Sure, ths makes perfect sense . Have BU run away from a potential play (BR back into 2B or a run down) and go 120' from the cutout to HP, with his back to the play? Why not cut the angle angle and move 70' to make the call at 3B?

The ONLY times the PU will get involved here is when the BU goes out on a trouble ball or covering his 1/2 of a run down.
