Houston Astros manager A.J. Hinch was involved in a heated altercation at a bar at the team’s hotel in Pasadena, Calif., after Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday, according to TMZ Sports.
Hinch was apparently having drinks when hotel guests came in and talked trash about the Astros, who had lost the World Series opener to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The 43-year-old “snapped” and cursed in the middle of the bar, according to TMZ’s sources, with one witness telling them the incident turned physical before police were called.
My hate for the Houston Astros grows and grows as every sand from the hourglass falls. That was a poetic way of saying FUCK the Houston Astros and now, BOOOO at their manager, AJ Hinch. Of course the manager of the team I hate the most is a bar tough guy. Of course.
Here’s the thing about being the manager of the road team going out to a bar in Los Angeles after a loss, you’re going to get heckled. People are going to talk shit to you. Maybe just stay in the hotel room and think about how you’re going to win Game 2 and not slam beers in enemy territory and act surprised when fans are rude to you.
James Harden got eliminated from the playoffs last season and hit up the club. The internet ripped him. AJ Hinch lost in the World Series and tried to fight people at the bar. I hope the Houston Astros lose every single game the rest of time.
