If it is an issue it should be easy for us to replicate and fix. In the meantime the DKS staff strongly encourages Action fans to mute their laptop when playing games in bed with the wife present.

I've never done any "numbers crunching" on it, but can say it isn't a thing where an '82 Ricky Henderson takes off for 3B. Not that it can't happen with him, but it is more of a case where a guy will go with a low percentage for no understandable strategy reason, and is out with ease. Inning killer for the CM. I have seen it in all era's I play from the 70's on. It is not an every game thing, but it happens enough to notice, again in both my Modern and Retro leagues, and even my Replay's."There is always a reason for a pinch hitter and usually it's pretty obvious. Especially if it happens three games in a row. Campy's 1972 stats vs right-handers are brutal. I doubt the pinch hitter was inferior."I checked on that, but that is not the case. The PH was Adrian Garrett, who was a horrific 0 for 11 in real life, all against RH pitching. Of course, Garrett promptly got a hit, so maybe the CM knew something? And Lewis even then PR for Garrett, a good thing.The other two times you "could" make a case for the CM pinch hitting for him, but it had passed up better spots with the batters before him at the tail of the batting order, and Campy played full time in 1972 (this is only of the "As Real As It Gets" Leagues Chad runs, where everything is played "as is"), so it was odd to see the CM make that choice each time.On the Narrator thing, it just began happening with the last update, so I can definitely pin it to that. No settings were changed before or after, and presently all are off, but he has a job to do I guess, so he announces the PH's no matter what. I agree, the Mute of the computer would work, but I like to have the subtle back ground noise, and that actually doesn't bother the little lady, she says it actually puts her to sleep. But when all of a sudden a voice from out of nowhere announces "Pinch Hitting...", it startles her right awake, and I get "the dreaded look".GET YOUR AS- OUT OF BED !!!??? PLAY SOMEWHERE ELSE !!! THE DREADED LOOK WILL STOP !!! I LOVE YOUR STORY U MADE MY DAY!!! PS EVER SINCE I'VE BEEN MARRIED I KNOW NOTHING BUT THE DREADED LOOK !!!

Windows 7 machine.

I had not touched that setting as I always have the Narrator unchecked, so I couldn't say whether or not the New EXE, changed it, or if it had always been set to that, but now the New EXE overrides the Narrator being unchecked and announces PH's anyways. Something Dave can check on and find I am sure.Alas, I have no games to play right now, but I'll watch and report back if that fixes it, thanks!I have the Narrator off and do not have "FIRST AB" turned on and it is still happening to me...pinch hitters getting announced ever since the ;ast update.

Likely a programmer error. We'll look at it Monday.
