Dodgers mock Madison Bumgarner with ‘Don’t look at me’ shirts, pose

Tuesday September 20th, 2016

Some of the Dodgers, including Yasiel Puig, Adrian Gonzalez, Justin Turner and Kenley Jansen, mocked Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner prior to their game on Monday night with shirts that read “#DONTLOOKATME,” and by covering their eyes.

Bumgarner started a benches-clearing scuffle on Monday night when he repeatedly yelled at Puig not to look at him. This caused Puig to inch closer, retorting.

The Dodgers had the last laugh; Bumgarner was pulled from the game after seven innings, apparently due to the altercation, and the team won in the bottom of the ninth on a walk-off single to the wall from Gonzalez.

Puig also signed a t-shirt and sent it to Bumgarner, according to ESPN's Marly Rivera.

We’ll see if the shirts and the pose get them in any trouble. But they’re all behind Puig, which is a good thing—he may have won them a crucial game on Monday.
