    I've been lucky so far- just a few day to day injuries. But some teams are getting crushed. We can put it up for debate to maybe shorten the sims to 3 or 6 games. it would make the season take longer but it reduces injuries if you export daily. This way you catch the tired players more often. This is why I went with 7 days instead of what seems to be the league norms of 15 to 20 days now. I like the 7 day pace though- especially for rebuilding teams.

    I like the 7 day also..I utilize the 7 day lineup and find 7 days is just fine.

    Are the 7 day lineups working for you? It was messing up my rotation. My # 5 guy would always start 2 days in a row.

    I find I must manually input my SP on the 7day lineup, otherwise it skews the rotation as you mention. I have done my lineups, then forget to export and have starters all out of whack. But I have done ok with the 7day so far in the AHIBA3.

    I'll have to try that. In another league that simmed 15 games I had that problem- I figured since we are only doing 7 it would be ok. I've been so busy with league stuff I didn't pay too much attention until all my pitchers eras were climbing rapidly. I turned it off and they are slowly going down- but I like 7 days to rest my batters.
