Of all the issues we’re familiar with from 19, nothing infuriates me more than the base running miscues that are out of your control.
Man on first with one out. Mike Schmidt hits a liner down the right field line that the right fielder clearly won’t get. Should be an easy double. I hold L1. Runner stands still looking at the ball. I continue to hold L1. He finally starts to run, reaches and rounds 2nd with the speed and urgency of a 300 lb asthmatic, and then while I’m STILL holding L1, he decides to turn back and stand on 2nd! Schmidt is already standing on 2nd by the time this dumbass decides to turn around and stand there.
Opponent eventually tosses the ball to 2nd while I hopelessly watch the runner get tagged out. Now with a runner on 2nd and two out Jimmie Foxx lines out to center. Rally over.
Drives me nuts. I’ve tried looking through the base running options and all we have is assist and auto. Is there no way to turn the idiotic AI off completely? I know you can manually select bases too, but even that gets screwy sometimes.
