Jose Bautista suggested Cleveland starter Ryan Merritt would be “shaking in his boots” against Toronto’s veteran lineup. The young lefty went out and threw 4.1 innings of scoreless ball, retiring Bautista in both at-bats, as the Indians advance to the World Series with a 3-0 victory.
Merritt’s teammates Corey Kluber and Jason Kipnis took some time away from celebrating to respond to Bautista’s comments.
Good to see Kluber has photoshop on his phone. That’s quality work.
