MLB: Seattle Mariners at Los Angeles Angels Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

The Mariners won again last night, securing the first two games of a four game series against the Angels on the road. A highlight of the night was Dee Gordon robbing Mike Trout of a home run.

According to Ryan Divish, members of the Angels’ media didn’t take fondly to Gordon’s reaction.

Is it just me or is that the most ridiculous thing to be upset about. Imagine not reacting after robbing Mike Trout of a home run? That sounds impossible.

I hope you celebrate like Dee Gordon after reading these links.
