June 3rd: Jamie Burke lays down possibly the most awesome squeeze bunt of all time.

Box score & PBP

----------

I don't know how many testicles you need to be able to bunt a 94mph tailing fastball that's coming right at your face, but I'm pretty sure it's more than two, since faced with a similar situation I can tell you with 100% certainty that I would've dropped to the ground and drowned my trousers.

I love squeeze bunts, I love Jamie Burke, and I love seeing people perform extraordinary feats that I could never envision pulling off myself. This moment had all three. It also happened to plate the eventual winning run for good measure, but that doesn't mean anything to me; it was incredible enough on its own that I wouldn't care if it came in a blowout. This was my favorite bunt since Carlos Guillen won us the 2000 ALDS. You better believe it belongs this high on the list.
