...And on the next episode of Colby vs. Colby, Colby Rasmus drops down a bunt and hilarity ensues. Stay tuned for more...
Texas Rangers starting pitcher Colby Lewis wasn't exactly a fan of Blue Jays outfielder Rasmus's decision to beat a shift by lowering his bat for a bunt on Saturday in the Rangers' 4-1 loss to the Blue Jays.
Rasmus then beat out Lewis's throw to first.
Those who are well versed in the ancient art of lip reading may be able to make out the words "swing the bat," which appear to be uttered by the struggling starter (6.37 ERA, 2.84 WHIP).
Lewis also told MLB.com he "didn't appreciate" the move by Rasmus and implied it was bad baseball etiquette, which some people thought was, well, a stretch.
Colby Lewis misplaced his anger over Colby Rasmus' bunt. He should be mad at himself for his 6.37 ERA and his team for its 39-58 record.— Andy Resnik (@AndyResnik) July 20, 2014
What do you think? Was Rasmus wrong to bunt against the shift? Or was Lewis wrong to get upset?
