We are now down to just two teams in the MLB postseason.
The Atlanta Braves, World Series champions from a season ago, are not one of the two teams remaining.
They saw their title defense come to an end in Game 4 of the NLDS against the Philadelphia Phillies.
National League Rookie of the Year candidate Michael Harris II slumped the entire series and hit for a poor .071 average in the four games played.
On Twitter, a fan decided to take aim at Harris, accusing him of costing the Braves the NLDS and expressing frustration that he was recently seen bowling.
Harris had this to say in response.
You must not have a life outside of watching baseball🤷🏾♂️ kinda stinks https://t.co/kBpVSf4Kau

Harris Roasts A Critic
It’s interesting to see this fan criticizing Harris.
The Braves certainly would not have been where they were this year without the NL Rookie of the Year candidate.
But Harris quickly put the fan right back in his place.
When fans make assumptions like this, it shows the sheer lack of knowledge over certain topics.
At this point, the Braves season is over, and they won’t re-convene as a team until February.
Now is the perfect time for Harris to try some other things.
Somehow, the fact that Mookie Betts is an avid bowler during the offseason has escaped this fan’s mind.
Once the World Series is over, then it will be time to ramp up activities and begin preparing for 2023.
For now, this fan’s anger is misplaced.
Harris will certainly be motivated to improve next season after such a poor showing in the NLDS.
