Re: Should Dusty have asked Edwin to bunt?
Two ways to look at this.
I say no, because I know Encarnacion is capable of doing what he did. I also know that he has a good bat. BUT...
Dusty has no idea who he's dealing with yet (though some would say he exhibits this behavior no matter where he is) and watching Edwin this spring and in the first 1.8 games of the year, you might want to not take a chance with him. He's been a walking mistake thus far.
Yeah, it was still a boneheaded decision,but I think I can understand it in this situation.
