    to

    bunt

That's an amazing statement."

    Problem with the bunt is that it results in a walk to Votto. I'd swing away.

    Good grief they've sucked at bunting all year. WHY keep trying in a situation like this?

    If you KNOW they can't bunt, why keep trying to bunt?

    For someone who loves to bunt so much, Dusty's team sucks at bunting.

    Dang, if Zach ever wants to stay near the top of the order he needs to learn to bunt.
