Was Yunel Escobar Trolling Blue Jays Fans?
First, there was the home run celebration that manager Joe Maddon says will never happen again.
#Rays Maddon said he'll talk to Escobar about his reaction to homer and it won't happen again. Escobar said he does that all the time on HRs— Marc Topkin (@TBTimes_Rays) May 20, 2013
And then Sportsnet cameras caught some bizarre behavior.
There was the helmet slam in the dugout after hitting a two-run homer.
It's a good bet that Escobar's reaction had something to do with the reception from the crowd at Rogers Centre.
Even louder boos in Escobar's 3rd trip to the plate. It's as if more and more people are remembering who he is. #bluejays— Brendan Kennedy (@BKennedyStar) May 20, 2013
And finally, there was this gesture after what appears to be him staring down the camera.
Perhaps there's nothing really here. But there probably is.
