i say yes Scooter. a broken bat or a batter letting go of a bat is exciting, as long as no one gets hurt. i love to see the players dive to get out of the way of the bat. (Yankee #11 in the 7th inning lost/the bat flew out of his hands, it looked like into the ray's dugout.) that is the kind of bat i meant. however, i saw the bat you were talking about flying, and really i hope that is not the new mascot. it looked like a very large bat to me. it was horrible. sorry i got it wrong. and yes congrats to the rays. and go big yanks.
