Blue Jays right fielder Jose Bautista tracked down a fly ball off the bat of Royals second baseman Ben Zobrist for the final out of the fifth inning in Game 1 of the ALCS last night. As the Toronto slugger began to run off the field, he motioned as if he was going to flip the ball into the stands until…nope, he decided to hold on to it.

Bautista kept a straight face throughout. Cold-blooded. The other day I complimented Astros bullpen catcher Javier Bracamonte for giving baseballs and gear to fans after the team was eliminated from the ALDS, but I can also appreciate the art of the heel.
