Disagree.  With the use of the infield shift so much these days, an easy bunt single down the 3rd or 1st base lines can be worthwhile.

I think he’s referring sacrifice bunts. Bunting for hits still makes sense for the most part.

So was NOT trading Vazquez, that was epically awful.




I totally forgot about that. :shock:


I remember someone crushing on him at some point. :whistle:

Given the original tweet - it sounds like they are talking about making bunting for hits an okay thing to do. And I agree with Mathguy that the shift makes that really, really attractive to just keep it in people's minds. Harper would do it with some success in the early years.

Braves buy out Julio Tehran's option, he might be a decent option for us next year if Strasburg walks.

wait, I thought you liked brown shirts?

:mg:


I think the road alternates are terrific but with teams like the Nats and ChiSox having dark tops, it'll look like SD is wearing home unis.

In the current environment I’m more concerned with them coming after me but that’s for a discussion over in politics.  :oldy:

I see that Arizona has made some changes to their uniforms too. No more stupid snake scale gradients and no more awful charcoal gray road uniforms. Now they’ve gone from having possibly the worst uniforms in pro sports to being merely kinda bland. A huge improvement.
