“I just told him to run the bases. He was out there acting like a f—ing clown. I told him to run the bases. He’s a good player. He’s had a great year-and-a-half, no doubt, he’s been one of the best hitters in the league. He was out there acting like he’s Babe Ruth or something. That’s horses—, I think.”
“He isn’t that good to be acting like he needs to hit every ball out of the ballpark. That’s just the way I feel. I have pride. I really do. I’ve had a pretty crappy year to this point but I have pride still and I’m not going to let him sit out there and show me up like that.”
“I was upset at missing a pitch, at myself,” Bautista said. “If he took it the wrong way, I’m sorry, but I’m not here to make him feel good.
“It really doesn’t matter to me what he thought. What I’m not going to allow is when I’m running by him, him yelling at me again, so I yelled back at him.”
Sounds like somebody is feeling the pressure of losing his starting job.
