Someone called Clippard's emotion swagger and that he hoped he never stops doing it. Which is fine by me. I accept the fact that players are all different and they have different ways of expressing their emotions while some don't show it at all. But that also is true for players on other teams. Phillips is probably an emotional guy and he was pumped up after that play. I don't think he's an jerk for it.
I honestly haven't noticed Clippard's so-called "swagger" - perhaps I'm just unobservant. Regardless, if other teams players or fans were offended by that, I would understand. That said, a pitcher celebrating after he wrings someone up is quite a different matter than a guy doing his best impersonation of King Kong after he just plowed through someone. This is baseball, not football.
And I doubt I would've plunked him. I can't be angry with someone because he beats me on the field fairly.
No one's mad that he made the play, quit pretending to be a dumbass.
I guess that's why some people hate certain teams (because they own us on the field). Having said that, the Nats decided to plunk him and I'm OK with that too. I would rather we take it out on them on the field but it seems we couldn't do that tonight.
lol oh no, you got us. NO ONE here would've felt the exact same way if the scoreboard were reversed
