I can understand why they're not automatically putting you on base and making you either get a hit or take a walk. But why, after I get that base hit and then have to steal a base, are they putting me up against a quick count if either 3-2 or 3-2. How in the blue h377 are you supposed to steal a base when the hitter is going to swing at the ball? Also, if I magically get a good count, why is there ALWAYS a person on the base in front of me?
Or, once in awhile my batter decides to take an extra base or two; thus putting me in ANOTHER non-stealing situation?
