Is anyone else noticing a huge disparity when it comes to speed? It seems like every game, i hit a ball in the gap or to the corner and the average speed fielders (guys like Soto, Judge, Brantley etc) are running down balls and firing them to 2B as my 80-90+ speed guys are rounding 1B and barely beating the throw.
In my last 3 games, i've been thrown out at 3B or home trying to tag on balls hit deep with 75+ speed guys. Maybe its just me, but it looks like everyone is just running really slow.
Yeah this is definitely a thing this year. You have to judge how the ball is going roll and really pay attention, etc. It pays to check the fielder's arm strength and accuracy. Also keep in mind that fielding rating modifies speed rating. So guys like Clemente get to everything.
