The New York Yankees are moving on to the American League Championship Series, and Gleyber Torres hopes the Cleveland Guardians can tune in to watch.
While recording the final out in Tuesday's Game 5 of the ALDS against the Guardians, officially booting them from the postseason, Torres stood over second base and rocked an imaginary baby. It was a direct shot at slugger Josh Naylor, who made the same gesture while rounding the bases after hitting a solo homer off Gerrit Cole in the previous contest.
Following the decisive Game 5 victory, Torres called Naylor's celebration "disrespectful" and said his own was "revenge," according to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com.
"Now they can watch on TV," Torres added on the eve of the Yankees' Game 1 appointment in the ALCS against the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park.
