Lucas Apostoleris of Beyond the Box Scores looks at some bunt statistics, and concludes that Angel Pagan and Jose Reyes were two of the most efficient bunters in the game in 2010. He also notes that Luis Castillo bunts a lot, but presumably not as efficiently. Castillo’s first inning bunts when Reyes is on first base drive me nuts every single time Slappy drops one down.
These recent Mets have featured a large number of speedy bunters. Reyes, Pagan, Castillo, Endy Chavez, Carlos Gomez, and probably some that I’ve missed. I wonder if that changes with the new FO.
