Spitting in Baseball

Recommended Posts

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.

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.

    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River.

    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
