I'm not a big fan of the shift in baseball, but I don't think it should be banned either. Let the manager put his fielders where ever he wants. I do think it is way over used. It totally blows my mind when I see the shift against a .230 singles hitter. How can that guy not bunt and take the free base. Mike Trout can roll the dice and get a positive result, but what's the difference for a singles hitter if he bunts away from the shift or loops it over the infield.
Anyhow, as much as I hate to admit it, the Yankees did the best job ever of beating the shift. The shifted positions actually let a guy score from first on an infield single. Check out the video . Really smart baserunning
