Celtics legend Bill Russell isn’t giving up on hope for Banner 18 in 2023
Jose Ramirez trolling Freddie Freeman while mic’d up is hilarious in-game baseball content.
While Jose Ramirez and Freddie Freeman are among the very best players MLB has to offer, it is always great to see one star troll another while mic’d up.
The Cleveland Guardians star poked fun at the new first baseman for the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night. Ramirez was caught on camera debating if Freeman was a former Gold Glove winner during his career with the Atlanta Braves. He then said Freeman was a great hitter, but nowhere near as good as him. The Guardians beat the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium in extra innings on Friday.
We absolutely cannot wait for the Midsummer Classic that just so happens to be in Los Angeles…
Jose Ramirez hilariously trolls Freddie Freeman while he was mic’d up
Even if Ramirez was only joking, this is the type of on-field interactions MLB needs to take advantage of. If a marquee player like Ramirez or Freeman has any semblance of a personality, let the entire world know instead of giving the blandest human being alive in Mike Trout a microphone to say absolutely nothing. Baseball needs to be all-aboard its players having great personalities.
As far as how the first half of the 2022 MLB season is going for the Dodgers and the Guardians, Los Angeles is still a total juggernaut out west, while Cleveland is playing some great baseball as a playoff contender in the heart of America. Cleveland may have been lucky to take Friday’s game in extra innings, but winning its rare road series in Los Angeles could be a huge boost for this team.
Ultimately, it is easy for some of the best players in the game today to have some fun when their teams are playing winning baseball. If the Guardians were atrocious, Ramirez may not have been so comfortable poking the big bear over at first base for the Dodgers. Regardless, this is the type of viral content baseball is in dire need of. Keep mic’ing up interesting dudes for our enjoyment.
As long as baseball never mic’s up Mike Trout again, the sport will continue to regain its footing.
