There’ll be plenty of college football stuff to go over tomorrow, but for the moment I wanted to let it be known that Manny’s habit of flipping off his batting helmet when he runs is getting to be beyond annoying. MLB should start fining him every time he does it. I wouldn’t be surprised if they ended up making a “suggestion” to him since the helmet is there for his safety.
It is hilarious, however, to watch it hit his feet as he flips it off and continues running. It’s also fun to see how far it goes and where it lands. Usually, the umps go pick it up because it ends up in the basepaths and what might be comfortable to Manny might also be a little dangerous for runners following in his path. —Vince
