Wow, I'm shocked that so many Sox fans in this thread loved the Huff thing. :-b

Looks like I have an opposite opinion of most on the board.

I don't mind if a pitcher gets emotional and fist pumps or what have you. That is, only if he's really excited. What I can't stand is the rehearsed celebration. So, if Joba is only doing that thing because he knows it's his "signature" celebration move, then yeah, I hope he gets mocked to hell for it.

I am unsure why you can't showboat in baseball. Seems like emotion and expression should be part of the sport. It shows that players are human and also their character.

I haven't seen any of these showboating events. Anyone have links handy?

If not, what date they each happen on? I'll look them up on MLB.com if I have to.

Thanks! :-)

Meh he should have done it just once at the plate or something. It was kind of stupid for him to do that twice in one AB. Loses effectiveness and he looks like a douche.
