Texas Rangers starting pitcher Colby Lewis wasn't exactly a fan of Blue Jays outfielder Rasmus's decision to beat a shift by lowering his bat for a bunt on Saturday in the Rangers' 4-1 loss to the Blue Jays.
Rasmus then beat out Lewis's throw to first.
With Texas down 2-0 in the fifth inning, Lewis appeared visibly perplexed at the audacity of the Jays slugger's antics. Watch the MLB.com video by clicking here and see for yourself.
Those who are well versed in the ancient art of lip reading may be able to make out the words "swing the bat," which appear to be uttered by the struggling starter (6.37 ERA, 2.84 WHIP).
Lewis also told MLB.com he "didn't appreciate" the move by Rasmus and implied it was bad baseball etiquette, which some people thought was, well, a stretch.
What do you think? Was Rasmus wrong to bunt against the shift? Or was Lewis wrong to get upset?Suggest a correction
