I'm trying to get the 40 save achievement during franchise....but I'm not 100% sure on what size of lead you need for a save. Any insight would be appriciated.

You can have as big of a lead as 3 runs. Any more than that, and it is no longer a save.

What I am doing is just trading for whoever has the most saves and them simming most since my margin is always a lot bigger than that..

So trading for that does work then????

A pitcher is in a save opportunity when as soon as he comes into the game, the tying run is on base, or at the plate, or on deck. For example if you are winning by 5 and the bases are loaded, then that would be a save opportunity. Also when your lead is no more than three runs and you pitch a full inning (9th). I hope that helps you.

I did the same thing as #2. I stopped the sim about 15 games before the season ends, and went to the league leaders, and the leader of saves had 30. I ended up just playing 10 3-inning games for the achievement.
