2008-10-22 16:30:00World Series Game OneNoel (Chicago): "BTW, no one has mentioned Bonds yet with respect to players that had the shift applied to them."

Or Darrell Evans either. I've seen it a bit against Jim Thome. I wonder if they shifted against guys like Ben Oglivie or Mike Easler, because frankly I don't recall if they did or did not. (Christina Kahrl)
