The Boston Red Sox have had a frustrating start to the season. At 6-10, they're sitting at the bottom of the AL East standings.

That frustration is clearly getting to first baseman Michael Chavis, who showed it after Kevin Kiermaier robbed Jonathan Arauz with a beautiful catch in the second inning of Monday's game.

Middle fingers have been flying in the MLB this season, and Chavis looked like he was trying to sneak that one in unnoticed. The cameras caught him though, despite his effort to hide it right away.

The Sox had already jumped out to a 3-1 lead in the first inning of this game, and they were looking to give themselves some more breathing room in the second inning when this play went down.

If Chavis knew how the rest of the game was going to play out, he might have reacted even more strongly. Ultimately the Red Sox lost by one run, 8-7, so if this one carried over the wall or even landed for extra bases, it really could have proved to be a deciding factor in the outcome.
