A radio station in Dallas has invited fans to come down to the station to sign a giant "Get Well Soon" board for Jose Bautista after taking Rougned Odor's right hook to the chin. Bautista spoke with reporters after the game—Odor did not—and it seems like he is not feeling any ill effects from the punch. His ego may be a little bruised, but even there any damage appears very minor. Bautista said Odor was able to catch him square in the jaw because he pushed him off balance but also acknowledged that "he got me pretty good, so I have to give him that. It takes a little bit bigger man to knock me down."
With Bautista's health taken care of, we can now fully enjoy this radio station's trolling of the Blue Jays outfielder. 105.3 The Fan in Dallas set up the shrine to Joey Bats's chin and told fans to come down to sign it, and sign it they have.
Obviously "Don't Mess With Texas" is like a highway sign on this thing, but there are some other hidden gems if you look closely. Such as, "Sorry about your face!" And "Good luck at the dentist. Come back soon." Or simply, "Joey, you suck," and the related "Suck it, Joey Bats."
It's just a shame that the Rangers were such chickenshits about when they hit Bautista, if only because they won't be able to give him the card in person this year unless they meet up in the playoffs again this fall.
