Fine Giants who take called third strikes

The video above is from 2012, but it could have been yesterday, as his so-called hitters stood with bats on their shoulders during crucial at-bats late in yesterday's game. 

Unless it's clearly a bad call, Bochy should start fining hitters who do this, like Gregor Blanco (called third strike to end the 8th inning); Ehire Adrianza (called third strike in the 9th inning); and Andre Susac (called third strike in the 9th to end the fucking game!).

Anyone who plays baseball learns in Little League to swing at anything close when he/she has two strikes. Standing with the bat on your shoulder and taking a called third strike is shameful, especially when it's done by major league players.
