The Reds set themselves up for an epic burn from their in-state rivals the Indians on Tuesday when they posted a seemingly harmless photo of the day’s lineup next to some shoes with “REDLEGS” written on the back.

Cleveland quickly deployed one of the internet’s current favorite catchphrases in order to burn its fellow Ohio residents.

The Browns also jumped in to let congratulate the Indians on their well timed response.

The Reds should not fret too much though, as even the great Michael Jordan has fallen victim to the joke.
