    How's that for a correction in the 'ol flyball/groundball ratio?

    Standridge gives up a homerun and now hes a crappy pitcher.

    Incorrect. You vastly increase the chances to score the 1 run, correct, but you are also very interested in scoring the runner you bunt to second. It serves 2 purposes.

    That very well could be, but recent history suggests he's done well as a Cincinnati Red.

    No, but his career numbers have.

    and it is an extremely small sample size aided by a high strand rate.

    you don't even know what BPIs and why they are important. They have the ability to tell you if the outcomes are based on a discernable set of skills or are a product of good fortune more than anything else. Standridge's BPIs suggest his performance outcomes are not even close to being sustainable.

    Depends on the situation. In a normal situation, the decrease in scoring chances for more than 1 run is pretty marginal. With the heart of your order coming up, I suggest bunting with Freel for Casey/Griffey was a defensible move.
