    Default FIAT: Position Switching Pitchers

    Position Switching in the FOBL Constitution is found under Section XII ("Technical Matters"), and currently reads as follows:

    E. Changing Player Positions
    1. Owners may change the primary position of their players so long as the player has a defensive rating at the new position.


    By the power vested in me by the owners in the FOBL, I now pronounce the following addition to said article:


    -------------------------

    2. Any player with a velocity greater than 80 mph (i.e., Pitchers) may not be converted to any position other than SP, MR, or CL.
    -------------------------


    Let it also be known that this new rule will be retroactively applied to the following players, who as a result will have their pitching talents zeroed out in the editor and their velocity set to 75:


    Luis Figueroa
    Adan Zayas
    Mario Rivas
    Willie McKinney


    This rule will take effective immediately as of this posting.

    YOU KILLED MY BEST PITCHER!!!1

    Seriously though, if this happened a couple of seasons ago Figueroa might have actually developed some of his hitting skills.

    Rivas had dev'ed up to something like 5/4/5 and was going to keep growing. It's good that we nipped this in the bud.
