We regret to inform you all that Atlanta Braves announcer Joe Simpson is at it again. The old fart who went viral a week ago for bitching and moaning about the Dodgers wearing shorts and tees during batting practice annoyed some fans Tuesday by questioning if Nationals stud rookie Juan Soto is really a teenager.
“If he’s 19, he has certainly got his man growth,” Joe stated during the seventh inning of Game 1 between the Braves and Nats.
An old, white homer acting ignorant in the booth really shouldn’t ruffle any feathers — what do you expect????? — but, of course, baseball Twitter was pissed:
The 19-year-old phenom is enjoying a monster rookie season with the Nats, slashing a ridiculous .310/.424/.556 with 13 home runs in 66 games. Soto played in the minors for just two seasons before getting called up (for good) in May.
