MLB Players, Internet Weigh In On Rougned Odor-Jose Bautista Fracas


Things went from zero to 100 real quick in Sunday’s game between the Toronto Blue Jays and Texas Rangers at Globe Life Park.

After Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista went in with a hard slide at second base, Texas’ Rougned Odor started an all-out brawl by catching Bautista square in the face with a mean right hook.

The game featured eight ejections and caught the attention of the Major League Baseball world, which took to Twitter to take sides. Some opinions, like that of Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman, were predictable.

Recently retired outfielder Torii Hunter, who made an interesting observation about Odor’s throw to first on Bautista’s slide, was among the other MLB players who weighed in.

The Internet also did as the Internet does in these situations. One Twitter user pointed out that Bautista follows Odor on Twitter (awkward), while another brought attention to the awesome update to Odor’s Wikipedia page.

And, since this is 2016, Bautista quickly got the “Crying Jordan” treatment.
