Will the Yankees ever sacrifice bunt??

Postby acsguitar » Tue Jun 07, 2005 3:14 pm

This is rediculous for a few years now that the Yanks haven't been as good as they should I've been getting ticked at Torre for not bunting people over..

last night again he doesn't bunt someone over with no outs man on first and cano up...

its rediculous.

Cano tried on his own last night in the ninth with their leadoff hitter, williams, on first. Turnbow threw one in the dirt, williams got to second, and cano tried to lay one down again. Then sojo talked to cano and he started swinging away. The commentators thought cano's attempt at bunting was his own doing and sojo told him not to.

I don't know of anyone who would put up with the boss' sh** quite like torre does.

There's a guy named Womack who is pretty good at bunting, from what I hear. Let's not forget, this is the AL, different style of play. Although I wish it were the NL, I hate the DH, if a guy can't play the field then too bad. But that's another thread altogether.

I personally think sac bunting on a team like the Yankees is just flat out stupid. For one, you have a pitching staff who could allow ten more runs after you go up 1-0. For another, you have enough hitting to choke a mule. It doesn't make sense 90% of the time for most teams, and it makes even less sense for the Yankees.

First, I don't think it's ever smart to bunt to third... I don't care the situation. Even if I did, you bunt even when most of your players don't have the experience bunting to be sure they can succeed?

Sorry, acsguitar. I'm mostly a fan of your Yankees opinions but you're off on this one and so are a couple more people here. There is no such thing as a rookie (Cano especially) bunting on his own in the 9th inning down by 1. Torre gave him the signal, it's obvious. Second, when the hell do you bunt a guy over from 2nd to 3rd with Nobody out down by 1? You're wasting an out, and thus a chance to drive him in on a single where he may not get to third anyway if the bunt is bad. I say with a runner on 2nd and 0 out, down 1 on the road you swing away and try to not only tie the game, but maybe get something going and take the lead. Especially with the top of the order coming up. Sojo probably told him to stop trying to bunt since Williams got into scoring position on his own on the wild pitch. I have no problem with that...

Torre's management of the bullpen and the lineup this season is a completely different issue and when I think about it, it makes me... :-P .... Yepp there I go again throwing up in my mouth.
