The Blue Jays and Rangers brawled during the eighth inning of Sunday’s game in Texas and it was glorious. Tensions have been high between the clubs since Jose Bautista ended the Rangers season last year with his all-time bat flip.
Bautista was sliding into second base in a pretty shady attempt to break up a double play and Rougned Odor was having none of it.
That might be the greatest punch ever thrown in an MLB game, Nolan Ryan clowning Ryan Ventura is the only other contender I can think of.
The internet enjoyed this and the playful mocking of Joey Bats started pretty quickly.
