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.

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
