Big Bad Bautista

Reimagining this “disrespectful” and “arrogant” Bautista caricature as firmly on the side of good is an excellent exercise. He’s confident, loyal, defends and supports his teammates, and patently refuses to let anyone speak for him.

Derek Holland not a fan of Jose Bautista on the field, and ‘personally, I don’t like him, either’ | Dallas Morning News

The Bautista bat flip - have you ever seen a bat flip like that?

Holland: He’s the most animated player I’ve ever seen. After watching him in the outfield cry about every single thing, it’s unbelievable. I don’t care if he hits a home run off me, that’s fine, I give up home runs, I’ve struck people out, I do all that stuff, it’s how baseball goes. But the way you do it - is he better than the game? Yeah, you lived in the moment, that’s great. You hit a home run? Yeah, you can pimp it. That’s fine. But the way he did it, I just think that one - that’s a bit much. That’s cool if you want to stare at the pitcher, because obviously the pitcher made the mistake. If it’s me, I made the mistake; you hit the home run? Cool, stare at me. I’m going to be the one that’s not actually staring at you, I’m going to watch and see how far you just hit it because that’s how I am. I like to punish myself by seeing that. But the way he did it, I don’t like it at all. I mean, personally, I don’t like him, either. Especially after seeing more about him during the game, and being out in the outfield and seeing how he complains about every single thing. It’s like, no matter what, if you throw anything close to the plate, and it’s a ball, it’s supposed to be a ball for him - no matter what. It’s like we can’t have any calls or anything like that, it’s always his way. I just don’t like that. I’m not a big fan of him.

Fraley: The 53 minutes that changed the Rangers’ destiny

“We won the West when nobody thought we would do anything. I’m more proud of how those guys played all year long.”

Banister backed up his words. In the somber post-game clubhouse, he hugged each player, thanking him for his contributions and speaking of bigger days to come.

For the moment, Banister admitted, “it hurts.”

Yordano Ventura calls Jose Bautista a “nobody” and accuses him of stealing signs | HardballTalk

Yordano Ventura might be a little volatile.

Yordano Ventura, who was in the middle of the beefing after the benches cleared, had his own words for Bautista. They were also on Twitter but were since deleted. Jeff Passan of Yahoo, however, describes them here:

In those tweets, according to two people who read and translated them, Ventura said to Bautista: “We’ll meet again later and if you do that with me, you’ll see what I’m about. I don’t care about anybody. I used to respect you, but you’re a nobody. … You got lucky this time, but MLB doesn’t get canceled after this season. Keep running your mouth. … You need to stop giving signs. You’re gonna get it from me for being fresh and you really are a nobody.”
