In my few dealings with WifS, almost all of them are complete morons.  But interesting topic, I have never actually read the play by play from any of my games.  I just look at the final score and move to the next game.

If you don't read the PBP, how can you determine exactly how effective your true you-know-what is doing?

Easy, look at his card for season stats.  Not too bright are we?

FWIW, I got this response today.

Thanks

In such a short time you went from "concerned about knuckleballs" to not even reading the PBP.

What a 180.

OK.  I had sent in a ticket in early May with a small suggestion to the sim.  Now, I understand it's a tiny request with little barring on the game, and you might even argue I'm wrong in my suggestion.  But I never got a response until today....2 and a half months and it hasn't been looked at?!?

Very small possible edit to the sim - with runners on 2nd and 3rd, and defending a 1 run lead in the 9th, a manager rarely brings his infield in with 1 out, because any ground ball that gets past the infield likely ends the game. I feel most managers play the infield back, concede the run, and take the out.

It has been received but not reviewed yet. You will have a response once that has occurred. Thanks.

What cust. sup. is saying is that Houston got inj on the first throw, he did not leave the game until he had the 2nd bad throw. The inj did occur on the first throw but he tried to play through it. They just placed the information about Frederick, replacing him following the injury information. It just was telling you that after the injury, Houston sometime with in that inning was replalced by Frederick. Not when the injury first happen.

The problem is the way the injuries are done. A lot of MLB players try to play through an injury, only later to to pulled. It should have read Houston was injured, then a few plays later he was removed and replaced at that moment with Frederick.

How can you possibly interpret the PBP and CS's response that way?

Pretty sure that's incorrect.  The computer did not replace him until after the half-inning.  They said they'll fix it.

I'm guessing that there is just a small helpdesk of lackeys that read the tickets and write a response in based off of a script. If it's something they can't fix themselves, it gets escalated upwards and I am going to make a wild *** guess and say there aren't any engineers left or they are working on a different game.
