Am I playing my opponent or the algorithms?

Deadass serious. You want realism? How about not shifting automatically. How about not having 19 check swings never rules a swing.

Turn off auto shift. Problem solved.

The other, I have no answer for... That doesn't happen on higher difficulty though

Game is designed to favor one opponent over the other at specific times of the game. Nerfing hits, errors, rewarding garbage hits, forcing pitches down the middle etc.

Good example of a game nerfing hit with runners in scoring position

Look at the difference in the numbers.

I have autoshift off. I was talking why is it automatically on. Leave it up to the player. Everybody needs their hand held

Just played someone up 4-0 in the 8th... he had some hits but struck out 13 times before the 8th... all of a sudden I couldn’t get an out, he walks off 5-4... I feel like I didn’t have a chance even up 4-3 going to the ninth

Because you didnt have a chance as long as there was someone on the other end pressing buttons.
