A-Rod, rounding third and yelling "mine" at the third baseman is bush league. I wouldn't call something as simple as a fist pump to fall under the same category. The guy's showing some emotion, so what?

Fist pumping and shouting after every strikeout is showing up a batter. It's bush league. If a hitter did the same thing after every hit/home run, they would be thrown at.

This is part of the reason I don't like the DH. ;-)

I don't understand. Are you saying that DHs are showboaters?

Not after every pitch, it's after pretty much every strikeout. He's a great pitcher, he doesn't have to do it.

Yep. He may stop doing it if he had to face live pitches himself. Having that DH take those plunks for you isn't nearly so painful. :-b

Ah, now I get it. I think you've just found the one thing about NL baseball that is better than AL baseball.
