Following the Mets blowout Game 3 win over the Dodgers, de Blasio took to Twitter to send some shade in the direction of Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti.
And what better target than New York City's new No. 1 villain.
Hey, @EricGarcetti. This is what happens when the @Dodgers don't play dirty! #LGM #WinForRuben #BeatLA #GarBlasioBet cc:@LAMayorsOffice— Bill de Blasio (@BilldeBlasio) October 13, 2015
Obviously the whole "don't play dirty" is a reference to Utley's take out side in Game 2, which broke Ruben Tejada's leg.
Utley did not play in Game 3, after MLB disciplinary czar Joe Torre for suspended the Dodgers second baseman for two games, pretty much to the disappointment of Mets fans at Citi Field. But it only helped ramp up de Blasio's bluster after his Mets took a two games to one lead in the best-of-five series.
Here's the video:
Di Blasio hasn't won too many of his political battles, but he at least has a chance with the Mets.Hey @ericgarcetti, you’re going to look real good in that @mikepiazza31 @Mets jersey. #LGM #GarBlasioBet: http://t.co/7rzANZzh2p— Bill de Blasio (@BilldeBlasio) October 9, 2015
Game 4 is Tuesday night at Citi Field.
