Welcoming The Weekend With That Time Fernando Tatis Jr. Disgraced The Game


Estimated Reading Time: 2 Minutes

You made it! It’s finally the end of another work week. Sure, the weekend has lost a bit of its luster lately, but no work is still no work, even if it is just sitting at home doing nothing. I mean, unless you have kids or a family or responsibilities and if so, that’s a “you” problem.

After Fernando Tatis Jr. signed his mega extension, it got me thinking about that time he defiled and disgraced the great game of baseball.

What you are about to watch is NSFW. Please keep all children, impressionable minds and baseball writers over the age of 50 at a safe distance.

Disgusting! I can almost hear Ty Cobb and Rogers Hornsby rolling over in their graves while baseball writers everywhere clutch their collective pearls. What an outrage. The audacity to not only swing at a 3-0 pitch but to do so while the bases are loaded. If that were not enough to vilify Mr. Tatis Jr. then the violence that he inflicted upon this poor, defenseless baseball will surely require a conversation with anyone who has sired offspring.

How do we reward such disregard for tradition? This blatant disregard for the unwritten rules of a children’s game? $365 million, that’s how.

I don’t know about you but this is not MY baseball. This kind of exuberance, excitement and passion have no place in the game I love. It’s almost as if this ‘ball player’ was trying to put himself in the best position to ‘win.’ In the middle of a baseball game no less! Someone clearly was never told there is no I in team. Pathetic.

I apologize that I cannot muster anything more. I am sick just writing this. Hug your kids people. I need to go lay down.

Ts & Ps, please and thank you.

Josh grew up in the midwest and upon graduating from the University of Iowa he wanted to see the world. After 4 years in Jacksonville he decided he was cultured enough and moved on to Birmingham England (known to the locals as the Detroit of the UK) and then west to San Francisco before settling in NYC. He pays his bills working in finance making sure the 1% remains on top. When he is not selling his soul and unable to look himself in the mirror, he spends his time writing mean things about sports while his dog, Sweet Dee, silently judges from her spot on the couch. He is very biased and never wrong. He would also like to thank Rotowire for never changing their NBA League Pass and MLB.TV passwords from that year when he was an NBA Beat Writer for the Nuggets for some reason.
