Apparently there is a great deal of confusion and consternation over Robin Ventura having Alejandro De Aza sacrifice bunt with runners on first and second and no one out in the 7th inning of yesterday's game. This is what happens when dilettantes in the press try to stir up the sabermetric debate. To wit:

So it's a different feel when you're a player or a manager than it is just to sit there and right numbers down on a piece of paper."
