Actually Ratchan my team has far more players with a REAL BA significantly higher than your team does and as a result because of the high Whip pitchers in that league they have a much harder time qualifying for Slump Buster so it’s a real disadvantage.

Right now I have 1 player who is SB eligible - your team has 5

the average team has 3-4 eligible and we have played 90 games - that's very high for PC

The low average high Slugging and OPS guys are constantly in SB - yes it’s something I could change in my drafting but it is not the best situation to be in- I would be sacrificing average in order to gain a fake advantage that’s not a realistic one, do low average power guys get hot in real life? Of course but not all season like PC when they are constantly in SB with big boost parks - it makes trying to build a team based on speed, BA and defense a bad strategy- also very unrealistic-

now if you could limit the times a player can enter SB that would even things out a bit
