Fight or Flight I Guess

The clip cuts off but they got the out. ( @johnnyg08 will get a full clip for his channel I'm sure - great announcer nonsense there too)

Anything different if this was an open bullpen (people authorized to be on the field)?

I would point to this as a good training video, but probably not for the reason you think.

This is a great example of what to look for in a player-player collision when determining if you are going to eject for malicious contact.  Notice the "Blue Jays guy" braces for the impact.  "Loading" is very common when we see an impact coming.  A player will tuck his arms, drop his shoulder . . . those are all typical reactions for what is coming.  It is the "unload" we are watching out for -- a launch, pushing out, extending the arms, etc.  Again, BJG loads as he prepares for the impact, but he does not unload.

Travis Sawchik hasn’t been around baseball very much. 

“I’ve never seen anything like this.”, indeed. 🙄

Buffoon journalism.

In the Clemson/Florida game and the collision up the 1B line, you can see a great example of the "unload" that you described.

I need to go back and watch that game.  So many cryptic posts on here about it.  Sorry, don't have social media and won't click on their links.  I have a bad case of COTS (crotchety old troglodyte syndrome).

You're safe, Blue Man... @Velho embedded that clip in his post so, it will run right there on the page when you press the play button without opening a new window and taking you to the X platform...formerly Twitter.

LOL . . . thank you for humoring the old man.  🤣

Just a link showing on my screen, not even the preview picture.  I have caved and will usually play the embedded ones (reluctantly, as it still connects).  

Zuckemborg should do something about this.  (That is going to become one of my "go-to quotes that nobody gets."  If you have a chance to see the movie THELMA, see it!  Caught a sneak preview this week and it is hysterical.  It's a spoof of action/revenge movies where a 90+ year old lady gets scammed and then sets out to get her money back.)

:sarcasm:There's nothing funny about being scammed.

(Did I use the correct sarcasm color?)
