Playoff baseball, are you kidding me?
I briefly checked Twitter, knowing that the game was close, and that particular website was LOSING ITS DAMN MIND. Turn on the game and the first thing I see is cleared benches hear from Harold Reynolds talking about how this has been a historic inning that you will remember where you were for. Great. Got here just in time.
Got a recap though, and it turns out that after the Rangers made a billion errors, Jose Bautista hit a ball to Pluto, tossed his bat halfway to the dugout and incited a riot in the sky dome.
THE GREATEST BAT FLIP IN BASEBALL HISTORY https://t.co/1vBhDcrRmt

The word for that is savage. Others have used it but I am going to as well, because that is simply the correct term for that bat-flip.
Even better from the side.
From there the benches cleared twice, debris rained from the stands and the crowd wen’t WILD.
The MLB has been suspending accounts for posting gifs, meaning that by the end of this one, twitter will consist of three accounts, all of whom are dedicated to posting cat pictures. (which is totally justified because the MLBGifs official account is on top of it…or oh wait, that account was last updated 4 hours ago with ‘On this date in 1986.’ NAILED IT!)
Now I’m here in the library shamelessly watching the game full screen on my iPad and typing this. We have two more of these games, and then 2 more playoff rounds.
HEY SPORTS, I HAVE GRADES! I HAVE THINGS TO GET DONE! LET UP FOR ME FOR ONE NIGHT! UNBELIEVABLE! O MAY NEVER READ AGAIN!
