2010-07-13 16:30:00All-Star GameChristina who was it (Oscar Gamble, perhaps) who said that for the Yankees, old timer's day is seeing Joe DiMaggio and Mickey Mantle take the field, whereas for the Padres it's Nate Colbert coming into the clubhouse and trying to sell you a used car? (Steven Goldman)
2008-10-22 16:30:00World Series Game OneCK, if you go back that far, aren't you getting into an era where hitters were more willing to take the single? The shift happens because the benefit of the longball is greater than the singles lost to the shift or gained by slapping the ball the other way. That's been the case in the last 15 years, but maybe not before. Easler and Ogilvie, just to name two guys, may have been pull hitters, but not to the extent the guys of today are. So no shift was warranted, or advisable.

The biggest lefty pull hitter I can think of from my childhood is Oscar Gamble, and I don't remember any shifts. (Joe Sheehan)
