If you let him swing, your just asking for an inning-crippling double-play. That's the 2nd time I've seen that happen with Mauer this week. At what point does Gardy realize that no matter Mauer's track record, laying down a bunt in that situation is the SMART thing to do?
    Gardy might also have noticed that Mauer is not having a career season.

    [QUOTE=glunn;247759]Maybe Mauer should bunt here?[/QUOT

    Was just texting with my son about that. .260 singles hitter, 1st and 2nd nobody out, I run game. Of course you bunt! Gardy should be fired on the spot!

    I would actually prefer a 3 hitter who nobody would dream of wanting to sacrifice.

    RE Willingham's non-catch just now, LA announcer says, "That ball almost hit him on the toe."

    Not that bad but you are right -- Gardy still sees Mauer as the teams best hitter, and #3 hitters don't bunt, meanwhile people here at TD wonder if Mauer should move down a few slots, have wondered for several weeks

    I thought Dozier should have swung at the second called strike, outside part of plate, perfect to move Santana over. That was key there.

    Hard to complain about a walk, but I actually had the same thought.

    I wasn't kidding. I honestly think Molitor has a better chance of getting a hit than Florimon, as long as he can make it to 1st.
