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.”

  1. Hitting Stuff With Wooden Bats
  2. Throwing Stuff
  3. Kicking Stuff
  4. 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.
