Has SDS ever addressed why baserunners randomly stop/start while stealing?

SDS

Just watching a content creators video and saw it happen which is what makes me ask.

I know we're all well aware if it, but has anyone from SDS actually commented on how baserunners stumble or randomly stop and start while stealing? It's obviously not something they've intended to have happen as the animation is always clunky and broken, but it seems to happen to me or my opponent once every 2-3 games.

It's because SDS is terrible at their job. They have no competition and they have no incentive to improve the game. It's just all cosmetic [censored] year after year.

I had Lou Brock, Mr 99/99 - do the stand upright thing before jumping of and being about 8ft short.

Maybe that animation should be reserved for the 1/100 times.

but i never steal with anyone under 80 speed or steal and i see it way too much.

What annoys me more is the button delay with throwing out tho.

But if you don't steal 2nd base, the game will force a double play... no matter where the pitch is thrown. I'm 1000000% convinced that they've programmed that into the game to screw you over. Doing the USA conquest map, I should'nt be grounding into 3 DP's in a game. This game is dog sh!t
