Austin Hays called up

I’m not a fan of players calling attention to themselves, but to me that was just a spontaneous moment from a very young player who made a great play.   Bothers me far less than a guy standing around posing after a homer.    

It all depends on the situation, the team, the circumstances. How many guys hit homeruns and beat on their chests afterwards?

The situation is that Hays is playing in his 17th ML game and he just took a HR away from Vlad JR.

But that little dance Jones did is fine?

Odd lines you draw.

They are kids, let 'em be kids.

Vlad didn't mind.

I think there is a time and place to celebrate, this is not one of those times. Just my opinion though.

I can’t believe I just noticed that they gave Hays Markakis’ old number.    Nick was one of my all-time favorites and I’m hoping Hays will become one.

He wore #18 in 2017.

When is the time to celebrate? You don't like celebrations during the game and you don't like celebrations after the game (since you mention you hated the post-game pies). So the time to celebrate is...before the game?

I think you can celebrate your individual plays if the team you are on is .500 or better.

That was my takeaway.

My takeaway is celebrate every play, every catch, every homerun, every win, every loss, every stolen base, every walk. Every intentional walk. Let's start celebrating every strike, why not?

That’s a weird extrapolation from celebrating perhaps the most important defensive play in the game. By a young player.

Just for the record, I'm a huge Hays fan. I saw him in Frederick many times, I'm rooting for him. I just don't get the beating on the chest after making a catch in a meaningless game, in a meaningless season. Again, just my opinion. That doesn't mean it's right, just my opinion.

It isn't meaningless to him.
