I get mad at the whole idea of bunting after Arroyo walked on 4 pitches, and Stubbs took the first two for balls. He was going to get something decent to hit, and we wasted an out.... I blame Dusty, since if he doesn't know that Stubbs isn't a great bunter by now, he must be asleep. Even if it works, its not a great move.
