There's is absolutely no reason for him to do that, and nothing to be gained. It's just styling.

And don't even get me started on Carlos Martinez's arrogant hair, amirite?

What about how Edmonds was all style in most of his diving plays? If he had hustled faster to get in better position, he wouldn't have had to dive so often. ALL STYLE.

This seems like something that a true "Leader of Men" would nip in the bud before it was an issue. Really should never have been an issue at all.

Not today, not tomorrow, but one day Dexter will drop one like this, and i will bump this thread, and you'll all be sorry.

And purple hair doesn't make anyone drop a ball. It does, however, make you overthrow bases at an epic clip.

Listening to Jenn Langosh on Bernie talking about Fowler. She says that saying Fowler is the first to leave is unfair, and is not accurate. Also, she says that the reason Fowler was late to the clubhouse is because he has his own training staff and regiment that he pays for himself, and a lot of his work is done elsewhere.

There's a lot more here about the clubhouse in the 9 AM hour):

Every time we have a good season we hear all about how great the clubhouse was. The team had chemistry. And every time we have a bad season we hear all about how bad the clubhouse was. The team lacked chemistry. Gotta change the chemistry in the clubhouse.

Blah blah blah.

I'm not saying that some chemistry is involved in this whole baseball thing, but the bullpen didn't implode because Dexter Fowler left the clubhouse early.

Ortiz is a hack and it would not be surprising if his story turned out to be inaccurate.

Ortiz is fine. He just isn't a shill for the current product.
