Tool Of The Week: Bautista or Odor? [VOTE]
This week's Tool of the Week vote centers on the baseball brawl between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Texas Rangers. In particular, Jose Bautista vs Rougned Odor. Which side of the argument are you on?
Is Bautista the Tool of the Week for the late slide? Is Odor the Tool of the Week for throwing the punch?
Bautista got hit by a 96 mph fastball. Perhaps the Rangers were getting back at him for that infamous bat flip during last fall's playoff series. Once he had the chance to run from first base to second base, he slid late and took out Texas shortstop Rougned Odor. Admit it...the slide is a 'tool' of a play.
Odor landed the 'punch of all baseball punches' on the jaw of Bautista after the hard slide. By the way, the umpires ruled it was an illegal slide and called Bautista and the batter running from home to first out too. But a punch to the jaw in the middle of the game is quite the 'tool' thing to do.
So you make the call...Click and vote for your Tool of the Week!
