In case you needed more reasons to hate the Houston Astros…here’s Yuli Gurriel making fun of Yu Darvish for being Asian

Houston Astros first baseman Yuli Gurriel appeared to mock Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Yu Darvish with a racist gesture during Game 3 of the World Series at Minute Maid Park on Friday night.
After he hit a home run in the bottom of the second inning, Gurriel was seen on the Fox broadcast pulling at his eyes in a gesture that appeared to mock Darvish’s Japanese heritage.
According to the Los Angeles Times’ Andy McCullough, Darvish called the gesture “disrespectful.”
“He made a mistake,” Darvish added, per McCullough. “He’ll learn from it. We’re all human beings.”
I’ve said it before and I will scream into the clouds from now until forever, FUUUUUCK the Houston Astros. This is a rare era as a Yankees fan where I can say with complete confidence that every player on the roster, man 1 through 25, is a genuinely good dude. Inversely, Everyone on the Astros are garbage humans. Even the manager got into a bar fight after losing Game 1.
Round of applause to Yu Darvish, future Yankee, for being such a standup guy and immediately forgiving Yuli Gurriel for his racist bullshit. Personally, I would’ve waited for him in the parking lot but he and I are a different breed of cat.
It’s always a super funny move to mock the ethnicity of the pitcher after hitting a home run off of him. Literally, add insult to injury. I’m shocked he didn’t whip out a fake box of Chinese take-out and pretend to eat with chopsticks.
Get Yuli Gurriel out of here forever. BOOOO the Houston Astros.
