    Horrible management leads to bad player signings and decisions to release/trade players based not on performance but on cost cutting. Players are randomly shuttled between ichigun and nigun and have their roles changed midseason for no apparent reason.

    A bad manager leads to questionable decisions on starting lineups and selection of pitchers/pinch hitters in game situations. Team micro management leads to trying to change pitcher’s delivery/batter’s stance midseason whether the player is doing well as is or not. It is almost like they are trying to lose.
