Okay, so the lead photo doesn’t do my statement any justice, but if you’re from Boston you love this man.
Joe Kelly reignited the rivalry between the Sox and Yankees with one pitch.
Well… one pitch and a few punches, but you get the idea right?
It’s not often that you see a relief pitcher stand out on the Sox, but Joe Kelly was an ICON in Boston. He was the first relief pitcher I was sad to see leave.
Fast forward to the Astros and everyone hating their existence and us restarting the season.
Joe Kelly wasn’t on the Dodgers in 2017. He was on the Red Sox. Could there be some hatred there from a 3-1 series? I’d say no, but I’m not Joe. He pulled this move last night as a clear rebuttal to the trash can bangers.
I want to point out, this was Joe’s only strike out that night. Before that, he walked Bregman and buckled another hitter.
Good ol’ Joe decided to slam his massive nuts on the table and make the Astros stare with envy.
I can’t pretend like I’d do any different. If I struck out a toddler, I’d still strut around like I was a golden god. I’d make that diaper wearing fuck realize how dominant I am on the mound. (Spoiler: not very dominant.)
I love the taunt and celebration from you Joe, but maybe next time get one more strike out before you start taunting the Buzzers aka the Houston ASStros.
