I think stealing needs a buff. It's not realistic that the pitcher can throw to first base 30 straight times because I took a one step leadoff. Pitchers should lose stamina or confidence which I thought in previous years was the case. I also believe in previous years you could only throw a pickoff around 3 times max in one plate appearance. What is this 30 pickoffs in one plate appearance just cause I want to take 1 step lead off. On top of the pickoff cheese even if I have a 1 step leadoff with 99 speed mondesi I get gunned out because with a quick pitch and a throw in the green with button accuracy is all you need to throw anyone out stealing.
I'm not just complaining that I cant steal bases, I also gun people out at an alarming rate. I dont remember last time somebody stole a base on me cause I get that perfect green throw almost every time and it's an automatic out.
Also I put good players in the title because yes, stealing is still easy vs players who are lost in the sauce and cant time their button accuracy throws or quick pitch with a speedy guy on base.
