As the article states...he's got a championship to race for! But sounds like he will have to eventually.

Que a douche nozzle to claim it is "karma" or something...

Tomac and/or Anderson for 2020.....

If this was tomac this would already be a 4 page bashing thread

Just an excuse to use for Eli whipping that ass the rest of the season.

I tried to use a "thumbs up" emoji. I see that failed. Thumb emoji must be broken amirite?

So now Baggett has an excuse for getting beat. What a load of shit!

|

7/14/2017 6:05 AM

So does Tomac get an asterisk next to his championship this year then? You know, like Dungeys? Or all though other previous champs

|

7/14/2017 6:08 AM

Agreed. Its going to be an excuse for baggett. Dude beat tomac like once or twice and started acting like a cocky douche and this is karma putting back on the ground.

That injury is gnarly. I had what the Ortho called "Skiers Thumb" (not sure if that is what Blake has or not?). Anyway I tore the ligament that prevents the thumb from going all the way backwards and hitting your forearm. That shit hurt boys!

I would assume this means he is out of MXDN team contention. Bummer.

Let me simplify it to make it so you can comprehend what I typed in my previous post. I'm implying that if tomac was the one with torn ligaments in his thumb and his team sent out a PR. This thread that we are typing in, the one you're commenting in, would be at least 4 pages of shit talk about tomac and this being an excuse. Is that easy enough for you sodipop?? BTW Shouldnt you be out perfectly prepping a track somewhere?

I love threads like this, it exposes who the fantards are. I'm bummed, not because I like BB, but because we've already lost two challengers to the title last weekend. With MM25 and Anderson losing points at Southwick, it's going to be a snooze fest the rest of the season unless Baggett can step up. Who wants to watch Tomac run away without a challenge? Oh wait...

Gibby knows the real deal, so I'm going with his response above. Blake ran 2nd last weekend at the Wick. He did that with an injured thumb! I believe he took second by a pretty convincing margin too, right? That was quite a ride by the #4.

I thought it was interesting that he kept it pretty hidden in the post race interviews, he was sitting right in front of the camera. If it was me I woulda flashed that thing for everyone to see

No cause Baggett only beat him strait up one Moto.

Sucks that he has an injury but I don't think it makes a difference in the championship . I think people overreacted to the one straight up moto win Bagget had against Tomac.

Well, actually Baggett was the only one that over reacted after that win smile

Seriously?
He won 2 our of 14 motos
hardly comparable to for example 2015 when Tomac went 1-1-1-1-1 before getting injured

I dunno, I have ligament issues in a messed up thumb and if you really look close it's thicker than my other (good) thumb but it really doesn't look like much.

That's what is my concern. Anderson hurt his back so who knows how bad that will linger. Now Baggett has a hurt thumb. Fuck I hope one of them man up and go hurt. I think either one would want to go. But Anderson for sure has a better mxdn record. Although Baggett has been really fast and has shown that coming thru the pack can be done well.

I hope this doesn't mean he's out for the USGP.
