That squeeze "attempt"


Recommended Posts

let's see... runner on third one out. 2-0 count against a pitcher with command issues. Trout on deck.


Double play is extremely unlikely

Groundout scores a run, Trout up 2 out

Sac fly scores a run, Trout up 2 out

Single scores a run, brings up Trout 1 out

Walk brings out Trout with 1 out, runners 1st and 3rd

Strikeout or popup brings out Trout with 2 out, runner still at third

On one hand, if it worked, it would have been awesome.


On the other hand, Aybar is mentally retarded.


the chances were really low that it would work because aybar is a retard at squeeze plays.  scioscia doesn't know his teams strength and thats his downfall as a manager.

Even if he did come through, it was a dumb decision.

He could have popped out and turned it into a DP as well.

There is no way you can justify risking taking the bat out of your best hitter in that situation.

Especially when your closer is struggling and you need more than one run to win the game.

Yes. Never. 


Give me ONE example of a clutch bunt by Aybar, that either successfully scored a runner coming home or moved one into scoring position.

take a look at clutch stat splits and his SH numbers. He has had clutch situation bunts.
