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.

Kendrys Morales?

I think it was like 3 years ago at this point.

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.

Who was it that blew out their ACL jumping on home plate a year or two ago?


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.
