Jose Ramirez calls out MLB The Show for getting his picture wrong

Jose Ramirez isn’t going to let himself be disrespected virtually.

The Cleveland Indians infielder took to Twitter on Friday to call out popular video game franchise MLB The Show for getting his picture wrong in their latest release for 2017 and showing an image of Atlanta Braves pitcher Jose Ramirez in an Indians hat instead, apparently for the second year in a row.

The Indians’ Ramirez was a stud in 2016, batting .312/.363/.462 with 11 home runs, 76 RBIs, and 22 stolen bases. You would think that (combined with his pilary exploits) would be enough to differentiate him from the other Ramirez, who made just 33 relief appearances for the Braves last season.

Fortunately, the MLB The Show crew was sensitive to the Ramirez plight.

All’s well that ends well, I suppose.
