While the Dallas jab was clever, the team seems to have forgotten who walked away from the Toronto-Texas ALDS victorious, and the Maple Leafs Twitter account was happy to remind them, using the instantly iconic bat flip photo from Jose Bautista’s three-run home run against the Rangers.

From there the argument quickly devolved to the fourth-grade level, as many internet conversations do.
