and on a pitch count), i then have a spot starter that will pitch every other 6th day (on a pitch count). i have Santana and Dickey both not even in rotation. i hope they dont get pissed!! LOL.. i also have my closer and set up man on a low pitch count (15 to 20).

    i then have the players depth chart for facing LHP and RHP set 3 players deep. 2nd player on depth chart set to play every 2nd day, and the 3rd guy set to play every 3rd day. so that basically means each player on the depth chart will play a game and should have the next two games off (unless they pinch hit etc).

    thats how it works from my understanding, so i figure with everything set like that i wont have that much of a risk getting someone hurt during the pre season games. although, now that i say that i'll probably lose 3 guys for the season with torn ACL's within the first week of the pre season sim. ha!!
