Yup, I know about these RL cases, was hoping someone had experience with this in OOTP. Oh well, guess I will find out!

Salary Arbitration vs. Player Options

So say I sign an international free agent to a 4-year deal, with the 4th year being a player option. If he opts out, does he have to go to arbitration or does he become a free agent?

Injury Insurance

I'd like to see some insurance companies in the game which could cover me against that nasty TJ surgery. I'll understand if they refuse to cover a 34-year old pitcher with a "wrecked" injury history,...

I'm actually very happy with how often my sabermetric manager pitches the closer in the 9th and 10th inning of tie games (i.e. he will let the close go 2 innings). Haven't compared much to the other...

As for what year, I keep most of my players in the complex until age 19, but I will sometimes promote 17 or 18 year olds if they look ready to "beat" short-season ball. At a minimum, that...
