This guy is 20 years old and probably going to be a great hitter. Probably already is a great hitter, but I hate this guy. He’s already a Philly killer, but I fucking hate this move.
This fucking power take is the lamest thing in all of sports. Every time he does it I get angry. I am all about the make baseball fun again thing, bat flip to the moon if you hit a homerun, but to take a pitch and act like you have the greatest eye since Tony Gwynn, and celebrate it is absurd. Jose Bautista’s bat flip was less disrespectful.
If I was pitching I wouldn’t think twice about the bat flip, but Juan Soto staring out at me after a fucking take, I would try to hit him in the chest with the next pitch.
