Punto Bunt

12 posts in this topic

You guys think Punto's bunt on Wed night was fair or foul. Even if it was foul I think he should have been running to first. He is a professional and this is what he gets paid to do. Mistakes like that should not be made.

It was fair, it bounced right of the top of the plate. He should have definately been booking it down to first base. At least he made up for it with his bases clearing double.

I think that is part of the reason he was so mad is that he was mad at himself for not running.......he got mad and had to yell at someone for his stupid mistake

Yeah, you could tell he was mad when he was pacing back and forth in the dugout after the fact.

It was a mistake that he is not likely to make again, given his reaction.

I dont know, you can argue both ways. It hit off the plate. He played it in foul ground. I think Punto needs to be punished for that. He's one of those guys that's not going to hit .300 or drive in 80 runs. He's out there to not make mistakes and play the way you're suppose to. It just shows me that his head isn't in the game and for an average player to pull somethin like that, he needs to be benched.

If you bench him, then Adam Everette plays, would that be better?

I guess I disagree. I think that we should play lamb over them both. Lamb over the last couple years has been around .300. Punto batted I believe just over .200 last year which is pathetic for a major leaguer.

And now Punto is on the DL and we have Alexi Casila back... frown

But at least Everett is over the Mendoza line now.

    • Looking at buying a tandem axle toy hauler ice house that can haul my Polaris General. Ive looked at Firebrand, Yetti, and Glacier. I like Firebrand the most but I want the Happi jac bed and they dont think General will fit.  Does anyone own a toy hauler with happi jac that will fit a full size side x side. Mine is 74'' tall and that's the issue.
    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.

    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.
    • Bingo.  Everything is going good so far.   Not that I would need to answer someone who wasted their vote but being tomorrow will be a great day I thought I'd drop you a line.     The so called Libertarians in silly town.
    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
