I don't think Ichiro sacrifice bunts very often though.
My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

Well, he could beat one out, though.
Yeah.. this "fantasy guru" thing is just a user name, folks.

I guess I'll just have to file that under, "Things that make you go Hmmmm".

Because sac bunts are made by guys who have zero chance at beating it out to first.

Sac flies are mistakes basically. Sure, the batter may be trying to hit a long fly ball, but they are not trying to make an out in the process. It's more of an accident where as sac bunts, the batter knows he's going to be out.

Hope that makes sense, it's late and I'm tired. X-I Lol. :-D

Unless his name rhymes with Peachy-ro.

Peachy-ro? Lol. :-D That's funny! ;-D

You're right though, Ichiro gets a bonus since if there's a man on 1st and he bunts, it's considered a sacrifice if he gets out, but a hit if he gets on. Goes for all the speedsters (Scotty Pods, Pierre, etc.).

I'm sure they will eventually come out with a new stat that evens that out though. There are stats for everything. Lol. :-b
