"steal more" setting?

PostFri Aug 28, 2020 8:57 am

Does anybody know if the "steal more" setting for hitters...
A) just increases the frequency of that runner TRYING to get the good lead/jump & his higher steal score before stealing
B) Attempts more steals whether the runner gets his optimal "lead/jump" or not
C) Still requires a probable success rate in sending the runner
D) Any/all of the above?

For instance, if a runner needs a 2 to get his optimal jump and an 18 steal rating -- but only has an 8 steal rating without the jump -- will "steal more" cause him to try low % steal attempts even when he doesn't get the good lead/jump benefit?
If anybody knows for sure, I'd be grateful to know too.Thanks!

I don't use steal more very often but I think it lets Hal take more risks overall, like trying to steal third too often.

Thanks, that sounds about right as I have had/seen some runners being thrown out trying to steal third when it didn't make a lot of sense to even try that.

Yeah, I see a lot of illogical attempts to steal third even without Steal More set. It would be nice if you can specify 2nd and 3rd aggressiveness separately.
