Last night, Anthony Santander tried to lay down a bunt last night despite the fact that he has been hitting well since his call-up. Perhaps with a little better form he could have kept it fair. Like the bunt there or not with a hot hitter, can't argue the effort.
Chris Davis the worst hitter in baseball for two years and with one of the biggest holes in the game never shows that same effort. Does Davis know how to bunt? Probably not. Could Davis learn to bunt if he wanted to? Absolutely. But he doesn't. That makes me question his effort or at least his game focus. Do I want him to be a Hanser Alberto singles hitter? Of course not. But right now he is closer to Hamster Alberto, the least productive hitter in the game.
There have been many times where the situation dictated a baserunner but it's always the same wild swings blank stares approach. At this point he's more likely to get a lucky bunt single than a legitimate hit.
Davis and bunting has been talked about before, but for me if he was struggling the same as now but every now and then helped out the team with a bunt, I'd be less frustrated with him.
