Stealing online vs anyone remotely good is impossible.

SDS

I think stealing needs a buff. It's not realistic that the pitcher can throw to first base 30 straight times because I took a one step leadoff. Pitchers should lose stamina or confidence which I thought in previous years was the case. I also believe in previous years you could only throw a pickoff around 3 times max in one plate appearance. What is this 30 pickoffs in one plate appearance just cause I want to take 1 step lead off. On top of the pickoff cheese even if I have a 1 step leadoff with 99 speed mondesi I get gunned out because with a quick pitch and a throw in the green with button accuracy is all you need to throw anyone out stealing.

I'm not just complaining that I cant steal bases, I also gun people out at an alarming rate. I dont remember last time somebody stole a base on me cause I get that perfect green throw almost every time and it's an automatic out.

Also I put good players in the title because yes, stealing is still easy vs players who are lost in the sauce and cant time their button accuracy throws or quick pitch with a speedy guy on base.

SDS

Stop leading off and I'll stop stepping off. The game already gives you one step by default.

SDS

Stealing was way too easy last year, I’m glad SDS actually did something about it.

SDS

Stealing actually takes thought, I like that. You got to pick your chances. Sandberg has stolen 28 bases in 29 attempts.

Hahah I knew this would be first comment "stop leading off and I won't throw" literally knew this comment was coming. How about you throw 2 or 3 times and if you dont get me then the game goes on. In MLB I dont think it's even allowed for a pitcher to throw 30 straight times to first base cause the player took a 1 step leadoff extra. If you cant throw me out on the first 20 attempts then fuhk off and play the game.

SDS

Its realistic for a super speedy guy to take an extra step leadoff it's what they do. It's not realistic to throw to that base 30 times.

It's pretty realistic for pitchers to keep speedy guys close. Because in real life if pitchers throw over a couple times, the runner doesn't just take the same lead everytime, He'll stay a little closer to the bag if he knows the pitcher is watching.

It's players like you that make online games unbearable. You guys that sit there with their 99 speed CAP on 1st base and just think I'm going to be fine with you taking an extra step especially with that speed. I can step off 30 times or throw over 30 but you still feel obligated to take another step. What does that say about you?

I was actually "threatened" with being reported earlier because of this exact situation. Lol Pathetic.

Yes but if that speedy guy can take 1 extra step and still avoid being thrown out at 1st then its something the pitcher has to deal with and perhaps do a pitch out or a quick pitch. Not throw 20 more times.

Except that doesn't happen in real life, it's a fact that a runner will stay closer to the bag if he knows the pitcher is watching. He doesn't take the same lead every single time,

You wanted to bring the real life argument into this, well that's real life, they don't take the same lead every single solitary time if a pitcher throws over.

Do what a real major league pitcher would do and do a pitch out and gun him out stealing.

It's already hard enough to throw strikes on the corners, now you want me to waste a pitch hoping that that was the time you decided to steal? Gtfoh!

The real question is, why do you feel obligated to take the extra step with a fast guy? If he was big and slow you wouldn't take it would you? So why does speed lead you to an extra lead?

I can throw over 100 times and never get you out. So the game is already in the runner's favor. So just sit there and take the extra bag with your speed if you do hit it in the gap.

What SDS needs to do is take away the extra lead all together.

Hey bud, I've got all day. You keep leading off, I keep stepping off. I'm not going to risk an error or pitcher stamina by trying to pick you off, because you know as well as I do a pick off usually isn't successful.

You think you're entitled to an extra lead? I'll step off.

SDS

The problem isn’t pickoff attempts, it’s how often players with a high steal rating get bad jumps.

SDS

The way you make it sound, it’s as if you truly believe you’re entitled to that extra-step. What a terrible argument you’ve tried to make btw. How about worrying about advancing your runner by getting a hit with the guy at the plate? Not cheesing your way to swiping an easy bag because of that giant lead. Pick-off cheese?? Lol smh.

What SDS needs to do is change the way lead offs are done. We have some analog/pressure inputs, it's past time they're put to use. Hopefully next-gen will see a change.

Its realistic for a super speedy guy to take an extra step leadoff it's what they do. It's not realistic to throw to that base 30 times.

If a known speedster kept taking too big of a lead when I pitched on college I would throw over majority of the time. Nearly impossible to pick someone off in this game unless they are actually committed to stealing prior to throwing over. Problem is in this game you can snap throw as soon as they take a step or vary your move.

That said stealing is what it should be as long as they allow quick pitching with balks off.

I can't stand your thought process in this and I wish you nothing but failure in this regard. If you don't want the whole sequence of pick offs, just don't take the extra step. Basically you're saying let me get to second base for free if you don't get me after 2 attempts. And when a guy doesn't give it to you (which is 100% normal and understandable) you come over here crying about it. You're the problem, not him.

SDS

Love playing that game. I’ll step off as many times as you take a lead. Or I’ll just hold the ball for different amount of times with the pitcher. Love that game even more. Then there is also the slide step. So many options to pick from!!!

SDS

OP playing the way you do is lame. I’ll just step off all day against Cheesers like you.
