VIDEO: Dustin Pedroia Steals 2nd & 3rd On Same Pitch Vs Ortiz Shift


…a.k.a. “How To Beat The Big Papi Shift” by Dustin Pedroia.

Defensive shifts in baseball are great because they make David Ortiz angry and baseball purists cry. However, where opposing defenses see advantage, Pedroia sees opportunity.

It’s cute how Angels pitcher Cory Rasmus thinks he is going to outrun Pedroia to 3rd.

Pedroia is all about heart and hustle and, unlike Papi, would never taint his body with steroids. Amphetamines, maybe, but not steroids.

When we get a chance to reflect on this Red Sox season with the commemorative DVD, we well most definitely see this play. Then again, we will most likely see only this play on that DVD.
