SJ - October 8, 2020
The Padres and Dodgers exchanged words in the 7th inning of Game 2 on Wednesday night after Dodgers reliever Brusdar Graterol glove flipped. The glove flip came after Cody Bellinger robbed Fernando Tatis Jr. of a home run.
Graterol's glove flip also came after a Manny Machado bat flip earlier in the game. The Padres weren't fans of the glove flip and the two sides screamed at each other before retreating to their dugouts.

Glove flips were the natural next step in the showboating game. If you love bat flips and love to glorify them like the MLB does, then you really can't have a problem with a pitcher throwing his glove like a complete asshole.
Way to go baseball.
