A few wishes

I've dabbled in OOTP for years, but XX has really captured my attention for a variety of reasons both related to and unrelated to the game itself. So a few of these might actually be possible and I'm unaware. Which I also suppose would be a flaw in the documentation or GUI or my head. But here goes:

1) I've yet to see an OF overthrow a target or throw up the line, etc. A throw up the line might be just a cosmetic issue, but an overthrow would not be. I haven't done a study to see if OF errors are affected - they probably aren't. But whether they are or not, aggressive baserunning teams are going to draw these errors more than slow, passive teams.

2) Relatedly, throws that come through from deep RF with no trailing runners advancing can be something that is kind of irritating. I don't think this is mere cosmetics. If I try to test an OF's arm, there should be a consequence to the defensive team of making a dumb decision to throw home or to third.

3) Great idea posted elsewhere: pitchers with "their" catchers.

4) Small, but being able to print from a Player Development Report from my browser.

5) Small, but the ability to move columns within a layout.

6) AI not properly devaluing "Fragile" players.

7) AI overvaluing veterans. This is a tough one, because owners often demand you keep popular players, and often those players are older. Fans don't want to see Albert Pujols when he's 54 unless it's Old-Timers Day. Even 34 and locked up for 5 years is highly doubtful.

8) Finally, the ability to take a retiring player of interest and use him as a prospective coach in the minors. At least offer him a contract.

9) One of these years, I'd love to see just a little more robust coaching system. Being able to have a coach speak to a player about something or get feedback from the player if he needs a day of rest or is hurting. Having that coach be a 1B coach/3B coach. Or hearing from a coach's own opinion they think somebody is hurting or needs a blow.

10) Another one for longer range, but just more sources of other information as well. Multiple top prospect lists. Multiple scouts opinions on draftees and/or free agents.

Some of this is huge to add I understand. And this game is unbelievably fun as is. I can't thank the developers enough. I'm sure OOTP 21 will be even better.

I always wondered why there was no print option. Nice to be able to print out my teams stats and then while sitting on the toilet, go through it. lol
