Social media trash talk isn’t just the domain of the NBA anymore.

Social media trash talk isn’t just the domain of the NBA anymore. 

The day before facing Nathan Eovaldi in Game 3 of the ALCS, Astros third baseman Alex Bregman posted a video on his Instagram story of a game from late June when Eovaldi, then pitching for the Rays, allowed back-to-back-to-back homers to George Springer, Bregman and Jose Altuve. 

Eovaldi pitched well in Game 3 (even though Bregman did an RBI double off of him), pacing the Red Sox to a win. In Game 5, with the Red Sox on the verge of clinching a World Series berth, Eovaldi was called on to shut down Astros again in relief and humiliated Bregman with a 102-mph fastball up and away. 

Game 5 starter David Price was pumped up and had a message for Bregman. 

After the game, the Red Sox team Twitter account mimicked Bregman’s Instagram caption when it posted a video of the champagne celebration in the clubhouse. 

Let’s be honest, this is a lot more fun than throwing a fastball at a guy because of the “unwritten rules.”
