PLEASE VOTE-----Seven Day Playoff Sims

Post by aaronweiner » Sat Feb 09, 2019 8:25 am

We've been debating moving our playoff sims to the same length as regular season sims. Playoff series can take up to two in-game weeks to finish, and there's been some discussion as to whether it's right to have one sim per playoff round or whether we want to allow playoff teams to make adjustments mid-series.

Please vote in the poll here so that we can hear your voice.

There are some positives to this for playoff and non-playoff teams alike: extended end of season PPT time for teams who are under the limit, more time to plan offseason moves, more attention to the Florida Prospect League, a little more "glamour" on the championship series and a little more of a reward for playoff teams.

The largest negative for this would be that non-playoff teams would have to wait longer to actively play (other than extensions and planning).
Generally the playoffs take about a week to sim as we now sim every other day. Extra sims would make that longer than a week, but no more than two weeks.


Tentative plan for this:

Geoghegan: simmed in full since it's currently 5 games (not a big difference).
Doubleday: either simmed in full or 7-day

Cartwright & Landis: 2 7-day sims (or as necessary, as teams could be swept).

I'd prefer the current format but be allowed to give different plans for starts depending on the outcomes of the previous games. Even better, maybe the possibility of using slack or something to talk to Recte during the sim if we choose to do so, so that he could tell us about injuries, etc. Maybe seeing the results live could tell him, he' start this guy next instead, etc.

If that's not possible. I'd prefer the status quo. I like the idea of being able to break up the round to make changes, but it would add another week to what is essentially already a pretty boring time of the year for most teams.

Thats a long time to go for non-playoff teams. Maybe just try it in the Landis for a couple seasons and see what people think.

Not a bad idea here...

In my limited playoff experience, there's been times I'd like to decide the game 4 starter, but it all depends on how the first three games go.

As it is now, you're just shooting in the dark...

If you're down 1-2 or 0-3, then maybe the 1st game starter should go even if he's only 80%?

Either way though, both managers have the same issue, so it's fine both ways

I'll vote "yes," but in my mind it's good only if (1) we can move pretty fast (using Slack or whatever to shorten the cycle), and (2) if it works for Matt's schedule.

My guess is that something like this would be fluid--that sometimes Matt could make it work and others he can't. So in ways, it would change the dynamic of the world year-to-year.

I voted ‘couldn’t care less’ as it’ll be a long while before I’ll ever get involved with these

I love to micro manage so I voted 7 days. But I'm down for whatever is best for the league and the simmer.

If I was in the playoffs, I wouldn't want to drag these sims out. Being that I'm not, I also don't want to drag these sims out.

Injuries and poor performances happen in the playoffs. I've long wanted to be able to adjust for games 5-7 based on what happens in 1-4. The entire point of the 2 month+ long season is getting to the playoffs and then we whizz by the playoffs in a blink of an eye while stripping participants of agency. Just doesn't make sense to me.
