I've done more than a few March to October runs, and I've noticed the same glaring flaw in every single one. In many no hit moments, the manager will keep the starting pitcher in despite having no energy, giving up multiple hits and multiple runs until the end of the 8th inning. This is not only unfun, but also unrealistic. Under no circumstance should I expect Yohan Ramirez to be kept in a game after throwing 120 pitches, giving up 2 hits, 4 walks and 2 HR, yet here I am, time after time expected to throw my 157th pitch for a strike, and then I get punished for not being pulled sooner.
Yep. I came into one of these with the Angels Felix Pena where the starter was out of energy to begin with.
I can go through a whole season and not lose any challenge, except these. Usually within 1 or 2 batters.
