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...
