Because I watch only so often- and, not at all this ST- 'll ask others who have: do you think that the shift elimination has made much of a difference?
The positive- I have seen a few diving stops in the infield which results in more exciting plays.
The negative- I have seen several grounders right up the middle which were routine ground outs. The shortstop is playing one step off of second.
The reality-Teams aren't showing their shift strategies in spring training, but I am guessing once the season starts we will see left fielders playing a shallow right field for certain players.
I am hoping- They will put in shift rules for the outfield as well and stricter shift rules for infielders next year.
