    Always! I love it. Joey Bats doesn't care if he's down 6 he'll do it

    YES! Baseball needs more celebrating and ****iness imo. Makes it much more entertaining

    I'm also a fan of touchdown dances after ground-rule doubles.

    I'm fine with it. Especially when it's in a big moment in the game. Gets the batting team fired up, and if at home, gets the home crowd excited.

    What's the difference between a bat flip and a pitcher celebrating after a big strikeout. A pitcher celebrating doesn't seem to get the same negative reaction than a bat flip does for some reason.

    I love them, because next time they come to the plate the pitches to that batter become interesting

    Exactly. I enjoy it when my favorite teams/players do a flip and am excited to see those I despise come back to the plate for their comeuppance.

    I can see the younger generation wants more flair and excitement but down 4 runs he looked like a jerk

    I don't like them. But I'm old school. I liked the way Thome would point the bat to the outfield seats, hit a walk off homer, and raise his right fist as he ran down to 1st base, like he did the day he hit his 500th homer.

    Or the way Jayson Werth would hit a home run in the 2008 playoffs, slam his bat down, point and stare into the dugout, which helped energize and lead the Phillies to the 2008 World Series.

    My favorite was Joaquin Andujar, shooting the pistol after getting a k, batters wanted to kill him m.

    I don't have any problem with batflips. As mentioned above, there are pitchers that celebrate after K's etc. It is curious that they can show emotion but batters can't. I like to see intensity. Joey Bats rubs people the wrong way, I doubt there would have been as much of a reaction if any other Jays player hit a HR. fwiw- there's not much to celebrate if you are down several runs late in the game.

    Then there was Willie Montanez who would catch fly balls while whipping the glove and catching it on the move. He used to get knocked down a lot.

    A younger Bonds in Pittsburgh would slap both of his shoulders with his glove, then swipe the ball out of the air. Or you could just be bada$$ Kevin Mitchell and not use a glove at all!
