Base runners will do anything to mess with fielders. Bounce around. Yell stuff. Clap. Chew their gum really hard.
Curtis Granderson is willing to go next level with this distraction game. As this GIF from Friday’s spring training tilt against the Cardinals demonstrates:
Non-roster invitee Scott Moore basically has Granderson’s hands all over him.
If Granderson went to a bar and touched a lady like that, he’d get beaten up and tossed in the street.
The more I watch the GIF, the more disturbed I become. Basically, that is a molestation.
Baseball wants to make itself safer by eliminating collisions? It should also make itself less disgusting by eliminating feel-ups.
Really Granderson. I mean yeah, I know you want to gain an advantage. But dang. You almost touched him…there.
