The thing is, teams shift on crappy hitters. The other day, Sandy Leon was leading off an inning and there was a shift against him. It's ridiculous that lousy hitting Sandy Leon wasn't ready and willing to take a free base. And, yeah, if he was practicing bunting it would be pretty much a free base.
