Football Manager does this. Older players often acquire separate ratings for coaching and can then be offered new contracts as coaches or player-coaches. I think it would be a cool thing to have,...

Not sure I understand why

A guy can't get re-injured on a rehab assignment as easily as he can if you just plop him back into the lineup. He's playing baseball. Is it an effort...

I do not see that many inside-the-park home runs but do think the percentage of slow guys who get them seems high.

I would go slightly in the opposite direction. I would like to see one-pitch stop if I'm managing the batting team and the count goes to 3-0, so I don't see a guy I'd have taking all the way swing...

It is a fictional world.

Also, how many teams are there in New York? In my current save there are the New York Red Raiders and the Brooklyn Devil Dogs, so the market is split up. I've seen...

I had that thought the first time I read an OOTP manual, laughed out loud and named my manager character in the game Barney Collins (it's short for Barnabas).

Syd got me thinking about differences in the game since our childhoods (mine was earlier than his), and 50 years ago weren't there usually 10 pitchers on a 25-man roster? No room for a LOOGY, and...

FiveThirtyEight did a piece early this year about a sharp increase in the percentage of batted balls that are foul. That ties in with working the count to make games longer. I don't think we have...

Maybe this is obvious, but you need to get the guy up in the bullpen with one out if there's a runner on first.

Big free-agent contracts backfire a lot, just like in real life. Lots of stuff is outside your control, just like real life. In my current save I'm doing very well with a middle-market team because...

Dr. Funke's point about minor-league managers is spot on. I once had a marginal pitching prospect who was a very good hitter and could play as a catcher. I'd invite him to spring training and use...
