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.
Anyone else annoyed with cpu bunting while catching
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.
I’m a two position player and I’m a pitcher and catcher. So every time I’m catching the ai’s just bunt and I need to get pop up but I can’t. So what should I do
The bunting is ridiculous whether playing 1st, 2nd, or 3rd. Yes, 2nd. You wouldn’t think you’d have to deal with bunts as a 2nd baseman. The AI bunts in the dumbest situations. Just today I had my player on 3rd with bases loaded and 2 outs. You guessed it, the batter tried to bunt his way on and made the 3rd out. I really wish there was a way to turn bunting off. It’s not very prevalent in MLB and should be much less prevalent in the game. I only play shortstop and the outfield to avoid the stupid bunting. 3rd base is my favorite position but it’s frustrating because there are only a couple defensive chances per game and 1 is guaranteed to be a bunt.
I get annoyed when the CPU bunts while I'm throwing a no-hitter
This violates one of the unwritten rules of baseball. You don't bunt to break up a no-hitter.
