We hadn't gone that far yet.
Our model was going to be...show me players from 1989-1990 who also played from 1993-1994. Or show me players whose first season was 1989 but also played in 1994.
How important is it to be able to do what you listed, which is slightly different. Looks like you want to specify an additional search which says "player first season was in year XXXX" in addition to rest of search.
that would be very important. Often in progressives you are targeting for certain year or years, so what crazy mentioned would be very nice as you could see what players, in a specific draft, help you most in the years you are targeting.
sidebar: I've noticed over the last week or so that if I have multiple setup A pitchers, and they are all at 100%, it will sort them based on alphabetical order of first name. That doesn't seem to be the best way to do it. I'm in a 1989 progressive with both Jesse Orosco and Rob Dibble set as Set up A. In RL Dibble has more GP, more IP, better OAV, and better WHIP yet Orosco has appeared in 22 more games than Dibble at the 105 game mark. Similarly, in every league I go to that has more than 1 set up A, the pitcher with the name closest to A in the alphabet always appears more.
Will there be more in-depth bullpen settings for us to use to specify whether we want someone to be our go-to pitcher? or at least to have sparky determine the process another way besides picking the first name in the alphabet?
