The way they set up the defense, he could drop a bunt anywhere left of the pitcher for a hit most anytime he wants. If he does this a few times, they might shift back, which would open up the right side of the infield again.
and about the Bonds hitting .400 fad, i reall think that Peter Gammons went a little over the top (dont get me wrong, i like Peter Gammons). i mean it could happen if Bonds went mostly for singles and decided to sacrifice a large part of his power, but thats not what will help the Giants and Phillipe Alou cos even if Bonds does decide to hit singles and reach .400, it would almost be the same as walking him and we all know how eager opposing teams are do that . the pitchers would gladly pitch him outside and give up the single because they can make the next one or two outs with relative ease. so even though Bonds does have the bat speed and the awesome eye needed to hit at least get close to .400 down the stretch, he prolly wont cos hes significantly more valuable to the Giants hitting balls into the water and letting people jump after them
