"If he grounds into a DP, oh well" <--------- I know you wouldn't have been saying that had it actually happened. And a runner on third with two outs is way different and much more difficult to get a score on than runners on second and third with one out.
On the rest of your points, I don't disagree with any of them.
I liked the bunt call as well. You have a quick vet, that can bunt. With the bunt you put pressure on the defense. You make them make the play. It was the right call.
