    It's a pussy move, just like bunting to try and break up a no hitter late.

    If it were a sacrifice it'd be different, but Nunez is a chump for trying to bunt for a single in the first inning.

    I don't really care what you think is an awful take or not, tbh.

    Either way, I expect Nunez to take one in the thigh shortly.

    It's a smart idea by Nunez

    That said I love the fact that CC bitched and Nunez was like lol wat? Anything that gets Yankees and Red Sox players yelling at each other warms my heart. This shit has gotten too soft lately

    Fuckin CC is also somehow pulling a Tim Duncan and playing like a star at the end of his career against the rival with literally nothing in his knee. No reason he should be this good at this point. Whatever gets him angry and hyped for his next start is absolutely fine

    Sick man.

    CC comes off as a baby, but w/e gets you up in the morning. He has been pitching well against the Sox.

    He's been blown out a few times due to his body failing him, but yeah it's kinda like ARod going crazy right at the end and mashing hrs - you didn't see it coming yet get reminded that there's a reason why these people are next-level good. CC is one of those dudes that isn't going to make the HOF, but isn't going to miss it by very much

    He may make it to the hall, but I wouldn't be so sure, he's borderline.

    Poor CC was wasted in the first half of his career by my Indians. Ugh that 07 ALCS. I have a friend who's a delusional Yankees fan who blames the Brewers for CC breaking down because of a had of a season, even though he was the Yankees horse for years after.

    Nothing wrong with bunting any inning to get on in a close game.

    I generally don't like sac bunts, but bunting for hits I have no problem with depending on who is doing it. Especially on a fat dude with a bum knee. Exploiting someone's weakness is sports. If you know someone is weak going to their left in basketball, you're gonna make them go left. You're not a pussy for being afraid of them taking you off the dribble and going right.

    First day shit
