The Dodgers are in Houston to play 2 games against the Astros this week. Given the history between the 2 teams, all eyes in baseball are on Houston to watch them go at it for a very brief series.
As it turns out, Dodgers fans didn’t have to wait long for the drama to start. Austin Barnes already gave his thoughts on being back in Houston and how he won’t ever forget what the Astros did. But that wasn’t all.
Dodgers’ third baseman Justin Turner posted this picture on Instagram hours before the game. At first glance, it looks pretty harmless. But then you realize he’s posing in front of a trash can, and you can’t help but think it was posted with purpose. Especially reading into the caption.
Did JT mean it as a slight against the Astros? Maybe, maybe not. But it’s still fun to imagine the Dodgers infielder taking a shot at the Houston Cheaters. First-pitch tonight is at 5:10 Los Angeles time with Clayton Kershaw on the mound. He goes up against Astros pitcher Zack Greinke.
