About two weeks ago, Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Joe Kelly threw at the heads of Alex Bregman and Carlos Correa. What ensued was a benches-clearing situation that went against MLB protocols regarding COVID-19.
As Kelly was walking off the mound, he stuck his tongue out at the Astros bench and mocked them. This has been a consistent trend across the league, as most players believe the Astros deserve some sort of consequences for their cheating actions that subsequently won them a World Series title. The players didnâ€™t receive any suspensions, snitching their way out of the situation, Kelly would express on Ross Striplingâ€™s the â€œBig Swing Podcast.â€
For throwing out their heads, Kelly was suspended eight games, which social media and players took personally, considering the lack of consequences for the Astrosâ€™ players.
“I think I’ll be irritated forever.”
