OK, I'm not going to post this in suggestions, because it's been suggested a number of times. Logical solutions have been presented, and any or all of them are better than the current coaching signing system in HBD. I agree with all of them. This is nothing but a rant.
I'm about to go into my third season. I've been trying to watch and learn. And this is THE ONE aspect of HBD I consider COMPLETELY stupid, wasteful, and unrealistic.
Four of my six hitting coaches want to test the market. Three of my pitching coaches. I don't really care about signing the best coaches in the world, all I want is these jerks under contract. I would just re-sign everyone without looking if I had the option.
I could understand coaches retiring, but do 50 percent of the hitting coaches in the real life minors switch teams every season? I suspect not. Does any coach in the major leagues, with a signed contract and a manager who's happy with him, jump ship any or every season? No way.
Does the highest-paid pitching coach in the majors, regardless of his team's status as a non-contender, try to quit on the team two seasons in a row? No.
I'm not one to criticize the programming, I don't freak out about the budget restrictions, for example... but the Coaching seems like one part of the programming that's been written in simply to make extra work for the HBD player where none may be needed or desired. It's a distraction, and an obstruction.
