Designated hitters
Posted by James Tucker on Monday, Apr. 16th, 2012 at 9:41 PM

With the change of simulator are we still using National League rules. In which case for DHs does that mean they cannot be used as they do not have any fielding stats?

I only ask as I have Travis Hafner on my books and a possible keeper, but only if we are using DHs, or making some adjustment for the lack of fielding stats.  From our discussion last year it appears that Hafner has to be shown which hand to put the glove on before taking the field!

Here's what I had in my email yesterday...

Once again we are not using the DH in our league.  YES you can draft them, but bear in mind if they don't have a fielding rating at any position (see your Team Page -> Stats-Real -> Fielding) I would caution you to be wary of the defensive effects.   I don't have any conclusive data to help you make a decision, but from what I read about the defensive penalties its probably not a good plan to play a DH at a a position if they aren't rated there.

If any of the guys that bought the software have additional insight please add it.

Thanks Al. I thought I had read everything carefully before posting, but clearly not!  I will leave Mr Hafner behind.
