Because I only pay attention to the Reds I have no idea if all of the other clubs do the same, but with the exception of the pitcher, why do the Reds and Dusty continue to bunt or attempt to bunt guys over from 2nd to 3rd with no outs? Giving up outs on purpose is just maddening to me. Did it twice tonight hoping for a sac fly and obviously neither panned out. The next guy up K's. Call it poor execution and/or great pitching but I simply don't know why you don't put confidence in the people you put on the field to at least hit the ball to right side to move the runner over. He might even get a hit to drive a run in or move him to 3rd with still no outs. Yeah he could pop out or ground out to 3rd with no advancement but in either scenario you're still talking about execution. I hate the old school approach that Dusty (and maybe every other manager) employs. Stop giving away outs when it's not necessary. Maybe this is off the same page as lefties can't hit lefties, fast guys lead off and only one guy can close for a team. Tough loss tonight against good pitching. Which IMO is another reason not to put the opposition 1 out closer to the end of an inning.
