Here's a question I'd like to throw out to all you Rays fans. Yesterday in the bottom of the seventh inning with the Rays already up by six runs and the score 8-2 they were faced with a first and third one out situation and Sean Rodriguez at the plate. The Rays usually in that scenario will lay down the safety squeeze bunt and add an easy run. Yesterday they decided against it, and I'm guessing based on the score. My question is should a team stop being creative in such circumstances, squeeze bunt, hit and run or steal a base.
As long as the opposing team is still trying to score runs, using their regulars, pinch hitting where applicable, should the team with the lead stop trying?
Should the Rays have tried to tack on even with a six run lead?
