  • Stark story on the "Shift"...

    For those who subscribe Jayson Stark has an interesting story today on "shifts" in baseball. Traces the history of it, talks to players, front office types and even analytical folks.

    He says there seems to be an agreement from everyone, including the stat-folks that something needs to be done.

    Talks with Freddie Freeman about simply "hitting to the open area" and as Freeman says if it was that easy, he'd do it more often, but the pitcher and what they are throwing have a say in what he can do or try to do.

    Interesting reading.
