    Exactly! Last night the Reds were down by 2. A homerun is not exactly what they needed. They needed someone to get on base, whether it be a bunt or not.

    I've seen Griffey bunt in the 9th inning many times and a couple this year when we've been down by a run or two. Dunn on the other hand I believe doesn't know how to bunt.
