Adam Morris On Why Bunting Is Dumb

From the man's post game thoughts at Lone Star Ball:

In the first inning, after Ian Kinsler drew a walk, Elvis Andrus showed bunt. He didn't bunt, and ended up doubling to right-center field, moving Kinsler to third. They both scored on a Josh Hamilton single. If Elvis gets the bunt down, the Rangers score 1 run. Because he didn't, they scored 2 runs. That's why I don't like the constant bunting with Elvis when Kinsler gets on.

Yes. This.
