Allow to start players before second game starts on double-header day.
I have an SP who is scheduled to start on the second game in a double-header day. It should allow me to start him after the first game ends and before the second game starts. That would be fair.

Today I had a starting pitcher who was pitching the second game of a double header. Instead of leaving him as not active until the second game began, you guys list him as active at the start of the first game. And of course when I log in to make sure he's on the bench as I was going to sit him tonight, he was up under the starting pitching and since the first game was being played, I could not move him back to the bench. And he goes on to get freaking racked. This is unacceptable. We should be able to move STARTING PITCHERS in and out of the line-up before their game starts. Utterly ridiculous.

I made a trade after game 1 started to add the starter for game 2 to my team. I was allowed to waste a trade (10 max for the week in the league I am in) but then could not use the pitcher. Please lock the pitcher out if you are not going to allow them to be used or give some sort of warning.

Doubleheader players editable after first game; simple as that. If the player is not in the starting lineup the 2nd game, why is that roster position not available to designate a other players. I'd add a new stat line temporarily under the player in the first game and it reverts back to normal the next day.
Rosters lock for the day at the beginning of the first game. The changes required to make substitutions for the 2nd game would conflict with the platform of the game.
