You’d think a pothead would be less angry

That kind of [expletive] happens often enough in baseball that I find it amazing that no one's thought of putting a punching bag in the dugout or clubhouse yet.

Seems reasonable, and might as well paint the faces of some of our favorite umpires on them .

Happens frequently with players. It's not smart but no reason to criticize Reyes more than any other player that has done it.

At least he punched with his left hand. Somebody has been watching Bull Durham.

That said, I'm concerned about him not using proper form. When you punch, you should connect with the top knuckles of the index and middle finger. If you're punching with the pinky then you have no fundamentals.

People who watch minor league ball: are there signs he's improving?

Guessing the Fate of April’s Underachieving Pitchers
by Dan Szymborski

Quote:
Dakota Hudson, St. Louis Cardinals

I like his future, but I’m not crazy about his present. I thought the Cardinals got a little too excited about his 20-strikeout spring training. I don’t think the homers are a problem long-term, but I think the immediate issue is that he remains very much more a thrower than a pitcher. 40% of his fly balls allowed becoming homers isn’t something I worry about him sustaining, but what he does need improving on is actually punching out batters. No, not every pitcher is going to whiff 11 batters a game, and Hudson’s hard sinker is counted on to result in a lot of hits driven straight into the ground, but it’s hard to say a pitcher who has had trouble striking out minor league batters isn’t someone to worry about. John Gant’s the better pitcher right now.
