May seem harmless enough now but the reds have to be the worst team ive ever seen at laying down sac bunts. In the playoffs games are decide by 1 to 2 runs usually so this needs to be fixed

That's not something you just fix. If you want good bunters in the bigs, you need to start stressing it from A-ball on up.

As fans of the Reds we tend to dissect our team and magnify everything that's short of perfection. Sure we appear to be a bad bunting team in general. I have EI so I see my share of none Reds games and I look at those types of things. Believe me all teams have the same issues. I live up in Yankee country and talking to Yankee fans daily you'd think they were 10 games outta first.

MLB players that can bunt are few and far between. It's sad really. Especially for NL pitchers.

I'm more worried about our inability to hit/get on base, personally.

Agreed. Our offense has been anemic since the Pirates series. It has been worse than that since Sunday too when Burnett dominated us.
