Players, coaches, fans no longer have the patience for small ball. They prefer the grandiose HR. It's no longer instilled in the player at a young age. Daddy, coach teaching, preaching HR's. It's similar to the ground game in football, fans want to see the bomb. 45-43 scores. They would be bored out of their skulls watching a 7-3 football game and quickly go to their I phone for a fix It's really a shame, no patience.

I agree they like the HR, the dunk, the hail Mary etc. etc. But in this particular game lay down the bunt so we can win

Sure, technically...I was talking about a swinging ground out opposite the runner...

My overall point was that it is hard to understand keeping the bunt on after two strikes, which we did twice last night and I believe we fouled them both off for the out...we just haven't been very effective this season bunting, at least from the games I've watched.

The irony of this thread is that with CDS the complaining about small ball was through the roof by the time he was done...now we're complaining we can't bunt.

Kind of funny.

Bunting is and always seems to be the most difficult thing to pull off at every level. Itís so frustrating to me. Been to spring training with Cardinals multiple time (as a fan of course) and thereís an infield only set up for two purposes....situational baseball and bunting. And hours are spent doing both. But in live game situations itís seems bunting is a lost art....a very frustrating think for sure....

Happy for him. Seems like a team guy who gets every ounce out of his physical abilities.

On another note, does anyone know if Stapp is still hurt? I know he had a scary looking injury in the first SEC series and I think he came back for a game or two later in the season. He played well in the non conference season, but I hadnít heard if heís not fully healthy or the staff is more comfortable with Chinea at this point.

He returned last 3rd of the season, got a start in the midweek at 3B seems like...but really hasn't been involved since.

His conference BA is .059. His play in the field and his speed on the base paths put him behind Chinea. Injury really set him back. Much like Luc Lipcius at first base.
