"I knew it was possible to get the double," Carpenter said. "It's a good feeling. I can't deny that. If you hit left-handed in this league, they're going to shift you." Here's a guy with home run power that did the smart thing and bunted his way to a double. I hate the shift but I don't think we should make rules to do away with it. I think players can end the shift by doing exactly what Matt Carpenter did. BUNT!!! Hopefully, everyone in baseball sees this bunt and realize an easy double is better than a hard-swinging ground out!
