Hey, Rob Manfred, the A-Rod Slayer, flip this.

What an asshole.

MLB commissioner Rob Manfred: Bat flips good for the game
BY SI WIRE Posted: Fri Apr. 1, 2016 si.com

MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said on ESPN Radio’s Mike & Mike that he believes bat flips are “good for the game.”  ...

In the interview, Manfred also addressed Bryce Harper’s comments about baseball being “a tired sport because you can’t express yourself.” ...

... each generation of players defines what’s acceptable behaviors. It’s not always been exactly the same, and I kind of line up with Bryce Harper on this ...

That should cover a walk off home run. If you behave like Jose Bautista or David Ortiz, your accomplishment does not count...

It's easy for the excuse makers to make this old farts v. new whatevers. Bryce Harper has mumbled something about making the game more exiting...

Then there's the best player, Mike Trout.

Los Angeles Angels slugger Mike Trout does not condone bat flipping

Angels slugger Mike Trout disagrees with Bryce Harper’s stance on baseball needing more flair...


... Trout told the Los Angeles Times not to expect such theatrics from him...

Trout said dramatic bat flips disrespect the pitcher ...


I'm guessing that Bautista, Ortiz and even Harper would consider some acts as inappropriate.
