Something needs to be done short-term and long-term about Ramirez's bunting.

Short-term, I'd bench him for two games if possible. It's one thing to not execute the bunt. It's another to approach the two attempts like he did. Ramirez should be completely embarrassed that he doesn't know how to sacrifice bunt as a veteran shortstop.

Long-term, he needs to arrive early to practice bunting until he at least approaches bunting properly. This problem needs to be corrected at last. It reflects poorly on Guillen and Ventura that they allowed Ramirez to get away with his poor attitude toward bunting for so long.
