C'mon, you read my posts. Get motivated!!! This game is still great. If shy, PM here (to tor) or to https://www.facebook.com/aaron.s.little.1. Look forward to hearing from y'all!
I do know that in this game, speed is essential. There is no substitute for speed. When I get a single, stealing second is almost automatic. I usually have an 80-90% chance of stealing third as well. I usually take a pitch, steal second, then start the runner and try to score him on a base hit. This means I value Vision most, Coverage to a lesser extent, then Power. I want to get that hit train rolling. As far as Defense, I'm putting the percentages you offered to work, to see if it improves my defense, especially in the area of limiting stealing and cutting down runners. Fortunately those stats are available. I can tell you that it gives me a huge advantage against most teams. When you can steal at will and your opponent can't, that means he'll have to get a slew of hits without hitting into DP's, or hit lots of home runs. It's more fun to hit and run and steal bases anyway. Seeing a hit and run executed properly is a thing of beauty.
