Choking-up on the bat.....

Does anyone choke-up on the bat anymore? Doesn't it make sense for certain players with foot-speed to choke-up on the bat, and just try to make contact?

Cubbie players that I believe could benefit from this concept are: Theriot, Pie, E. Pat, and Fuld. In my opinion, these guys could make a bunt attempt once or twice a game as well.

Honesty compels me to say, that I'm typing this with one finger on each hand, and I'm obviously old-school,.... and old.....and I love pitching and defense.

But I'm just wondering, what's wrong with choking-up on the bat?
