If You’re Having a Shitty Year and You Cuss Your Coach Out, You’re Going to Get Sent Down
Ken Giles just said "F you man" to AJ Hinch when pulled after giving up two hits and not recording an out in the 9th. Please get rid of him. pic.twitter.com/jvoVh5bI6Y

The Astros have optioned RHP Ken Giles to Triple A Fresno and have recalled LHP Cionel Pérez from Double A Corpus Christi.

Yeah, so Giles has been struggling a bit. He’s a great young pitcher, but this hasn’t been his year. But no matter how much you’re struggling, you don’t drop a big “fuck you” to your coach. That’s just asking to be traded, released, or optioned. And sure enough, Giles got sent down.
Hopefully he finds his groove in Fresno. He’s a fun guy to watch, plus I always love getting to see psychopath pitchers take the mound. Either they do really well and go crazy while emasculating the batter, and if they struggle then they physically destroy themselves and everything around them. ALWAYS fun to watch.
If you went to bed early, you might have missed Ken Giles punching himself in the face. (Via MLB) pic.twitter.com/AYuOcDy0t5
