Well, wasn’t that brave, Texas Rangers?!? Six months after the big home run in the ALDS in Toronto and in the last innings of the last meeting of the year, the Rangers decided that was time to extract revenge.
Throw at Bautista, punch Bautista and whatever else they thought would have their bad blood finally boil.
There will be suspension and I think John Gibbons, Toronto manager, will face the worst of them. He had already been tossed from the game earlier and decided to return to the field. That’s a big no-no.
Yes, Bautista violated baseball’s arcane ‘code’. However, the Rangers desire for retaliation came at a time that would ensure Toronto couldn’t get back at them.
Punk move, Rangers.
