Barry doesn't need to bunt. He's the best hitter in baseball. Maybe A-Rod was trying to get out of his season-long slump by bunting. It's not something he does on a regular basis.
And for the guy that said he doesn't want to see Barry hit .400:
I understand if you don't like him as a person, but I question your reasoning. It's a shame one of the best hitters in baseball is hated by so many peopole, for no legitimate reason.
And he's definately no Jim Edmonds. He's been near the top of the batting championship race for the past 3 seasons. If anybody can do it it's him or Pujols. It was funny looking at the boxscore today: 1 AB in a full game. LOL. People won't pitch to him, and when they do he hits a HR. 400 is a very real possibility this year. He's going to continue to break most of the single-season power hitter records (BB, OBA, SLG, OPS, HR, etc) most of which were set by him in the past few years.
