Cheap Shot?

Can someone explain how this is a “cheap shot”?

APTOPIX Blue Jays Rangers Baseball
Toronto Blue Jays Jose Bautista (19) gets hit by Texas Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor (12) after Bautista slid into second in the eighth inning of a baseball game at Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas, Sunday May 15, 2016. (Richard W. Rodriguez/Star-Telegram via AP)

I’m watching ESPN and they are showing the fight.  I believe Eduardo Perez said, the Blue Jays feel that Odor’s punch was a “cheap shot”.  I’m sorry, WTF, Odor’s right cross was anything but “cheap”. Is any punch that connects, “cheap”.

Addendum: May 16th, 2016.  

Now I’ve heard everything. Christopher Russo of MLB Network has been screaming that Rougy’s bomb on Bautista was a “sucker punch”.  What universe is he living in?  He then proceeds to say that Odor was running away after the punch.  Are we watching the same video?  Actually, I saw it live as well.  Bautista has to be given credit for not being KO’d but Rougy wasn’t running away from anything.  In fact, it looks like he was moving forward, going in for the finish, when Beltre broke it up.  Also, it looks like Rougy was throwing rights at Pillar as well.  I thought these hosts were supposed to be “unbiased”, like the news. 🙂

  1. MIKE, you have it exactly!!! Bautista was loading up to throw at Odor, Rougy just beat him to the punch. You should have heard Russo, he was apoplectic. WTF?
