Question for franchise users

I play exclusively manage mode and it's a small sample size but I've seen more aggressive baserunning leading to some runners running into sure outs in my first few games.

Is it just me or are others seeing this?

I've seen at least one asinine baserunning blunder by the cpu in every single game I've played leading to easy outs.

I’ve seen ONE in all the games I’ve played. Certainly not EVERY game.
I looked at the replay and it was a speedy runner and I had thrown to my cut off man and the runner continued on. I asked my 79 year old buddy who plays MOM exclusuvely and he hasn’t seen anything out of the ordinary. Do you adjust sliders?

Re: Question for franchise users

I'm not seeing it every game, but there are times the CPU is more aggressive than I would be in a given situation, but its not happening enough for me to think there needs to be an adjustment.

I've run into my fair share of "easy" outs, so its nice to see the CPU has the same mental lapses that I do at times.

Re: Question for franchise users

Iíve seen 3-4 through 23 games of my franchise. Itís always been singles to CF that the CPU tries to stretch into a double. The funny thing is, the CPU caught me not paying attention the first few times. I nailed Baez last night though.

I do not adjust sliders.

Re: Question for franchise users

I had one really bad one the other night where Nicky Lopez of the Royals ran into an easy out trying to stretch an RBI-single into a double. It came with two outs, so it was an inning ending play. I'm not sure if that could explain it or make the CPU somehow more aggressive. Both of my baserunning sliders (Steal Ability and Frequency) were at the default 5 setting.

I've never seen the CPU make an absolute boneheaded play like this on the basepaths in all of my time playing The Show (been playing since The Show 14).

What I've noticed is ground balls down the line between the first/third baseman and the bag the batter tends to try for a double regardless of running speed.

I'm using a relocated Pirates franchise and my catcher Stallings has a speed rating of zero. He thinks he's Lou Brock on a ball hit down the line. I'll play more games before reaching a final conclusion but that appears to be a programming glitch.
