7day lineups

I have a question, if I use 7 day lineups, then I do not need to set up depth charts or? If I do not can i still use depth charts menu just to set pinch runners because I want to use them?
Also if I use 7 day lineups then I do not need to set rotation on pitching menu?
And if so can I still use pitching menu to set ML and closers?
Thank you

7-day lineups overrule depth charts to the extent that you allow them in 7-day lineups settings. Once the game starts, however, you still need depth charts to tell your AI manager how to make substitutions as they become necessary or advisable. This includes injury substitutions, defensive replacements, and pinch runners and hitters (unless you manage everything yourself during games).

7-day lineups will also determine your starting pitchers, but how relievers and closers are handled needs to be managed in the bullpen section of the pitching page. Unless, again, you manage your games on-field.

Keep an eye on 7-day lineups if you do use them. For want of a better term, they can go out of "sync" after a while, particularly with starting pitchers. Also recall that you have to set 7-day lineups anticipating the opponent's L/R SP (unless you defer for this to your depth charts in 7-day lineups settings). You may find this more of a challenge than you might like.

Don't scare him off.

7-day lineups give you way more control.

Thank you this helps a lot, one more thing if I set the option that prevents AI changes to my team and I play out my games, then the depth charts are of no use? The AI woudnt automatically insert MR that is set on the depth chart to enter?

I use 7 day lineups and have them clear after each use and re do them. I've seen instances where if you don't clear them and reset that for some reason days off or what have you it thinks the same pitcher should start 2 days in a row...so like Bru said they go out of sync. But yes they give you much better control provided (for the most part) you are only simming 7 days at a time and keeping tabs on them

Yes, that is correct.

If I set a player strategy and force start, but my depth chart has the bench player in the lineup every 5th game, will my AI coach put the bench player in? Or if I am using a 7-day lineup and I put that bench player in, will the AI force start the starter instead?
