Also, is there any downside to me shredding the stuff sitting now other than fuel and tractor time? It is quite high since it was not baled last fall. Not sure if they even got the firs cut? Would it inhibit new grass growth if I shred it any more than if I don't?
All you will lose by shredding it is the feed value currently in the grass, which at this point is likely to be low, and which will be recycled as the cut litter breaks down anyway.
Cutting it will restart quality growth, which won't otherwise happen until it is grazed or trampled or rots standing following warm/wet conditions.
being a good operator simply increases the chances that the owner of your lease block will call it a good farm and sell it for way more than it's worth.
