For all their talent and skill I have always thought that major league'rs were not that great at fielding bunts even when they did spend a lot of time practicing it in spring training. How about bucking the trend and using the time saved but not practicing the defense of bunts and use it to actually get good at bunting themselves.


A skill they will use even less? Twins pitchers had 22 plate appearances last year. How many of those were even bunting situations? Half?

I guess I assumed that the time spent on the bunt coverage was for the entire infield and not just the pitchers.My comment about practicing bunting for hits.was not directed at pitchers but the batters.

If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
