With that bat flip, Bautista officially proved today what we already knew - he's the biggest ass in the game. I'm going to propose to Weldon that we suspend all coverage of Canadians for 30 days as punishment for Bautista.
I hate that guy.
I don't watch a lot of baseball, but I watched the highlights of this inning. I don't understand why the guy tossing the bat is such a big deal.
It isn't that he tossed his bat, it is HOW he tossed his bat. There is an unwritten rule that you do not celebrate excessively; you don't stand there and admire your home run or toss the bat excessively high. The reason for this is that it is unsportsmanlike and embarrasses the pitcher. It wouldn't surprise me if Bautista is intentionally hit next season.
