Tom Verducci grounded out into a shift in a media baseball game today

HardballTalk

Last week Tom Verducci floated an idea that was pretty darn harebrained about possibly outlawing defensive shifts because they’re allegedly unfair to hitters. We tore that one apart pretty well and moved on. But today circumstances force us to be reminded of it. For the Boston and New York media met in a media baseball game this afternoon. And this happened:

It is my hope — and given how baseball scribes tend to operate, my full expectation — that they put the shift on against Verducci simply to taunt and annoy him. Now, if he ever raises the issue of the shift again, he can be shouted down as being motivated by personal feelings and emotions and things.
