How do you deal with your anger?
Some people throw stuff, punch stuff or hit stuff with wooden bats. After giving up a game-tying homer to Paul Goldschmidt in the bottom of the ninth, Orioles closer Jim Johnson kicked a bat rack in the dugout.
Of the Anger Expression Power Rankings, I would rank “kicking stuff” third behind “throwing stuff” and “hitting stuff with wooden bats.”
- Hitting Stuff With Wooden Bats
- Throwing Stuff
- Kicking Stuff
- Punching Stuff
Nothing against Johnson’s form of expression, but you’re much more unlikely to break a toe if you hit something with a bat or throw something.
