Dodgers pitcher Joe Kelly made a lot of fans last season when he took on the entire Houston Astros team when competing against them in their first matchup since Houston’s sign-stealing scandal.
Kelly’s pouting face he flashed to the Astros dugout during the whole scene has taken on a life of its own, been put on shirts, seen on billboards. Simply put, most baseball fans love Joe Kelly now.
So when Kelly received his World Series ring at Dodger Stadium today, he made sure to throw some shade at the Houston Astros, and any other haters he may have.

The face says it all.
Joe Kelly and the Dodgers are on cloud nine right now. They’re coming off their first World Series since 1988, they have far and away the best roster in the MLB, and they get to play in LA. What could be better?
I think it’s safe to say Joe Kelly has bragging rights over the Astros for a long time to come.
