Someone ask Vin, "In your 98 years of broadcasting, just how many GD times did you see a teams LEFT HANDED number three hitter bunt with a couple guys on."

Bourns play wasn't the stupidest of that inning.

Nearly had an aneurysm on the Porch during that inning. That inning was everything I hate and then some.

Francona called for it, too. Kip wasn't doing that on his own:

Deduno walked Bourn and Nick Swisher to open the inning, and manager Terry Francona had All-Star second baseman Jason Kipnis try to bunt.
But after failing twice to get the ball down and advance the runners, Kipnis struck out looking, dropping him into an 0-for-18 hole.
''I had him bunt because he's had a tough time with Deduno,'' said Francona, noting Kipnis was 1 of 11 with six strikeouts against the right-hander before the at-bat. ''That one would be on me.''


Good thing Francona's still +11 wins for the season, though. Or something like that.

My question is why is it that Kipnis can't play an entire season? Heck of a first half guy. I don't suppose Vin has that answer though.
