LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Dodgers just threw kerosene on the fire.
Less than 24 hours after Yasiel Puig and Giants starter Madison Bumgarner made headlines after they instigated a benches clearing brouhaha, Puig's teammates threw some salt on the wound by wearing some not-so-subtle t-shirts.
Before Tuesday's game between the bitter rivals, multiple teammates including Puig posted photos of themselves on social media wearing Dodger blue t-shirts with the hashtag "#DONTLOOKATME" on it.
The message was a clear shot at Bumgarner who was seen on video yelling, "Don't look at me! Don’t [expletive] look at me!" toward Puig as he walked off the field after the seventh inning. Puig responded by saying, "What are you gonna do about it?" and the rest will go down in "fake fight" history.
Teammates Adrian Gonzalez, Justin Turner, Kenley Jansen, Jose De Leon and Puig were all sporting the shirts, which were allegedly distributed by the red-headed third baseman when players arrived at Dodger Stadium.
Turner said he isn't concerned about any repercussions from the t-shirts spilling over into the game and even joked that he thought Bumgarner and Puig enjoy breakfast together every time the two teams play each other.
Bumgarner spoke with the media before the game and said, "If it were turned around, I'm sure we would do the same."
First pitch is scheduled for 7:10PM PST and it shouldn't take long to find out if San Francisco starter Johnny Cueto throws at Puig.
