    Which is a greater disgrace to the game: bat-flipping or playing hung over, as Saint Mick did often?

    What about all the PEDs he used?

    Mickey probably only flipped the bat because the noise it made hitting that homer made his head hurt worse.

    When are they going to start addressing the real disgrace to the game.

    If Bob Feller could wear his pants at the calf - Kershaw should as well. It's a disgrace and disrespects the game.

    How about Babe Ruth? He had an adult beverage now and then during Prohibition. Such blatant disregard for the law.

    Pedro Cerrano circled the bases with the bat in his hands in 1989 and no one said shit.

    The Mick didn't stand there and admire it. That's the different.

    Great days when the Mick was cool and the Yankees rule. Just the way it should be.

    I'd like to know where the ball went. I am wondering if he isn't pissed off about missing a sitter.

    Speaking of which, who was the moron in the Cleveland government who wrote the attendance escape clause of 800,000? Not counting the strike year of '81, the Indians drew less than that in three straight years.
