Major League Baseball is back, the Atlanta Braves are looking to defend their world Series, and before we even get the first pitch, beef is already brewing.
For the past few years, there have been two major faces of Atlanta Braves baseball…
First baseman Freddie Freeman, and outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr.
Both players played a massive part in their impressive World Series run last year, even though Acuna went down with a torn ACL midway through the season.
With that being said, Freeman ended his 12-year-career with the Braves this past offseason as they couldn’t reach a deal, and the first baseman is now a Los Angeles Dodger (like they aren’t already stacked enough).
If you don’t know much about Freeman, there’s one thing for certain from the exterior…
He’s one of the good guys of baseball.
He’s a huge family man who devoted practically his whole career to one organization, even though the majority of those seasons were God awful for the Braves. Not to mention, there’s not a player in the league who has one bad thing to say about the guy…
Except for one, and that’s no other than Acuna himself.
Acuna went on Instagram Live last night, and speaking in Spanish, he allegedly said the the following about Freddie:
Ronald Acuña Jr. was just on IG Live and according to our resident bilingual r/Braves user, he said:
– He won't miss Freddie Freeman. – They had friction. – Freeman didn't care when he was plunked. – He was overbearing. – He wasn't someone Ronald could talk to ever.
There seems to be a lot of skepticism and that's perfectly fine. I verified this with two separate Spanish speaking users that I have known for quite a while. The r/Braves thread is here: https://t.co/n6cZCf5gBO
