Ok, I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but I love baseball fights. Dumb ones, like this, that is, not ones like Marichal attacking Roseboro with a bat. Here are some things I love about baseball fights:
A) Posturing. So much posturing.
B) The bullpen guys all slowly jogging in from the outfield and by the time they all get there they just have to turn around and go back.
C) There’s always a player who wasn’t actually involved with whatever the incident was that sparked the fight, but who really takes it to heart and has to be restrained and wants to be super in-the-middle-of it for some reason.
D) The guys that watch on the outskirts (so, mostly everyone). They just sort of mill around and maybe bump chests with an opposing player if they’re feeling aggressive. A lot of players take the opportunity to catch up with the other team, though, and then you get stuff like this. You know, just hangin’ out. Taking a break from work. In the video, Pierre is clearly trying to catch Janish’s eye to start a conversation (the content of which we shall never know). Hey, better talking than hitting with a bat, right?
Makes me (fleetingly, I’m sure) wish I knew how to make gifs.
Just one of the reasons why the Marlins are the worst
This is going to be the last remnant of civilization that the aliens will find when they visit a desolate Earth in 5,000 years. And they will wonder.
