In a recent game, I took 1 run lead into the eighth inning. Although all my setup men and closers were available and at 100 percent, Sparky put in my mop up who promptly blew the save. I have my managerial setting set to "use mop up only when losing". Why did Sparky do this? Could it be glitch in the latest release? Here is what the release.notes say about it: "Improved relief pitcher selection for tie games in 7th or later when closer should not enter, manager now looks at specialists before setup pitchers. Previously, specialists were being looked at after setup pitchers in this situation."
Has anyone else experienced problems with Sparky's relief pitcher selection?
