I under the odds. Odds are great when there are not variables. Probably 90%+ of the time the batter does not care about the shift. In the WS it is a whole another story. The odds don't factor in that variable which is the most important.

Again, I didn't see this play but the logic is entirely from the perspective of the infield and what happens with each of the batters choices. IOW the fielding team doesn't make decisions based on what they think the batter will do, but on the overall odds of the outcome of the batter choice - if that makes sense? i.e. I know he can bunt, but the worst outcomes of a bunt single/sacrifice bunt is far better than the best outcomes of a hit through the infield or to shallow right.

This is the crazy part. They pitched him outside the whole time at bat. The pitch he punched to the right side was low and away. Does not get any easier than that.

That's just poor execution.

Nice to see that still going on. I have not seen kids playing BB in the street for the past 20 years.
You need to get out more!

fwiu hitters nowadays are being told t hit for HR every time (you see it with the yankees a ton) because a regular hit can lead to a double play which is worse than a strikeout-im sure there are more reasons than this as well

This is not how degrees work.
Which part? The angle formed by the intersection between the 1st and 3rd baselines (ie the foul lines) is 90 degrees. If you play only to the left (or only to the right) of second base, the angle between the 2 foul lines is now 45 degrees.

the playable part of my backyard is about 30'x45. All summer long it's one giant wiffle-ball tournament. The strike zone is a patio chair, and there are a ton of ground rules. I would assume that I break up about 3 fights per weekend :)
Man can you make that whiffle-ball dance. We would play in the driveway between the houses. End on the driveway was a fence and of course over that was a HR.

In a turn of events that should surprise nobody, the Astros have once again have been accused of illegally stealing signs.
