I wouldn't be shocked that record keepers were taking note of successful bunt attempts prior to 1987 while not really tracking failed attempts all that reliably.
Billy Butler went 30 for 60 in bunt attempts from 1981 to 1986 and then went 157 for 322 from 1987 to 1997. He had about 3000 PA in the first part and about 6400 PA in the second part.
If anybody cares, Aaron Boone said on today's Rangers-Yankees telecast that he agrees with Lewis. I only point that out so that people can understand that ballplayers may have different views on this subject than non-ballplaying baseball fans.
Lewis' complaint is so confused that I can't just call it the result of a different perspective. It's profoundly nonsensical.
So it's just a total, stupid, incoherent mishmash.
