Outside of the actual baseball games, the best thing about the MLB postseason this year has been David Ortiz joining Fox Sports’ MLB studio show — more specifically the ongoing trolling between Papi and Alex Rodriguez.
Fox’s show also features analysts Frank Thomas and Keith Hernandez, but the back-and-forth between A-Rod and Big Papi and their respective Yankees and Red Sox legacies is the best daily subplot. So we’ve far we’ve seen Ortiz burning A-Rod for picking the Yankees, A-Rod bringing in his Yankees World Series ring and Ortiz wearing a tad-too-small Red Sox helmet.
But A-Rod upped the stakes Wednesday night, when he shared this video on social media during which he sneaks up behind Ortiz and puts a Yankees jacket on him. It went over as well as you’d imagine:

It’s great because Ortiz looks almost appreciative for a second before he realized exactly what type of jacket A-Rod is putting on him. And it was fitting after the Yankees came back to take a 3-2 lead in their ALCS with the Houston Astros.
We’re fairly certain Papi will answer A-Rod’s Yankees sneak attack with a prank of his own. And we can’t wait.
