Thank you Joe!

Torre that is for pitching to our Joe last nite. But didn't understand the 2 bunts in his prior AB's. A nice way to end a horribly played series by our club, base running, pitching, defense and hitting pretty much stunk the whole series. Hopefully Joe's hit will carry over for a sweep of the Ray's.

Both bunts were explained in a Star Trib article.

Apparently Joe wasn't seeing the ball well for some reason so when he was given the sign to get the runner over to second he bunted beucase he thought it was the best chance he had to getting the runner in position to score.

I like the fact that he was able to recognize that he hasn't been seeing the ball well and made a choice based on that to work around it by bunting. He said he also knew that Cuddy had been hitting better lately so he figured if I can just bunt the runner over Cuddy has a better chance at bringing him home.

Bunting is a neglected art. How often we have we seen the Twins fail in this fundamental part of the game? Sure, you expect the batting champ to feel like he can drive the guy home instead, but fact is even batting champs are out 6-7 times out of 10. With our knack for wasting RISP/0 out chances, I was happy to see Cuddy come up only "needing" a sac fly instead of 1 out runner still at second. Although a "productive out" on a ball pulled to the right side would have done the trick too, I say good for Joe.

      I don't have an axe to grind with The Landing (and I don't honk anyone on this forum does either)- I went there a few times last summer and the food was good, they had an ample beer selection, and the service was friendly- all of those things I'm willing to pay for.   We had another couple up staying the weekend at our cabin and brought them to The Landing and had a terrific time, looking forward to making it back there again!   And more importantly, can't wait for the ice to get off the lake!!
