* 20% of the time the bunt isn't successful
* The % of a productive out happening anyways
Ozzie Guillen just had a press conference saying they aren't running enough or bunting enough lol.
You have the opposite problem!
Although they were 7 for 8 stealing bases today (that's very good) it still only helped them score 1 one. They reached base 11 times.
Since the strike, 6 times a team has laid down 5 sac bunts in a game. Those teams are 3-3 in those games, and in each win, they won because they didn't allow more than 1 one in each game.
I figure in the future once a new wave of coaches take over they will start managing smarter. Small ball seems to deeply ingrained in some of these older guys who were brought up when the data wasn't available.
Also, moving this thread over to sabermetrics now that it has been discussed
