Attention Chris Davis

Well if a former 1-1 pick who was considered a generational talent and has developed into a perennial all star and MVP candidate (and is still in his prime years) can do it, then surely anyone can

Ron Darling says that it's not hard to bunt.  He said on TV that these guys don't practice and that if they did they could bunt.

If Bunting is so easy why'd he only have a .144 career batting average?

Have you actually watched when Chris Davis tried to bunt? It really didn't go well.  

He’s tried maybe 3-4 times in the 3 years he’s been struggling.     And I agree those didn’t look good but I just don’t think he tried it enough.    

Nice to see him get that double in the 9th.

That’s all well and good. It doesn’t make these types of posts anymore needed. 

Mine or the whole thread where we discuss whether he can bunt for the 100th time?

You can be in shape, you know, low body-fat percentage, nice muscle mass, good cardiovascular health, and still be clumsy and nonathletic. 

I used to be in good shape when I was in the service, I was still crap at sports because I'm uncoordinated.

That’s actually what he said.  “I hit .144 and I could bunt.”

The latter. But more so using every time he doesn’t succeed at something to have the same conversation in the 9000th iteration of the same thread.

So why didn't he bunt for hits?

The defense probably wasn't clearing half of the field for him to bunt to.

Ok so he doesn't go 5 for 6.  He can't go 2 for 10?  But it's easy.

I would guess because bunting is only half the equation. Have to have some wheels to beat it out which I doubt Darling had. Wasn't a power threat, defense had no incentive at all to give him any room to bunt for a single.
