So I'm playing my Cubs franchise, and instead of simulating games, I've been using the quick manage feature for all three levels (MLB, AAA, and AA). Through this process, I've noticed some increasingly frustrating things:
-The amount of sac bunts is ridiculous. Sacrificing is just not a big thing anymore outside of pitchers, but yet, it's a constant theme in quick manage. Not only that, I've seen middle of the order hitters (I'm talking GOOD hitters) bunt runners over. Middle of the order guys NEVER bunt, let alone when there's guys in RISP and/or a team is down by multiple runs. Additionally, your own team will sac bunt even if you say "swing". I had my number 8 hitter bunt a runner over with one out and the pitcher on deck. Sure enough, the pitcher struck out and I didn't score a run. This is a pretty big problem.
-Stolen bases are also insane. I can't count the number of below average speed and stealing guys who have swiped bags (not to mention they're stealing on good catchers). This is a feature that I admittedly exploited last year, but it's ridiculous this season.
-There's no "double switch" feature.
-If an injury happens, the CPU subs in a player for you instead of your getting to choose who you wanted.
-There also seems to be WAY too many two out rallies. More than a few times, I've seen the first two guys of the inning go down, but then the next 5 or 6 hitter get on base (for both me and the CPU).
These details need some serious fixing.
