    Jack is old school.

    I can't imagine that he was bothered by it.

    No quarter asked, none given.

    I would have walked him too, if I were managing. Sometimes you get the bear, sometimes the bear gets you.

    He may have helped in the awakening of our sleeping giant, and Junior may have given the Marlins some good bulletin board fodder. So what.

    If there's one thing I can say about both these teams, it's that they both play hard.

    What the Furbals of the world have to say about it, I couldn't care less.

    By "my" POV he "Glanced" or "Looked" over that way.

    Did he "Glare"? isn't it an opinion what a "Glare" is anyway?

    Maggie Simpson "Glares" at the baby with one eyebrow, was the loathing in Juinors glance equal to that?
    Like I said earlier, WOY, it might be a "percentage" move to set up the double play, but it is not a common sense move to IW ahead of a player the caliber of Griffey, esp. a Griffey that has been producing of late.

    A question about the event itself, for those who saw it on TV live. On the Fox19 website clip, it looked like Griffey either slowed his trot as he passed the Marlins dugout or it was slowed by television technology, which made the "glare" longer. Is that clip in real-time?

    It wasn't that long or that bad. It's a slow news/sports day and it's Jr. It was maybe a 3 second look and if that's the best he can do for a glare, then his kids have never gotten the same kind of glare that my dad use to give me.
    Will trade this space for a #1 starter.

    yea, when he hits it

    I wouldnt call a .250ish average that great... sorry

    he could have a 2.500OPS but if he was hitting .250 id say the same thing

    I don't know how this whole staring thing became an issue...Griffey with emotion and fire! Isn't that what we have been waiting for for 3 and a half years?

    Welcome to baseball, Beckett! If you don't like someoe showing you up for testing their ability, then don't give him a pitch he can turn around on you.

    I don't know if I can do this twice in one day, I might get called an ugly name by someone *cough*Cedric*cough*.

    Oh the heck with it..I'll just quote myself.

    Since I'm sure we CAN agree to that, why use a stat (batting average) that gives equal weight to all of those outcomes AND ignores other ways of getting on base when we have other stats (OPS for example) that tells us all that and are just as easy to find as BA?

    There, I feel better.
