“Jesse Winker talking s**t like he’s actually good” – Houston Astros fans mock Seattle Mariners outfielder Jesse Winker after he celebrates throwing out Jose Altuve with a cocky gesture 

Jesse Winker made the highlight reel. It was 1-1 game between the Houston Astros and Seattle Mariners in the bottom of the third inning. Jose Altuve was on second and Alex Bregman was at the plate. Mariners pitcher Logan Gilbert delivered a 1-1 fastball, and Bregman smacked it into left field.

Altuve raced around third base and set his sights on home plate, but Seattle’s left fielder, Jesse Winker, was two steps ahead of him. He flawlessly scooped up the ball and launched it to home plate. Altuve was tagged out by a mile.

This fan didn’t waste any time deriding Winker. He thinks the Mariners outfielder needs to improve his batting statistics before he can make a gesture like that.

However, not everyone agreed. In particular, Mariners fans came to Winker’s aid and made their support for him clear. This one loved the confident energy he showed after the play.

Everything from the execution to the celebration of what Jesse Winker just did was amazing. That collect and tag tho from Cal Raleigh was most impressive

This Mariners fan doesn’t agree. They like Winker, but just can’t get past his poor offensive output this season. Playing for the Cincinnati Reds last season, the 28-year-old hit .305. This year, he’s batting just .207.

If Jesse Winker could hit or run above average speed or play a decent left field, he would be my favorite Mariner.

This fan found Winker’s shadowboxing skills hilarious. Maybe that’s what gave him the arm to throw out Altuve with time to spare.

This user said that Winker got Jose Altuve “by a mile.” It’s true. Altuve was about halfway down the base path when the Mariners catcher scooped up the ball.

This Mariners fan isn’t digging Winker this season. He says that the outfielder can’t even hit a perfect pitch.
