Dodgers: Former LA Outfielder Joc Pederson Trolls Fernando Tatis Jr. After Monster Homer

No matter how much we dislike it, baseball is a business and sometimes that means saying goodbye to the players we’ve come to love. That happened to be the case this past offseason as Joc Pederson departed via free agency and found a new ball club on the north side of Chicago.

While he is no longer a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers, he’ll always be one in the hearts of fans and maybe in his own heart as well.

Despite no longer being with the team he’s spent most of his career with, Joc seems to still have their back or at the very least has it out for his former division rivals. During the Cubs Wednesday afternoon game against the San Diego Padres, Joc Pederson took former Dodger teammate Yu Darvish deep in the 4th inning to tie the game. Pederson, who doesn’t shy away from celebrating a big moment, saw the chance to do so.

As Joc was rounding third, he took the opportunity to mimic Fernando Tatis Jr. and his stutter step. 

Tatis has broken out the stutter-step against the Dodgers and multiple other teams after hitting a home run. While it can be seen as him trying to disrespect the opposing team, it’s also the 22-year-old’s way of celebrating and enjoying the game. He’s also managed to troll Trevor Bauer and his celebrations while the two division rivals have met twice this season.

As for Pederson, he could still have some Dodger blue in his veins or he could very well just want to join in on the fun. Whatever may be the reason, it sure is making baseball fun and interesting to watch! I’m sure Dodgers and Cubs fans alike will enjoy watching this highlight for quite a while.

  1. Joc should end up with a good set of stats in Wrigley if he sticks around there a few years. Wind blows out to right and center most days. Night time not so much; but doesn’t really blow in. He was always a good Dodger. I wish him well.

  2. I miss Joc, glad he is on a team that,while rebuilding, can give me a chance to play every day…and to work on hitting lefties….Funny in the minors Joc creamed lefties….I wish him the best….

  3. Only for strategic reason, I have been looking at the number of walks taken by Muncy for. A walk is good as a hit theory. We could try it and see for ourselves.

  4. Joc is a good dude having fun! I’m making sure Neeks keeps taking care of him the latest Union LA.
