Good Win, But I Have Some Issues With Our Announcers
Very solid win last night. There was one interesting play last night that really boggled the minds of Matt Underwood and Rick Manning. With 1 out and a man on second, Joe Mauer tried to bunt for a hit. Our announcers just went off on him and so did the crowd. Manning even said something along the lines of "Why would he do that? I can't remember a number three hitter laying down a bunt for a hit since Robbie Alomar." Exactly. He just proved his argument wrong right there. Mauer was trying to catch the defense off guard, and it almost worked. Everyone in the stadium expected him to try and swing normally. Why is it such a bad idea if literally no one expected for it to happen?
