Appalling Fielding Ruins MLB 2K11

This is the third installment of the series that I have played, and it hasn’t gotten much better than 2K9 (with it’s god awful guess where the pitch is going batting scheme), and 2K Sports, and Take Two, have not improved anything from the previous year’s version.
You still don’t get any online play - despite the fact that their hockey and basketball games have that feature.
You still get the same graphics as before; this game looks exactly like MLB 2K9.
And you get an even worse defense than before - which angered me to no end. Far, far too often fielders will dive to the ground for NO reason whatsoever. This is prevalent in the outfield where I have the fielder fall down while chasing down a fly ball. The ball lands on the ground, and the AI gets a gift double or triple.
I’ve had fielders dive to the ground, get up, dive to the ground a second time, get up, and dive to the ground a third time - even through he‘s diving nowhere near the ball.
I’ve had a catcher wait for a pop up near home plate, then just before he catches the ball, he dives away from it, letting the batter get a double.
They say these guys a professional baseball players? With all that diving, I thought I had a team of really bad soccer players.
And all these foul ups only occur when I’m fielding; when the AI’s team is fielding, they are almost perfect; they run down fly balls and make the standard or spectacular catches.
This erratic defense takes all the fun out of the game. Why bother creating the greatest team if they can not make the simplest defensive plays? 2K Sports and Take Two has to fix this defect or the next installment will suffer.
Major League Baseball 2K11 ought to be sent back to the minors to get online play and better defensive skills. SKIP IT.
