On Monday night the Los Angeles Dodgers authored a stirring comeback against Madison Bumgarner and the San Francisco Giants to further pad their lead in the National League West. The comeback was started after a stare-down and near brawl erupted between Bumgarner and Yasiel Puig.
After the Giants hurler got Puig out in the bottom of the 7th, he didn’t like the way the Cuban outfielder was looking at him and shouted “Don’t look at me” in his direction. That set off the fracas.
Now the Dodgers are embracing that moment by wearing #DONTLOOKATME t-shirts.
I’m just about the furthest thing from a Dodgers fan on the planet, but I have to give credit where it’s due: this is expert-level trolling of their biggest rival.
Bumgarner doesn’t seem like the kind of guy who would take a joke — at his expense — well. If that is indeed the case, he’s not going to like this one bit.
