I watch so many teams down several runs bunt with 1 out. And the runner gets out. I've not quite understood it. I chalk it up to odd coaching or your #4 above.

100% agree!
IMO you should not bunt unless one of the following
1. The player is a good bunter and fast enough to be a hit a good % of the time.
2. You are in the last 2 innings of a single run game.
3. You are facing a dominant pitcher and you have a dominant pitcher.
4. The batter is not a strong hitter and strikes out a lot.

Maybe some other senecios but most games the winner has at least 1 multiple run innings.

The one that makes me cringe is a bunt after a walk. Particularly 1-0 and 2-0
So bunt most of the time?:p
