The idea of mic'ing up MLB players during games has caught fire over the last few seasons and Jose Ramirez is the latest player to go viral with a hilarious quote. The Cleveland Guardians star heckled Freddie Freeman of the Los Angeles Dodgers from the dugout in the team's 2-1 win Friday night.

After asking Freeman about his Gold Glove, Ramirez told the five-time All-Star that he is one of the best hitters in the league. It was only a moment or two before he added "after me." The comment got an immediate laugh out of Ramirez's teammates and provided fans with an insight to his personality.

There's no denying that Freeman and Ramirez have both excelled at the plate in their career. They each own a career on-base percentage over .355 and have combined to earn six Silver Slugger awards. In 2022, Ramirez has the edge over Freeman considering he leads the league with 62 RBI.

It was an even battle on Friday night, though. Ramirez went 1 for 4, scoring one of the Guardians two runs and striking out once. Meanwhile, Freeman also went 1 for 4 and drew a walk, striking out once as well. Cleveland got the last laugh in the end thanks to a 10th-inning sacrifice fly by Richie Palacios.

If this interaction was any indication, this won't be the last time we see Ramirez mic'd up. The Guardians will aim to keep a hold of their current AL Wild Card spot and have odds set at +7500 to win the World Series, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
