This MLB postseason is shaping up to be a bad one for inanimate objects. Whenever there is a controversial call, or a team not playing well, usually someone is taking their anger out on a stationery item.

Tuesday night, Cubs pitcher Hector Rondon added to the violence by bashing a water fountain in the team’s 5-2 loss in Game 3 of the NLCS.

Rondon should have been upset; the Cubs lost an important Game 3 on some costly mental mistakes and may be all but eliminated from the postseason. However, that doesn’t make it alright to take his frustrations out on a poor fountain.

I mean, what exactly did it do to him? I doubt the hydration it provides accounted for any of miscues the team made.
