Dude...can it...

Hawkins has been raking all night and will be our 4 hole hitter next year. He’s got power and is not the guy you bunt with. Read a book.

You’re an idiot. It’s a tie game in the 8th... 1st and 2nd with no outs. This is not even debatable.

Son, a home run works as good as a bunt...

Bunting is successful 70+% of the time moving the runner

With the shift hitting is lower than ever in success moving a runner


You bunt, no question in a game with an opponent like this. One run will win this game

High school last official

Heavy interest in sunbelt and socon but wouldn’t play politics and take a fresh/soph walk on spot at school of choice

Fished and surfed my way through college instead

No coaching except for my kids when they start tball

Good for you Greene, competition pays off

Don’t post logic... tigernet trolls will disagree

its not a one size fits all situation. think we have 2-3 successful sac bunts THIS YEAR. hawkins, who as noted above, had all ready hit one off the wall.. and he prob hasn't been asked to bunt since little league. like it or not, its not the way most teams play the game now. its changed since your days as a backup RF in church league.

2-3’sac bunts this year is a reflection of being crappy at bunting

Hawkins just bounced off the wall so he is mathematically likely not to do that again tonight


No, you can't say one run WILL win this game.


Posted: Apr 16, 2019 9:36 PM
 

One run might win this game. It also might not. And that's just one problem with bunting in that situation in general. Giving up an out with 2 on and no out torpedoes your chance of a multi-run inning.

If its the 9th and UGA only has 1 more AB I think it becomes much more appealing.


Some interesting numbers in here...

You hunt 100% of the time in that situation. Doesn’t matter about past experience.

*bunt

I’m a hunter, how many times do you sit in the tree and take one you’d choose out of others. 1 out of 4? At best. You take a large female not because you like killing a population expanded female but because your odds of a taking a beyond button male are few.

you are a hunter. could have sworn you were at least a minor league coach.

Not bunting there is fine.

This isn't 20 years ago. Modern analytics have told us that many things that were done for years were incorrect. This is one of them.

Whether or not to bunt there is debatable.

Bigger picture in my opinion is chasing the same breaking pitch off the plate over and over and over. Makes pitching pretty easy.

How many times can we swing at that exact same pitch


Re: I was just gonna say

Too many

Monte has done everything wrong but that. Sharpe and bo were going to k anyways. If we were the type of team who could get a runner in with second and third with one out then yes bunt. The sad truth is we can’t. Period

Bunting isn’t difficult to coach when it comes to skill. Hold the fat part of the bat in the way of the ball...

Ego is usually the factor


I totally agree.

The totally inexcusable part is that not many Clemson batters can bunt. The inability to bunt has already cost us one game - against Notre Dame. Say what you want about JL. His teams could bunt.

Bunting or small ball wins more games then hitting, hands down.


Errors win ranked games. Bad throa to first, misread hop, move em over and score.
