Mouton 1

While one might reasonably suggest that giant LSU junior and future/former major-leaguer Lyle Mouton isn’t technically flipping his bat in the two animated GIFs embedded here, it’s also entirely the case that Mouton’s intentions are identical to those of the bat flipper. “I have all the talents,” Mouton announces with his actions — not unlike boy poet Arthur Rimbaud, that is, who said the same thing over a hundred years earlier in French words.

    This would appear to be a combination of the bat flip and the mic drop. How have we not heard of this pioneer before now?

    I see the roots of Yasiel. The TV series of the same name is in post-production.
