The Gehrig Bat non-posure


I was reading Hal McCoy's blog:

http://www.daytondailynews.com/blogs/content/shared-gen/blogs/dayton/cincinnatireds/entries/2009/07/04/to_pitch_or_not_to_pitch_to_pu.html#comments

He describes how this dude Braude brought an actual Lou Gehrig bat to the clubhouse prior to today's game for the Reds' players to hold and pose with.  He then adds that one player didn't pose and replied "Why, it's just a bat?".  McCoy refuses to name the player, but he clearly wanted to stir the pot, why else include it?

I get annoyed by shots like that because, well, they start to nag at me, despite my better inclinations to ignore them.  Now it's got me wondering who said it (probably because I'm way too tired to be thinking at all). 

It's not a huge issue (it's not as though the un-named player failed to save a drowning baby or something), but I think McCoy should say who if it was important enough to bring it up at all.  Now, (until I get some sleep lol) I;ll be thinking one of those guys out on teh field dissed Gehrig! I'm going to have to assume that it was Bronson.  He would be very afraid of any piece of lumber that hit a homerun right now lol.  Or Pujols.  He is my new Goldstein.
