I recently got Kluber and I am embarrassed using him. But i realized why. I don’t necessarily think people are being jerks.
The problem is that when you get. A decent lead like 3+ runs people are more likely to quit against him. This leads to him being the the starter that gets full stamina quicker and therefore always fresh. along with another starts or two.
The solution is on us. I admit I have quit against Kluber a bunch of times. If I am down 5 late. I don’t waste the time. Now I stuck it out for the next guys sake
Quits are half the reason, but also Kluber and Newhousers stamina is through the roof. I pitched a complete game with Kluber and he had half energy the next game, that just isn't right
You see Kluber all the time because while implementing stamina reductions to your rotation was a great idea imo, they aren’t reduced enough and you can essentially run a three man rotation.
It’s dumb of people because he will be like kershaw last year. Eventually he will be a whooping stick except on legend. He is [censored] near unhittable on legend
I use him, but I run a 5 man rotation, so every 5 games.
