Defense is unrealistically terrible this year. Fielders make errors on easy ground balls at a much higher rate than in real life. Also, players take too long to get up (they literally take their time when the ball is in play!!) and too long to throw the ball.
They need to fix this.
It's funny because 2019 started out the same way, ridiculous errors all the time on routine easy play's ... BUT they fixed it with a patch, so I'm really surprised to hear it's back again...
