    The fucking "unwritten rules" are all utterly idiotic.

    Don't want people to steal bases with a big lead? Either throw them out, or don't let them take a big lead.

    Don't want people to showboat while running out homers? Don't give up homers.

    Don't want people to tee off on cripple pitches on the 3-0 count? Don't get behind 3-0 in the count.

    Don't want runners to slide hard into base? Don't let them get on base.

    It's all fucking loser bullshit.

    Just like whining about people dunking/taking 3-pointers with a big lead in basketball, or throwing long bombs in football. If you don't like it, stop them.

    Disagree, Starman.

    There are rules we must all follow in polite society or get drilled in the back with a 90 mph fastball.

    Unwritten rules? The next time someone buzzes Manny Ramirez will be the first time. They're all making too much coin to mess with that BS.
