I just had a pretty disappointing encounter in ranked...

SDS

Bullpen arms don't bounce back like starter's arms do. SDS's fault, not your opponents. Stamina needs to be reconfigured

OP is right

it is a WEAK move by the opponent

it shows the opponent has no confidence in his bullpen, has no confidence in his role of the RP situation

It’s 19-1... I don’t think confidence is an issue

yeah its definitely a lack of confidence in his BP - and 19-1 means nothing if you sit in the lower ranks he's got hardly any games in

What if he literally just didn’t want to blow a bullpen arm on a game that was already over? This wasn’t even a competitive game so I don’t see why complain on something that would’ve done zero to change the end result

you know you guys make a lot of sense my apologies i see your angle and understand better now

Yeah, you guys are probably right. I more or less made this post from pent-up anger after seeing Hal come out of my opponents’ pens so much. But I guess the move made sense in this case.

happens to the best of us pal

lots of good advice in this thread from cool dudes

see ya on the field

I'm just confused how the game wasn't called due to the mercy rule.

same here. same here. This is the biggest mystery. We must get to the bottom of it.

I almost exclusively use Hal as a blowout sponge.

All you have to do is read. It's already been explained. Here's a copy of the game summary:

The guy with 19 runs was the visiting team and was winning 9-1 after 6 innings. Going into the top of the 7th, he scored 10 more runs, so now 19-1.

The guy with 1 run was the home team and even though he's losing by more than 10 runs, he still gets his last-at-bats for the opportunity to prevent mercy rule. In this case, he had to score 9 runs in the bottom of the 7th to take it to the 8th, but couldn't; so therefore, mercy rule called after 7 innings.

Starters out of the pen has been one of the worst moves brought in by SDS.

Yes it is done in the game but not very often and usually only in the playoffs. They should have just allowed players to use a reliever as an "opener" and been done. At lease increase the stamina use by a SP being brought in from the pen triple so that the decision to make that move is more difficult.

Isn’t ranked seasons , for most of us, technically playoffs? Wild Card, Division Series, Championship Series, World Series?

SDS

If he was at a critical point in ranked seasons, I can see him resting bullpen arms...makes perfect sense. Why let a guy who clearly is motivated to play out the whole game back in? He was resting his pen for the next game and making a point at the same time.

No. You still get to play again no matter how many times you lose in RS. In a real playoff scenario you don't get to keep playing after losing 3 or 4 depending on the series.
