Dexter Fowler doesn’t have any love in his heart for the team that drafted him, the Colorado Rockies.
Fowler and the Chicago Cubs broke a 108-year World Series drought when they beat the Cleveland Indians in Game 7 Wednesday night. At the microphone after the Cubs’ victory parade, he threw some serious shade at the Rockies.
The center fielder played six years in Colorado before being traded to the Houston Astros in December of 2013. He played one year for Houston before being traded once again, this time to the Cubs.
Needless to say, he’s happy about how things turned out.
Fowler slugged three home runs and drove in six runs for Chicago in the playoffs. And while he wasn’t particularly hot at the plate during the World Series, he did get Game 7 kicked off with a bang when his lead off home run gave the Cubs an early 1-0 lead and some serious momentum in the pivotal, final game.
