    I'm cool with watching it and yelling at your dugout. I could do without the yelling at the opposing dugout. One comes across as kids having fun. One comes across as being a dick.

    So Dave Roberts comes across as a dick for yelling at Grisham from the dugout?

    Grisham showed out and it elicited a reaction. Pretty simple and I am not sure why you are so worked up.

    I don't blame someone for yelling back. Its ok to say your guy was a dick.

    haha I'm not worked up at all. i thought it was a great baseball moment and don't care if any dodger player yelled at grisham while he was rounding 3rd. i take issue with the "you shouldn't do that to a hall of fame pitcher" bull shit, but other than that, I thought everything about the whole thing was great. i disagree wholeheartedly that yelling to/from the opposing dugout makes someone look like a dick

    If the roles were reversed, your opinion would be reversed.

    Trying to catch up with what happens with Grisham and the Dodgers. Don’t mind a guy celebrating a homerun etc but when he starts staring down players or the pitcher , that would piss me off or anyone of you as a competitor. Get why there would be some chirping. I’m all for it and makes for a fun rivalry

    this is the biggest padres/dodgers series in at least 15 years, and probably closer to 24 (back to the 1996 season-ending series where the padres swept the dodgers to steal the division). there is lots of emotion on both sides. it would be ridiculous to expect teams/players not to celebrate and for the other team to react. give me jawing back and forth from the dugout. give me bat flips and admiring the shit out of home runs, and all the other great stuff that comes with series like this. I'll be upset when mookie does it to us tonight, but that's baseball and turnabout is fair play. so long as it doesn't devolve into hitting batters with pitches, give me all the energy and excitement baseball can offer

    Yes. Celebrate. Bat flip. All that. Yelling at the other dugout while rounding 3rd? No.

    team stop policing the harmless actions of young players, especially minorities

    but maybe you consider hurting Kershaw's feelings to be a serious offense

    As a fan, do whatever you want.

    If I'm a player on the Dodgers, that reaction from Grisham is probably going in the Word doc and will be brought back at a later date when things aren't going as well for him.

    As long as long baseballs aren't getting thrown at hitters because of it and we're not saying someone can't do it, I don't have a problem with any of it.

    probably my favorite moment of the last few years was Chris Paul shimmying directly on Steph Curry in the 2018 playoffs.

    I can't imagine a world where I don't enjoy celebration/shit talk in sports.

    This ump has called so many of our games this year, and he’s been awful in every single one. Multiple calls for the padres that were wrong as well, so at least he was fair?

    I really liked last year when Mad Bum responded to criticism for him being an asshole to players expressing themselves. Something like "People say to let the kids be themselves, well I'm just being myself. I'm an asshole and I'm just being myself"

    Sometimes players/coaches/managers just talk shit to talk shit. We don't have to bring in the judge and jury every time it happens to determine who is right and wrong.

    Last night Moran lost his cup rounding the bases and it slowed him way down. Bell got thrown out at second and the reds challenged and Moran hadn’t crossed the plate in time lmao
