    Fili's BM Suggestion, Bug, Improvement Index Thread

    Whenever a new version comes out posters come up with a lot of good suggestions that get tossed around, debated, then forgotten.

    I'm going to try and index those ideas in this thread so we can leave out that last step.

    Mostly for my own faulty memory but if anyone else gets use out of it, then good.

    Bugs:
    Expanded Roster Issues: One, Two, Three, four
    Rookie of the Year
    -----a possible fix
    Runs scored on tags from second
    Sort Bullpen doesn't work
    Pitch Count does not update on stolen base attempts
    Disappearing Baserunners


    Suggestions:

    Player Development
    Allow users to assign playing time to minor league position players
    Allow users to set lineups for spring training games

    Improve player position change process
    Player Development/Run-Away Ratings Increases
    -----Specifically
    Left-Handed Pitchers underperform

    Game Play Issues
    Green Light for base stealing.

    Roster/Lineup Issues
    Pitchers batting 8th
    Pitchers as hitters and pinch runners
    Left-handed relief specialists
    Pitcher splits
    Allow 6-Man rotations
    Pop-up for player substitutions

    View Upcoming opponents roster
    View opposing pitcher scouting card from pre-game lineup screen

    AI Issues
    AI Managers, again

    Administrative Issues
    Auto-Save when simming multiple seasons

    Improved Financial Data, also, also
    -----Exportable financial data
    Custom Headers in Sortable Stats
    Don't show Free Agents in AA in Sortable Stats
    Add totals to sortable stats
    In process hitting streaks & more
    Daily Schedules and results
    Bold league leaders on stats page
    Minor League Draft shouldn't start immediately after simming previous day
    Magic Numbers on Standings

    Minor League Contracts
    Option to start at the end of a season

    Fixed/Implemented

    I just got the CD-rom version of the game and wondering what patches do I need to download and if there is a correct opening day rosters patch?

    Good list fili.

    The Complete Ballplayer is a must.

    Two things you forgot: The ability to add extra divisions & leagues. And a corollary: the ability to contract a team without the team & city disappearing from stat lines.

    Very good list. One other thing I saw in PBP mode, if you think it's worthwhile... when you're choosing a pinch-hitter, I'd like the ability to see each hitter's current year stats vs. the opposing team's current pitcher (just as you can see your pre-game rosters and how they fared against the opponent's starter).

    The yearly stats are too small of a sample size to be fully accurate, but it can really help, especially when you need it most. It's incredibly annoying when choosing from two fairly equal pinch-hitters in a tight game, only to find that the one you picked is 0-for-5 with 4 Ks against the current hurler, and then find out later the guy you left on the bench was 2-for-3 with two homers and 3 walks against the same guy.

    Good ideas. If you can A) find an old thread or B) create a new thread for those ideas I'll add them

    If you mean by complete ball-player, someone who has the potential to go 30-30 or 40-40, then I agree. BM tends to create speed guys and power guys. But I suppose you could tinker with the player settings of draftee power to speed correlation settings and see if that helps...

    When I say "The Complete Ball-Player", I mean the ability to use a player as a Pitcher, Hitter or Fielder. Throughout the history of baseball, almost 400 players have garnered enough playing time as Hitters & Pitchers to have double listings in The Baseball Encyclopedia.

    I found a thread someone started from last year about the pinch-hitter stats vs. the current pitcher, here it is:
