Regarding Redmond's decision to bunt, can someone explain it to me? I didn't see the game so I don't know the game was flowing, but if even Tommy was confused there must be some sort of reason Redmond wanted to make the play.
Why did he want 1st base open? And if that's what he wanted, why bunt towards third?
Maybe he wanted to surprise the defense? Someone please enlighten me.
Edit: From Marlins.com:
"I was trying to get a couple of guys in scoring position," Redmond said. "The way we've been going, if he swings, he might ground into a double play. I wanted to get guys in scoring position.
"I still take my chances with the bases loaded and one out, and our four-hole hitter at the plate, if they walk [stanton]."
