freak out and toss a water cooler when you strike out, etc.
Football mentality applied to baseball.
It never really fits does it, baseball is a series of one on one battles that are awash in al sorts of variables, played over and over for six months of the year.
Football is head to head war in a team formation, built up for a week and applied to a 3 hour window only 16 times a year, all displayed in a fit of energy that would make Neal Cassidy blush.
The greatest disservice baseball has done to fans is that it looks so damn easy half the time.
But it ain't it's a grind of major proportions and a game that is truly a game of inches, not brute force and war room charting.
