That was pretty bush league to lay down that bunt, but Mexico reacted like babies.
It was awesome to watch, as for the bunt, you know run differential can make a difference so we had to score as many runs as possible.
I understand but you know how baseball is with it's encyclopedia of unwritten rules. It's just generally accepted that you don't lay down bunts late in games that you are up big in.
In retrospect it was pointless cause we lost, but at the time I can't say I wouldn't have done the same thing.
Unfortunately, in the WBC the first tiebreaker is run differential, and in a round robin it's essential to score as many runs as possible.
I'm not saying I don't understand why they did it bro. Just saying baseball is weird as fuck and they should have expected retaliation, especially from a bunch of hot head latinos
