I know some of you might read this as reactionary. Seriously though. Tonight the Reds had Billy Hamilton on second base -- already in scoring position easily with a guy with such speed. They had Shin-Soo Choo at the plate, easily their second best hitter, and hitting against a RH to boot. So what does Choo do? He squares up to bunt. Fortunately, the pitcher helped him out and walked him. Then comes BP. Runners on first and second now, no outs. What does he do? HE BUNTS TOO!? And then gets called out for interference.
I'm sorry. I don't normally post threads like this, but you guys have got to help me out. I just see no way having two of the team's best hitters bunt back to back in the 7th inning with the fastest human on the planet on second makes any sense whatsoever. If you can explain to me why it does, I'm all ears.
