When I first read this thread, I found it interesting, but as it had never happened to me, my attention was admittedly limited.
Well, that was then...
My Marlins were just blanked by a sterling performance from Brad Penny and the Dodgers on May 28th-- he pitched 6 innings of 1-hit ball, striking out 3 and earning the win. May 29th, the Dodgers' starter was... shocker... Brad Penny. In the pre-game lineup, he was listed as "tired", but was still allowed to start. He only lasted 2.2 innings, surrendering 2 runs on 5 hits, where he threw 48 pitches. I haven't done any testing on other games to see if this has happened in the past or has been happening all along-- but it's the first time it's happened to me.
I'm running PureSim CE 4 and we're 54 games into our 3rd season.
