Should you turn off auto baserunning in MLB The Show 23?

Auto Baserunning is best suited for players who just like hitting the ball and not having to worry about anything else. It does open up more room for error as the CPU could make some boneheaded decisions like sending a player home when they'll easily be out at the plate.

Luckily, the ability to turn off this setting is simple, and if something like that happens, they can just flip it off. The same goes for things like Auto Fielding, Throwing, and Sliding.
