But in the end, Phillips’ choice is unconventional: San Francisco’s Hunter Pence, whose on-deck routine is, in Phillips’ words, “the most funked-up stuff I’ve ever seen.”
“I love his swag,” Phillips says admiringly. “He has swag. Nobody else plays the game like him. His swag is hustle, hustle, hustle, hustle. … He’s unique. I call him the unicorn, (because) you’ll never see another guy swing like him. You’ll never see nobody else play like him. David Eckstein used to be one of my favorite players. He was totally different. I like people that are different. Those guys can change a whole game by their teammates feeding off their swag.”

Third Cab Driver (Peter Falk): What's the matter, what happened to you? What was ya, in some kind of initiation?

Is uncivilized a derogatory term now?
But these choreographed dance routines and finger wagging and butt planting in meaningless games...
Who gets to decide which games are the meaningless ones?
Carlos Gomez should have high-stepped all the way down the 3B line then danced after crossing the plate.
#51 Johnny Rodgers used to run the ball in backwards -- sometimes from as far out as the 10 yard line. As you can imagine players on the other teams took this very well.
He's wrong IMO about the AA participation thing though. It's not because of a lack of swag, it's just a numbers game.
No, I think Phillips is dead on.
cultures - generally speaking - are just different?
Acknowledgement of difference without (implicit or explicit) judgement of difference tends to be very difficult.
