MiLB The Shift

SDS

Just wondering how everyone is enjoying this new title so far?

SDS

I have auto-shift off, I feel like shifting hurts the defense more than it helps

Me too. Wish everyone would.

Shift off here, i bunt cheese the hell out of the shift with Ozzie Albies FOTF card, he gets at least one single a game when shift is on, batting .335 in 970 plate appearances online!

80% of the time I bunt it foul, straight to the 3B/P or I pop up the bunt.

I'll just hit it over the shift instead 🤪

SDS

Keep the infield and change the OF to straight up or deep. That way you won’t get burned on an oppo ducksnort.

SDS

Agree with this. You should have to manually shift. It’s so frustrating to hit the ball in a place that would have been a hit if the infield was in a normal position. It’s one thing if the other player has the wherewithal to do it on their own but to have the cpu do it for you is lame

Yup. And it used to be only a handful of guys who were extreme pull hitters and got the shift on them automatically, now almost everyone gets a shift. Including all these wonderful minor league players who don't even have tendencies in the bigs yet. What, they might not even have official at bats yet.

SDS

I leave it on but turn it off whenever I see Albies and certain other hitters.

SDS

How can I manage my shifts? I always get burnt not thinking about it and a guy does oppo for a triple

You can use the D-pad in game to move fielders around, or in your options, you can turn off auto-shift.

SDS

I feel that bunting to beat the shift is cowardly and I will NEVER do it!! With that being said, I do believe a player should have to manually put the shift on. It should not be automatic.

SDS

I would say with the state of bunting in the game right now, it’s pretty cheesy to try and “beat the shift” by bunting with guys that are good hitters.

I mean, Albies is a switch hitter, FFS. Does he bunt much in real life? I never get to watch the Braves.

Especially when f**kers like me bunt against it. Huehuehuehue

Ozzie Smith is a great card for bunt cheese

SDS

They should ban the shift in MLB tbh. Then we wouldn’t have to worry about it anyway.

Press down on the d-pad before you select a pitch to throw.
