Spitting in Baseball

16 posts in this topic

Watching the game tonight, and see a shot of Gardy sitting in the dugout, arms crossed looking quite relaxed, and spitting. He doesn't chew, except for gum. So that got me wondering, do you suppose when he sits at home in the Lazyboy watching Dancing with the Stars, he spits for no appearant reason? wink

I think the worst though was Garza. That guy spit so much, MY mouth would get dry just watching it.

All I'm saying is that I thought it kinda funny, the visual of Gardy, or any player for that matter, sitting at home with the family, TV on, and every so often, "Pftp", a little spit comes shooting out, and the wife yelling, "SAVE IT FOR THE GAME, RON!! JEEZ!!!"

Could make for a pretty good SNL skit some day, ya think?

I think it is a disgusting site to be honest with you all. It seems like everytime a camara is on them, they are spitting away, from spit, sunflower seeds, chew juice. It is getting worse and worse and more disgusting. Kinda tough to eat and watch sports people on TV lately.

It really doesn't bother me I guess.....but no one human being spits more than Alfonso Soriano.

If you have a chance...watch him bat sometime....I'll bet he spits every 2 seconds. How can anyone have that much saliva in their mouth...he doesn't chew seeds or tobacco...just plain spit. lol

Garza/s disgusting.

I do think SNL could do a pretty funny skit with it.

I'm thinking the house of representatives. Every time someone stands up at the podium or whatever, spit spit spit.

Cut to a courtroom, judge spit spit spit, attorney spit spit spit, prosecutor spit spit spit, jury, spit spit spit. even right before they give their verdict etc.

Cut to a news anchor, spit spit spit. The weatherman spit spit spit.

They could even do the WSOP, have all the guys spitting, getting their spit on the cards, and having to wipe it off, on the chips... it would be rather hilarious/disgustingly so.

Maybe just have Garza, in each. Have him lose his job as a pitcher, and he's auditioning for various other jobs. Announcer, poker player, golfer, congressman etc. Can you see him on the first tee at the Masters, spitting 3 or 4 times between back swings. Lining up his putt, and spitting continuously. Picking up the trophy/check and spitting. Getting spit on everything... including the green jacket.

I think the cup adjustment is worse than the spitting. Big series with my Tigers starts tonight. Watch Cabrerra. Doesn't matter if he's at bat or in the field.

Good luck, Twins, but I have to pull for my Tigers.

    • So how did you get the livewell overflow out? We've had some problems with ours & have toyed with the idea of replacing it. We don't really want to tear all the floor up though. 
    •   Yeah., just not the same as Frankie. Try typing in all CAP'S!
    • Not last year but the year before that we had one that followed us all through deer season.  He would hop up on our knee while we were sitting there, and the little bastard would grab my glove and try to run off with it.  He was almost dinner many nights.
    • Saw this topic and the link to Rock Auto. I ordered up left and right headlight assembly's for my 04 Suburban. They fit right in and even included bulbs. $58.00 to the door delivered for the pair. Cannot beat the price and quality looks fine- better than the old dump I replaced.  Now do I replace the daytime running lens assembly's and fog lamps? Ordered on Thursday and delivered on Saturday 2 days early.
    • They have the 20% off sale(some exclusions) going on this week at Gander. Just need the code from the page, though Rogers just uses one at the counter, so I didn't need it. They got more fishing stuff out now, so I loaded up on some Missle Destroyers!
    • I got the TYC Fog light installed last week. Worked good and looks better than the busted out one! I would of done it months ago if I knew it was that cheap and easy to do.
    •     Oh stop it. How was I to know? You'll just get Dell all fluffed up again and we'll turn THIS into another sillytown.
    • There are a few places to stay that are not too far from the lake.  Hamilton House in Winnipeg Beach is good, a lot of guys stay at the Casino on the East side,  there is a new hotel in Selkirk that is pretty nice and has lots of rooms and breakfast.     Nobody plows roads.  We always watch the weather and snow depth before we go.  We have been lucky to only have to bring ATVs with wheels up there.  Eventually we will have to deal with some deep snow though and bring sleds or tracks up.     There are a few guides that run around on the lake.  Lee Nolden and Blackwater Cats are the 2 I know of.  From what I hear they are pretty accomadating and have all the necessary gear.  
    •   Way to be tolerant of Autistic people.....
    • Winter Storm Watch URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE National Weather Service La Crosse WI 349 AM CST Wed Feb 22 2017 ...Winter Storm Moves In Thursday Night... .Snow...rain...and wind will accompany a winter storm slated to drive across the region Thursday night through Friday night. The precipitation will start out as rain Thursday evening... transitioning to snow or a rain-snow mix later Thursday night, continuing through Friday. Snow is expected Friday night. A brief period of freezing drizzle also possible late Thursday night into Friday morning. Current indications would bring 4 to 8 inches...locally higher...to locations along and north of an Austin to Winona Minnesota...to Black River Falls Wisconsin line. Light icing possible if freezing drizzle develops. Winds become strong and gusty Friday night. Blowing and drifting snow could become a concern in open and unsheltered areas. While confidence is high that this storm will produce significant amounts of snow, where that ultimately falls is not certain. A small shift in the storm track will have large impacts on what falls where, and how much.            I thought he might BE from Iowa....
