MLB Best Bat Flips Of All-Time

Yesterday Tampa Bay Rays slugger Logan Morrison bat flipped a bat to the moon. It may have been the best Bat Flip of the current MLB season.

While Morrison’s is impressive, but how does it rank up against the best of all-time?

Joey Batts In The Bat Flip Heard Around The World

Toronto Blue Jays hitter Jose Bautista hit a go ahead home run in the 2015 playoffs and flipped the bat to the sky with the stadium erupting in celebration. Bautista is known for pimping home runs in this fashion. But smoking the go ahead home run in a playoff game? Probably a no doubter greatest bat flip of all-time.

Big Papi Blasts A Three Run Shot Like He Is Taking Out The Trash

Boston Red Sox Slugger David Ortiz hit 541 home runs with 35 of them coming at Tropicana Field. The one below is just one of those home runs, but Papi’s bat flip just shows why he owned Tampa during his career.

What do you do after hitting your fourth home run of a game? Tomahawk it into the ground is what Carlos Delegado did.

Asdrubal Cabrera Walks Off In Fashion

Cabrera’s celebration was one of pure joy. He was going to celebrate like that even if the bat wasn’t there.

What is your favorite bat flip of all-time?

Minimum Expectations for the 2018 Red Sox

Last year, it was Chris Sale; in 2016, the exorbitantly expensive David Price was all the hype. Both of these roundly heralded saviors produced the same underwhelming results. Another short-winded trip to the playoffs; another bummer of a year.

The Red Sox simply cannot afford a third consecutive first-round exit, in the 2018 postseason. And it seems that Dave Dombrowski knows this. In an attempt to prevent car-flipping anarchy in the streets, he fired the overseer of all this recent failure (his direct subordinate) – John Farrell.

Now the Sox will be heading into next season with a newfangled remedy. No, it’s not a hundred-million dollar player. This time around, management has received the upgrade. It’s the newly hired manager, Alex Cora, who will be charged with the burden of resurrecting one of the most venerated franchises in professional sports.

On Monday, Cora was formally introduced to Boston as the new manager (or scapegoat).

Good luck, buddy! You’re gonna need it.  

Should Boston fans really expect an appreciable change to be affected by just one man? After all, this is exactly what we’ve done, to no avail, for the past few years. And if Cora really represents the end-all-be-all solution, what is a realistic accomplishment for him, and his club, in the first season of his tenure?

The asseveration has lingered on the tip of Boston’s tongue, ever since the ALDS – “That could have been us!” And it’s true, it could have been the Sox hoisting that trophy, on Wednesday night.

After experiencing an extremely disheartening loss, what is the most natural and most mature thing to do? Search for a scapegoat, of course. Why accept the reality of a bad situation? It’s much easier to deflect those negative feelings towards somebody or something else.

In an effort to alleviate the aching heart of Red Sox Nation, let’s examine the three individuals who are the most responsible for Boston’s defeat in the 2017 ALDS. After all, somebody must be to blame for this debacle! It certainly wasn’t the team as a collective entity, but singular players (or managers like John Farrell) who can be villainized for underperforming in the series.
