My thoughts too. :-? If anything, it's an awesome gesture by MLB to spread awareness about breast cancer.

;D ;D to whoever thought of this.

It's a whole lot better than those Spiderman bases.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Quoted For Truth.

I can imagine watching sportscenter or baseball tonight, giggling like a madman.
Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.

Alex Rodriguez was quoted as saying, "Pink bats? Great! They'll go perfect with my new, pink, 'The future Mrs. Jeter' T-shirt!"

Ok. That's three jokes. You were right.

I think it's a nice gesture, especially having known women to go through it.

Heck, my G/F loves pink and I've been trying to get her into baseball. Maybe I'll try and get one of the bats when they auction them afterwards.

And I too would be curious of a list of players who will use them, but I read that they're taking orders until Thursday, so we may not know until the weekend.

That is the funniest thing I have heard in a while. That would almost ease the pain of having him break the record. ;-)

Not to sound like a smart alek, but do you really believe there are people out there who don't know breast cancer exists? 8-o

I don't mind all the special stuff that MLB does for breast cancer, in fact I've donated to that cause, however, I don't believe pink bats is the brightest of ideas, and seriously doubt that a male major league ballplayer swinging a pink bat will teach anyone anything about breast cancer. Just my opinion though. B-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I think its a great way to raise money for a great cause.
I love the idea of a pink bat. I wish Sheffield wasn't on the Dl, id love to see him wagging a pink bat.
