Maybe this goes deeper into game scripting but the way the CPU can turn double plays is absurd. It's a dead giveaway that the "there's no chance in hell you're winning this game" feature has been activated. A slow roller up the first base line, first baseman charges, throws off balance to second, short spins and fires a rocket back to the covering pitcher to get the DP on a decent runner. It's nonsense. Patch it.
haha dude, you gatta go to Franchise forum if you want feedback on CPU play...General Discussion is filled with online casuals. Personally I haven't seen this...gameplay seems to be consistent with quality of play....maybe you haven't tested sliders enough.
