Yes...pouty, he put his head down after being embarrassed by his swing and never at any point hustled....not like he sulked for a second and then realized the ball got away and took off to first...he pouted for 8 steps to first.
Of course all the things you mentioned are the big picture but the 24/7 stuff is silly....he does that every time he's unhappy with his swing UNLESS it's to beat out a bang bang DP potential play or to beat out a hit to 3rd on a crapper swinging bunt.
Great player....helping the Reds win greatly.
