Bochyball is very similiar to Martyball, very unexciting
coaching and does not fully utilize the young talent on
their teams. Takes a talented team and wastes it.
Bochyball came into existence because a career bench player became a head coach and always hated warming the bench.
For those unfamiliar with Bochyball here are its basic rules.
1. Never use young talented players with dynamic defensive
skills when you can start older vets with decreased
mobility and range.
2. Never use young talented hitters with power or higher
batting average when you can start some pathetic hitting
veteran because of experience.
3. Never rest an older veteran even in a slump unless he
gives persmission. Regularly rest your young future stars
so older bench player can get regular starts.
4. If older vet gets in a slump, let him play through it even
if it gets really bad. If a younger starter has slightest dip in performance, sit him on bench or send him back to triple A.
If you really screw him up, you can then trade him for
another tired scrub veteran castoff.
5. When selecting playoff rosters, experience is more
important than talent or proven performance.
6. Make sure young talent in playoffs still gets no experienceBochyball really is best for teams with aging teams with
so you can continue to play experienced vets who have
no farm system or money to spend where it creates the
least damage. See San Francisco. Of course,
Bochyball, like Martyball, is at cross purposes with managers
trading for new young talent and growth your own
talent from the draft.
