The 3 Batter Minimum Rule

This is something that The Show should have an option for. The only reason this was added in real life is to speed up the pace of play, pace of play is not an issue in the realm of video games. So they should give us the option of rather of not we care to implement this dumb abomination of a rule into our franchises.

I believe you can turn it off in settings for franchise. I originally was going to be I don't mind it as much it makes me rethink matchups

Hmm I didn't see it as an option.

Re: The 3 Batter Minimum Rule

I like it.... Personally.
I am using it in my carry-over, which I was in the July portion of the 2019 season.

You can bring in a reliever with 1 or 2 outs in the inning & can bring in fresh reliever the next inning. For example: RP "X" came in Bttm 7th, 2 outs & Bttm 8th RP "Y" can start the frame.

Re: The 3 Batter Minimum Rule

I actually love the rule. Added a new layer of strategy to baseball.

And yes it speeds up the game a little.

It does add strategy. Different kind, but Iím getting used to it. Who will i bring in who maybe able to handle both left/right hand hitters. Who has the stamina. Adds a layer of stress.

Re: The 3 Batter Minimum Rule

As someone who primarily plays with classic roster sets - I hate the rule. I get it...but I hate it. I wish we had the option in "play now" games to turn it off. There were lefty specialists (Paul Assenmacher, for example) that I want to just use in situational spots - but I can't.

But I also know the game isn't made for old farts like me, so I digress...

I always am for toggles.

I too play a lot of classic rosters.

We can go into a custom suite we all dream of for that (able to remove expansion teams, ability to set up AL East and West/ NL East and West and remove the wild card).

But I too....digress.
