We memed the Blue Jays/Rangers brawl!
Monday, May 16, 2016
Sunday's big brawl between Jose Batista of the Toronto Blue Jays and Rougned Odor of the Texas Rangers was about more than Batista's hard slide into Odor's knees. It goes back to last year's MLB playoffs, where the Blue Jays mounted a comeback and advanced to the AL Championship thanks to Batista's home run, which was accentuated with a cocky bat flip that many found unsportsmanlike. Now, it looks like the only flipping going on is with Batista's sunglasses.
