Venting bout bush league RS

0-0 game bottom of 3rd opponent gets 2 ground ball single that were solid hits. Lindor on 1st and gwynn on 2nd Posey comes up to bat and I work work him to 3-2 count he takes off double steal and lays down a drag bunt toward 3rd and never stops after I had thrown ball to first..Posey beats throw somehow to 1st and he scores with gwynn and Lindor to third.

0-0 great game til that point...

Bush league? Sounds like you werent fast enough and he got ys with the small ball

It's cheese to go second to home on ground balls but just throw cancel and throw home.

I had already released the ball as he turned and of course the 1st baseman lolligagged before throwing back home

It's a glitch animation issue cant throw home in time after throwing to first..becauseof his lolligagging.

0 outs 2and to home and 1st to 3rd...on a 3-2 count with Posey and his 35 bunting ability

.... It sounds like he played some smart baseball, but reading this you can tell you're biased towards yourself. Which is reasonable, we all are biased towards ourselves.

just read this "I work him to a 3-2 count", more like he worked it to a 3-2 count, I don't think you wanted it to be 3-2 count, so it wouldn't be you "worked the count", it would be him.

I was down 3-0 in count

Yeah these kids definitely know every exploit in every situation. Hopefully the new defensive mechanics make that a thing of the past in 20

It's smart baseball to go 2nd to home on a bunt? Now if the throw was wide or something that's different

He was stealing, so it wasn't like he bunted while standing on 2nd, the runner was already in motion nearing third. Because he was stealing, the third baseman is going to cover third for the throw, meaning the bunt won't get fielded as fast. Same thing would happen in real life, the third baseman would cover 3rd not expecting a bunt.

On a bunt by Buster Posey no less. I’m with OP. This is pretty bush league, but what are you going to do? It’s not like we haven’t seen these exploits before.

Edit, accidently replied rather then editting.

I'm with OP as well. I wouldn't make a post about it, but his opponent was definitely cheesing and knew very well what he was doing.

Same thing would happen as in the first baseman would catch ball do some slow dance moves, tie his shoes and check his cup before realizing the runner sidnt stop at 3rd?....HD time to get him 1st in slo mo.

Anyway yes I dont usually complain on here seen this stuff for the last decade this one just ticked me off

Bunting with two strikes imo shows no confidence in ones ability to hit.

The main problem is you pitching to a 3-0 count. Then the 3-2 count allows the steal. 2nd problem is the bunt by Posey should never happen. Knowing that can happen need a better pitch location. The last thing would be the delayed throw.

No I mad a great pitch on 3-2 woulda been a grounder to third foul or a taken 3rd strike...I was down 3-0 trying to get him to chase one off the corner and or 2 seamer on his hands...he had been flailing the first 2 innings. I dont mind getting behind in count was nibbling and hit my spots on 3-0, 3-1, and 3-2.

1st and 2nd 0-0 score, zero outs with with your 2 hole hitter up.....and Pujols on deck...yea a 3-2 count less than 2 outs is a great time to bunt and run....

Says no one.

The only real problem is the bunt and run taking advantage of the 1Bs delayed reaction alowing him to score from second and lindor going 1st to 3rd.....

FYI I pegged Pujols with next pitch then I'd Griffey....

Anyway

Didn't you see Major League? Wesley Snipes scored from 2nd on a bunt.

Agree. No outs even. A walk scores...
