Bullpens and bunting

On FanGraphs yesterday, Dave Cameron published a piece taking down sacrifice bunting after Don Mattingly’s absolutely insane bunting habits on Tuesday night. It’s well worth your time, especially if you’re the sort of person that disagrees with me when I go on my rants about bunting (or if you agree with me and life affirmation). In any case, read it, and consider the points even if you disagree with them.

On a similar tangent, the Toronto Star takes on modern closer usage with some choice quotes from Keith Law. 

Embrace the revolution! Baseball is changing, the tactics must change as well!

About Pat Lackey

In 2005, I started a WHYGAVS instead of working on organic chemistry homework. Many years later, I've written about baseball and the Pirates for a number of sites all across the internet, but WHYGAVS is still my home. I still haven't finished that O-Chem homework, though.
