I suppose you COULD bench him but it's not like we are talking about a 20 year old rookie here. Alexei is a veteran and knows his role on the team and I suspect he also knows that there is no one else on the roster who can play short.
I know what you're saying, but at the same time there is no excuse for not at least trying to bunt correctly. It's a pretty simple concept. If Ramirez's way of bunting is his way of saying *$%@ you to the manager, then he needs his attitude changed or he needs to be traded. It's losing baseball and should not be tolerated.

There are reasons why teams like the Giants and Cardinals win the World Series and why we fail to make the playoffs.
