***Injury Policy***
« on: October 19, 2005, 03:14:10 AM »
In the interest of fairness and cosistancy, I thought I would post how I handle injuries when I run sims.  This way, everyone knows what my 'default settings' are.  I am calling these my 'default settings' because this is the policy I will use UNLESS I HAVE RECEIVED OTHER INSTRUCTIONS FROM YOU.  I want to stress that - I want you to have as much control over your team as possible, so if you would like to have your team's injuries handled a different way, post instructions in this thread and I'll do as you ask.

Type of Injury - Action
Day-to-Day, any length of time - no action
Player is out, less than 1 week - no action
Player is out, 1 week - no action
Player is out, 1-2 weeks - no action
Player is out, 2 weeks - player is placed on 15-day DL, player of same position is called up from AAA.*
Player is out, more than 2 weeks - player is placed on DL, player of same position is called up from AAA.*

* - If there is no player of the same position at the AAA level, I will call up another player from AAA and let a bench player already on the big-league roster play in the injured player's place.  I will not call anyone up all the way from AA unless I have no other options, because I know some people are picky about when rookies should make their big league debuts.  For the same reason, rookies will be among the last players I call up from AAA to replace injured players.

Also, after I call a player up, I will insert them into the lineup and move everyone up a spot, placing the replacement player in the #8 spot in the order.

Players Returning From The DL
Unless you give me instructions stating otherwise, it will be up to you to activate players and put them back into your lineup.  This thread was created to give you a forum for getting guys back in your lineup ASAP.  So, take advantage of it! 

One final note - feel free to post what your new lineups should look like in this thread as well.  Otherwise, the player will go into the spot of the player he is replacing.

I just received an email that one of my pitchers does not want to be a "reliver".  I emailed him back to ask him if he wants to be a liver, or if I should just shoot him.
