Personally I don't bunt there because Young is very hittable, but I can understand it with Stubbs and his high K rate.
If it were most anyone else in the Reds' lineup, I wouldn't be supportive of bunting there. But Stubbs' skillset doesn't lend itself well to advancing runners a high percentage of time.
