Sport Joe Kelly mocking the Astros is the first MLB meme of the 2020 season
7 photos of Joe Kelly mocking the Astros as benches cleared
It was the what the baseball world expected: after the Houston Astros cheating scandal rocked Major League Baseball, fans were waiting to see what opposing pitchers might do in retaliation. On Tuesday night, Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Joe Kelly appeared to deliberatel y throw at two Astros hitters, Alex Bregman and Carlos Correa and then mocked Correa. Astros manager Dusty Baker said that Kelly yelled “Nice swing (expletive)!” and benches cleared, although Kelly didn’t remember what he said. It was the moment in which he mocked the Astros, however, that’s gotten a lot off attention, particularly for the mock pout he put on.
You knew it as soon as you saw the footage andmocking , not long after he appeared to , Alex Bregman and Carlos Correa.
The faces he made were going to be turned into a GIF and become the first major meme of the 2020 MLB season.
And that’s exactly what happened. The memes are everywhere on Wednesday morning after Kelly’s faces were all over the interwebs (for what it’s worth,which escalated the whole thing).

Benches clear in first Astros-Dodgers game since scandal .
HOUSTON (AP) — Benches cleared Tuesday night in the first game between the Astros and Dodgers since it was revealed that Houston stole signs en route to a 2017 World Series championship that came at Los Angeles' expense. The fracas occurred after Dodgers reliever Joe Kelly threw high-and-tight pitches to Astros stars Alex Bregman and Carlos Correa in the sixth inning. The Dodgers led 5-2 after a five-run fifth when Kelly, who was with Boston in 2017 and also faced Houston that postseason, threw behind Bregman for ball four. Bregman grimaced after jumping to avoid being hit, then trotted to first base.
