“I just watch my boys, hoping they can pump up a little, just to know we can do it,” he said, alluding to his teammates.
Tatis added: “There was no disrespect at all. I’ve never looked at a pitcher, I’ve never looked at them. I just watched my boys, trying to pump them up a little more. I see no disrespect in that. I just try and enjoy my game. “
