I wasn't asking you to defend anything.
I was asking you to expand on your position.
Surely you have reasons why you don't think players should bunt if a pitcher has a no hitter. I'm curious what those reasons are.
I did not say "no bunting with a no hitter under no circumstances."
I stated the unwritten rules of no bunt are fine, providing the hitter is being played straight up. However, if the hitter is trying to hit against a shift, by all means lay down the bunt.
The unwritten rules date back to before shifts became as prevalent as they are now. Baseball has long had those unwritten rules that everyone knew about and played by. I happen to like those traditions and I believe they have a place in baseball.
However, that tradition is being turned on its head with all the shifts that are being used.
So, if teams want to remain true to the unwritten rule, then they need to play the hitter straight up and not shift in the ninth inning.
If a team wants to shift, then all bets are off in regards to the no bunt to break up the no-hitter.
