OK, so I'm not restarting this thread with a bat flip, but with Bryce Harper justifying those types of celebrations in baseball.

Goose Gossage hates fun and THOSE players:

“Bautista is a horsefeathering disgrace to the game,” Gossage told ESPN. “He’s embarrassing to all the Latin players, whoever played before him. Throwing his bat and acting like a fool, like all those guys in Toronto. [Yoenis] Cespedes, same thing.”


You'd think a grown man who goes by "Goose" would be less of a boring dork. He also rants about "nerds" ruining the game, etc., etc..

Again, this man somehow thinks this is a bad thing:

One day during the 1990 lockout Gossage was throwing batting practice to his son Keith, who was 10 at the time. Keith was having trouble hitting the outside pitch because he stepped away from the ball rather than toward it. “You’re stepping in the bucket,” Gossage hollered. “Let’s work on it.”So Gossage tossed a pitch outside. Keith stepped in the bucket and whiffed on it. Gossage tossed another pitch outside. Keith missed it again. He made no adjustment. This happened again and again and again—10 times in all—before that frightening alter ego overcame Gossage. And so the Goose, one of the most fearsome fastball pitchers of all time, wound up in that unmistakable chaotic motion of his, first showing his hulking back to the plate and then, in a sudden, violent windmill of arms and legs, unleashing something only slightly less than his most terrifying fastball at his fifth-grader.“Something happened between winding up and letting it go,” he recalls now. “It just happened.”He drilled his son. Nailed him flush on the left thigh, a direct hit that would turn the kid’s leg “black, blue, green, purple, yellow—all the colors of those real nasty ones,” Gossage says.The boy hobbled to his feet. “Dad,” he screamed, “you’re an horsefeathers!” Keith laughs about it now, about how he could hardly walk for a couple of days. His father laughs too. “I used to joke about how I’d drill my own mother if she were up there,” Goose says. “I guess maybe I would. I mean, I hit my own kid.”

not bat flip related but from that same article:

Former manager Matt Williams would tell him, "Most great hitters can figure on getting one pitch an at-bat, and they can't miss it. You're going to get half a pitch."....Still, there were times during Harper's 124-walk season when Williams would chide Harper by asking, "Are you going to swing the bat today?"

It's like he's just trying to leave it closer to the dugout so the bat boy doesn't have to walk as far.
