Starters as relievers

SDS

Still don't like that you can do this; but I now understand why it's done.

Just brought BO Treinen in to save an Event game.

Entered with a full Green bar of Energy. After my THIRD pitch, it was yellow!

Come on!

SDS

It’s stupid. Defeats the purpose of building a bullpen and working counts to get a starter out of the game.

SDS

Yellow bar is fine, they are for 1 inning, need 30+ stamina for a couple innings. Starters as relievers is ridiculous. Pick your starter, yes for sure, start a reliever sure, but starters as relievers DUMB

SDS

I'd bet anything that SP lose stamina slower when they come in for relief.

Watched a guy open with Izzy, one Inning. PH for him right away and brought in Kluber. Kluber wasn't full but never dropped below green after 80+ pitches and 6 innings of relief

Not really. Openers are used by the MLB all the time. So then I can ask you the question... Are MLB teams that use openers cheesing in real life?

Treinen is not good...not good at all.

I escaped with my 2 saves and he's been banished.

All the time? Really? It’s super rare unless they have depth or fatigue issues.

Apparently you haven't watched baseball recently(year or two).... The A's, Rays, Twins, Rangers, Dodgers, and Giants have all used openers. And that is just off the top of my head. Not to mention I rarely see openers and I play 3-4 times a day

SDS

I get the critique but let's also consider that the Event is (a) a 3 inning game and (b) used to Prestige players. 3 innings games are not real. And most of the pitchers people are trying to Prestige are Starters.

Couple that with the fact that RPs lose stamina faster and I have no issue bringing starters in. My BP is stacked, but ultimately I'm just trying Prestige and get wins so have no issue with how any owner wants to "run" their team. Just don't bunt......

SDS

The only reason that I will bring a starter in as a reliever is that they require innings for pitchers in the TA grind. It is just easier to do it by starting one and bringing in another in relief. It saves a little time, and I am not using the best of the best pitchers anyway so I guess it doesn't matter.
