In RL if Teagarden tries to bunt, there are several likely results
1-If he misses his first try, the IF comes in and the next pitch is probably high and tight
2-If he misses his first try, the runner at third is going to be closely held
3-If he gets it down, most of the time the runner at third holds
4-He gets the bunt down and the runner scores
In Sim, the runner NEVER holds at third, which is part of the programing flaw that is being taken advantage of. In Sim, the defense cannot react pitch by pitch, and there's no brushback pitch.
The real life argument is silly. Jim Rice was probably the most-prolific GIDP player in the history of the game, and in 16 years he bunted five times. Career GIDP leaer Cal Ripken bunted 10 times in 21 seasons. It comes down to choosing whether to exploit a programming flaw — not having most first-and-third bunts advance just the trail runner — or not.
sjh, we simply disagree. You believe it's fine to exploit/use the squeeze to win, I feel differently. You and others who feel the same way are entitled to that opinion, and those who feel it's wrong are equally entitled to get ****** off about it.
