I feel like the hitting is decent right now. But the fielding and assisted baserunning is atrocious. I continue to see routine ground balls being bobbled and misplayed (by me and CPU). Im not sure the answer to “make fielding matter for cards” is making the less-than-good fielders routinely misplay routine plays.
And I keep having runners thrown out at 2B because they don’t run on line drives to the OF that end up falling (not an issue in previous games, if I recall). Baserunning instincts (and starts on hits and stolen bases) are bad. Also, not that this is necessarily bad, but I’ve noticed CPU baserunning is crazy aggressive, more than in past
