And you won't find a bigger Billy Hamilton fan than me. We can all agree we'd be ripping him for bunting with two strikes if he did that with the Reds and it didn't work, right?
If it doesn't work, sure. Heck, even if it does work, it is a bad move. But in the minor leagues, he may have some sort of "bunt this many times" mandate and chose to use one there.
