LOOK: Indians troll Blue Jays' Jose Bautista on Twitter, take poll for excuses
The Indians are up 2-0 in the ALCS, and the Toronto slugger recently blamed 'circumstances' for his team's current straits
As previously noted within these mobile-enabled pages, Blue Jays cloutsman Jose Bautista, whose team is down 2-0 to the Indians in the ALCS, recently blamed "circumstances" for said series deficit. Here's the original quote from Joey Bats ...
While it certainly sounds like Bautista is blaming conspiratorial elements for the 2016 ALCS results to date, some speculated that he was talking about things like weather and poor afternoon hitting visuals, that kind of thing. But let's go with conspiratorial elements. Predictably enough, the Indians' Twitter account -- tops among all MLB Twitter accounts -- responded like a hairy and dyspeptic man-beast who lives under a bridge.
First came this withering rejoinder ...
And then came the democratic call-to-action ...
We've had sign stealing and circumstances.— Cleveland Indians (@Indians) October 17, 2016
