I just lost a 5 game series, mostly because the pitcher I wanted to start my game 5 didn't.
I tweaked my rotation like this. My ace pitched the game before and he was listed under "Starter 1" and was at 86 (100) stamina, so I knew he wouldn't start. Because it was game 5, I put my other 2 starters in the bullpen since they were both at 100.
The pitcher I wanted to pitch was in "Starter 2" just under my ace that just pitched.
The Sim didn't have him start. It had my Long A start.
Just curious. I notice in the playoffs you have some leeway with your rotation each game. Why didn't this work for me? What did I do wrong?
This doesn't make sense....
After game 4, your rotation should have looked something like:
Adam Alpha ('13) R Starter #1 86 (100)
Brian Beta ('12) R (O) Starter #2 100
Gary Gamma ('11) R Starter #3 100
Derik Delta ('10) L Starter #4 100
That is, if your #1 just pitched and your #2 was at 100%, the ball (next starter designation) had to be with him. Moving your #3 and #4 starters to the bullpen would not affect the starter.
I am unsure, but I think it is impossible to get a pitcher designated to the bullpen to start in the next game. The starter will alway be the guy in the rotation with the ball next to his name even if that violates your rest/ fatigue settings.
After you rearranged your pitching staff did you double check to make sure the settings you wanted took effect?
