I'm not even going to give any context, just watch this clip.
This has to be the most old man yells at clouds take of all time. Like it blows my mind that someone even came up with this take... actually on second thought it is right on par with baseball dinosaurs who would rather watch the sport they love die than adapt to modern times.
Basically the Dodgers weren't wearing batting practice gear and Braves announcer Joe Simpson made it seem like they whipped their cocks out and starting swinging them like bats for BP.
Oh my God, you guys...Chase Utley wore a K cancer shirt during BP, what a scumbag!
T-shirts in late July in ATLANTA? No way!
Put on your jackets with your name on them so the losers who show up 3 hours before the game starts can identify you.
He tried to say that Dodger fans who traveled to the game wouldn't recognize the players. First off that's an idiotic take. Anybody traveling to an away game, GOING to batting practice knows who's on the team. But then again, I mean maybe he's right... there's 18 gingers on the Dodgers, so you'd never be able to spot out Justin Turner (and his horrible hair). Just like how Chase Utley is one of the younger guys on the team, so you'd never be able to tell the different between him and Cody "Who is Jerry Seinfeld?" Bellinger. Matt Kemp and Chris Taylor might as well be identical twins.
I mean come on dude? This is exactly what is wrong with baseball. Old dudes like you getting offended by fucking t-shirts. Tell him Vince!
It's kind of fucked up to say but I cannot wait until the old generation of baseball guys is dead or at least out of the game. I bet this guy also hates bat flips, hats that aren't 100% straight, facial hair players, the DH, interracial marriage, freedom, and women's reproductive rights. Baseball is my favorite sport (until football season) and I want to see the game live on. Guys like this are crippling the game. We need to adapt and make shit more fun and interesting. Things like cool shirts, and a little extra swag are only going to help the game. Go get your milk of magnesia and take a chill pill (xanny).
P.S. I absolutely love the Dodger players having a little fun with this stupid ass story. Kike Hernandez is quickly becoming one of my favorite non-Red Sox players.
Former Dodger and current Atlanta Brave (on the 60 day DL) got in on the fun as well in a more serious fashion.
I agree, Jason. Chase looks awesome.
I know who else would agree. #makebaseballfunagain
