Kevin: Did you hear Riske’s excuse for giving up the home run yesterday? He thought I-Rod was going to bunt so he put one right down the middle—no joke!
Muneer: Well, at least he was thinking. That's more than we can say for guys in the past like Runelvys and Asencio.
It's baffling that Riske would think to groove one simply because he thought a bunt was coming. Isn't it standard to make the batter work when he attempts to bunt?
Kevin: Its definitely the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard an athlete admit to!
Muneer: Agreed. Given the Royals' recent sordid past, it's surprising that this is what trumps them all.
