Yup they had 4 OF's, with a 5th in short RF. He should've laid down the bunt. The closest guy was the SS playing on the right side of 2B. There were really only 2 infielders, as the 2B was playing in short rightfield.

I don't understand why he doesn't do that every single time. That would get them to at least cut down on putting the shift on.

Honestly, if he hit the bunt just right and got it past 3B, he could almost go for 2. The LF was backed right up against the wall, while the SS was pretty far to the right of the 2B bag. I think the pitcher would be the closest one to make a play.

If Wily Mo didn't have such a big body, just looking at his face you wouldn't take him for 24 IMO. He looks like he's 20/21 at most.

Yeah, I remember he pulled that trick a couple times last year but not very consistently.

Pretty good at bat by Gonzalez but nothing to show for it. We have to start leaving so many guys on, especially when Clement is pitching.

Haha, 4 OF's and Papi bangs one off the wall for a double. I love it.
