    To the folks I've been in trade talks with, I'm going to be away from the house and the internet till tomorrow evening. Spending the night downtown with the wife in a belated anniversery celebration. I'll get back to any responses you send me then.

    Ed, try setting his individual player tendencies for "Use Reliever" and "Use Closer" to Never, if you haven't already done that. Then, stay on top of the schedule, and anytime there's a couple of off days in a row, make sure to update your rotation when Mark sends out a new DB so Ryan will go as soon as possible again.

    Thanks Lew and Eric. I have tried most of your suggestions. Even with Ryan as #1, a 3 man rotation and Skip he STILL didn't pass 95% usage
    Yes, I had reliever at never and pinch hit for at never.
    In some sims the #2 starter got more starts than Ryan h

    Will just have to stay on top of Marks updates.

    Strange! I've been running sims, lots of sims. Just finished one. I won 94 and lost 74. The strange thing is I scored 790 runs AND allowed 790 runs.

    So... that is probably THE WORST pitching staff in Gold Sox history. One reliever with a WHIP under 1.400. Hopefully the solid lineup will keep us out of the absolute basement.

    Transaction problem (again)

    A) 1972 season #237 Gamblers trade 1974 2nd to Dust Bunnies
    B) 1973 Rookie Draft #107 Gamblers trade 1974 2nd to Iron.

    Correct me if I'm wrong (turn away so everybody can raise their hand) but Gamblers owe Iron compensation for B.

    I could improve your pitching staff. Seven starters with ERA under 4.00 and ALL seven with WHIP under 1.40
