Remember Jose Bautista’s epic bat flip in last year’s MLB playoffs? The Texas Rangers do, and yesterday they made it very clear they didn’t appreciate it as much as Jays nation did.
In his final at bat of the Jays/Rangers game in Arlington yesterday, Bautista got (intentionally) hit by a pitch. That put him on first base. Then, on an ground out, Bautista slid hard into second base and this happened.
Whoa! That escalated quickly. The brawl resulted in a number of ejections and I expect we’ll hear from MLB about suspensions today.
