Emilio Bonifacio Bad at Bunting

It comes as no surprise to any Marlins fans who regularly watches the team play that Emilio Bonifacio is one of the worst bunters in the game.

Lucas Apostoleris of Beyond the Boxscore takes a look at bunting and statistically examines who does it well and who doesn't.  It turns out--no surprise--that Boni's name shows up often in the negative column.

Here is his post:

Laying It Down, Part 1

As one would expect, in bunting, much like in base stealing, speed alone won't make you good at it.  And Boni definitely isn't.  However, if you click on the link and read the post, you will find that Chris Volstad is very good at the sacrifice bunt.  Then again, you knew that already too.

The bottom line is that your eyes were not deceiving you and if asked, you could have predicted the statistical results.  With ease.
