Greetings from TomahawkNation, the FSU wing of SBNation.
We have a problem. Our coach is in the stone age.
On Saturday, against Georgia Tech, the 'Noles had men on 1st and 2nd with no outs, in the first inning.
Mike McGee, the #3 hitter, is OPS'ing 1.229
I understand bunting here is wrong, that it slightly increases the chance to score 1 and only 1 run, and really decreases the chance to score more than 1 run. What I am looking for is someone to tell our readership just how stupid this move is. How much does it decrease your chance of winning? How much worse is it to do this in the college game than the pro game?
Any help would be really appreciated. Our readership is very stat heavy and they'd enjoy something like this.
P.S. I'm also interested in hosting a baseball v. football: what's worse, punting on 4th and manageableor bunting in some select situations.
