I am really beginning to hate this walk-off celebrations... I can see it for a home run, but having one for a walk or a single is stretching it...

But for a hit-by-pitch? Really?

didn't see anything over the top there. winning a 12 inning game would be quite gratifying and rewarding.

I think it's more of a joke than anything, I don't mind seeing the players have fun sometimes

The Prince Fielder bowling ball one a few years ago was ridiculous.

That resulted in a Barry Zito curveball to the ribs for his transgressions!

I think the HBP celebration is hilarious. It's more of a "tongue and cheek" type of thing than anything.

I would do the same thing, because it is such a ridiculous way to win. Sometimes its fun to go full douchebag. SELL IT

I am waiting for the walk-off wild pitch/passed ball... Does the winning team celebrate with the pitcher and catcher?

They would most likely celebrate the winning runner. I don't really see your beef, should they not celebrate a hard fought W in that case? Maybe put their heads down and walk into the dugout? I'm confused.

Walk off balk would probably have to be the worst.

Isn't that how Henderson Alvarez won his no hitter last year?

morales i believe.


He broke his leg, that's it. And he missed basically an entire season because he's a very slow healer apparently.

I guess the degenerative cysts, scar tissue and the second surgery that was needed didn't count then. What a wuss.

I don't think you need to have a mob like celebration on something like this... A home run definitely, but a HBP or a walk?

Your Giants pitchers and their unwritten rules.

Not on the list of dumb walk-off celebrations, anything Puig does, because its automatically awesome.
