Oh no, here goes Frank again, two men on and nobody out, and he's going to bunt.  Damn.
there's nothing wrong with that.

Oh, yes there is.  I'm trying to dig up the stats, but I believe that having runners on 2nd and 3rd with one out, is no better than having 1st and 2nd with no outs.  And the sacrifice attempt itself has a significant failure rate, that basically makes the whole attempt of no value to scoring.
Frank's insistance on sacrificing at inapropriate times is one of the reasons so many people think he's a poor tactician....

And an idiot...which is why F-Rod was brought in to a 5-4 game in the 9th...
