The feud between Joe Kelly and Lance McCullers has now gotten so personal that a wife is now joined in.
The war of words between the two pitchers began last week when Kelly called out the Astros players for allowing their coaches to take the fall in the cheating scandal. That prompted a response from the Houston Astros pitcher to blast him back for being misinformed and also for being a member of the 2018 Boston Red Sox team that was investigated for cheating as well.
On Wednesday, it was Kelly’s wife Ashley’s turn to chime in as she took to Instagram and scoffed at the idea that her husband was fearful of Astros slugger Carlos Correa, which McCullers had also alluded to.
“You, McMuffin,” she wrote. “Anyone who knows or has played with the ‘skinny motherf–ker” would know that he would attempt to take on a 300lb offensive lineman knowing that he would lose. He’s not afraid of anyone … especially your pal (who honestly has a nice swing).”
Ashley then concluded her remarks by wishing McCullers the best of luck.
