Short, scribbled thoughts about the suspensions/fall out

May 18, 2016

I really had no desire to post something about the shenanigans that took place in Arlington and the subsequent suspensions/fines. There really wasn’t a point since I’m not an expert in disciplinary action. But I will say this…

Jose Bautista didn’t deserved to be punched. Odor’s actions were inexcusable. The amount of games he received for the suspension wasn’t going to satisfy all Blue Jay fans. No number would.

What Odor did angered me. My blood pressure goes up every time I saw his fist connect with Bats’ chin. Yes, I took it personally. But now, I just want to move on.

In addition to playing for the Astros and Phillies, the late John Bateman was an original Montreal Expo. Overall, he was behind the plate in over 1000 big league games during the 1960s and early 70s.

Since 2011, Bateman’s life has been celebrated through a fictitious Twitter account. It was created by a Texas-area artist, who as a child, chose the catcher as his favourite player. The account features diary style tweets, as if the social medium existed during Bateman’s playing day.
