ISN'T MIKE SCIOSCIA SUPPOSED TO BE SMART?:

Why don't you just have Carrasco walk Ortiz & pitch to Manny?

I doubt the shift is the right play when a single will beat you. Ortiz is smart enough to slap a grounder to the undefended half of the infield.

The walk loads the bases, with two out and no need for the double play I'd rather pitch to Ortiz.
