1st and 2nd with no outs is a bunting situation and Manny knows it. He even declared last season that while he doesn't believe in sac bunting with a man on 1st with no outs unless the pitcher is up or it is late in the game (which is the correct strategy), one should expect him to bunt with 1st and 2nd and no outs even if the meat of the order is up. The only reason not to do it is if the hitter is so on fire or rarely hits into DPs. For some reason Manny is under the delusion that Zimmerman in David Ortiz or Manny Ramirez.
