Wednesday July 22nd, 2015

Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman Howie Kendrick took to Instagram to discuss baseball critics as well as his personal hobbies, which include gun collecting. 

The rant came after Kendrick posted an image of a handgun to inform his followers that he recently ordered two firearms from Rainier Arms, LLC. Kendrick noted he is a resident of Arizona, which has lax gun laws. The photo of the weapon has garnered over 2,000 likes, drawing comments from gun supporters and gun control activists. 

Kendrick also discussed fan criticism of the teams, saying that “it's easy to sit on the couch and be a good coach or player.”

Kendrick also proclaimed that the Dodgers are “fine,” as Los Angeles sits in first place in the National League West with a 53-42 record. Kendrick is hitting .291 on the year with seven home runs and 40 RBIs.
