Why doesn't Manuel ever try this play? Hell, Tampa pulled it on us the other day. Ray is struggling like crazy, why not try dropping one down? It seems to me that Ray has a better chance laying down a good bunt than he does hitting a flyball right now.

This is a good question. Ray could not have done as much damage if he had bunted.

What kills me about Ray is when we need a fly ball (last night) he hits a ground ball. Most of the time he is up there swinging for the fences and pops out. I hope he gets hot again because if we have any chance he has to be the guy to get us going.
