I really, really hate that Ventura asked Ramirez to bunt. Others have noted that Ramirez is a poor at bunting, which is without question accurate.

But, even if he had gotten the bunt down, it was a poor choice. It would be one thing if Konerko or Rios was on deck. But why in the world are you trying to set up an RBI chance for Gimenez?

Man at second, nobody out. Ramirez, Gimenez and De Aza are the next three hitters. Who is the best RBI man out of those three? I would contend it is Ramirez. So why take the bat out of his hands?
