    Re: crazy stats

    I have been running a dynasty from 1950. Among other statistical anomalies, around 1960 there was a home run explosion with several players hitting 60-plus homers a year.
  2. Unrealistic stats for Eddie Gaedel [v21.04]

    I began a dynasty in 1950 on 21.04. After simming for three years, I did took a look at the other computer players in the league to see what their rosters were. I noticed that Eddie Gaedel had a...

    AI crazy about substitutions

    When the DH is in force, the AI seems to ignore the DH when substituting for a player injured out for a couple of days or resting.

    Normally, I carry a catcher, first baseman, two infielders, and...
  4. Batting games less than fielding games in appearances.

    I just saw something that I have never seen before.

    I am playing BBM Ver 20.20

    When I finish with a dynasty, I often go back and build a spreadsheet for the pitchers and one for the...

    V20.16: Scouting reports

    While not a "show stopper" for me, I just ran through my starting eight position players during an off-season. Four of them played 162 games and each of their scouting reports touted their "value"...

    Re: I'm Sorry (40-Man Rosters)

    Maybe don't sweat the small stuff. Just to a simplified 40 man roster where teams can only protect so much of their talent from a draft. Trying to track and compute service time day by day might be...

    Career Patterns

    There are a lot of veteran players (to include future hall-of-famers) who seem to be willing to sign on with a team and play in the minors for a couple of years at the end of their careers and even...

    Re: Sign and Release Rears Its Ugly Head Again

    AI programming is a bunch of rules to guide the computer into making "smart" decisions. The current AI rules seem to be:

    1. At fixed intervals, examine available free agents and sign as needed...

    Re: Sign and Release Rears Its Ugly Head Again

    The rules don't exist in real life, but a team signing and releasing the same guy several times in the off-season (and eating his contract each time) wouldn't happen and is unrealistic in the game. ...

    Re: Sign and Release Rears Its Ugly Head Again

    I have seen it in 2007, 2011, and 2015.

    A suggested fix would be just to make AI rules that dictate:

    1. Players signed during the off-season cannot be released till end of spring training...

    Sign and Release Rears Its Ugly Head Again

    Since back in BBM 2007, I have been complaining about the AI doing serial sign and release on the same player in a short period of time.

    Re: Number of games in 1961 expansion season

    I just began another game starting in 1954. Once again, 1961 came, the AL expanded to ten teams, and only played a 154 game season. 1962 came, two teams added to NL, and both leagues went to 162...

    Number of games in 1961 expansion season

    In 1961, the AL added Washington and Los Angeles to make a ten team league.

    In a dynasty beginning in 1950, the two new teams were added in 1961 yet the AL still played a 154 game schedule like...

    Re: Official Baseball Mogul 2012 Suggestions

    Another way to "game" the system is to have a seven year contract with a very high three year team team option at the end. The "player" (or his agent) jumps at that not knowing (as you know) that...

    I wouldn't worry, with a 64 health the kid isn't going anywhere. He might never see a major league game.

    BBM also lacks the strategy used in the older days when your staff "ace" was also your closer on his days off. Lots of pitchers used to have 45 games pitched, 25 starts, 20 complete games, and ten...
