VIDEO: Ji-Man Choi Trolls Astros on Instagram Live Ahead of ALCS Matchup
The Tampa Bay Rays continued their impressive run in 2020 on Friday night with a 2-1 victory over the favored New York Yankees in Game 5 of the ALDS.
While many have been counting out the Rays from the start as serious World Series contenders, they continue to win games and move on.
Now, they prepare to move on to the ALCS, where the Houston Astros await. The Astros are unanimously everyone's least favorite team in baseball right now, following their sign-stealing scandal.
Ji-Man Choi is a key player in the Rays' success. After last night's win, Choi took to instagram live during the celebration to give the fans a peak at what was going on. And Choi used some of that time to take a noticeable shot at the Astros.
At one point, Choi knocks over a recycling bin and continuously kicks and stomps on it. This was of course was a dig at the Astros, who used trash cans to help relay the signs they were stealing in real-time.
Fans have really taken to Choi and this Rays team. They have an "us against the world" mentality. Now, they are set to play against an Astros team who's only option all season was to have that same mentality. It should make for a fantastic ALCS. Tampa is -170 favorites to win the ALCS, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
