I know there are a lot of people that look up stats on this website. I'm interested in how many times we have had runners on second or third with no out, where we did not score the runner. This brings me to the point of bunting.
A lot of people call it small ball, and live in this fantasy that we are a run scoring team. A team that can just hit a single or a deep fly ball and score a runner. Please look at the scores from the games that we have played this year and realize that we need to do whatever it takes to win. We generally only win by one run because we come back late in a game. At the same time we usually win by one run.
I think if you look at the stats, that we would be well above .500 just by bunting. Why people are so opposed to bunting is beyond me. We are NEVER going to have a HR hitting team unless we get rid of the speed we have and get some power. That also includes getting rid of one of my favorite players, Billy Butler. We are not going to win games by more than one run, BUT, we can win them by smart baseball.
Also while I am talking about my favorite team, can someone get Escy to learn some balance at the plate. If I see him fall over into the left handed batters box one more time I may lose it.
Keep it real people.
