WTF was Derek thinking?

New, 28 comments

Or maybe it was Girardi. Either way, it was an incredibly dumb move. I didn't have a problem with him bunting on 0-0 and 0-1 with two runners on and no outs, but to bunt on 0-2 is idiotic.

1. Derek Jeter is a .317 career hitter, 2. he happened to hit .334 this year, 3. Jeter is fast enough to beat out GDPs that most other runners can't, 4. the count was f'in 0-2!

(Like I wrote in the comments last night, I'd get to the negatives today. Also worth mentioning is A-Rod's 0-8 with six K's. We need him to snap out of it.)
