View Full Version : Your Lineup?

As of late, I have had problems getting runs, and ending up with 2-1 or 1-0 snooze-fests, and other than that, very long extra inning games that usually end in a loss for me.

Now, I already know what my power hitter is gonna hit, clean up. So that's what he does, but I was wondering do any of you guys have a sort of style to getting a great lineup that will actually score runs, or am I doomed to be stuck in PL7 forever? :|

I have always used my best power hitter in the third spot in the lineup. Usually, my best power hitter is weak in contact and so I do not want three quick outs and then a bad contact hitter comes up and leads off in the second inning.

My advise, don't worry about the lineup so much. You need to power hit more. You're numbers are too low. I think that is the biggest problem I see with new trainers, too much catch and throw, not enough hit.

The overall best hitter bats third, regardless of power.

Then I would put the best (or next best) power hitter 4th. The top 2 spots are obviously best suited for fast guys who get on base.

Hope that helps.

Easily the biggest turn around I have seen from this team, and even after just a few minor tweaks.

Everyone had a hit, everyone had and RBI (except my pitcher who pitched quite the ball game).

What's even better is that this win game against a 9* team, where I am only 8 at the moment.

I go alot by average. Sometimes low sort lists can equal highest average and vice versa. Game time experience > Sort Lists.

I dont want to dampin your spirit or anything but thats one of my teams and there pitcher isnt trained. He is the best rated pitcher when i went thru the pitching process but i havent trained his pitching in about 6 weeks , i think he throws like 70-80 mph right now. Guess thats all arm strength for throwing , not really sure.

I'll tell you this, the last 2 seasons it seems like my entire team is in a slump, losing to inferior teams left and right. When I say slump, the numbers are fine, they just find ways to lose game after game. That's not to disrespect anyone, but I've got players maxing out in 2 of the 3 hitting categories and being above average in the other, and watching them strike out or ground out time after time.. turning my hair white. Watched my team put together 7 scoreless innings against an 8* team earlier.. with the amount of time I put into hitting there's zero excuse for that to be happening. I've tried tinkering with my lineup, doesn't seem to be doing a thing. Frustration is boiling over at this point, I don't know what else can be done.

GodofAcid, that's the other side of the scale, if you hit too much....slump city. There is a fine line between clever and stupid. At least for me.
