Colin Cowherd is leaving ESPN and putting a blazing trail behind him.

On "The Herd with Colin Cowherd," the radio host talked about the complexity of baseball and didn't hold back.

"It's too complex?" Cowherd asked. "I've never bought into that 'baseball is too complex.' Really? A third of the sports is from the Dominican Republic. The Dominican Republic has not been known in my lifetime as having world class academic abilities."

Blue Jays rightfielder, and proud Dominican, Jose Bautista took issue with Cowherd's harsh take on things, and tweeted to him for an explanation.

This won't be the last we hear about this matter.
