Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw gave Braves young star Dansby Swanson a teachable moment in the most recent meeting between the teams.
The Braves and Dodgers squared off in LA on Wednesday night, and when Swanson took too long getting ready for an at-bat, Kershaw was not having it — especially in front of the home crowd.
Swanson stepped out of the box for quite a long time at one point, clearly taking his time, which led to a frustrated Kershaw stepping off the mound, then saying the following:
“Let’s f—ing go!” Kershaw barked.
And then he put Swanson to sleep with this nasty curve ball — his patented strikeout pitch.
Don’t poke the bear.
