I play all fielding opportunities, and about 5-7 times a game the ai bunts for a hit. They even bunt with the best hitter in the lineup. What's worse is when they do it with 2 outs and the bases loaded and my guy doesn't even try to go get it, instead he covers home like an idiot when its literally 2 feet in front of him. Its not just the bases loaded, any runner that's heading to third, he does the same thing.
Yeah - the locked in catcher thing on the bunt totally blows. If you let me move my guy, I could make the play. But I guess I need to cover home and not move 2 steps, make play, and then cover home.
My guy has pretty decent stats for Arm Strength and Arm Accuracy without my gear bonuses. So I get the bunter out at first about 50% of the time now. But every time that I don't, I can't help but think about how nice it would be if that fancy glove and the other fancy stuff I have on my guy would have made a difference. It's like a slow, painful torture.
