If it were that easy, they probably would. Of course, maybe it is easy. What do I know, anyway?
And I do think they should bunt more often when the shift is on, if for no other reason than to keep the defense honest. I've seen Junior drop a bunt down the 3B line more than once for a hit when the shift is on.
