Can anybody explain how this works for me? i assume it will insert active players when your starter is scratched for that days game to help maximize games played.
How do you activate it and do you have to do it daily or will it work for the whole season?
thanks in advance.
That is very new for baseball. It has no lasting effect; at the point you click the button it updates your lineup to try to avoid empty slots. It does NOT in any way guarantee an optimal lineup or try to play the game for you. Specifically if it sees a lineup slot with a guy who has no game that day, it will try to swap him out. If it sees a lineup slot with a guy marked as not starting for the day, it will try to swap him out, but we only get that notification shortly before gametime. If it sees a starting pitcher in your lineup who is not scheduled to start that day, it will try to swap him out. That's about it.
