Adolis Garcia walked the walk, so now he gets to talk the talk.
Garcia put the Texas Rangers on his back during the ALCS, single-handedly destroying the Houston Astros. He homered in each of the final four games of the series and saved his best for last, going 4-for-5 with a pair of homers and 5 RBIs as the Rangers routed the Astros in Game 7.
After the game, Garcia was quick to troll Houston on Twitter.
Adolis Garcia Trolls Astros Fans
The Texas slugger simply posted a tweet with a bunch of "shhh" emojis, which is obviously directed at Astros fans. Garcia and his teammates shut them up in their home ballpark by winning all four games in Houston, including the last two in dominant fashion.
Astros pitchers simply had no answer for Garcia, who was an unstoppable force at the plate. The ALCS MVP finished the series batting .357/.400/.893 with 5 homers and a postseason record 15 RBIs.
Garcia became a major target for Houston fans after Game 5, when he admired his long home run and then started a ruckus after getting hit by a pitch his next time up. The fiery slugger immediately started yelling at Astros catcher Martin Maldonado, causing both benches to clear and ultimately getting pitcher Bryan Abreu suspended for the first two games of the 2024 season.
Houston and its fans spent much of the day leading up to Game 7 whining about the impending suspension and criticizing Garcia for his role in the incident. Garcia responded to the controversy with an epic performance in Game 7, letting his bat do the talking and quieting the crowd at Minute Maid Park in the process.
The Astros can complain all they want, but because of Garcia the Rangers are moving on to the World Series and they're not.
