SDS: Request: Catcher defensive statistics: CS and SBA

SDS

I would really like to know my catcher's defensive stats, particularly their ability to control the running game... Can you please add the stats for catchers: caught stealing and stolen bases against, and maybe CS%.

Also, can pitcher pick-off's be recorded as well?

I feel like if the players themselves are so well defined by their ratings, then more statistics which would allow the gamer a more complete understanding of his players should be incorporated. Sure, not everyone gets deep into statistics, but for those who do, might as well make a more thorough accounting available.

If I am somehow mistaken and any of these stats are actually kept, please show me the secret to finding them. If they are not, who else agrees and thinks they would be a welcome (and relatively simple for SDS) addition to the 2021 game?

I'd like to see this for sure!Would also be an ok stat to have recorded for pitchers.

They also need to refresh the advanced statistics. Lots of filler & trash stats that aren't even optimal to use, while also missing more relevant ones. Just a complete and utter mess, I've been staring at the same compiled garbage of stats for years and they don't switch it. If you're going to be substandard at gameplay at least excel at everything else. But IGN will give the game a 9 and the casuals will praise it annually. Alright alright I'm done here, same ol' spiel.

SDS

caught stealing and stolen bases against can be deceiving as they're at the mercy of the pitcher's windup - especially a game like The Show - i.e. if you don't use the stretch for instance..

a stat that could be applied to catchers would be 'Pop time ' the time it takes for them to get up and release the ball - they could theoretically adjust the speed of animations for catchers w good pop times.. - used w the Arm Strength..

Jeviduty - not sure what stats you are referring to that aren't optimal to use and which relevant ones you feel are missing.

cheechoo98 - The underlying assumption I made is someone who plays the game as it is played professionally will be able to have a true understanding of a catcher's ability to stop stolen bases. The gamer controls the running game with the pitcher and catcher in tandem. For the average gamer on here, they are not playing professional baseball, rather, they are speeding their way through the game and often little attention is paid to the running game from the pitcher's side of the equation and they can only hope their catcher comes up with a dynamite throw every once in a while to cut down a runner. Those people will have a poor CS% even with Pudge.

I agree here. I'm somewhat well-versed in advanced stats and none of the important ones are featured. There are however, about a dozen or more stats I've never even heard of.
