Prior to Wednesday’s win for the Indians over the Blue Jays, a game in which the Indians sent rookie starter Ryan Merritt to the mound, Jose Bautista threw out a quote that I bet he’d like to have back, after Merritt pitched a gem against his team.
Jose Bautista was quoted as saying, “Not having seen him is something that could go either way but, with the experience in our lineup, I’m pretty sure he’s going to be shaking in his boots more than we are.”
So being the absolute savage he is, and the fact that Wednesday’s game fell on Jose Bautista’s birthday, Indians’ pitcher Trevor Bauer threw up this dynamite tweet:
