SJ - April 25, 2022

Over the weekend a wild scene broke out in the Bronx as the Guardians took on the Yankees.  Guardians outfielder Steven Kwan was shaken up after running into a wall attempting to make a play, he stayed in the game.

Fans in the area chirped the Guardians outfielders as Kwan was being looked at.  After Kwan was looked at, and the Guardians manager and trainer made their way off the field, centerfielder Myles Straw hopped up on the fence to confront a Yankees fan.

The Yankees went on to win the game in walk-off fashion and fans threw trash at the Guardians outfielders to celebrate.  After the game Straw called Yankees fans "classless" and "the worst fan base on the planet."

That was before the video of Straw confronting the Yankees fan surfaced.  It turns out Straw asked to be hit.  His words were actually "hit me motherfucker."  He repeatedly screamed this at the fan.  Sounds like a pretty clear invite to me.

Worst fan base in baseball?  Or softest outfielder in baseball?  He can't take a little chirping.  Then thinks he's tough enough to fight an entire section at Yankee Stadium, because had he actually gone into the stands the fans would have eaten him alive.
