Only downside is that he might have lit a fire under the Nats behinds. LINK

I'm for certain unwritten rules but this is just ridiculous. There's no way he meant that apology either, and he shouldn't.

Baseballs unwritten rules are part of the reason why baseball is being held back and viewership is down

Weak excuse. Arrogance has no place in the game. A little humility goes a long way. Should have already baked it into his cake.

Agree, and i'm a Bregman fan but not much for cocky egos.

He's apologizing cause you don't pimp a HR in the first, too much ball to play. He got punked. His team lost, didn't score another run after his bat relay, which failed too. Lost going away. Chump.

Doesn't bother me but it's not because he carried his bat it's the connotation that he showed the pitcher up.

I don't think many people view Breg as the type to intentionally be disrespectful. He just got caught up in a big moment. He knows where he went wrong and he'll be better for it.

baseballs unwritten rules are so fricking dumb. Having to apologize for that is ignorant. baseball players can be big fat pussies at times. flip the bat or carry it to 1st base if you want. show emotion how you see fit. these arent even unsportsmanlike acts

Baseballs unwritten rules are part of what makes it so special. It's the greatest of all sports. It isn't that he did something unsportsmanlike. It's that he did something (unintentionally) that his opponents viewed as a slap in the face and they got up because of it. Guys don't like feeling like their pitcher got disrespected. He knew it. Altuve knew it too which is why he was in his ear afterward.
