Perhaps Steve Blass should have read my article on Javy Baez?
There seems to be a movement in baseball, wanting the game to revert back to a no-fun, go out there and pretend like you’ve been there before mentality. The game has grown past that, the game has evolved to a game where walking your first six steps after a homer is acceptable. Hell, we all love bat flips, and there are articles dedicated to talking about and grading bat flips.
But here we are, actual baseball announcers talking about a player (who has brought a TON of fans to the game) and how they can’t get behind him because he’s flashy.

Maybe Steve is jealous of players that have ability, and who just might be able to retain their talents?
