Pick your starter in RS

SDS

It's now a thing. You have to manage your stamina and you can even start a game with a reliever. I think it's a huge W. what do y'all think?

SDS

The only gripe I have is that stamina doesn't regen at all when they're off the squad. I think it should regen, but at a penalized rate. If I have a card out of my squad for 25 games, his stamina should be recovered.

I understand why they did it, but after like 10 games or so it should be gone. They could tweak it as the season goes on. It's a good start though.

Absolutely love it. Hopefully it also finally means we can pick our pitcher against cpu; really tired of having to quit out.

I don't have any problem with that at all. When we get later into the game, and people have more starters than they know what to do with, it would be very easy to game it.

Going to be a lot of guys backing out and re-picking starters after seeing lineups. Need to have vs LHP and vs RHP lineups.
Can start relievers and have starters available out of the pen

I wonder if they will still hide the starter on the lineup screen?

Guys are going to pick a righty to start, see the lineup is full of lefties and back out to pick a lefty.

Possibly, but usually I see a lot of balanced lineups. I would think it would matter more for those that use platoon players.

I heard nothing in the stream to indicate you'll be able to see your opponent's lineup. The only thing that it is changed is being able to choose your starter. You shouldn't be able to see your opponent's team, until the loading screen and then it's a quit to be able to get out of the game. Now maybe you heard something different, but I have a hard time believing SDS would bring back a known issue.
Now I guess during the loading screen you could try to dashboard, but I'm not sure if that would give you a loss or not.

I think you're right on this one. It's a non issue. And they can dashboard, but it's definitely a loss. Lol.

You don't see the other teams lineup or starter until the game loading screen though.

Yeah I remembered that after I posted it.
I'm getting good and making myself look foolish

SDS

Love it. Great idea. Big improvement.
