With the second round of the MLB All-Star Game Starters Vote getting underway on Tuesday, Cubs catcher Willson Contreras didn't waste any time showing voters why he deserves the starting nod at catcher -- though, those votes probably won't come from Braves fans. Check out Monday night's blast with a bonus jawing match!
Contreras and Flowers don't have a documented history, but Contreras did watch the ball after it flew off the bat. You have to imagine Flowers took exception to the showboating.
For what it's worth, Contreras's 16th of the season was an opposite field bomb.

And yes, the trash talking started the very second the ball left the bat. Depending on which side of this budding rivalry you're on, you likely have a very different opinion of "letting the kids play" on this fine evening.
