Sporting News: Bat flips are so last season.

Bat flips are so pedestrian. Or, as the video states, so last season. Time to switch things up. Say hello to The Swashbuckler, The Jockey, The Lullaby, The Grandpa and The Drum Major. Worthy alternatives all.

Stay to the end for the Edgar Martinez punchline.

I don't get it. Is there another video with an EdMar punchline?

The Mariners always seem to have good videos. Ichiro's uncanny Sean Connery impression stands out.
