During today’s Seattle Mariners vs. Texas Rangers game Felix Hernandez chirped back and forth with one another during Beltre’s first at-bat in the 2nd inning.
I know King Felix and Beltre go way back with one another, but even if I was best friends with the Beltre, I would never have the balls to talk smack to him. In my opinion, he is one of the scarier players in the MLB as he always seems ticked off.
Usually, I hate it when I see friendships show in the middle of the game because it takes away from the intensity and makes it harder for the players to hate their opponents. However, for some reason, this got me pumped up. At first, you think it’s just playful, but then towards the end, you start questioning if there was a little bit of actual tension.
I still don’t really know what to make of it.
