I want to puke every time I see some schmuck standing there staring at a long drive, like the Mona fucking Lisa suddenly appeared in left-center field. And what's worse, is these asshats do it at the stupidest times.
Bonds stands and stares, then struts after driving a ball to center field against Houston's rookie Taylor Buchholz. The towering drive is caught on the warning track, and Bonds isn't even to first base yet. Then he gives Buchholz a dirty look when Taylor yells at him to "run the fucking bases".
Pujols stands, stares, struts, and flips his bat after hitting a homer against the Pirates the other day. His drive cut the Pirates' lead to 8-2.
I'm convinced it's physically impossible for Ryan Howard to run and watch a fly ball at the same time, which is why he doesn't leave the batter's box for a solid 2 seconds on a drive.
David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez.....don't even get me started :(
It's so fucking aggrivating for me to watch this me-first attitude bullshit. I guess I'm just old-fashioned....when I was growing up, Big-Leaguers didn't do that because they didn't want to be showing up their peers. That would buy them a pitch in the ribs their next AB. Then again, in those days, the guy who got more hits than anybody put his head down and ran to first when he drew a walk..........
