LOL. Well, I'm pretty comp illiterate. Don't spell so good either. I can't say about programming. My only thought is more/additional settings/controls. The 1 thru 5 settings for "removal" (quickness to jerk) is just not adequate in my view. Set it a 5 and "Sparky" will pull the starter sometimes just because he gave up a 2 run HR, EVEN when that was his ONLY mistake. I've had my SP jerked when throwing a 2 hitter (3rd inning) just because he gave up a HR, even though it was a 2-1 game. I've also experienced "Sparky" just NOT pulling a SP with a 4 "jerk" setting even though I would have liked him removed 50 pitches and 6 or 7 runs earlier. There is just NOT enough settings and controls to allow US mgrs. to control pitching changes the way we'd do it!! Same thing with pinch-hitting. It needs to be OUR decision when to decide to make these kinds of game management moves. "Sparky" is too formulaic and the decisions are sometimes COMPLETELY illogical and totally unrealistic because NO real manger would have EVER done what "Sparky" just did with that specific Pitching change, or NOT changing!! I'm aware there is a "live" version here at WIS, and I most likely should play that and likely that would solve my issues. BUT, though I've tried to "check it out" and try the LIVE game, I can't even get it to go to the proper page when I've tried it. On my PC, the LIVE version just won't work. I tried getting help with PC issues from the site administarators, BUT that was useless. They have no interest in personal assistance. COMPLETELY unhelpful. So, I just gave it up. I'm seriously considering searching to see IF I can find another website that allows a similar style of baseball management simulations and switch over to that, IF it's better and even exists, of course!!

P.S. I've only been here for just over a year. So, this is totally based on hearsay, HOWEVER, I've been told that this site was WAY WAY better run, and much more fun before it was sold to Fox Sports. So, there may be no solution and this site may be beginning a slow death. Obviously FOX don't give a damn about it. We should ALL (in mass) jump to another sim site location, IF any of us can find a better place for our baseball management "jones". That's just my (1 user!) opinion.
