Oswaldo Arcia is naturally frustrated at his performance as of late. He takes it out on his bat. Splinters ensue:

I was at the game - I had front row seats on the overhang in right field. Oswaldo was looking up at the screen behind me while they replayed the play at 1st under review. I yelled down, "hey Oswaldo, hit one up here," and waved my glove at him. He acknowledged me with a smile and a nod. That was his next at bat.
I think he was mad that he didn't deliver.... ;-)

"He’s a young player,'' Gardenhire said. "He's got things to learn, yes, but he gives a flip, I know that. Today was a rough day for him. That wasn’t very good breaking it over your knee, but he's been busting his tail. I'm real proud of that kid, because it hasn't been going great for him, and he's been battling pretty damn hard.''
Just nice to see him have the kid's back.

Aaah, that's the stuff.
Maybe if he'd battle his tail off he'd do better?
It sounds like RG is willing to let Arcia work through it, which is encouraging. I liked watching him up close: he is receptive to fans, and seems like a good teammate as well.
