Completed Trades Window and Injuries Topic


One of the things that does not mirror real baseball is the way players move in trades in HBD. The owner review period in this game (which I am all for) essentially means that if we trade ML players, we either have to work shorthanded for up to 3 games (something I refuse to do...I do inactivate minor leaguers traded) while the other owners review the deal, or play our traded players, risking injuries that would nullify the trade.

Obviously, when a guy is dealt in MLB, he leaves. There is no such issue there. Occassionaly a team might work shorthanded for a game while the replacement gets there (or Minor Leaguer gets there as a temp fill-in), but here we still have our guys active for another 3 days. That creates a problem.

I suggest that you add to the game engine either a freeze on injuries to traded players during the 3 days during which a trade is being rveiewed by the owners, or perhaps create some form of roster exemption where the traded players are in limbo (I highly prefer the first option).

Thank you.

Designate the players.   They're off your roster and you can use call-ups.   Of course, you're assuming your deal will go thru.   That could bite you in the *** much like an injury does.

Right. I think in either case (designate, don't use them) it is a work around the problem and not a solution.

Yeah, if you designate, and the other person doesn't, and a player from the other side get injured, you'd be screwed

There isn't really a solution.   Turning off injuries isn't a workable solution, IMO.

Then there is no risk to playing the guys in the trade.   No risk isn't a good thing.
