There was a short retarded article on Yahoo! about Yoenis Cespedes breaking the "unwritten rules," and Jason Vargas being pissy about it, by watching the rocket he hit for a couple seconds before rounding the bases.
And this reminded me how stupid the unwritten rules are.
Some of the rules the irritate me the most:
Don't bunt during a no-hitter. Really? The pitcher's potentially historic game is more important than getting on base and scoring runs? No. frig You. If your team can't field a bunt, you don't deserve a no-hitter.
Don't steal bases when you're way ahead. Every team has seen an 8 or 9 run inning at some point. Teams (specifically, managers) shouldn't get crappy about opponents that steal bases in the 8th or 9th inning with a big lead.
Don't watch a HR. Don't like it when Big Papi flips his bat and pauses to watch his bomb sail into the right field bleachers? Don't throw him a high fastball over the middle of the plate.
which ones do you hate the most?
