There’s nothing like watching a young baseball player develop into a sincere red-ass before your very eyes. The first signs are always dismissed by the media as a player being green or immature. The second time something happens it might get talked about, but again the “he’s just an immature kid” thing comes up, but some media and older players start getting tired of it. In this step there is usually a rebuttal from the offended party. But, when you go and throw the whole…. “I hate team X” in…. now you’re going to get noticed.
And to be honest, I applaud young Latos for doing what he did. It was pure ass-headedness. But these are the things that I root for in the offseason. Any kind of team flaming, trash talking, over-hyping or ass making. It’s like someone is pouring a load of delicious Valintina’s hot sauce over my favorite dish. It spices everything up. When actual games are played they will taste better, they’ll be funner to watch, the tension will be higher. So hats off to you Mr. Latos, we can’t wait to see you get a nice close shave next time you take an at bat in San Francisco.
Oh and I took some time to personalize a baseball just for you.
This doesn’t mean that I won’t pick him as the second or third ace on my fantasy team this year…… ya he’s good…. he’s just and ass.
