Why not just try to get better?

SDS should simply remove the ability to take an extra step in H2H. It adds nothing but frustration to the experience.

No. They need to fix running back on pick offs. Stealing is a part of baseball. Leads are a part of baseball. Having the camera shift during a pitch letting you know it’s a pitch out and hitting one button to safely run back to first base and score your free ball isnt BASEBALL. People aren’t going to stop sending the runner when they have the ability to get him back to first base every single time and only put themselves in a better count at the plate.

People keep ignoring the fact the devs said they fixed it but did absolutely nothing to fix it. Now nobody talks about it, and it can get looked at again 6 years from now.

I believe they said they would fix running back after a pitch-out, which is why runners slip and fall if you try to send them back during a steal attempt.

Ya do know you can quick pitch and have a good catcher to combat the extra steps lol like the toxic bunch is the group thinking waaaaa its not fair he gets to take a extra step off first base boohoo

Yes we know but thanks for the input. Also, we don't cry about the extra step, they cry about the pickoff attempts as a result to those steps. 🤷

Maybe the size of a baserunnner’s lead could be related to his stealing attribute?

I like that idea

yes its a great idea hopefully SDS takes note of this

I love it when my opponent leads off. I feel like i have very high success rate of picking off my opponent. What usually works for me is I select my pitch and wait as long as possible before the game auto pitches, then throw over to 1st base. I’ve had numerous free outs this way.

Just this past weekend in my 12-0 run, I picked this guy off twice cause he kept leading off and the last out of the game was him getting picked off! Oh I absolutely loved it! Ofc he messaged me saying I was too scared to pitch lmao.

Am I the only one that's getting 4 of these posts in a row?

It won’t let me delete it

What I do now I hate wasting 20 min, I will take full time to pitch, then quick pitch the next pitch, throw a pitch out at some point. If the player steals on a fast ball release the pitch early it will be high, I only throw FB with those players. Having SS Bench helps a lot. It's funny because I steal a lot and pick my spots. I do not need the extra lead to steal a base.
