They don't even show the first pitch of the AB. How are we supposed to see that Bautista is a moron?

Gil Imber said...

This is true. Just another thug in my opinion.

Gil Imber said...

I would'nt call him a thug. I would just call him someone that doesn't think

Gil Imber said...

I can't wait for the write-up for this one, especially when Bautista goes on another anti-umpire rant which hopefully will cost him boku bucks.

Gil Imber said...

Bautista is not friends with many umpires, lets be hones

Was watching this game on live tv. Here is the video link. Bautista didnt like the first pitch call which as you can see on the video, is at the middle lower portion of the strikezone. Bautista is a massive cry baby. Doesnt think anything is a strike.

Is it just me or does it look like every time Darling is in a heated conversation he has the body language that the other guy is going to punch him?

Way to take care of business today Gary. Brutal on Bautista's part.

Gil Imber said...

I love how Buck says the pitch was "borderline low" when even their own pitch f/x has it completely in the zone.

Gil Imber said...

Of course this is after Bautista waves at one in the dirt. Guess that one's Gary's fault, too.

Gil Imber said...

As a Jays fan I'm glad someone finally tossed Bautista

Gibbon's postgame conference (first part is where he discusses Bautista's ejection): http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/gameday/index.jsp?gid=2013_06_09_texmlb_tormlb_1&mode=wrap#gid=2013_06_09_texmlb_tormlb_1&mode=video Notice how he laughs when he said that Bautista thought the pitch was low.

Gil Imber said...

I really don't understand why people even bother arguing balls and stripes. One might be more successful pissing into the wind and hoping not to get "splashback".

Gil Imber said...

This applies to about 95% of the world's population, so what is your point? =-)

Gil Imber said...

LOL good point

Gil Imber said...

Tossing the gear on the field won't help....

Gil Imber said...

Here is Tom Grieve's call on the play. https://soundcloud.com/daynperry/crybaby

Rangers radio guys?

Gil Imber said...

Yes, but an ex major leaguer. Dirk Hayhurst who is a Jays analyst, agreed with him today.

TV
