Shift on Carlos Delgado … and he bunts to third for a hit. This is a guy that gets it. Maybe later in the day there’s not so much of a shift and it opens something up for him.
I once asked Jason Giambi why he didn’t bunt against the shift if for no other reason just to keep the defense honest and he looked at me like I was from Mars and said “I’m not a bunter.’’
Why not? It’s a skill every player should know how to do. It’s part of being a complete player.
