Third baseman Alex Bregman made it pretty clear after the Houston Astros swept the Cleveland Indians during the ALDS: This is not how you should treat the defending world champions.
"I want to end with saying one thing," Bregman told ESPN's Scott Van Pelt in an interview during the team's locker-room celebration after an 11-3 win sealed a return trip to the ALCS. "Does Floyd Mayweather fight the first fight of the night, or is he the main event? I mean, does Tiger Woods tee off at 8 a.m.?
Major League Baseball, which sets the postseason schedule, had all three games of the Indians-Astros series during the day, with first pitch at 2 p.m., 4:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. ET.
Bregman went 5-for-9 in the sweep of the Indians, hitting two of the Astros' eight home runs while driving in four runs.
Maybe this is why he went out so hard, venting about all his boyfriends.
At least his nights are free for him to get drunk.
