being the stat geek you are, please show me what games we (potentially) lost due to Tito bunting in certain situations
I’m not about to go through the entire year. And obviously the bunt or no bunt only puts you in a certain situation, so a win or loss following can’t be a given. But I’m saying where we bunted and it didn’t work out as a potential win because we lost an out and lowered the run scored expectations of a given inning.
In the last 3 weeks, we’ve had 2. Vs Boston 2 days ago with Freeman bunting, and Santana thrown out at second. And vs Texas when we gave up an out to advance Jose and Kipnis grounder out.
And I forget when but believe it was vs a great team when our pitching was awful and our offense was awful, where we sacrificed early and it worked. Problem is, it works for the expected 1 run which tied the game in like the 4th. We had a single and a walk, pitcher was struggling and we gave him an out. Then a groundout scored a run, and then a fly out. We lost by like 6...a chance at a big inning would’ve been nice.
