Should The Cardinals Just Walk Ortiz From Now On?

Big Papi [2]When you have the best offense in baseball, scoring 57 more runs than any other team in the regular season, the idea of an opponent pitching around one player to keep the lineup at bay seems ridiculous.

However, if you are the St. Louis Cardinals in the 2013 World Series, why would you let the Boston Red Sox’s best hitter, David Ortiz, keep beating you?

In fact, given the way Ortiz is hitting, the Cardinals should consider giving him what is known as the Barry Bonds treatment. Pitch around him and hope you can get him to chase something—worst-case scenario being a measly walk.

If that doesn’t do anything for you, Jenny Dell of NESN can help illustrate my point about Ortiz’s amazing series performance.
