Lineup screen suggestion Topic

Can we get a "bats and throws" abbreviation on the lineup screen? 

Currently, it only says ''name ( bats )" on the lineup screen but on the def replacement screen it says ''player ( b/t )'' .  I think that would be more helpful... I cant memorize handedness for three teams worth of players.

Just curious . . . why would you want or need to see "throws" on the lineup screen?

I can't think of a reason.  Just wondering what you're thinking of that I'm not.

If you want to throw your 75/65/55/55 LFer at 2B for a game, it would help to know if he's right-handed.  I've had more of an issue with this with my minors than majors. Not a bad suggestion.

Assigning positions handles that.   Assuming you don't assign LH players to 2B/SS/3B with any regularity.

The "Position Assignment" pop-up page from the "Edit Rosters" page does a good job with that.  If you hit "Show Recs", it will suggest primary and secondary positions for a particular player.  You can modify the suggested positions as you wish.  But if a guy is a LH thrower, it will never recommend 2B, 3B or SS as a primary or secondary position.

Then, on the lineups page, when you click in the "Pos" pull-down, you'll see the primary and secondary positions noted.  If your 75/65/55/55 LF doesn't have 2B noted as a secodnary position, don't play him there.

Yea, fair enough.  I don't do a good job of assigning positions to my minor leaguers.  It wouldn't be the worst thing in the world to add "throws" to the lineups, but I get it's mostly unnecessary.

It's not a bad idea.   It just doesn't have much practical use if you use the other features of the game.
