Villar gives us another classic

You gotta admit, Jonathan Villar and his Houston Astros may not
be very good, but they sure are fun.

Villar, a .249-hitting rookie shortstop already gave us perhaps
the highlight of the year with


his butt-slide earlier this month
against the
Reds. And on Tuesday, he gave us another beauty. But what do we
call perhaps the worst bunt attempt in baseball history? You can
also see the video


here
.

Villar isn’t the first player to miss a ball on a bunt. And
we’ve seen players get a jump on trying to lay down a drag bunt.
But only Villar could drop the bat before the Yu Darvish pitch gets
to the plate and miss the ball by what looks like a good foot. He
would go on to strike out for the first of three times on his way
to an 0-for-5 night in the


Astros’ 3-2 loss to the Rangers
.

But amazingly (or perhaps not so amazingly), this isn’t the
first time Villar has tried this. He did this last month.

But clearly, nothing beats this.
