Just watched Milwaukee humiliate the Cubs, which seems somehow like payback for yesterday's game. But I couldn't help noticing, as I've seen many times before, the way baseball players scratch and grope themselves inappropriately, chew gum or whatever with their mouths wide open, and spit constantly. And it's not just one player or one team -- it's the whole bunch of them. What's going on here? My parents worked hard to teach me that those behaviors are bad manners in public. What about being a professional ballplayer makes it ok? Oh, and a fair number of them are mouth breathers too -- even pitchers fresh to the mound who aren't winded yet. Anyone have an opinion on this very important topic?
