SDS Presents: The Return of Run down cheese!

SDS

That’s right folks, intentional run down cheese is back and better than ever! Played a moron in BR who intentionally got himself in two different rundowns and was safe both times. I wasn’t even close to throwing him out.

SDS

I hate that.

SDS

Do you have throw canceling on? I have very good success faking a throw and letting the player run right back into the tag. Should help.

SDS

Run him back to the previous base or throw him out sliding into the next base. There is no rundown cheese when it's easy to stop it. Quit throwing back and forth

SDS

Throw cancel. Worst case they just don’t advance.

SDS

Wait runners can still retreat on a stolen base attempt? Wasnt that supposed to end in '19?

They can...but it's highly ineffective.

SDS

Yea if runners are safe in rundowns, that’s on you...

SDS

A lot of times, just holding on to the ball and running towards the base runner will get him.
These players think they are smarter than you and rely on making you react to their idiotic play. Don’t react. Play fundamental baseball and most of the time you’ll beat them.
